In fairness to the 9/11 bombers (and the 7/7 bombers) they thought that what they were doing was religiously motivated. Of course you can ignore their views and explain their actions in terms of some other goal, attributing to them some kind of false consciousness, but that only shows an essential intolerance - or perhaps indifference - to the dafter ideals of Al Qaida and its supporters. ___________________________________ http://mailman.lbo-talk.org/mailman/listinfo/lbo-talk
