The mantrum is terrorism, terrorism, terrorism.
The more its repeated the more fear and distraction it creates
What about state and corporate terrorism that plunders and kills on 
exponentially vaster scale.
What is the cause of these `terrorists' doing what they do.
Is it really religion that is the prime cause or is it a frustrated 
people reacting against the plunder of their own country.
Why are these atrocities never broadcast why do they never cause us 
to cry out in indignation.
Where the outrage over that.
That's never broadcast 24/7 on CNN….Funny that !
This incident is an appalling crime against humanity but what pattern 
of cause and effect has led to it.

By the way a must see film for all concerned in the future of the 
planet is `The Corporation'
