Dividing us among races, nations and sport teams is an unnatural thing, and not surprising, it usually ends in violence.

Personal defence, security, weapons of mass destruction, terrorism, crime, are words that are becoming annoyingly mainstream and familiar in these days. Violence does exist, but there is also a great deal of tabloid-like behaviour and exaggeration regarding it, plus double standards: Palestine and Israel are two prime examples of nations that are both victims and the cause of their own violence; Palestinians and Israelis have become consumers of violence, which is created there by popular demand. The case of the United States and its invasion of Iraq is another unfortunate example of how people may mess things up needlessly, and then cry wolf.

Indeed, problems related to terrorism exist and represent a problem for the survival of peaceful and good-willed people across the globe; there is a lot of exaggeration, but the problem is real and you never know who may be the next terrorist.

This does not mean that you have to become paranoid with suspicion, but sometimes it may be necessary to check the records of people before letting them into certain jobs or teaching some skills: the terrorists that perpetrated the attacks of 2001 in the United States learned to fly at normal flight schools in the very country that they intended to hurt.

But a good detective work is essential: while Al-Qaida was indeed based in Afghanistan, no connection was found between Saddam Hussein and that terrorist organisation, neither the feared weapons of mass destruction were ever found, and after tens of thousands of deaths and suffering for everyone, the United States faces now an almost sure and humiliating defeat at the hands of insurgents that have demonstrated to be far more capable in combat than the mother of all armies, like what happened in Vietnam. A needless bloodbath under any standard, and inexcusable as well, even if the pretence of liberation is put forward: the Iraqui dictator was sponsored and supported by the U.S.A. for many years.

Meanwhile, despite the fact that Mr. Osama Bin Laden is a Saudi citizen, as almost all the terrorist that killed so many U.S. citizens in 2001, the U.S. government and particularly, members of the Bush family, continue to shake hands with Saudi representatives and businessmen, all smiles and friendship; there were never sanctions or even protests directed to Saudi Arabia, and relatives of Mr. Osama Bin Laden were allowed to leave the United States shortly after the attacks on the country without questions, while other people suffer all sorts of human rights abuses at Guantanamo.

This double standard will not only be a shameful part of U.S. history in the future: it proves that aside from doing a good investigative job you have to have goodwill, because if not, there are things that you will never see.

Doing things together helps bring those artificial barriers down.
