A thought on conspiracy theories...

Reader comment on item: Those Danish Cartoons and Me

Submitted by two_heroes (United States), Feb 23, 2006 at 13:51

There's an impossible conspiracy that would never materialize, however interesting the result may be: for all mass media - just for one month! - to forget the Middle East exist, to boycott all the news from there period.

I have noticed that whatever is said by that restless bunch's leaders is chiefly addressed to someone else, namely the West. They don't talk to their people on anything that would improve their lives - and they should. Until the West will be paying more attention to their 'plight' that they do themselves, it will never end.

Again - logically, if there would be no "West" to blame, they'd tend to their own business. Well, we can't disappear, but that "do not call" policy... I think there's something in it.
