Reacting to Osama bin Laden’s Death: A former counter-terrorism marine reflects on America’s troubling catharsis. 9 May 2011, TheTyee.ca
Journalist Chris Cannon writes: about the celebration of bin Laden’s death outside the White House, “…Let’s by all means grieve together. But let’s not be stupid together... Osama bin Laden’s death is an opportunity for the West. Is America mature enough to take advantage?…[Among] Bin Laden’s greatest allies [was] a hawkish Republican administration that capitalized on the opportunity to terrorize its own citizens, and a cowering American media that let them get away with it…”
this blogger writes: ❛ I’ve been believing all along that America really is going down that long dark road to Gehenna, and likely taking the rest of the us with her…that something dark has been happening down Dixie way, some beast ever slouching toward D.C.
I had totally GIVEN UP on all Americans.
Chris Cannon’s Op-Ed piece on the Tyee changes things incrementally for me.
Let’s bring on more like you! Good on you, man!❜
