2. It has only made it worse
Philip Henika a respected member of move-on has stated over and over again that Peacebuilding is the only way to transform our world. I hope we can get on this because things are not looking good.

7. Anybody who knows even a little about terrorism
Anybody who knows even a little about terrorism knows that acts of terrorism are a specific type of violent tactic used by desperate and misguided individuals, small religious cults and marginal political movements in order to deliver a message - as well as to exact their own twisted version of justice.

The correct response to a terrorist group is dedicated, highly skilled, and well funded forensic and police work. An international cooperation of police bureaus and intelligence agencies such as Interpol and the FBI, and local police units.

"Terrorism" IS NOT some dark new philosophy that hates "our freedoms". (What a pile of crap!) If you listen to the way he frames it in his rambling, incoherent speeches, Bush would have us all believe that "Terrorism" is some dangerous new 21st century Islam-based ideology. An ideology of terror, like other evil ideologies such as socialism, communism, fascism...

---Not Capitalism though. Capitalism is all about the freedom to make a buck without being hindered by any laws, ethics, or social contracts of any kind. Also, everyone knows that Jesus like all of us Murikans, was a white capitalist too. And that's really why the barbarians hate our freedoms.

And so we must have huge, costly, endless wars to "fight" Terrorism.

The continual mind-numbing reinvention of terms, facts and historical realities is almost impossible to keep up with. No one in their right mind would think of "fighting terrorism" with huge armies, tanks, bombs, and napalm. That's like burning down a house to smoke out a termite nest. Insane.

</end rant>

What complete crap this entire war on terror campaign is.

Stirs 'em up real good though.
