THIS ISN'T ABOUT THE BOMBINGS IN LONDON. But it might as well be.
When our whole approach to fighting "terror" is to inflict pain on people until they behave they way we want, what do we do when they can take all the pain we have to give? How much more pain are we willing – or able – to inflict until we realize the pointlessness of it all? Or until conscience confronts us?
Condolences to the victims of mass violence, whether they be the people of London or the people of Iraq. A pox on all their leaders.
