From the Herald Editorial today-
If the assassination of bin Laden is a victory, it is a hollow, Pyrrhic one. If it is a triumph, it is symbolic only. And the world is not a safer place now that he has gone: there is no shortage of successors ready to do his filthy work.
Yep right OK, got that. Waste of time killing terrorists. All those people hung at Nuremberg? That presumably was a total waste of time too. All that trouble to send a message to terrorists that there are consequences to their actions. Self defeating says the spineless little Herald liberal wank.
With most of the Arab world embroiled in a struggle for democracy and freedom against despotic regimes, many of which have enjoyed US sponsorship, the geopolitical landscape has changed. Any exultation should be muted indeed.
Maybe this person, whoever he is who so frequently presumes to lecture us on such matters, could advise one part of the Arab world where “struggles for democracy and freedom” are ensuing. I see some despotic regimes being threatened and attacked by groups that will install similar despotic regimes. I see none fighting for democracy and freedom.
As for muted exultation- how despicable. This dirty little fifth columnist from the Herald would have had us kissing the feet of the Nazis at the end of world War Two. How can our civilisation withstand the threats it faces today when we are being constantly white anted by our mainstream media?
