We expats of the Banana Republics have lived with home-grown terrorists, and many of us have left our countries, cultures, everything we knew, to get away from them. We know it’s no use saying, “Oh, but he was mentally ill ...” We know a terrorist when we see one. 

What these terrorists seem to have in common are feelings of hopelessness, helplessness, rage, frustration -- what Che Guevara called 'hate’.

Hate is a factor in the struggle, Che wrote in 1967, the year of his death, unyielding hatred for the enemy which pushes a human being beyond his natural limitations, turning him into an effective, violent, selective, cold killing machine. Our soldiers have to be thus. Without hate we cannot triumph over a brutal enemy.

At this time, home-grown terror is on our minds every day, and every week, in the US and Canada. Most recently a number of homemade pipe bombs were delivered to key Democrats in the US, and we are still spinning over the killings on Danforth Avenue in Toronto on July 22.

Hopelessness and rage - not mental illness - is the cause here. And governments are expected to respond and to reduce the attacks. But when the rhetoric rises and the pundits chatter, and nothing is done, the result is yet another attack.

Las Vegas massacre.

For the general public, they key is to stay vigilant, and keep informed. Here is the link to John R. Schindler’s False Flag Terrorism:Myth and Reality on . It’s sensible and detached and neutral and just right. It is also posted by the author on Twitter: twitter @20committee .

These acts of terror are saying, "Attention. I want attention!"

So, listen for a change. Listen, learn and take action.
