I know that I am probably writing this a little too late but it’s a point that I think is important and I have been busy the past few days and not
had time to write this tread.
Last week I came home from work just a hour after the terrible events in Norway, I caught I quick up date of events on BBC news who where reporting
that these attacks may have been the responsibility of Al’Qa’ida or Libya. I had a conversation with myself analysing the information I had
acquired from my tellybox and reached the conclusion that this may be the work of a right wing group. My reasoning for this was that I did not think
Libya had the capability to conduct such an attack and would not risk international outrage over the killing of children. I also thought it was
unlikely to be the work of radical Islamic groups as there was nothing to suggest any suicide attacks and that again killing children was hardly their
MO. The Mumbai attacks did cross my mind but the attacks unfolding in Norway did not feel like the same thing, with one gun man dressed as a copper.
My suspicions that this was a right wing group were only compounded by the fact no prominent group had yet taken responsibility.
But this thread is not about my analytical skills, no this thread is about the idiotic and ignorant “terrorism experts”. No matter what channel I
checked every one of these guys were talking about how this was either an Al’Qa’ida linked group or Libya. I recall one guy who actually went as
far to talk about a group he admitted to having never heard of who had claimed responsibility and finished his monologue of pseudo-intellectual
rubbish by saying “yeah they are probably connected to Al’Qa’ida”.
On every news program they had a different yet identical man in a gray suit who just came out of a university lecture theatre with his doctorate under
his chubby arm spouting the biggest load of crap about something he clearly knew nothing about. Every one of them sat on those comfy looking chairs in
front of the camera and told the attractive news anchor that this was almost definitely Al’Qa’ida or Libya, as I screamed at my TV waiting for the
moment one of them considered the possibility off right wing terrorists. I saw at least two of them go on about how this probably was not right wing
terrorism and gave a very eloquent yet utter stupid reason for this not being the responsibility of right wing terrorists because Norway was such a
liberal society such extreme right wing views could not flourish.
It was so annoying I went to bed hopping for a proper explanation as to who was responsible in the morning
The next morning my alarm goes off, I have a shower, make a coffee and stick the news on. Now it’s one every station that it turns out this was the
work of a right wing nut job. To make matters worse the same so called “terrorism experts” are now giving us some in depth explanation about the
nature of right wing terrorism. Not one of them admitted to being wrong, it was embarrassing.
Lesson learned, don’t pay any attention to the terrorism experts on the news.
I will stick to my books.
