    Hi Robin,

    Can 't agree on that, though !!
    But I suppose what you wrote was sarcastic !?
    If not, let me remind you of the fact that by eliminating bad things, like
    terrorism, you are creating an ' absolute ' world !!
    Nietzsche said, that conflict must be !!

    Terrorism keeps the balance straight., it is like what Lawrence said,
    those attacks were not pointless, they had their reasons, now we are
    facing the consequences, we need results and finally it will prove to be
    a cornerstone of a better world.
    Without it, you will draw the world to its far extreme ends of ' absolute-
    ness ' ( the American- way) and that is no good thing for both sides.
