So this morning as I was getting ready for work, I flipped away from my usual "Sports Desk" on NESN and somehow landed on CNN. I was watching a telecast of the recently arrested terrorists who were planning attacks at either Frankfurt airport or Ramstein AB in Germany. According to the reports, these were "no joke" terrorists who were found planning a large scale attack with a hefty amount of explosives and detonating devices. I for one, am so very thankful that other countries are diligent in their efforts to thwart terrorist attacks. I often wonder how we managed to be unscathed as we had, for so long…
In any event, the thing that really irked me while watching this, was that in big yellow letters was this caption:
Why not Germany?
For those of you who haven't quite woken up to the concept of terrorism, (which clearly those at CNN haven't figured this out yet) - here's a little " Fundamentalist Psych 101" for you: terrorists hate everyone. Sure, they use the USA as their best form of propoganada because we're easy tartgets! I mean, yes we stand for mostly everything that they disagree with - however, they know that everyone will jump on the "Big Bad Bully USA" bandwagon. And that makes it easier for them to be able to attack other people in other countries - because then their guards are down. "They don't hate us - it's the Americans they hate". Wrong my friends.
Sure, you can all think it's the "American targets" in these countries that they're after; think again. There is no fallout without casualties - and casualties in other countries aren't all American. Ding, ding, ding! This is an equal opportunity hate. They hate the British, the German, the French, the Africans -- they hate their own fellow religion members who don't go along with their thought processes. They're fundamental fanatics - and yes, they hate you.
