"Do not suppose that this is the end. This is only the beginning of the reckoning. This is only the first sip, the first foretaste of a bitter cup which will be proffered to us year by year unless by a supreme recovery of moral health and martial vigour, we arise again and take our stand for freedom as in the olden time."
- Winston Churchill
As is always the case in these situations, details are sketchy and no one really has a handle on the actual number of casualties involved in this morning's barbaric attack in London. Once again though, innocents have been murdered at the bloody hands of Muslims and, I would suspect, the bulk of the Mulim world will either react with deafening silence or with rejoicing in the streets. Once again, these savages have shown their true face and it is a the face of evil incarnate.
Who do they think they are dealing with? After the Madrid bombing, Spain reacted by promptly placing its tail between its legs, hoping that appeasement would simply make the problem go away. To their dismay, these sons of Allah will now find out that Brits are made of much sterner stuff and appeasement is simply not part of the British lexicon, not any more. This is not the Great Britain of Chamberlain, it is the Great Britain of Churchill and it will act accordingly.
Let us say that we are all Britons today, forever joined by our common history and united in our common cause. Let us mourn our dead and in our grief may we toughen our resolve to protect the civilization that we both hold so dear.
In a predictable orgasm of worthless lip flapping, World Stands With London After Attacks . The usual suspects are shocked, shocked at these senseless attacks and they are lining up shoulder to shoulder with Great Britain in solidarity blah blah blah. Yeah, as I recall, they "stood with the United States" immediately after 9/11 and what good did it do? Once it came to actually doing something, they were nowhere to be found. In fact, they actively undermined us at every turn.
Even as the sites of the London attacks are still smoldering, the likes of Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, Spain's spineless Prime Minister offered Spain's "unconditional help to chase the criminals who perpetrated such a repugnant attack." Criminals? This was no crime, it was an act of war, just as was the Madrid bombing! How can he be so thick as to not understand this simple fact?
A similar response came from France, the object of attacks in the 1990s. Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin ordered the alert level raised and promised Britain the "immediate, full and complete collaboration" of French intelligence.
Aside from the fact that France has been harboring Islamic terrorists, for decades (Arafat and Khomehni immediately come to mind) and aside from the fact that France has been openly hostile to the efforts of the United States and Great Britain in the middle east from the beginning, I find it curious why Great Britain hasn't had "full and complete collaboration" of French intellegence all along. Perhaps they have been too busy giving their "full and complete collaberation" to the enemy in exchange for "Oil for Food" money. On the other hand, I'm still trying to wrap my mind around the use of "French" and "intellegence" in the same sentence. Rather oxymoronic, at the very least.
This long-on-talk, short-on-action crowd simply doesn't get it and I'm afraid that they never will. The consorteum of ostriches comprised mainly of France, Gemany, Spain and the entire worthless farce known as the "European Union" has a long history of not knowing the nature of evil - even when bitten in the arse by it. We - the U.S. and Great Britain - clearly do not need the help of "allies" whose loyalties are questionable, at best.
