War Provides Terrorists Long-Awaited Motive
Terrorists worldwide say they
finally have the long-awaited motive to attack
civilians with bombs, guns, poison gas and even
perhaps commercial airliners.
Speaking on behalf of the League of Islamic
Extremists, Iranian President Mohammad Khatami
warned on Thursday that the U.S.-led military
assault on Iraq would increase violence and
extremism in the world.
Until now, terrorists have waited for years,
passively and peacefully, for an excuse to blow
up buses, hijack planes and knock down buildings
full of civilians.
"With this war you are giving a green light to
extremist movements and violence-seekers to
answer back your violence with violence," Mr.
An unnamed terrorist said he could hardly contain his
enthusiasm at the Iranian leaders remarks.
"Now, we can act," said the terrorist. "These have been
depressed times for the terror industry. We were out of
work because we didn't have a reason to strike. That's all
behind us now that the U.S. has invaded Iraq.
