"We face an enemy that has an ideology. They beleive things. The best way to describe their ideology is to relate to you the fact that they think the opposite of the way we think."

Really, that says it all about our national nightmare, doesn't it? The inexplicably simplistic rendering of a enemy and why they "hate" us, the assumption that everyone believes the same things he does, and an easy way to connect "the terrorists" with domestic opponents. Breathtaking.

The enemy think gravity makes things go up?

"The best way to describe their ideology is to relate to you", or "the best way to relate their ideology to you"?

i wonder.

Somebody in the blogosphere said that Bush probably talks like that because that's how his advisers explain situations to him - famously he ignores written briefs in favour of verbal ones. I think it's very likely to be true.

They hate us for our freedom, don't they?

Well, I'm gonna start hating them for their captivity. That'll show 'em.

On a tangent, I had a meeting this week with three Europe based but American senior 'risk researchers' from a major global finance/insurance company, which does a lot of business in Turkey.
I was quite staggered by their complete lack of knowledge on fairly basic points.
One expressed surprise that the bombings earlier this week might impact the economy because 'no one comes here except German backpackers'. Another opined that there was no way Turkey would get into the EU because non-one he'd spoken to in the states (he'd only just moved to yurp) thought it was a good idea.
None were aware of EU energy policy, the role that allocates Turkey or the connection between this and Turkey's status as a candidate country.
They had managed to find the best of the city's 5* hotels mind, so they weren't completely useless.

I got a nice warm feeling when I glanced upon this headline this morning.

But then I realised it wasn't what it seemed.

Spock, come on, who could take a country that's named after one of our holiday foods seriously? Just be thankful they're willing to share their expertise with your poor little German tourist enclave.

The White House has refused to comment, saying last night: "We won't dignify this with a response."


But John Beyer of TV watchdog MediaWatch said the drama was irresponsible and could even spark a real-life assassination attempt.


He added: "There's a lot of feeling against President Bush and this may well put ideas into people's heads."


And Mr Beyer issued a stark warning to Channel 4 bosses, saying: "If something happens as a consequence of this film, then blood is on their hands.



woo hoo, no further comment necessary.

They were't though FF, they were over here 'assessing risk'. But then I guess if their shareholders are as dumb as they are it won't matter.

Funny, I was saying the same thing before the Iraq war, when the news media was unquestioningly repeating Bush claims about Iraqi WMD which had already been proven to be false.

I love the idea of someone watching this and suddenly deciding to assassinate the President of the United States, a thought which had not occurred to them before.
