London's Burning

When I read about the horrific terrorist bombings in London this morning I became angry at the murderers who did this and their defenders who will surely blame this not on the people who did it but the countries at the front lines of stopping these monsters. Al-Qaeda, the Taliban, The Muslim Brotherhood and Wahhabi scumfuggs are the most illiberal entities in the known universe yet are defended and even encouraged by liberals. Why? I have no idea. If conservatives are hateful than liberals are just insane.

The far left sometimes speak of Islamofascists like they're the Sand Amish, diverted from their peaceful, organic lives of art and culture by the intrusion of evil capitalistic imperialism. As if their stated agenda of world sublimation is just words. Then in their fantasies they think of Islamofascists as the army that will kill everyone they hate: jocks, Christians, rednecks, the bathed and the good looking. As if the Taliban will spare the NPR crowd from total religious submission out of gratitude. As if.

The Reasonable Man Theory does not apply to people who kill their own daughters for being raped. You can't negotiate with people who love death more than you love life. You can be a coward and give in to terrorists, assuming they will stop once they get what they want, but what if they won't stop no matter what? Read their literature and listen to their words. Yasser Arafat often admitted he didn't mean anything he said in English. In English he said peace and in Arabic he demanded perpetual war. The left knew this but said nothing. Why? They love war as long as the right people get killed.

At a leftist site today I came across the comment "Violence begats violence", one of those sayings that's only true and relevant when it's true and relevant. like Neitzsche's "That which does not kill you makes you stronger." When the oft stated goal of your enemy is to kill you then only violence will stop them from killing you. Peace is a word used mostly by children, cowards and nihilistic psychopaths. Excuse me when I laugh at a rich American supporter of Bin Laden who speaks of peace.

The new and improved GOPVixen understands, "This is a war of attrition. This is a war the next generation will fight. This is a global war with no front, no capital, no flag to capture, and no end in sight -- at least in my lifetime. And what happened in London today was just another battle."

I'm always amazed when I'm accused of being conservative when I write like this. Al-Qaeda and their ilk want to destroy liberalism. They imprison women in burkas and force men to grow beards. These people have no sense of irony and nuance. It's all black and white. There will be no punk rock or freedom of anything when the enemy of your enemy marches down your street victoriously. Only an endless hell that'll make you long for the days when all you had to worry about were jocks laughing at you and Christians proselytzing on street corners.

Emerson, I won't countenance another word said against Mr. Moore's brave Minutemen; you know, the ones blowing themselves up in job queues and throwing molotovs into mosques.

How some parts of what currently claim to be the Left can even look at themselves in the mirror is astounding. Have you perused George Galloway's "statement" on the RESPECT website? Urge to kill rising...rising...

And they're going to pick and pick, just like that sick, twisted little kid you knew in grade school, until even though who have sympathy for them can no longer have sympathy. There is only one way to deal with people like that.

Sorry, I mean "those" who have sympathy for them...

I see you read BlameBush! this morning (Minute Men reference)

Galloway is a real piece of work. I honestly think he's evil and that's not a word I throw around lightly.

Actually, just rereading C. Hitchens to cheer myself up.

Galloway's really a romantic; he longs for the good old days of Stalinism.

This posted on www.punknews.org and I kinda like it:

"What the fuck do you think you're doing? This is London. We've dealt with your sort before. You don't try and pull this on us.
Do you have any idea how many times our city has been attacked? Whatever you're trying to do, it's not going to work.
All you've done is end some of our lives, and ruin some more. How is that going to help you? You don't get rewarded for this kind of crap.
And if, as your MO indicates, you're an al-Qaeda group, then you're out of your tiny minds.
Because if this is a message to Tony Blair, we've got news for you. We don't much like our government ourselves, or what they do in our name. But, listen very clearly. We'll deal with that ourselves. We're London, and we've got our own way of doing things, and it doesn't involve tossing bombs around where innocent people are going about their lives.
And that's because we're better than you. Everyone is better than you. Our city works. We rather like it. And we're going to go about our lives. We're going to take care of the lives you ruined. And then we're going to work. And we're going down the pub.
So you can pack up your bombs, put them in your arseholes, and get the fuck out of our city."

I liked John Mc Caine's comment about "destroying the enemy". But not such a simple task, as we've come to find out.
Bottom line is, the Arabs hate the Jews, the US supports the state of Israel so the hatred is turned twds US and the Western World. Left or Right, this is the basis of what's been going on for thousands of years. There is a really good book on Anti-Semitism written by a Rabbi back in the early 90's that really opened my eyes to the whole scenario (wish I could remember the authors name). To fully understand this whole mess, one must go back 3 to 4 thousand years ago. The grudge is that old. Kinda like an eternal hatred that cannot be erased, except for total enihilation (and where did Hitler and the Krauts come off hating the Jews more than the Arabs? Some nerve).
BTW, I used to be a very liberal New York Democrat. Until I got a REAL job (not pouring coffee, burning tat's or working in a record store, club etc) and realized that the world was a much more complicated place than what is presented by any media outlet, left or right.
