The truth is that both Stephen Harper and Osama bin Laden are extremist liars, using half-truths and oversimplifications to feed off the grievances of their uncommitted majorities and deceive them into joining their true cause: religious war to the death in the Middle East.

The “pipeline” of suspected terrorists is being fuelled by growing resentment about American and British policy and scandals such as the mistreatment of inmates at the Abu Ghraib prison.
A senior security source, confirming that between 120 and 150 Britons had travelled to Iraq, said there was concern that the flow was increasing: “The really worrying thing is that this has become a movement that people believe in. It’s not simply a matter of them joining a terrorist organisation.” [/url]
Neither really wants to understand and solve the reasons behind those grievances and bring peace to the world or they wouldn’t continue to peddle their shared inanity that willfully ignorant patriotism or religious faith are anything other than the quickest paths to national ruin.
