- The "decapitation" myth: See, all we have to do is find the big boss, kill him, and then all terrorists will lay down their arms. It's like Mario Bros. Except Osama Bin Laden is Bowser. And instead of fire flowers, we use JDAMs.
- The "terrorists club" myth: All terrorists are in league with each other, and share the same goals. So if one main leader changes his policy (or is killed, see #1) then we'll have "peace". I swear to God, one of the characters actually said "this could finally bring peace" because one dude was willing to give up his car-bombing ways.
I'm not a big believer in the idea that TV must strictly adhere to reality, but for the love of all that's holy we've been at this for years now. Can we eventually have a mature treatment of these issues? Cuz y'know, it's not like terrorism is relevant to modern culture in any way shape of form.
Instead, we get Rupert Murdoch airing snuff porn. Gah.
