The Brits and Terror!


The Brits and Terror!

The best way to deal with this is for Britain, Denmark, the US and Italy to send a couple of more divisions to Iraq, and every time there is a terrorist bombing anywhere, for that country to send troops to Iraq. If you attack us, we will attack you with more strength than before. Terrorism needs to receive the opposite result it seeks.

Al Queda has said they didn’t expect a response from the US after 911.  The success of their terror in Spain only emboldened them. They seem to respect only strength and power, if respect is the right word.

Although I don’t agree with London Mayor Ken Livingston’s politics, his speech today was right on the mark:

He said: "London has been the target of a cowardly terrorist attack. Londoners have responded calmly and courageously. …

Innocent people going from all of London’s communities have been targeted by this indiscriminate attack. I urge Londoners from all of this city’s diverse communities and faiths to support one another and stand together against terrorism. I want to say one thing: This was not a terrorist attack against the mighty or the powerful, it is not aimed at presidents or prime ministers, it was aimed at ordinary working-class Londoners.

I know that you do fear you may fail in your long term objective: to destroy our free society. And I will show you why you will fail. In the days that follow, look at our airports, look at our seaports and look at our railways. Nothing you do, however many of us you kill will stop that life … where freedom is strong and people can live in harmony … whatever you do, however many you kill, you will fail.”
