Paranoia Srikes Deep

I complain a lot about most people know ing squat about history. Hell's bells, most of them can't seem to recall what happened yesterday ...

Seven years after the Sept. 11 attacks, there is no consensus outside the United States that Islamist militants from al Qaeda were responsible, according to an international poll published Wednesday.

Remember, these are the same people who overwhelmingly want Senator Obama to be president of the United States. But you really do need to read the whole article to see the depth of lunacy out there:

The U.S. government was to blame, according to 23 percent of Germans and 15 percent of Italians.


Israel was behind the attacks, said 43 percent of people in Egypt, 31 percent in Jordan and 19 percent in the Palestinian Territories. The U.S. government was blamed by 36 percent of Turks and 27 percent of Palestinians.

In Mexico, 30 percent cited the U.S. government and 33 percent named al Qaeda.

How is one supposed to respond to this?

Here is a dose of sanity from Victor Davis Hanson to treat what is bothering you.
