    This about sums up the average Australian's position on terrorism and Afghanistan. How does this compare with the attitude of Mister and Ms Average in the US? I think that this is a reaction to the political correctness in the media. I find it hard not to agree with her.

    "Written by a housewife in New South Wales, Australia, to her

    Local newspaper. This is one ticked off lady.

    'Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was it or

    was it not started by Islamic people who brought it to our

    shores on September 11, 2001 and have continually

    threatened to do so since.

    Were people from all over the world, not brutally murdered

    that day, in downtown Manhattan , across the Potomac from

    The nation's capitol and in a field in Pennsylvania ?

    Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a

    horrible, burning or crushing death that day, or didn't they?

    And I'm supposed to care that a a few Taliban were claiming to

    be tortured by a justice system of the nation they come from

    and are fighting against in a brutal insurgency.

    I'll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in

    and repents for incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11.

    I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle

    East start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere belief of

    which is a crime punishable by beheading in Afghanistan.

    I'll care when these thugs tell the world they are sorry

    for hacking off Nick Berg's head (Journalist) while Berg

    screamed through his gurgling slashed throat.

    I'll care when the cowardly so-called 'insurgents' in

    Afghanistan come out and fight like men instead of

    disrespecting their own religion by hiding in mosques.

    I'll care when the mindless zealots who blows themselves

    up in search of nirvana care about the innocent children

    within range of their suicide bombs.

    I'll care when the Australian media stops pretending that

    their freedom of speech on stories is more important than

    the lives of the soldiers on the ground or their families

    waiting at home to hear about them when something happens.

    In the meantime, when I hear a story about an Australian

    soldier roughing up an Insurgent terrorist to obtain

    information, know this: I don't care.

    When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when

    he is told not to move because he might be booby-trapped,

    you can take it to the bank: I don't care.

    When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and a

    prayer mat, and fed 'special' food that is paid for by my

    tax dollars, is complaining that his holy book is being

    'mishandled,' you can absolutely believe in your heart of

    hearts: I don'tcare.

    And oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes it's

    spelled 'Koran' and other times 'Quran.' Well, Jimmy

    Crack Corn and, you guessed it, I don't care!!"
