Give John Howard a Logic gold star

John Howard effortlessly shot down the notion that any terrorist attacks are caused by participation in Iraq. He basically pointed out attacks that happened before the invasion of Iraq actually began: Sept. 11 and the Bali bombing where 88 Australians were killed.

Several other attacks could be mentioned: Achille Laurel, Beirut, World Trade Center 1993, the USS Cole.

While current terrorist attacks may be accompanied by rhetoric about Iraq, history shows they would still be happening even if we never invaded Iraq. Terrorists simply use Iraq as the excuse du jour to do what they would be doing anyway: killing as many innocent people as possible out of hatred and intolerance.

Good job Mr. Howard with a good dose of logic.

    The fact is, we don't know. You could make equally plausible arguments either way. It's rhetoric, not logic - do you understand the difference?

    Anyone who is interested in finding excuses for terrorist attacks or trying to understand them is not using logic or rhetoric, they are simply appeasing.
