For a New, Progressive, War on Terror
Author Don Lutz has written that terror is “what one feels when being kidnapped or raped.”
He goes on to list other terrifying examples:
“Terror is what poor people worldwide feel when approached by uniformed, armed men; what animals feel in research laboratories; what people feel when their families are faced with starvation; what a child feels when an adult starts to hit; what millions of families feel when they hear planes overhead; what fish feel when hooked in the mouth; what people feel under threat of having loved ones tortured or killed; what forest dwellers feel when the loggers come in to clear-cut; what people feel when they are threatened with invasion; and what animals feel at slaughterhouses.”
If you want to wage war against terror, why not look for the real enemy?
