September 11 2003

So, it’s the second anniversary since the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington. A lot has happened in two years. The US, with the support of a few other countries, has invaded two other countries; hightened states of security have existed almost everywhere in the western world; Bush and his cronies have talked about the War on Terrorism. And yet Osama Bin Laden remains alive and well; Saddam Hussain remain at large; Jemmah Islamiah continues to grow in numbers on our doorstep, and killed a few hundred tourists in Bali; more US troops have died in Iraq since the end of the war than during the war as the citizens resist the invasion.

Haven’t heard much from the IRA though…

The War on Terrorism is a war against ghosts. There is no enemy but that which is created by the west, like 1984′s Goldstien. Bush’s motto may well be “WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, and, IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.”
