A Better Class of Terrorist

Homicidal religious fanatics aren't intrinsically funny, but even amid the burning wreckage of an ancient religion and a Jeep Cherokee there's room for humor.

Many seem to be shocked at all the doctors and medical professionals associated with the London / Glasgow attacks of June 29 and 30.(I harangue about that in Doctors, Terrorists, and the Proletariat: What's a Person to Think?.)

Others have a more balanced view of the world. As someone from the Britain's Midlands wrote, "[I] think it just goes to show we seem to be getting a better class of terrorist over here at the moment."

Note! Although I believe that these websites and blogs are useful resources for understanding the War on Terror, I do not necessarily agree with their opinions. 1 1 Given a recent misunderstanding of the phrase "useful resources," a clarification: I do not limit my reading to resources which support my views, or even to those which appear to be accurate. Reading opinions contrary to what I believed has been very useful at times: sometimes verifying my previous assumptions, sometimes encouraging me to change them.

Even resources which, in my opinion, are simply inaccurate are sometimes useful: these can give valuable insights into why some people or groups believe what they do.

In short, It is my opinion that some of the resources in this blogroll are neither accurate, nor unbiased. I do, however, believe that they are useful in understanding the War on Terror, the many versions of Islam, terrorism, and related topics.
