GeorgeH The price of freedom ?? (58* d) RE: The price of freedom ?? 12 Sep 01


Yesterday was, without doubt, unspeakably dreadful. One's heat goes out to all those affected, directly or indirectly, by it. But to attribute it as the price of freedom is pure nonsense.

Just as Britain can/could not hope to solve the "problem" of IRA "terrorism" without addressing the legitimate grievances of the Catholic people of (Northern) Ireland, so the US will never be free of attack by such "political terrorists" until she addresses the legitimate grievances of the millions of people around the world who feel something close to hatred for the USA. At times, and with some of those people, that hatred is so strong as to blind them to the suffering which has just been afflicted on so many of America's people. This is another layer of the human tragedy we see unfolding . . and is non too surprising, given the ease with which so many of American's citizens close their eyes to the human suffering cased, directly or indirectly, by the supposedly Christian government of the USA.

I realise the view expressed here is likely to be unpopular, and I am sorry that it will cause offence, but in my opinion it presents a truth which needs to be spoken.

My thoughts and prayers remain with all those suffering through these events.

George
