Rant: doublespeak

I don't intend to get political here. But I just wanted to pass on something that my brother Screwy pointed out a while ago in similar circumstances to today's. Next time you hear a politician saying
if we stop the peace process we give the terrorists what they want

(Tony Blair, today), be aware that he's talking nonsense.

If people are still getting killed, there is no peace process. You can't just go about saying, we will never let terrorists get in the way of the peace process; the "peace process" doesn't exist in the abstract. This is not peace; calling it peace is the worst kind of doublespeak.
