Death of Osama Bin Laden


 

On the eve of the Canadian election, we heard from the White House that Osama Bin Laden had been located, and, after a “firefight”, was killed by the US agents. Hundreds of people gathered outside the White House, and hundreds more in Time Square as well as in “Ground Zero” and elsewhere celebrating. While I have no sympathy for Osama Bin Laden nor do I support any of his activities, I have deep reservation on the response of the US Government to the “terrorists” in the past decade. Just as I was going to write a short note to account for my view on the incident, I came across the following article (written by an American scholar) which resonated my very feeling. I thought the article probably would speak very much more eloquently than what I could write down. Here, I have enclosed it for your reference.

One Response to Death of Osama Bin Laden

    美國以暴易暴,只會加深仇恨,延續恐怖主義。冤冤相報何時了?加拿大人在親美的哈珀大多數政府統治之下,恐怕也將會生活在恐懼之中了。
