Ted Rall for June 14, 2001
We kill people who kill people, but not all of them. Terrorism is always arbitrary. (Man: Too bad you killed a cop... if you'd killed a heterosexual white convenience store worker I could've gotten you life.) We kill people in order to get even. Terrorism is always about vengeance. (Woman: Don't worry, sweetie- eventually the state will poison the person who killed you.) We kill innocent people sometimes terrorism always results in collateral damage. We hire people to do our killing for us. Terrorists are all cowards.
