A Few Questions

What is inherently wrong with this next sentence I found at this major mainstream media outlet?

Two civilians thwarted an attempted terrorist attack Tuesday when a vehicle loaded with explosives attempted to crash through the front gate of a U.S. base in the Afghan capital, according to the U.S. military.

I doubt one in a thousand Americans could spot the flaw. We have been so conditioned to think the way we are told that hardly anyone really thinks anymore.

What does the following military order authorize?

“You are accordingly authorized to employ your forces without restriction…. [operations] should now be focused on the morale of the enemy civil population population….”

For those who still can’t see the flaw, look at the following definitions:

a surprise attack involving the deliberate use of violence against civilians in the hope of attaining political or religious aims

Military operations between enemies

Each of the first two quotes fits one (and only one) of the two definitions.

The military order was issued by Air Vice Marshal Sir Norman Botterly in 1942 and led to the Fire Bombing of Dresden Germany by the USAF and the RAF. The bastards chose to call it “Morale Bombing” but it was nothing less than a terrorist attack, which is what the first definition is.

The CNN reporter chose to label the events he reported as a “terrorist attack” but they clearly fit the second definition of warfare.

Who are the terrorists?
