Sorry OFJay, but on this, you are wrong wrong wrong
The attacks in London this morning have made clear the pattern of Islamicist terror; we are, here in America, treated to a macabre parade of attacks against our allies, with the knowledge that the only time we wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be next is when the radicals are all deadÃ¢â‚¬â€by our hand or those who have decided to free themselves from their tyranny.
So this argument goes that we must kill them first ? We must take the fight to them? We must destroy them utterly because otherwise they will destroy us ? Complete fucking bollocks.
Before 1980, where were all these terrorists ? They didn’t exist – at least not as they do now. The person who brought about most of this terrorism is leading what is apparently the greatest free country in the free world. This will be the country where they now do not respect journalism and lock up the press, where they stop the UN from visiting Guantanamo, where they detain their own citizens in Iraq, where ONE person will potentially deny women a basic right of choice, where a Body Modification website has had to move to Canada because of what would otherwise happen, a country where corruption reigns supreme and a country where the literacy rate is appalling low. Wow, you guys who support this war must be so proud of GW Bush – not only is he destroying other countries, but he is destroying YOURS TOO !
It’s a pretty simple concept this next one – get the hell out of their faces / lives / country and maybe they’ll do the same. What is wrong with peaceful co-existence ? yeah, we all know it’s because of the oil though, we know it’s got NOTHING at all to do with anything but oil and profits. The 51% of the USA who voted for Bush have this on their hands – it is they who returned to power the guy who wants to blow up the rest of the world, it is they who have blood on their hands and Tony Blair can wash his hands too but they will remain red. Why is it okay for the USA to steam right in and kill in revenge but not these other people ? Why ? Why can they not have the same right to an action that you want ? George Galloway got this right and yet he is being villified for this. WTF is going on ? When did we turn into Fox News zombies ?
Question: Are the political right wing in America capable of rational thought ? If not, why leave them in power ? Why listen to them ?
