I don’t know what is in the water at the Facebook offices, but, now that COO Sheryl Sandberg has stepped forth as an expert on military affairs, CEO Mark Zuckerberg has offered his opinions on how to fight back against terrorism. Zuckerberg posted his remarks in the wake of the terrorist attack in Lahore, Pakistan that murdered 70 people and injured over 300… most of which were women and children celebrating Easter.
Apparently, all of that time on maternity leave has softened up Zuckerberg. He posted this:
I believe the only sustainable way to fight back against those who seek to divide us is to create a world where understanding and empathy can spread faster than hate, and where every single person in every country feels connected and cared for and loved. That's the world we can and must build together.
When asked about Zuckerberg’s analysis, Jed Babbin mocked it on Fox Business. The Daily Caller reports the exchange:
[Jed] Babbin, former deputy undersecretary of defense for former President George H. W. Bush, pilloried Zuckerberg’s analysis as patently ridiculous.
“I can’t do anything but laugh,” Babbin said on Fox Business.
“This is a very common position among 12-year-old girls,” Babbin added.
