A Killer By Any Other Name...

….is still a murderer.

In the case of the slaughtered schoolchildren in Beslan, Russia, the killers are known by any number of euphemistic names in Major Media. They are gently referred to as “Hostage-takers”…”Extremists”…”Attackers”…”Insurgents”…”Rebels”…”Separatists.” It seems that Old Media will go to any lengths to avoid telling the truth about what really happened in that school at the hands of yes, say it: Islamic Terrorists.

They are brutal, cold-blooded murderers. They are sick in their souls, if indeed they possess souls, and subhuman in their emotional and intellectual processes.

And these are the creatures with which John Kerry would have us wage “a more sensitive war.” Merciful God, please protect us from such a stupid leader at this critical time in our history.

I have a few names for these subhuman beings. Monster is not strong enough. Butcher? There’s truth to it. Honestly, I think perhaps we’ve reached a stage in history where we need a new word to describe a creature that would deliberately torture, stab, shoot, or blow up hundreds of innocent children.

In the mean while, the term “Islamic Terrorist” will suffice.
