Who needs suicide bombers when you have Hollywood?

May 21, 2006 5:00 PM

These idiots are spending a million bucks to shoot a 60 second ad using "The Matrix" still array effect to show a suicide bomber in action. Supposedly, they think if the suicide bombers see this, they won't do it.

Someone needs to clue them in that the ENTIRE FUCKING POINT of terrorism is to sear this very same image into everyone's head.

Don't do their work for them.

Unless, of course, these anonymous funders are actually terrorists who just saw Wag the Dog. If they are, we're in deep shit, cause they just figured out how to scale their operation.

Right Wing Robby:

The entire point of terrorism is to frighten people into submission. Its to cause the public to want out of a situation.

The liberals fit that role perfectly. They have given aid to the enemy by portraying America in the worst light as often as possible. Liberals are exactly what terrorists want.

There was a north vietnamese general who said they would have never "won" the war if not for the help of the liberals.

In the battle of ideas, liberals fall with the enemy.

Tom from Madison:


Jihad is what Islamic Terrorists want. That's what George W Bush is giving them on 2 fronts. It sounds like he'd like to give it to them in Iran as well. Having a war in an innocent country's back yard gives aid and comfort to Islamic Jihadists. It's also kills innocent people, gives Democracy a bad name and creates mis-trust among former US allies.

Bush's policies are lame, unsustainable attempts to establish economic domination through military intimidation. Military intervention, occupation, and establishment of a puppet government are no substitute for real self-rule--you can't bomb your way to democracy. Insurgency will always be the result of this kind of self-defeating policy.

Peace through strength is what Liberals, Progressives, and enlightened moderates and conservatives want. This can be achieved only by proving that the US has higher motives than wealth extraction and economic domination. Until that happens, terrorism will always have some appeal.
