Thomas (never been right in my life) Friedman, from his apparently tenured position as most deluded columnist at the New York Times:
"Let’s not fool ourselves. Whatever threat the real Afghanistan poses to U.S. national security, the “Virtual Afghanistan” now poses just as big a threat. The Virtual Afghanistan is the network of hundreds of jihadist Web sites that inspire, train, educate and recruit young Muslims to engage in jihad against America and the West."
Thomas, how about a column about the hundreds of websites right here in America that teach right wingers that our government is a communist Muslim monster, and that it's alright to advocate or engage in any kind of violence or attacks on the rest of us, rather than admit that Democrats won the last election? They are every bit as hateful and self-righteous as any Muslims; and at least Muslims don't have a political party in this country egging them on.
Maybe we could call it a virtual Reich.
