Readers’ Letters and Opinions
The Daily Star is pleased to provide a forum for debate on a range of subjects, from local cultural activities to international politics.
Dozens, sometimes even hundreds, of letters fall into the editor’s mailbox daily. In order to keep the letters timely, The Daily Star generally produces a special letters section. When the influx of letters is particularly large, extra space is made available accordingly.
If you would like to submit a letter for publication, please remember to include your full name (first and last) and address, including city. The Daily Star typically only publishes letters under 400 words, and these are subject to editing. The Daily Star will not acknowledge unsolicited submissions.
“The West must cut its terror ties”
January 6, 2010
They call them terrorists because the world hates terrorists and that word, “terrorists,” is a bad word. The funny thing is that while Americans are very worried and paranoid about terrorists doing something to harm their country, they’re off occupying and destroying whole nations themselves, and leading the world down the path toward destruction.
It seems to me that people who kill others without proof of their guilt – or even without being sure who they’re killing – are terrorists themselves. They’re just highly paid assassins, using hi-tech weaponry like the drones in Pakistan’s lawless tribal areas.
And such people often “speak lies in hypocrisy,” accusing others of the very things which they themselves are guilty of.
