Ted Rall talks about beating terror
July 11, 2002
I don't usually like to write about current events, and I like even less to agree with Ted Rall, whom I usually perceive as forming his opinions prior to viewing the facts, but he's absolutely, positively right when he describes how to win the war on terrorism. The only point I'd disagree with is the propensity everyone has for labelling the LAX shootings as terrorism. If losing your shit and shooting 2 people is considered terrorism, then I'd love for all the white guys in this country to start getting profiled, as they've got a long history of freaking out and picking people off at the Post Office or McDonald's.
