Britain's 911


Written on 8:42 PM by Jack B.

Yesterday, my cousin called from North Carolina at 7:30 EST in the morning telling me simply that "England just had it's 911". I turned on the TV to see all the carnage. Obviously planned to coincide with the G-8 summit, the fact that London just got the Olympics yesterday and was in a happy mood was just icing on the cake for these thugs. Being unhappy miserable people themselves, they can't stand the idea of the "infidels" as happy.

It seem to me Al Queda and Bin Laden miscalculated for the second time. The first time they thought GW Bush was even weaker than his father and that America was soft. They obviously know differently now. Then they counted on punishing America's allies and killed Spaniards in the Madrid bombings. This brought about the election of Zapatero as PM and the removal of Spain from the allied coalition. In other words, Spain elected who Osama Bin Laden wanted elected and did what Osama Bin Laden wanted them to do. They lay down like dogs, not the descendants of the conquistadores. The mess that Zapatero and the Socialists have made in Spain since are in a way that country's comeuppance.

But now Al Queda has made another mistake. Britain is a different kettle of fries altogether. Al Queda probably could have done this to any other country in Western European (even Italy, in my opinion) and the populace would have caved to Osama just like Spain did. But not England. Not Tony Blair. The days of Neville Chamberlain are long gone. Britain will now leave the appeasing to the likes of Spain and France, once great countries that have faded more and more into insignificance on the world stage. Tony Blair knows that there will be no "peace in our time" (as Chamberlain once said of his pact with Hitler) by kow-towing or negotiating with cold-blooded monsters who don't blink at murder or death (even their own). The only way to peace is fight for it and I'm pretty sure the British will continue to do so. Al Queda may be smart enough to plant bombs and kill scores of innocent people but when it comes to what makes people tick, what makes them strong, what makes them resilient - Osama and his goons in their caves know NOTHING.

This is part of what Tony Blair, the U.K.'s PM said yesterday:

It's through terrorism that the people that have committed this terrible act express their values and it's right at this moment that we demonstrate ours.

I think we all know what they are trying to do, they are trying to use the slaughter of innocent people to cow us, to frighten us out of doing the things we want to do, of trying to stop us going about our business as normal as we are entitled to do and they should not and must not succeed.

When they try to intimidate us, we will not be intimidated, when they seek to change our country, our way of life by these methods, we will not be changed.

When they try to divide our people or weaken our resolve, we will not be divided and our resolve will hold firm.

We will show by our spirit and dignity and by a quiet and true strength that there is in the British people,that our values will long outlast theirs.

The purpose of terrorism is just that, it is to terrorize people and we will not be terrorized.

I would like once again to express my sympathy and sorrow for those families that will be grieving so unexpectedly and tragically tonight.

This is a very sad day for the British people but we will hold true to the British way of life
I'm not always a fan of England but in this case just let me repeat that old battle cry: For England and St.George!
