Rosa Brooks is an idiot – Get used to it!

December 5, 2008

The mental giant wrote this about the war on terror:

Last week’s terrorist attacks involved a handful of men armed only with guns, grenades and homemade bombs. But they killed more than 170 people, closed universities and businesses, shut down India’s National Stock Exchange and did incalculable economic damage to a country that boasts the world’s third-largest military and internationally respected police and intelligence services — none of which managed to prevent the attacks. Sound familiar? It should.

It should remind you of 9/11, when 19 men armed only with box cutters ultimately killed nearly 3,000 people. And the 2004 Madrid train bombings, which killed 191, and the 2005 bombings on London’s Underground, which killed 52. Each of these attacks involved a small number of perpetrators. Each was low-tech. Each caused enormous psychological and economic damage in addition to loss of life, and each occurred in countries with sophisticated security forces.

Get used to it.

Did you hear that folks?! Just get used to terrorism! There ain’t a dang thing we can do about it. It’s useless. People are just evil. They’re going to set off bombs. They’re going to shoot people up. Just let it happen. No sense in trying to do anything about it.

I’m so glad she’s got it all figured out for us.

    The problem with people like this is that there are so many of them. And people like Rosa Brooks get published by the LA Times.
