GeorgeH The price of freedom ?? (58* d) RE: The price of freedom ?? 13 Sep 01


McGrath touched on this . . But still no one has answered his point.

Can someone PLEASE explain what on earth this ghastly attack has to do with freedom? As far as I can see the "attack on freedom" claims are ENTIRELY bogus - good rabble-rousing rhetoric, but totally without merit.

Sadly, I am sure the US will "respond" to this attack, with a further round of violence. In doing so she will increase the hatred with which the US is viewed in so much of the world, and so will increase the chances of further attacks against the civilian population of the US. You may not like what I'm saying here, but that doesn't change its truth.

And as for the suggestion that such an attack could only be mounted by people of middle-eastern origin - you mean, in the way the Chicago bombing was perpetrated by an Arab . . .

Whatever the view of the good citizens of the US, one man's act of terrorism is another man's legitimate struggle for freedom and justice. Until you have the humanity to accept that fact you stand no chance of reducing the prospects of future incidents of this nature.
