: The terrorists are only reacting to a situation that has been perpetuated by various international, esp. U.S. based, powers.
xxx I'm going to start calling "terrorists" *Iraqi reactionaries.* The true terrorists are those people in the U.S. military who are shooting & otherwise treating badly & humiliating civilians in Iraq FOR NO JUSTIFIABLE REASON AT ALL every second of every day.
xxx However damnable the actions of the bomber today, the U.S. military has been guilty of much, much worse. & it was the job of the U.S. military to protect the U.N. offices... just like it was supposed to protect hospitals & museums.... This "lack of planning" on the part of the U.S. government seems to be making its way back to them.
