Fear fear fear!

You must have fear people. Reading the American news the last couple days you might be fearful of an apparent imminent threat, another “September 11th” in the works. But upon further investigation when reading the small print on CNN, you will notice that the individuals who were planning an attack on a UK airliner have ...

Israeli attack carefully planned?

The US recently expedited a shipment of precision bombs to Israel as a result of the attacks on Lebanon. The shipment is a result of a multi-million dollar deal that the US made with Israel last year where Israel can “draw on as needed”. In an attempt to show that the US doesn’t favour Israel ...

Inconsiderate ignorance

I have been reading through CNN anchor Anderson Cooper’s blog, and he asked his viewers to share their comments. I couldn’t believe the inconsiderate ignorance of most Americans who responded to his article. In general, most of the respondants seem to think that Israel is “doing the right thing” and all terrorists in the world ...

Bombay train bombing

Trains and public transportation systems have been an easy target in recent years. Today a cowardly act on Bombay (Mumbai) India’s train system killed close to 200 innocent civilians. The bombings on the London subway system a year ago killed 52 people and the bombing in Madrid, Spain on March 11, 2004 killed 192 people. ...

Terrorists in the Media

When I was in the United States last weekend, someone we had met had mentioned that she was in Toronto when “Canada’s 9/11″ was supposed to happen. I was a little bit awe struck when I realized that this person was referring to the arrests of the 17 terrorist wanna-be’s the other week in Toronto. ...

Canadians are bad terrorists

As everyone already knows, police have arrested 17 people in an anti-terror sweep in the Greater Toronto Area. This story has headlined in major news agencies all over the globe. Spy and police agencies have been monitoring this alleged terror cell since the fall of 2004, and they finally made the arrest after the RCMP ...

US hits another low 3

Racism in the US has hit an all time low with the recent uproar by the media and senators on Capitol Hill. A United Arab Emirates company (Dubai Ports World) is set to purchase a British firm which manages some of the major ports in the U.S. Normally, a business transaction as such would appear ...

US bans torture

It would appear the US is attempting to repair their image to the world. Admitting that your country has tortured prisoners without actually admitting it. This is clever politics. Tax dollars could be wasted on investigations into alleged torture on prisoners, or you could just ban torture completely without actually having to admit the tortures ...

Understanding the terrorists

Having the ability to defeat the terrorists requires a solid understanding about why terrorists are doing what they’re doing. Modern history can explain a lot about the terrorist mindset and you can even understand the reasons for their hate and resentment toward others. Often times the “blow them out of the water” mentality only worsens ...

An American Attitude

I came across a blog entry this evening that caught my attention. Basically this guy is ranting about terrorists and the awful things they have done. He says “I hate the fact that civilians are being killed. But they were warned, and told to leave.” He also suggested that the solution to the problem is ...
