Norwegians Heckle Fear w/Singing not Bombs

Osama Bin Laden and Anders Breivik had similar goals. They hoped their actions would drive the United States and Norway into a fear-driven frenzy - that once confronted with terror, then our governments and people would react with desperation and actually become as angry and evil and murderous as were Bin Laden and Breivik. They hoped that their acts of terrorism against the United States and Norway would give them exactly what they needed - a violent, warlike reaction that they could point to as justification to wage more violence against Americans and Norwegians. But so far - only one of those two men actually succeeded. And while Bin Laden may be dead and at the bottom of the sea - he died knowing that George Bush did exactly what he wanted. On the other hand, Norwegian terrorist Breivik is today hearing the songs of a triumphant population - knowing he failed in his mission to bring fear to the people of Norway. It's time for us to do a lot more singing and a lot less bombing...
