So i read this thread on a day when Islamist terrorists have blown up 4 trains in Bombay, killing perhaps 200 people and maiming many more.  This after similar atrocities in London, Madrid, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Bali, Kenya, Tanzania etc etc.  My patience with conspiracy theories seeking to blame it all on George Bush rather than the terrorists who delight in murdering so many ordinary people just going about their day until they're blown to smithereens is wearing extremely thin.


Spot on Nick. I would go so far as to say that blaming people other than Islamic Fundies for this attack and religion and esp. religious fundamentalism as the root of these and so many other problems worldwide is to be willingly ignorant to the point of immorality and cowardice.

This is not to deny that the actions of GWB among others may inspire terrorists but only to point the finger in the right direction so we can be clear on what problem needs to be solved. Corrupt evil govenrments committing mass murder would be a serious problem, and it is in some places. But not here. The problem here is intollerance and fundamentalism.

The fact that so many conspiracy nuts are about is a sign of the times. We live in a land of plenty and a land of dreamers... we are setting ourselves up the bomb, move all zig!

Thanks for asking RealityRainCheck.   I was wondering the same thing.

AH!  it's the 'disable HTML in this post' button that needs to be checked in order for the quote to work.
