I can not celebrate death. I instantly remember learning of the sanctions placed on the middle east leading up to the Sept 11 attacks, I remember the witch hunt and fervent anti islamic, Iraqi, Afghan, and middle eastern hatred, I remember that we lost 47,000 Americans, and they, over a million dead citizens and civilian combatants on the other-side, forgive me if I refuse to use the pejorative term “terrorist”, which I feel has become synonymous with fighting without a billion dollars, corporations, and the media behind you.
What is more terrifying, an entire multi-trillion dollar army, or isolated militia’s; one side fueled by tax dollars, the media, and major corporations, the other a rag tag militia, of the people?
