    German Letter Bomb Found After Athens Blasts

    Excerpted from “German Letter Bomb Found After Athens Blasts” By MICHAEL SLACKMAN and NIKI KITSANTONIS, The New York Times, Published: November 2, 2010
    A package containing explosives shipped by air from Greece was found in the mail room at the German chancellor’s office on Tuesday, just a few hours after letter bombs exploded at the Swiss and Russian embassies in Athens and three more devices were found addressed to other embassies there. …
    A new era of left-wing violent reaction to austerity and regressive policies may be on its way.
    “Real environmentalists live in cities, and they visit what's left of the wilderness as gently and respectfully as possible.” — Donna Moulton, letter to the editor, Tucson Weekly, published on August 23, 2001

    Because it's Left Wing Reistance to the Evil Right Wing Corporations, Racists, Homophobes, Sexists, Bigots and assholes.

    It's ok when the Progressives are conducting terrorist acts to fight Regressive policies, ya see.

    Since no one here said they support terrorism, I'm pretty sure you pulled that straight from your ass.

    Actually, it's how I interpreted this comment:

    Not a stretch, when you figure how it's worded.

    Look at Hoplite's surprise at it suddenly being, "Left Wing violence". I only answered his question.

    Simply because Chappy says he thinks it may happen, doesn't mean he supports it happening. For example I think the Tea Party will do well in the election tonight, however I really don't support anything the TP stands for.

    See I can separate reality, from what I want reality to be. I don't live in my own imagination and project it onto the world

    You only due this out of assumptions of the poster's political lean in combination with the comment, that they support terrorist violence.
    There is no issuance of support for terrorism. Or is this not a left wing episode?
    Is it possible that the poster stated a rote fact?

    ...and you ran away with it?

    I'm confused because I saw almost no reason from the article to call it "left wing" yet the OP somehow felt it was justified.

    Think about this comment: "reaction to austerity and regressive policies may be on its way." Then, lookup the definition of austerity and regressive, then read it again.

    Because the OP sees nothing wrong with the motivation.
