Barbarians

Back in the days when I was blogging for HiWired I tried to show a bit of restraint when talking about the acts of some people.

However one of the great advantages of a personal blog is the lack of said necessity, so lets say some things bluntly:

The people involved in the attacks in India are barbarians.

Those in Islam who support and finance such attacks are barbarians.

Those who excuse such attacks as justified are idiots and/or supporters of barbarians.

Those who try to equate our troops to the killers in India and those terrorists who target civilians in Iraq are either complete dupes of barbarians at best or at worst allies of murders are barbarians.

If someone tries to make such a comparison to you as a reasonable argument or attempts to justify and defend the attackers but will happily condemn President Bush as the greatest murderer since Hitler then; they are not serious people (although they will think themselves so), ignorant about history (though they will think themselves not) and disinterested in the lives of others (although they will say otherwise) and their opinions should be either ignored or Nelsoned like so:

This will likely enrage them more then any bloodshed.

If your value system justifies such attacks and actions then you need a new value system.

If your culture justifies such attacks then it is inferior and you need a new one too.

You have a perfect right to any of the above beliefs if you want to hold them, it doesn’t make you any less of an idiot.

If you don’t like my characterization of any of these things then let me paraphrase Truman and say, “Stop supporting barbarians and murders and I will stop characterizing your beliefs like that”.
