The “War on Terror” Goes On

July 7, 2005

Amidst my sorrow for those dead and injured in the London bombings, I cannot accept Bush’s quote on the matter. From the G-8 meeting in Gleneagles:

“On the one hand, you have people working to alleviate poverty and rid the world of the pandemic of AIDS and ways to have clean a environment, and on the other hand, you have people working to kill other people,” the president said. “The contrast couldn’t be clearer between the intentions and the hearts of those of us who care deeply about human rights and human liberty, and those who kill, those who’ve got such evil in their hearts that they will take the lives of innocent folks. The war on terror goes on.”

Ok, Mr. Tax Cut for the Wealthy Conservative Christian No Condoms Environmental Nightmare Oil Baron Warmonger. We cannot accept your shameless use of this event to posture as the good guy. Shameless.

    He would continue later on to say: “We will find them. We will bring them to justice. And at the same time we will spread an ideology of hope and compassion that will overwhelm their ideology of hate.”

    What is this “ideology of hate?” At the risk of sounding like one who wants therapy and understanding for the attackers, I ask: isn’t it time to move beyond the painfully simplistic characterization that they hate our freedom?
