The curious thing about idiots is that they never allow their intellectual disabilities to slow them down; always frightfully quick off the mark, they are. Mind you, it does help if you have the script already written beforehand.
As per usual the Guardian is the frontrunner (and I promise that I am not making it up this time):
“Short-sighted politicians in Washington, notably Donald Rumsfeld, the US defence secretary, and his deputy, Paul Wolfowitz, are putting it about that there are links between al-Qaida and Saddam Hussein. They have been trying desperately to come up with evidence to prove it, a task which they have singularly failed to achieve. But in trying they have diverted the resources of their intelligence agencies, including the CIA, and worse, they are trying to manipulate intelligence-gathering for political ends.”
So now the Australians know who to blame; it was Rumsfeld all along! And he would’ve gotten away with it too if hadn’t been for those pesky Guardianistas!
Hot on the heels of the frontrunner, comes the The Subservient:
“But some of the pool of grievances on which al-Qa’ida draws are real injustices – in particular the failure of the US to use its influence to secure a fair settlement between Israelis and Palestinians. These injustices ought to be resolved anyway, but resolving them may well reduce the supply of potential martyrs to murderous causes.”
Freedom for Zionist-occupied..er..Bali.
“The response of world leaders to this weekend’s attack should be to act to ensure that there is more justice in the world, rather than to deepen the sense of injustice that is the breeding ground of terrorists.”
Oh I’d wager that there are quite a lot of people just aching for a bit of justice, my old chum.
You know, in a world of rapidly spiralling uncertainties, there is a perverse comfort in knowing that some things never change.
