The Logic of Suicide Terrorism

Enclosed is a fascinating link to an interview with a University of Chicago associate professor who has collected a complete database on every suicide bombing in the world from 1980-2004. His research has produced a very different set of conclusions about the nature of this threat than what Big Media and the gov-mint is currently handing out to the public. It conclusively shows that it is non-Islamic in nature and simply derives from foreign occupation by an invader. The U.S.A. is now experiencing suicide attacks for the first time because their federal government began stationing troops on the Arabian peninsula, then Afghanistan and eventually all of Mesopotamia. Simple as dat! Same goes for the U.K. The research shows that attacks decrease as soon as the invaders go home and mind their own business-----which is why Switzerland has never had a terrorist attack. There is an interesting dialogue about the IRA and why their attacks are down to nothing. They got what they wanted.

This is a vitally important piece of scholarship we can all use to counter the claims made by the U.S. government. We then need to point out that it is specifically their actions alone that are the sole cause of these bombers on our shores.

The exercise of aggresive empire, in fact, is the only thing that can produce a suicide terrorist----read on.

Thanks for that link, Beamis - pretty interesting stuff. I wish I had known about it on Thursday; it would have supported my post too.

What??!! I thought the world was safer now that Bush and Cheney were doing their thing? I'm crushed. My hopes are dashed. I am totally disillusioned now.

Hello Beamis, Monkey's Max suggested that I check out your blog because I complained, as you did, about the sophomoric comments on some of the other blogs, as well as the lack of curiosity about facts that are now coming out about America's involvement in this Iraqi debacle and the disenchantment I feel with America's youth. I just wanted to say thank you to you and Dave for having at least a modicum of intelligence in the way you look at things. I will link into your blog in the future.

I'm glad that there are those out there to hear us. It gets lonelier and lonelier in the militaristic nation of my birth.

Someone asked me "what is the most important thing we can do to change it?" and I replied secession. We in the U.S.A. must push to break up the federal union, like the former U.S.S.R., and rid ourselves of un-Constitutional laws and savage war making. As big and wealthy as places like California or Texas are they would never be big enough to wage a war on another country, most especially one located half-way around the earth.

We in America must rebel and then push our state legislatures through referendum to draft articles of seccession from the United States of America.

When it loses 50 states to take taxes from it will no longer be able to wage foreign wars and kill and maim innocent millions.

Viva la revolution!

I've said for years that the US is too big, but from the viewpoint that we need one man to run domestic policies and another to handle international. Presidents from the time of Johnson have been good at one or the other, but not both at the same time.

The only problem I can see with your suggestion of secession is that the state of TexAss would probably invade all the states around it in order to have more power - since Johnson's time and Vietnam, TexAss-ians have seemed to be the biggest problem that we have with War Mongers in our United States.
