Am I an apologist for the people who did what happened ? No, not at all, but let’s not be conned into thinking that all this came out of the blue. This came about because of the way our country has conducted itself. If the UK had not visited disrespect, death and destruction upon other countries, then they would not be coming here. The UK is reaping what it has sowed. And as distasteful / disturbing / horrifying as events were, they bear little comparison to what has occurred in our name elsewhere. We elected these leaders – and the joy of that is that Blair can point at all of us and say “I was acting as you wanted me too” – he will pass the burden of blame off himself and onto us.
We should not be asking Muslims to apologise, we should be asking Blair why he does not pull out of Iraq, Afghanistan and others. He will say “Because of what they have done” and the people in those places will fight back “because of what has been done” – isn’t that just so damn childish and pathetic ?? If this were 2 kids you’d bang their heads together and tell them to sort things out “like adults” – but just look at what we have – 2 adults who cannot make a proper decision but will continue to let people die in what they proclaim is the path to righteousness. Blair is saying that what we need to do is avenge those that died yesterday – by killing more people. And if they complain at being killed, we kill some more. And if we obliterate them so we can be safe then that’s fine by him. HE is making us UNsafe. HE can make us safe very very easily – he could withdraw from his unholy alliance and reduce deaths and the chance of deaths instantly, or he can stay where he is and by doing so sign the death warrants for thousands. This is not about surrendering, or giving in – it’s a straightforward problem to which there is a straightforward answer. Blair and Bush have more people they can send to their deaths than the people who are bombing the UK, but those extremists will go to any lengths to achieve their goals.
Home Secretary Charles Clarke has said there is no evidence the attacks on London were carried out because of the UK’s role in the Iraq war. BBC
What ? So Charles Clarke thinks that our Govt can ride into countries with the USA, blow people up, destroy families, homes and infrastructure and no-one might get just a little bit annoyed at that and plot revenge ? Mr Clarke – you are a poor excuse for a politician.
[Charles Clarke] He also suggested that in future civil liberties might have to be curtailed ….. “ID cards ‘wouldn’t stop attacks'”
“Make no mistake Britain will almost certainly have to sacrifice some of our ancient legal rights if we wish to protect our citizens.” Daily Mail
This is great …. what it means is that we LOSE our freedoms while we let Blair et al protect us. Here’s a better idea – Blair should stop being butt-f*cked by Bush, get the hell out of bed with him and take our forces out of countries where they are clearly not welcome. But we’ll still have the ID cards, and when our freedoms reduce we can thank our masters can’t we. Mushrooms are safe too – in the dark, being fed bullshit.
The politicians will use this to further their own agenda both at home and abroad while the actual people matter not. We should not believe a single thing they say. What are the odds that Blair too would love a Patriot Act ?
I can see it now…Blair and Bush climbing out of a bunker into a desolate, destroyed and barren world, looking around and high-fiving “Hell we showed those guys who the damn boss is!”
