Quote of the Day

Sunday, June 18, 2006

From the Comments Section for the article Risks of raising hopes, at the Guardian Unlimited:
"The idea terrorism is lurking behind every door, under every stone in every corner of the globe is evidently extremely potent, and is a classic example of the runaway success of the Bush administrations scare manufacturing. Of course terror groups have existed since the dawn of man. Most countries have experienced terrorism to some extent and yet don't feel the need to start a Global War On Terror. Why? because they understand they'd be throwing the baby out with the bathwater. If you're treating cancer, you don't start by killing the patient. When 9/11 happened it was [as] if the Americans woke up to a reality the rest of the World was already living in, but America thought it had a monopoly on suffering. America's been hit so now we all have to go stamping around with our torches and pitchforks. Naturally the Whitehouse has no intention of getting to the root cause of terrorism, why start now? But for Eddie Sixpack American to follow unquestioningly is surely a pinnacle of unpatriotic behaviour. Then again, when you're a hammer every problem looks like a nail..." (Slightly edited for clarity.)
