Behaving Irrationally?

This article, describing a mutiny as passengers refuse to fly says the passengers were "behaving irrationally."

Read it. They were behaving extremely rationally. And civily, for that matter. No muss, no fuss.

The passengers were responding to a government's refusal to "profile": a political-correctness-and-lawyer-driven insistence that, although all terrorists are young-to-middle-aged Muslim males, this piece of information must be given no weight in security measures.

Sorry. It's their lives.

Note, too, the end of the title: "... until Asians are removed." Perhaps the reporter thinks that they made all the elderly Chinese women hobble off.
