Don't be a Useful Idiot

When I grow up, I want to write like my friend Kat of The Middle Ground. She takes laser aim today at the tools used by successful terrorist groups.

It takes more than warm bodies willing to die for their cause. The full success of terrorists like Zarqawi and Bin Laden requires negative propaganda from their victims.

Terrorism Inc: How To Be A Successful Terrorist

Using your enemy's "morality" against them, even if you have no morality yourself.

This section will tell you how to use the "useful idiots" and the media to point out every mistake of your enemy. This is an extremely successful propaganda technique against a much larger enemy. Because you are the "underdog" you are allowed 200 atrocities for every one of their mistakes that results in the death or maiming of innocents. We will teach you how to use this to your advantage, how to use "useful idiots" and the media to spred the word; subcontracting work to actors to stage events and even committing actions yourself that you can get the "useful idiots" and the media to present as the work of your enemy.

Read the whole thing here. Then decide whether you want to fight the terrorists, or give in to them ... and act accordingly.
