Talking with Terrorists

There’s been a lot of heat generated by a South Australian senate hopeful requesting that Australia sit down with the alleged JI head and talk peace, apparently talking to murderers is just not the done thing.

Except that it has been done before, with numerous terror organisations, like the IRA, the Tamul Tigers, the Palestinians, the ETA, not all with great success, but the point is that it was OK to talk to those terrorist organisations, but not the current crop?

Although it’s a bit of a stretch to call the Solomon Island militiamen terrorists, they’re still murderers, and we were talking to them.

Prosecute the premeditated murderers of innocent people to the full extent of the law, but don’t lose the possibility of persuading those contemplating these barbaric acts from doing so.
