"You're either with us, or you are with the terrorists.
Its pretty simple. Theres the good guys with the white hats over here and the bad guys with black hats over there, the ones that Canadas Chief of Defence Staff called detestable murderers and scumbags. Our job is to kill them and, I guess, as long as they keep wearing those black hats well no who to kill.
But of course, reality sometimes gets in the way. There are lots of grey areas, though perhaps not so much grey matter, in the strictly black and white confines of the Manichean brain.
Sometimes black is white. Remember the Newspeak slogans from Orwells 1984?
War is peace, ignorance is strength, freedom is slavery.
But try telling that to state terrorists. You might end up dead.
