Hollywood's misunderstood terrorists

By Victor Davis Hanson: "Moral equivalence is perhaps the most troubling of Hollywood's postmodern pathologies � or the notion that each side that resorts to violence is of the same ethical nature. Steven Spielberg best summed up the theme of his recently released film about the 1972 murder of 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics and the subsequent Israeli hunt of the perpetrators: 'A response to a response doesn't really solve anything. It just creates a perpetual-motion machine.'

Spielberg's 'Munich' assumes just such a false symmetry between the killers who murdered the innocent athletes and the Israeli agents who hunted them down � each in their own way victimized and caught in a cycle of 'perpetual' violence. "

I want to live in a world where the bad guys lose and the good guys win.

That only works if good and bad really exist.
