Maybe It WAS the Vikings or the Mongols?

In the good,  really old old days in Europe when the big long ships with the dragons up front arrived for a little looting, murder and general rapine no one was in any doubt
that the rowdy, red-haired rowers with the horns on their hats  were Vikings.

Same goes when the peasants heard in the night  a few thousand horses coming their way. They knew immediately  that the guys with the yellow skin and slanty eyes  riding those ponies were Mongols. And their arrival was decidedly not good news.

But, as the memorial services for the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and its 24-hour coverage by the Wussiland  media made clear , it was a terrible, sad event but  there was scant indication of who was the enemy.

Generally, the popular politically correct spinspeak identified the enemy as simply anonymous “terrorists ” or “terrorist extremists.” Presumably a terrorist extremist is much worse than a plain vanilla  terrorist, the sort who possibly those who use dirty knives for decapitations. But neither appellation tells you whom to avoid in dark
alleys.

The Islamists (whomever they may be) don’t seem to have this problem.
