I just wish they were kidding

Conrad spots some archetypical cluelessness in the Guardian - Arms Are for Hugging, but Yours Got Blown Off:
Two hundred innocent civilians murdered by terrorists in Spain and hundreds more maimed: The Guardian has the answer:
An international conference, to bridge the divide between Muslim and Christian communities, should be one first step. But there are many others. We need to take the fight against terror out of America's hands. We need to get beyond the them and us, the good guys and the bad guys, and seek a genuinely collective response. Europe should seize the moment that America failed to grasp.
No them and us, no good guys and bad guys, just a big group hug and a chorus of kumbaya.

Of course, the Islamist terrorists have already answered the question 'can't we all just get along?'. The answer was "no". Or, as Hezbollah leader Hussein Massawi put it: "We are not fighting so that you will offer us something. We are fighting to eliminate you."

Fatuous jackasses.
How did so many folks reach adulthood while remaining completely naive?
