POV | Some Terrorists Wear Suits and Ties (7/22/14)
Not all terrorists wear robes and masks or blow themselves up in crowds. Sometimes, the ones who do the most damage are camouflaged in expensive suits and ties
Not all terrorists wear masks or blow themselves up in crowds. Sometimes terrorists wear expensive suits and ties. They can meet with civilized people and tell them what they want to hear and then do exactly the opposite. They can order the disruption of a neighboring country. They can send troops in with no insignias on their uniforms, stupidly thinking that gives them plausible deniability to take control of land they covet. They can recruit local thugs and call them insurgents. They can provide weapons, training and missiles.
The terrorist in a suit can either order his puppets to shoot down defenseless civilian airliners and slaughter hundreds of innocent people, or he can simply make all the conditions possible for such an act of terror. Either way, he is simply a terrorist.
Vladimir Putin is such a man – one who is perhaps the most dangerous terrorist in the world right now.
His surrogates have finally given the international inspection team access to the now-contaminated and compromised site of last week’s airliner crash in Ukraine and allowed the bodies to be removed. But this hardly washes the blood of so many innocents from his hands.
British Prime Minister David Cameron said, "If President Putin does not change his approach to Ukraine, then Europe and the West must fundamentally change our approach to Russia."
And I agree.
I’m Bill Lamb, and that’s my Point of View.
