We are the stupid ones

Reader comment on item: Stupid Terrorists

Submitted by John Giannasca (Australia), Oct 20, 2005 at 00:56

Hey Dr Pipes I've got it. We are the stupid ones. We are the ones that have allowed this very situation to develop... We have become so politically correct that we have not only made it possible for them to exist but to say and do almost anything they like in order to promote their way of life by destroying ours. We sit on the sidelines making disparraging remarks at moderate muslims that do nothing to stem the tide of hatred, while doing nothing ourselves... We critise our government when at last it does do something. We site a personal loss of liberty as our reason for opposing measures that may combat terrosim. We may not have put the bomb in their hands, but I think we know that though many years of sitting on our own hands we havent exactly made it hard for them.
