“Every bomb that is dropped by Russia and the Assad regime is radicalizing more and more people.” ~Secretary of State John Kerry (source).

I’m not surprised.  If you drop a bomb on somebody, they’re likely to want to drop a bomb on you.  I wouldn’t characterize that as “radical,” I’d day that’s human nature.

There’s a story in the bible, Matthew 7:3-5, that might apply here:

And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?  Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, “Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye”; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?  Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

Kerry claims to be Christian, but to be fair the bible is a really, really long book so he might not have gotten to this part yet. Give him time, he’ll get there.


One thought on “Radical

  1. …is it wrong for me to be thankful that the machinations that have combined to where I am safely ensconced in my home in the middle of America and typing from an affordable laptop, with DirecTV streaming through a flat screen television..?
