Luke alerted me to an extremely relevant Suck.com article called Them Against Fire written by Chris Bray after last year’s bombing of the U.S.S. Cole. Here’s a snippet:

“If you’re looking for the clear act of cowardice around the bombing of the Cole, then, look to the effort to describe it to the countrymen of the murdered sailors. To suggest that an organized attack, brought off skillfully by members of what must be an extraordinarily cohesive organization, represents nothing more than some simpering spasm of pathetic hatred is to carefully miss the very large, very unpleasant point: People who destroy human life in this precise manner are not alone, and not disorganized, and very much not finished.”

Do yourself a favor and read the rest of it.
