And while I'm on a terrorist insurgency study binge..

This is just one little part of a really FASCINATING *Read: if you are addicted to the news in a troubling way/have an unhealthy affinitiy with conspiracies/think Rumsfeld was an asbolute bastard and Bush a noob* documentary series produced by the BBC a few years ago. Its called "The Power of Nightmares: the Rise of Fear in Politics" and you can watch it all on google videos/youtube. It looks at the rise of religious extremism as we know it today, and the simultaneous rise of Neo-conservatism in the US. I've posted the first 10 minutes of episode 1 of 3 to wet your appetite. GO GO GO!
