Reader comment on item: What Security Measures vis-à-vis Western Muslims?
in response to reader comment: Terrorism is WRONG!!!

Submitted by brew crew (Canada), Mar 13, 2012 at 01:30

The united states of america is suspect of one of the largest terrorist attacks in the worlds history when they bombed heroshima and nagasaki and you're saying that these people who live in developing countries are suspect because they are only following the same terrorist attacks and terrorism tactics that have been employed for centuries. To instill fear for a greater good. Obviously to murder noncombatants and innocent people is wrong- We know that already. However we are the teachers and forefathers of the terrorism that goes on everyday in these eastern countries. We live in a society where terrorism is misinterpreted and changed so that us westerners don't see the terrorism our governments use everyday. terrorism is not just violence, it is the ability to install fear in others, through direct or indirect action, to persuade or make change to create an end game.
