At a time whenrepparttar party held its greatest political power a small minority was calling for a return torepparttar 149854 moderation that they believedrepparttar 149855 party once stood for. Unfortunatelyrepparttar 149856 voices ofrepparttar 149857 reasonable were drowned out by those that claimed thatrepparttar 149858 results ofrepparttar 149859 elections were enough forrepparttar 149860 party to forsake respect forrepparttar 149861 truth.

The Democratic party issuedrepparttar 149862 following statement,

"We offer our condolences to those unsuspecting souls that were blindsided by these events. You are in our thoughts and our prayers and we wish yourepparttar 149863 best.

The Republican party was a fierce political adversary andrepparttar 149864 competitor in all of us will miss their fighting spirit. In years pastrepparttar 149865 Republican party has tried to keep us honest, sometimes more so than we tried to keep ourselves. For this we thank them for their shining example of what becomes of a party that fails to turn that discerning eye inward to introspectively correct faults and remain humble.

The example that has arisen out ofrepparttar 149866 ashes could not be clearer. Whatever organizations come to representrepparttar 149867 disparate groups affected by these events will be better off for it. Homage, no matter how bizarre, must be paid posthumously torepparttar 149868 Republican party for allowing this much needed evolution and for this we again thank them."

Services will be held atrepparttar 149869 Lincoln Memorial at 900 Ohio Drive, S.W. Washington, DC 20024. Memorial donations may be made to Amnesty international, Children's Defense Fund, American Civil Liberties Union,repparttar 149870 Natural Resources Defense Council, Fairness & Accuracy In Reporting, NAACP,repparttar 149871 United Nations, Sierra Club, Human Rights Watch, Greenpeace, Citizens for Tax Justice, andrepparttar 149872 Public Broadcasting Service.

In an article I wrote in 2004 titled, Intelligence Failure andrepparttar Next Armageddon, I had said:

“As you read this, intelligence officers are working at full trot briefing heads of states aboutrepparttar 149853 next move of terrorists and last minute plans to checkmate their move. But no one is askingrepparttar 149854 right questions: Why isrepparttar 149855 world in turmoil? Why do we need intelligence? Why would a virgin decide to bomb herself to death? What would make some people decide to end civilization by a chemical bomb? What can be done to bring lasting peace torepparttar 149856 world?

”It is my belief that if we do not getrepparttar 149857 right answers to these questions,repparttar 149858 world will not have peace. Terrorist attacks have continued unabated—defying intelligence—and will ever continue. (See what’s happening in Spain. NEXT STOP GREAT BRITAIN.)

”All lovers of peace would wish thatrepparttar 149859 world leaders gave attention torepparttar 149860 real causes of terrorism. Otherwise, we might wake up tomorrow and findrepparttar 149861 world on fire onrepparttar 149862 day of ‘Armageddon.’ Do not blamerepparttar 149863 innocent oxymoron, intelligence failure. For we are all to blame.” (Emphasis added.)

In his January 20, 2004 State ofrepparttar 149864 Union address, George Bush said: "We are tracking al-Qaida aroundrepparttar 149865 world and nearly two-thirds of their known leaders have now been captured or killed. Thousands of very skilled and determined military personnel are onrepparttar 149866 manhunt, going afterrepparttar 149867 remaining killers who hide in cities and caves—and, one by one, we will bringrepparttar 149868 terrorists to justice."

I had then written an article withrepparttar 149869 title, The 24 Fallacies of George Bush’s State ofrepparttar 149870 Union Address on Terrorism. In that article, I wrote:

“It is true that most ofrepparttar 149871 key terrorist suspects—including Saddam Hussein—have either been arrested or eliminated. But according to Time Magazine, ‘Lopping offrepparttar 149872 beast's head may not killrepparttar 149873 body.’ If Saddam or Osama bin Laden are hanged today, more Saddams and Osamas will rise tomorrow. Terrorists want attention. And that is why various groups are eager to claim credit for any attack—even though they are not responsible. In like manner there may be a lord ofrepparttar 149874 flies waiting for Saddam and Osama to pass on before taking center stage and bringing his pursuers to ‘justice.'”

I am beginning to think that we do not know who is pursuing whom. Neither do we know whorepparttar 149875 terrorists are. We have also no idea what is justice.

Like Macbeth, “who does murther Sleepe,repparttar 149876 innocent Sleepe,”repparttar 149877 terrorists andrepparttar 149878 world leaders have both murdered sleep, and we can’t sleep anymore. And instead of a merry-go-rounder in a fair ground, we now have an unwelcome visitor that has come to stay, playing unfair games on unannounced grounds. His scary nom de plume? Terror-go-rounder!
