Thread Name: BS: Fire Ward Churchill
Subject: RE: BS: Fire Ward Churchill
this furor is a result of one poorly chosen phrase with the word Eichmanns in it.
Churchhill was not saying that all those peole deserved to die, or that mass murder was justified. All he really said was that none of them should be SURPRISED that various folks were angry and picked them as targets.

I don't think I agree with Churchill that it is quite that clear, but he was explicating global political reality...whether you agree with his analysis or not. He wasn't even that original, as everyone knew from the earlier bombing attempt at the WTC that certain elements wanted to strike at the USAs financial interests. Churchill was chiding them for being so dense about the feelings their policies and attitudes engendered.

If I were in Churchill's classes, I'd probably argue with him a LOT...but he is certainly qualifed to TEACH those classes!
