nutty professor says, “america overreacted to 9/11, widespread panic ensued in America”

The woman is a moonbat. A loony tune.
And people seek her advice ?  Yup.

Irish-born Professor Richardson is an internationally renowned scholar of terrorism and security studies and regularly advises policy makers.

So now ya know why things are so screwed up.

I’m no expert on “the troubles”, but I don’t recall the Brits being attacked with such a staggering loss of life in one day in any city here.

Americans ‘overreacted’ to 9/11 terror attacks because they’re not as resilient as Brits, says Oxford University’s first female vice-chancellor

· Terrorism expert Professor Louise Richardson said 9/11 provoked such a response because violent extremism was a ‘new experience’ in the US

· Widespread panic ensued in US after atrocity caused almost 3,000 deaths

· First female vice-chancellor said UK is more ‘resilient’ in the face of terror

· Said combating psychological impact of terror is the best counter measure

By Eleanor Harding, Education Correspondent For The Daily Mail

Americans ‘overreacted’ to the 9/11 attacks, according to the newly appointed first female vice-chancellor of Oxford University.

Terrorism expert Professor Louise Richardson said the 2001 atrocity provoked such a response because violent extremism was a ‘new experience’ in the US.

Widespread panic ensued in America after al-Qaeda hijacked four passenger airliners and flew them into buildings, causing almost 3,000 deaths.
In contrast, British citizens have shown themselves to be more ‘resilient’ in the face of terror when dealing with violence during the Troubles in Northern Ireland, she said.

Professor Richardson, who lived and worked in the US for many years, said that combating the psychological impact of terror was the best counter measure.

She said: ‘The whole genius of terrorism is to have a greater psychological impact.

‘The reason random attacks have so much more impact is that if no-body is chosen, no-body is safe and the fear is much more widespread. I think central to any counter-terrorism campaign should be a resilient population.

‘And I have to say the British population in the course of the Troubles and violence in Northern Ireland proved really quite resilient I think – far more so than the US and the scale of the reaction and overreaction in the US to the 9/11 atrocity.

‘This was a reflection of the fact that this was a such a new experience for the US.’

Irish-born Professor Richardson is an internationally renowned scholar of terrorism and security studies and regularly advises policy makers.

Professor Richardson, who has led St Andrews for more than six years, was nominated to become the first female vice chancellor in Oxford University’s history.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
