Reader comment on item: [Breivik and] Norway's Terrorism in Context

Submitted by A. Chaver (United States), Jul 27, 2011 at 08:37

There are no rational solutions for irrational behavior --war is irrational and the bombing in Norway is irrational

But the few irrational reactions which you refer to in your article maybe the slow start of of reaction to the thousands of Irrational actions perpetrated in the name and mainfesto of Islam - the western powers are impotent in stopping those attacks within the confines of rational/contitutional behavior--

What we may be witnessing is the breakdown of society as we know it to be and the start the wild west reaction all the way posse-"Lone Ranger" outlaw etc. reaction that can only be stopped by govermental action to apprehend and punish the enemy -As people everwhere are enbolded to risk even sacrifice their lives and freedom as this bomber has and as the Jihadis do -the Norway incident may well become the norm

Putting the Norway bomber down as" insane" freakish'etc is only helping the inept western governments to control their own civilians instead of controling the enemy attackers-and after all it is the civilians who are being attacked relentlessly by the terrorists
