How can we call ourselves civilised?

I’M sure there would be dancing in the streets of Fallujah, Baghdad and Kabul if someone was to shoot an unarmed George W Bush or Tony Blair, but most people who have suffered from the “War on Terror” would prefer to see them in handcuffs answering for mass murder like bin Laden should have.

When our talking heads mourn the deaths of civilians in Fallujah as much as they do those in New York, then we can call ourselves civilised.

I doubt the killing of bin Laden angered half as many people in the Middle East as the appointment of Blair as a peace envoy.
