Terrorists Everywhere

Oh boy these terrorists, all the time wanting to bomb something in somebody else's countries.' Mostly they seem to hang in the Middle East but the do seem to be around in some other places, like the US. CNN reports:

Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo’s campaign stood by his assertion that bombing holy Muslim sites would serve as a good “deterrent” to prevent Islamic fundamentalists from attacking the United States, his spokeswoman said Friday.
“This shows that we mean business,” said Bay Buchanan, a senior Tancredo adviser. “There’s no more effective deterrent than that. But he is open-minded and willing to embrace other options. This is just a means to deter them from attacking us.”

Do you suppose he knows Saudi Arabia has Mecca in its borders? Let's see, when Ossama wants to knock down things in the US because Israel is our ally he's a terrorist, when Tom wants to do it in Saudi Arabia because some terrorists claim to be Muslims he's a responsible US Representative and Presidential Candidate? Look here, virtually nobody - including me - claimed warmongering when Afghanistan got whacked for sheltering and supporting Ossama, I complained that it would be done "on the cheap," not completely doing the job. That seems to be the case with BushCo, doesn't it? Half-way measures done half-assed.

War is terror. Deliberate targeting of citizenry is supposed to be discouraged. Collateral damage is supposed to be discouraged. But blowing things up and shooting in populated areas is terror, whoever is doing it. A car bomb and a smart bomb off an F15 both blow things up and that tends to be bad for women and children and other growing things. But for pete's sake, whacking things in a non-combatant state is plainly terrorism. I'm thinking BushCo got some laws passed about that. Don't expect to see Tom in jail - he's the wrong color and Party for that.
