In my day, there were (for the most part) guidelines for your behaviour as a terrorist. This would encompass a phone call to the authorites for example to warn of a bomb that that had been placed, or in the case of a plane highjacking, the tense negotiations followed by the killing or capture of the terrorists, hoorah!
Along with the decline in moral standards visible across the western world, the eastern world has entered the fray fuelled know doubt by MTV Baghdad and Macdonalds Kabul burger specials into the soundbite terrorism we see today. The only graceful and elegant thing about all this it seems is that terrorists are increasingly exploding themselves during the act of terrorism itself.
But even that, doesn't it feel like a bit of an anti climax. I mean, there's no joy of hunt in going out and finding these people or eliminating them in some sort of dawn raid after a stake out. They're even taking the drama and newsworthiness out of the aftermath, bounders and cads the lot of them.
And so, to a new reality tv series.."I'm a terrorist, meet my conditions or else!", this show will centre on brining aspiring terrorists into the spotlight, given them time to ari their views and allowing us, the victims to decide on the best and most effective terrorism to be inflicted on us in the coming years.
After all, these people need a hand, here are just two reasons that constantly come up in conversation with other non-terrorist acquaintances who bemoan the lack of skilland foresight of the recent "New Terrorism" age.
- Blowing up a plane with liquid explosives is just plain stupid. Walk on to the New Work subway with some mad bacterial agent and you could kill thousands more and case more disruption!
- Why fly your plane into a building, fly it into the nuclear power plant 5 mins away, destroy the whole city, kill more people, cause more distruption!
No class, tch
