I dissent with the OPINION of Mr. Parris
Advertisements [?]
My email to the Editor of The London Times:

" Mathew Parris in his OPINION piece of August 6th 2005 "Suicide bombings will pass they are just a grisly terrorist fashion", ends with this paragraph:

"Now for the difficult part. If terror is to be spearheaded by suicide bombers, and if the suicide bombers real weapon is our horror of his conviction, then the War against Terror must become the war against horror: our own. We must acknowledge, confront and shake off our respect for the suicide bomber. His tactic is pitiful. Scorn and disregard, not shock and awe, are the right response."


Suicide bombers, or those that carry out these vengeful acts, have nothing whatsoever to do with gaining glory or martyrdom. No names are publishd, no eulogies are said. Their names are not prominently displayed in the Orbituray Column of The London Times.......
