Friedman: 'us' vs. 'them'
July 12, 2005
C.N. Todd comments on Thomas Friedman recent NY Times' column: "He repeats over and over again phrases like 'mother country' and 'heart of a major Western capital,' trying to emphasize that this is something that has happened to 'Us' -- so we are to conclude that this tragedy is so much worse then, say, casualties in Iraq or Afghanistan who find themselves caught in the path of an Iraqi combatant."
