On Sept 13, 2001, while the rubble at New york and the Penatgon was still smouldering The Guardian published this travesty by Seamus Milne titled "They can't see why they are hated" and featuring this line:

But any glimmer of recognition of why people might have been driven to carry out such atrocities, sacrificing their own lives in the process - or why the United States is hated with such bitterness, not only in Arab and Muslim countries, but across the developing world - seems almost entirely absent.

See that?

Driven to carry out terrorism. Unable to prevent themselves from flying planes into buildings, the terrorist had been "driven" to it by the US.



Yesterday Phillip Adams in The Australian wrote a piece, not a week after the London bombings, titled "Britain had this coming" featuring this line:

And let's be clear about it: the people who died in the subway tunnels and on the bus were victims of the Iraq war. They died because of Blair's London Bridge, the one he built from the Thames to the Euphrates.

Had he not misled his nation into that murderous folly of an invasion, the people would have walked off the trains instead of being carried off on stretchers. Or had their body parts collected in bags.

See it?


If not for Blair, no bombing. The bombers bombed because they had no choice. It was outta their hands. Every step they took down into the Tube, up on to the steps of the bus, was uninterruptable.

At no point as he walked could the bomber slow his steps and turn back.

He had no chance at all to walk into a lavatory and slow himself up away from people.

There was no time, what with all the walking and the thinking and the seeing other people alive whose lives were going to be ended by him.

No time.

It was out of his hands. Blair was making him do it. Tony Blair, miles away in Scotland, giving aid to Africa. Blair made the bomber step every step. Left him no choice. No time.


You do see how much bullshit that is, right?

At any point surely one of the bombers, if not all four, might have turned back.

They did not.

Not one of them did. Not a second thought.

Seamus and Phil have, despite their preference to blame the victim, in fact identified a universal truth about the perps: they are incapable of self-restraint.

Robots of madness.

I do wish Seamus and Phil would stop covering for them.

It seems the editors of Phil's paper also wish Phil would stop covering for them. Check this editorial.

Natch the Tobe has addressed this too. So does the Chrenk.

This letter writer nails Phat Phil nicely:

ISN'T it nice to know that the sun will come up each day and that Phillip Adams will blame the victim when the terrorists strike (Opinion, 12/7). Who needs al-Qa'ida when we have our very own resident renegade, loathing the society which has given him a very comfortable life indeed.

Gravelly Beach, Tas

Gravelly Beach? Aah, always good to see the Great Australian Naming Rules applied.

Gravelly. I'd rather think about that than think about how seamus and Phil just do not know why they are hated so much.
