Examples

  • A civil war in Sri Lanka, extending nowhere else, untainted on either side by even a whiff of Islamism -- a war in which a minority people, slaughtered mercilessly for decades, have come to identify (at least to some extent) with a brutal counterforce called the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, is now effortlessly connected to 9/11.
