Naturally, there’s been a lot of comment today on the horrific terror attack at a premier of “The Dark Knight Rises” in Colorado. So far, the most insightful one I’ve seen said that something is wrong with a society when it is easier to get a cache of guns and ammunition than it is to get mental health services.
Apparently, suspect James Holmes purchased over 6,000 rounds of ammunition over the internet in the past 60 days.
Interesting as well that several journalists made sure that we knew that Holmes, “doesn’t appear to have anything to do with “radical terrorism or anything related to Islamic terrorism.” I guess what he did is just middle-of-the-road terrorism. Was this supposed to be a re-assurance?
Maybe this type of terrorism is in the same category as the bombing in Damascus on Wednesday that killed several top government officials — in other words, acts of terror that are not being defined as such.
I guess it’s also not terrorism for tweeters to post videos of the body of a tortured and murdered head of state and suggest that the president of Syria be murdered and mutilated in the same manner.
Speaking of terrorism, wouldn’t ya know it? One of the groups that is teaming up with the “rebels” over in Syria is none other than Al-Qaeda! I’m pretty sure they are Islamic and also radical. I guess once they were done with all their blood and guts freedom-fighting over in Libya, getting rid of that pesky Qaddafi who wanted the country’s oil money for the population, they just decided to pay al-Assad a visit and teach him a thing or two. After all, they’ve got the biggest boys on the block behind ’em. Boy, for constantly crowing about Islamic terrorism, the U.S. government sure is doing a good job of getting rid of all the secular governments in the Middle East!
I thought Al-Qaeda was the whole reason for this “war on terror” that we’ve been having now for eleven years.
I think I’m pretty confused about Killary and Company’s version of terrorism. And, I wonder what Clinton means when she says that Russia and China will “pay a price” for suggesting that Syria’s problems be handled by Syrians. That sounds pretty scary too. Boy, she says Russia and China will “pay a price,” but there’s ole Al-Qaeda themselves, waving their big black flag all over Libya and Syria and I guess that’s just okay with Killary.
