They all look the same, said Trent Lott

from CNN via Crooks & Liars:

Lott went on to say he has difficulty understanding the motivations behind the violence in Iraq.

“It’s hard for Americans, all of us, including me, to understand what’s wrong with these people,” he said. “Why do they kill people of other religions because of religion? Why do they hate the Israeli’s and despise their right to exist? Why do they hate each other? Why do Sunnis kill Shiites? How do they tell the difference? They all look the same to me.”

You know, for once I think I know how the Trent feels. I have the same problem. Not so much with the groups he mentions. Being bombed and then being told to like it tends to make people mad. They’re weird that way.

But when it comes to these people, man, do I know how he feels. Their violence is so senseless. Why do they hate everyone who’s different? Is that why they all look the same to me?
