Great Analysis: Response To The Boston TragedySubmitted by Ed Thinking on Tue, 05/07/2013 - 11:43
It has been a little over two weeks since the atrocity was committed in Boston by the murderous intent of two young men. University students supposedly on scholarships, family on welfare payments, and all the benefits of receiving, with no moral obligation. How sad it is to see the face of that little eight-year-old boy who had just come to have a fun day with his family only to become a part of the death list and a victim of a cold blooded and calculated act. What parent can ever get over that? What country can afford to not stop and ask “why” until we know the truth?
How does one make judgments on such matters? How do we examine our own beliefs so as to deny such people with violent intent their murderous goals?
I travel an awful lot. I visit countries that do not like Americans. With that prejudice in many a country, I am quizzed as to why I am there. In the Middle East on more than one occasion I have been asked to come and meet the Chief of Intelligence and quizzed. This is the way my last quizzing went in Syria about three years ago:
“We know you are visiting here. We just want to caution you not to get engaged in any political activity or make any comments on politics.”
