Good Old Fashioned Anarcho-Terrorism

The recent posting of explosive parcels to EU institutions as well Nicolas Sarkozy and Angola Merkel by a Greek left-wing terrorist group has a distinctly retro feel. It’s somewhat reminiscent of the Red terrorism of the 1970s in West Germany and Italy. However, it’s even more like the Anarchist terrorism of the Nineteenth century targeting hapless Russian Tsars and American Presidents.

Of course, we also have to wonder what on earth the so-called “Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire” is hoping to achieve. Did they really think there little packages would reach all the way to the Président while he has breakfast with his statuesque wife? And of course, the inevitable “What if they were Muslim?”
