Managing Terrorism

...The latest addition to the American Management Association Seminar: Managing Terrorism (Beheadings - Strategies for Living). Join us in this two-day seminar exploring all avenues of appeasement, new ways to get a head, and avoiding the explosion of terrorists...

Last week, Oliver Stone proved that his brain remains at large. Maybe he equated the praise he received from his recent movie, "World Trade Center" with a PhD in Terrorism Management. At the San Sebastian International Film Festival in Spain, he said "Terrorism is a manageable action. It can be lived with."

Let's see here, the last time I checked each incident of terrorism has exacted its toll in a loss of life. WTC, Oklahoma City, USS Cole, Khobar Towers. Please Mr. Stone, tell me how terrorism can be "lived with" when the ultimate goal of the terrorist is to inflict the highest casualty count possible?

Perhaps Mr. Stone believes we should appease the terrorists. Maybe we should submit to their indomitable will and high spirit, or better yet, convert to their way of thinking. Surely we should not raise their ire by defending ourselves, our values, and our way of life.

Should we manage by caving in? By placating? By being pacifists? How do you manage the irrational and illogical? Mr. Stone should know; he works with Hollywood actors. Apparently he thinks the terrorists are angling for a feature film. Maybe he can direct/write "Born on the Fatwa of July" or "Natural Born Terrorists".

Yes, let's manage and live with terrorism. After all, what are a few beheadings in Mr. Stone's grandiose machinations.

You've got some choice turns of phrase in here. Me like, me like! :)

On a more serious note, Stone's arrogance is typical of the Hollyweird left, who seems to be unable to tell apart real life from their convenient fictions. They think anything can be managed just because they can make a movie depicting it; if the movie is managed, why then, so is real life! That also explains why liberals present these assinine and sugary axioms as truth when they run governments, and because these fail, then tyranny comes up quick on the left to "make it work".
