One never really knows who one's enemy is.More Jurgen Habermas [08/10/2011 11:08:26]

Partisans fight on familiar territory with professed political objectives to conquer power. This is what distinguishes them from terrorists.More Jurgen Habermas [08/10/2011 11:08:37]

What was new was the symbolic force of the targets struck. The attackers did not just physically cause the highest buildings in Manhattan to collapse; they also destroyed an icon in the household imagery of the American nation.More Jurgen Habermas [08/10/2011 11:08:58]
