Backstage Manager(inactive) BS: Is Canada getting a Free Ride? (113* d) RE: BS: Is Canada getting a Free Ride? 13 Mar 04

Canada is not a target of terrorism because it is not a country that tries to bully other countries politically or economically.

Canada is also a country that, not too many decades ago, stood up to its own domestic terrorists, the FLQ, a group whose arguments were not that different from the ETA in Spain.

As a western democracy, it is not clear that Canada can count on continuing to be free of the type of terrorist attacks suffered by the USA on 9/11, or by Spain this week.

Terrorists are terrorists because they do not have the big guns to fight their oppressors in an all out war. Where did you get the idea that, Terrorists do not like countries that are free??? Seems to me that its an act of self defense and an act of independence.

That is utter nonsense. Terrorism has nothing to do with self defense and independence. One of the goals of terrorists is to break down freedom. Restrictions of freedom and civil liberties are almost a by-product of terrorism. Terrorists, by and large, are also well aware that their actions are going to bring repression and reaction on to the very people that they claim to be representing. By and large, they don't give a shit about people or about life itself.
