This is the same attitude that those in power in Washington and London displayed towards Iraq.
When the Clinton administration was told that the US-inspired sanctions were resulting in the deaths of around 1,000 Iraqi children every month, they shrugged their shoulders and replied:
"We think the price is worth it." (Madeline Albright's words to the UN Assembly).
People in America and Europe now face a choice they can continue to allow their politicians to wage a phoney war on terror or they can seek to understand why people fly planes into skyscrapers and bomb train stations.
