American anger at shock attack
'The bomb attacks in Saudi Arabia brought reactions of shock, anger and amazement across the United States... The overwhelming reaction in the US is that the blasts show the war on terror is far from over. Successful invasions in Iraq and Afghanistan would not stop these kinds of attacks, Dr Kushner said. 'The only way you deal with these people is to kill Al-Qaeda. You must continuously put pressure on them.'

This is what the American (and Australian) people are being told by their government and its propaganda apparatus, the corporate media. The concept that the terror is a response to US policy decisions, and that stopping the terror requires political and not military solutions, is not allowed to be aired.
