This is George Bush’s accountability moment. That’s why I’m here. The mainstream media aren’t holding him accountable. Neither is Congress. So I’m not leaving Crawford until he’s held accountable. - Cindy Sheehan

There are things worth fighting for. And there are even some worth dying for. But Iraq is not one of them. - James Moore

But, Condi says we should stop making excuses for terrorists...



....no one forces them to set off bombs, she says....

Linda McQuaig makes much more sense in her article, Terror Attacks are Response to Military Actions in this Common Dreams article, at:
http://www.commondreams.org/views05/0731-25.htm

Robert Pape, a political scientist at the University of Chicago and director of the Chicago Project on Suicide Terrorism, has put together a comprehensive data bank of every suicide terrorist attack (315) in the world since 1980.

"(W)hat nearly all suicide terrorist attacks have in common," notes Pape in his book, Dying to Win, "is a specific secular and strategic goal: to compel modern democracies to withdraw military forces from territory that the terrorists consider to be their homeland." Pape also observes that once a military occupation ends, the suicide terrorism tends to stop.

If anyone is making excuses it's that bitch Condi and her boss the chimp. They're the ones making the excuses why the terrorists are still blowin' up shit.

The terrorists don't need any excuses, they've got plenty of reasons.

Well put, reasons, not excuses.

If they have reasons, and not excuses, then we have reasons to make up excuses as their reasons for blowing stuff up.
