What some don't get about terrorism

Any time a terrorist attack occurs, a great many people wring their hands trying to figue out just what is amiss with such barbaric conduct. Be it an IRA, Palestinian or radical Muslim (suicide) attack, there is the usual acknowledgement that terrorism is horrible and the people doing it are over the top, but then the focus turns to whatever is supposed to have provoked it -- usually George W. Bush and his predecessors' foreign policy measures. And some of this, of course, isn't beside the point in making sense of certain of these events. Yet this focus on provocations misses the must basic issue, which is that terrorists lack the most elementary traits of civilization, which is to treat individuals as individuals, as sovereign, self-directed agents who aren't responsible for the misdeeds of their fellow human beings." [editor's note: And precisely how are state actions which kill undifferentiated masses of people -- wars, for example -- any different in principle? - TLK]
