Thanks GDB for posting that. I look to Friedman to put things into perspective.

Great stuff, he's a asset to have during these turbulent times.

I think this paragraph speaks volumes..

"The nub of this argument is that there are root causes of terrorism - but that they lie, primarily, in the humiliation felt by the populations of Arab states whose governments have failed to provide them with the freedoms, prosperity and opportunities of the west. September 11, from this perspective, was an expression of envy, resentment and failure - part of a "terrorism bubble... built on the assumption that said, flying planes into the World Trade Centre? That's OK? And not only is it OK, it's going to be effective. What we needed to do, frankly, was burst that bubble." Why, he asks rhetorically, "were all the key hijackers people who'd converted to radical Islam in Europe? Maybe it's because it was here that they encountered the humiliation most prominently."
