We are about to embark on the greatest act of terror of this century. The world is moving into their pews to witness the greatest fireworks show in history. The straightforward purpose of the impending bombardment of Bagdad is TERROR. To try and mask this overt act of international bullyism and theft as liberation and patriotism is laughable. We are about to demonstrate what terrorism means. I am enraged that our government is doing these things in my name.
The military propagandists would rather call it “shock and awe” rather than terrorism. Would someone please explain the difference to me between ‘shock and awe’ and ‘terror?’
