Doris Lessing (Nobel Prize Laureate)

"September 11 was terrible, but if one goes back over the history of the IRA, what happened to the Americans wasn't that terrible......Some Americans will think I'm crazy. Many people died, two prominent buildings fell, but it was neither as terrible nor as extraordinary as they think. They're a very naive people, or they pretend to be."

**I'm not here to lessen the destruction of the Irish Republican Army, but this Nobel recipient is making a ridiculous comparison.

1. By most accounts the IRA killed around 2000 people over a 30-year period..........And never did the amount of economic or health damages caused by the collapse of the WTC.

2. Why would anyone find the need to compare any terrorist attack? Seems to me they are all terrible.

3. Who is this bitch to say the the 9/11 attacks weren't "terrible" or "extraodinary"? It's too bad the not-so "terrible" or "extraordinary" German attacks on Britain during WWII didn't find her house.

4. She didn't win a Nobel Peace Prize, but I'm glad to see Al Gore can now claim he's of the same mind as other Nobel specialty recipients.**
