The Age cartoonists are mentally ill

(via Slattsnews) - yesterday's Sunday Age had this dreadful piece of garbage from Age cartoonist Matt Golding, who believes that the 2003 invasion of Iraq gave birth to Al-Qaeda and Jemmah Islamiyah.

I expect this cartoon would have been under their "Insight" section.

Those 1993 bombings of the World Trade Centre, and attacks throughout Africa and the Middle East by Al Qaeda were done in response to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Its as if all leftists, especially those working for Fairfax newspapers, believe terrorism didn't exist until the point in time where Western governments started responding to being attacked (basically 9/11 for most of us, but since the 1972 Munich Olympics for the Israelis).

And their line of reasoning goes as follows - if responding to the initial acts of terrorism causes further terrorism ( even the initial acts of terrorism were caused by the response !!), then we shouldn't respond to terrorism to end further terrorism.

Is your brain bleeding yet ? This is like Orwell's 1984 - war is peace, freedom is slavery. Keep repeating the doublespeak through your mind and you too may be enlightened enough to draw cartoons for The Age.
