Phillip Adams on the 2005 Bali bombings

I think this is a good piece, though I rather hope that Phillip Adams is not deadly serious speaking about "these dangerous and difficult times".

It is a brave man who tries to put the Bali bombings into perspective against other realms of terror such as Iraq. Terror there is in Iraq even if it be accepted that it is not caused by terrrorists. Terror there was in Iraq before, too. When civilian casualties start getting counted in the hundreds of thousands by respected commentators like Robert Fisk, I think any Iraqi near a centre of conflict would be nervous, nay terrified. As Adams points out, the conflict in Iraq takes scores, sometimes hundreds of lives a day.

That has to be one of the most sober articles I have ever read from Adams. Normally what he writes is trash.

Needs to learn how to spell 'Ireland' though.
