#1 The newspaper cut out all the incredibly moving rhetoric:
Terrorism, like its tyrannical forebears, is borne of the idea that with enough guns, enough fear, and enough violence, human power can control the human spirit.

That through brute force, powerful men can erase the imprint of the Almighty etched into the souls of all His children.

That through domination of the weak, in the words of the serpent, "Ye shall be as gods."

Ladies and gentlemen, IT IS A LIE.

It was a lie at Auschwitz. It was a lie in the Gulag.

It was a lie behind the Iron Curtain. It was a lie in Kabul and Baghdad. And today, it remains a lie in Beijing, and Havana, and Tehran, and Pyongyang, and Damascus and Ramallah!

But history has taught us, The Lie's grip on civilization is only as tight as civilization permits.

After September 11, 2001, OUR tolerance for The Lie is no more.

#2 I know alot of people who are willing to except the lie. As long as it doesn't effect them.

#3 Too true. Historically, Americans have to be backed into a corner and have their jaw knocked askew before they'll take up a challenge to their existence. One can hope that's really changing - Dubya is certainly trying to effect that change. Lethality makes the stakes far too high to wait, as before.

#4 I think the problem with the Isrealis and the Palestinians can be summed up in one word: ARAFAT.

That little pig was an early leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLF)which trained the IRA, the Red Army Faction, Black September and other nutcases and fringe wackos too numerous to mention.

As long as there are hostilities between the Isrealis and the Palestinians, Arafat has a nice fat life with a zillion dollars in the bank and legions of left leaning, anti-semite European leaders kissing his butt. Once there is peace, someone and not necessariliy an Isreali will KILL him.

Terrorism has become a business. As long as there are problems in Isreal, these psychopaths can get large sums of money from naive people to fund their crimes. A lot of that money goes for fancy cars, fancy homes, drugs, girls, fine food, etc....If there is peace in the middle east, these clowns are out of business. So they self perpetuate themselves with other people's children and other people's money to guarantee themselves status and a cush existence.

#5 Sure sounds like Delay is running for something - might he envision taking Dick Cheney's place on the 2004 ticket? Wouldn't be a bad idea...
