Democracy is not terror

Posted: Friday, September 14, 2001

In response to Chris Joy (letter to the editor, Sept. 13), the very heart and soul of the American people and our way of life has been viciously sucker-punched by barbarian terrorists. I am dismayed that you feel our "aggressive military and economic systems" have somehow contributed to this disaster and that we share in the responsibility of this despicable act upon innocent American citizens.

By saying "terrorism is a two way street" you are saying that our military and economic systems are terroristic within themselves. In other words, you are saying our American democracy is terrorism. I find this totally repulsive. You, Ms. Joy, have my permission to seek a "humanistic, peace driven, cooperative foreign policy" with the bin Ladens of this world. Be sure and announce that you are an American citizen. Good luck.
