Reader comment on item: [Beslan Atrocity:] They're Terrorists - Not Activists

Submitted by Robert Day (United Kingdom), Sep 8, 2004 at 09:53

One man's terrorist is his opponent's freedom fighter.
One man's soldier is another's state sponsored terrorist.
Russians call those Chechens who murder their friends terrorists.
Chechens call those Russians who shoot from tanks oppressors...

I'd prefer my news to be written without bias about who is right. Tell me what Palestinians and Israelis do to each other. Tell me what Westeners and Arabs do to each other. I'll make my own mind up about who is the terrorist thank you.
