The biggest load of bollocks I have heard recently is the claim, made by many a politician and various other talking heads, that the terrorists who were responsible for the carnage in Paris were cowards.
Heck, they were many things, many nasty things, but they were most certainly not cowards.
I know this because I am a fully signed up member of the International League of Cowards and there is no way I would even consider blowing myself into bloody pieces for the sake of any cause. I might, at a push, be persuaded to risk my life defending a cause I felt particularly attached to (such as the continuation of my wife's life) but deliberately killing myself. No!
People who believe that suicide bombers are cowards are fools. What is more worrying is the fact that such fools will act in foolish ways and put us all in even more danger than we already are.
