Proof once again that these wacked out, dope head, nut cases are a far greater threat to society and the planet.

Here's a headline I would like see...

Earth Liberation Front attacks KRKO tower - 12 Members Face 20 Years Hard Labor.

ELF has found a position that suits their timidity. The public front decrees that there be no organization, that there is no action unit to join, and that the way to "join" is to form your own cell. That way, they get to claim credit for just about everything done by anyone who wants to pretend to being part of a large, covert effort. It's rather like pretending to be part of a grand resistance against laws restraining driving behavior by speeding from time to time. This, of course, means that there can be nothing like a "Day of Flames," a date on which multiple cells carry out attacks. It also means that, although they pretend that it's all action by like-thinking activists, it's just as likely to be merely people looking to legitimize their criminal impulses. It makes ELF the perfect red herring to cover actions motivated by anything other than environmental activism. The fact that ELF fears to organize, that they value their personal butts far more than their goal, renders them, in the large view, a trivial irritant. They pretend to revolution, but are really like an independence movement that contents itself with beating up an occasional soldier in a dark alley and issuing a press release hailing it as a great victory. They often claim success on account of arrests being very rare. The reality is that they are too frightened to do anything really effective and surrendered to authority, the mere potential for being detected and prosecuted, before they began. As revolutionaries, even as environmental activists, they're laughable. A bit hard on the occasional targets, but hardly a dire threat to civilization.

Agreed. And, I'm sure they all had a cafe latee after the deed was done.

But only that made with Fair Trade certified, organic, shade-grown, peasant coop-produced coffee and milk from non-medicated, free-range cattle who volunteered to be milked by hand by virgin milkmaids of color, after a quick getaway in their Prius. You know. The one with the foamed nickle battery components, the process for which is so nasty that the nickle is sent to China so no one will notice.
