Terrorism & Terrorists

The point of terrorism is just that - terror. As a means to any sort of end, the exploded bomb has already accomplished the point.

Beyond that, these thugs are unable to move beyond ejaculating all over themselves to produce another or die doing it. There is an infinite number of ways to perpetrate some kind of terrorist act, and the very act of trying to prevent one kind of terrorist act only begets something you were not prepared for at all. These buggers are as creative as they are malicious.

Even incarcerated, terrorists work to emotionally threaten by any means necessary. It is readily apparent they respect no one, not even their own lives. Perhaps the best end to a terrorist is a dead end, but the question then turns: Does the killing of people to prove that killing people is wrong lead only to more killing of people?

Indeed, we control our own response to such acts and standing together with great purpose and resolve is the best reply. The people of England and, more specifically, London rise together in the face of great tragedy and serve as roll models to all. Those things that do not kill us make us stronger. Those things that kill people we know, hurt & hurt hard, but strengthen our resolve to put those who would perpetrate terrorism asunder.

Anyway, I thought folks in the blogisphere might like to see a different perspective on the detainees at Guantanamo, possibliy giving us a look at the mentality of these so called terrorists:
Last week, I was privileged to be part of a Department of Defense trip to the Joint Task Force - Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. I got to see the operations of this “controversial” facility up-close – something particularly important after Sen. Richard Durbin’s comparison of its guard to Nazi stormtroopers and calls of leftists to shut the center down. Our group went to GITMO to check out tales that the military was being too tough on these terrorist detainees. We left convinced that America is being extraordinarily lenient – far too lenient. After speaking with soldiers, sailors, and civilians who collectively staff Gitmo, I left convinced that abuse definitely exists at the detention facilities, and it typically fails to receive the press attention it deserves: it’s the relentless, merciless attacks on American servicemen and women by these terrorist thugs. Many of the orange jumpsuit-clad detainees fight their captors at every opportunity, openly bragging of their desire to kill Americans. One has promised that, if released, he would find MPs in their homes through the internet, break into their houses at night, and “cut the throats of them and their families like sheep.” Others claim authority and vindication to kill women, children, and other innocents who oppose their jihadist mission authorized by the Koran (the same one that hangs in every cell from a specially-designed holder intended to protect it from a touching the cell floor – all provided at U.S. taxpayer expense). One detainee was heard to tell another: “One day I will enjoy sucking American blood, although their blood is bitter, undrinkable….” These recalcitrant detainees are known euphemistically as being “non-compliant.” They attack guards whenever the soldiers enter their cells, trying to reach up under protective facemasks to gouge eyes and tear mouths. They make weapons and try to stab the guards or grab and break limbs as the guards pass them food.

Looks like Tony Blair and I will agree on at least this - from the NYTIimes today:

"The purpose of terrorism is just that - to terrorize people and we will not be terrorized."
