Uh, North, since when do YOU start right-wing alarmist threads here?

 

Ken Burch

You aren't going to argue that this vindicates waterboarding and Cheney's whole Middle East policy, are you?

Christ.

(on edit) btw, you do realize they got these guys THREE YEARS AGO, don't you?

You just freaked out over nothing.

These attacks were formulated, and to be coordinated, and  launched from Britain. The response is overwhelmingly obvious. Bomb London, occupy 10 Downing St., and install a truly democratic government.

Ken Burch

Works for me.

Of course, you'd have to liquidate the Blairite and Tory militants who'd keep blowing up the electical system.

NorthReport

Yea, right on, let's all go out to picket and support these nut bars who wanted to blow up Canadians in Canadian planes.

I think I'll pass, thank you.

Are you in a different thread? I said, you're right: Bomb London! What's the matter? You can't take "yes" for an answer?

NorthReport

We should all be supportive of these charming people. Alfter all, they only wanted to kill 10,000 people.

That puts the final nail in the coffin.

I know, I know, FM.

According to you these 3 criminals were probably framed or something like that, and Scotland Yard, or whoever is holding them should probably just let them go with a slight tap on the wrist.

Guess what. It ain't gonna happen, as they are going to go to the slammer for a long, long time.

Ken Burch

What was your whole point here, North?  This thread was pointless right-wing propaganda.  What happened was a law enforcement issue, was quietly dealt with, and there's no reason for you to be freaking about it now.  This event does NOT vindicate Bush, Blair and Harper.  And besides, didn't you USE to be progressive and pro-civil liberties?

NorthReport

Settle down Ken.

Do you seriously believe because someone is left-wing that they think that these would be mass murderers should go free. Give me a break. I know, I know, according to you people should take leave of their senses when a situation like this occurs, and lose all common sense. I think I'll just pass on that one if you don't mind.

There's nothing much to say. The plot was foiled and these pigs will hopefully spend the rest of their lives in jail. The system worked as it is supposed to.

I'm not sure what your point is North Report. I don't know anyone who is against the fact that these people have been arrested and their plot foiled.

NorthReport

Exactly Stockholm.

Ken Burch

Therefore, why even start this thread?  What did you want us to say?  This is a story that was over three years ago.  What, may I ask, do you want from the rest of us?

And it's an absurd slander on the rest of us to imply that anyone who doesn't share whatever feelings you have about this wants these guys to go free.

We don't owe it to you to show our indignation about something that no longer matters.

North Report, methinks you are scraping the bottom of your inventive barrel.

But who defended these three, North? Can you name on poster on babble who declared this conviciton an outrage, or whatever?

Bad form, dude.

martin dufresne

The key may be in the title. When one dismisses in advance people as "bleeding hearts" (even tongue in cheek), the game is already lost. I tend to use the word "liberals" pejoratively: that impedes dialogue and success breaking through lockjams.

The cell... was supposed to carry out what counter-terrorism officials say was an al-Qaida-inspired suicide mission, motivated by rage at British and US foreign policy.

So "officials" are acknowledging that this planned attack was intended as payback for British and US foreign policy.

So much for the theory that al-Qaeda is motivated by a desire to make us all wear burqas and pray in Arabic.

Coyote

That's true, martin. I try to avoid those kind of words, but I fail enough, too.

All right, all right, let me see if I can help North out here...

We're all forgetting Chapter 6 of Genesis:

Quote:
[5] And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

[6] And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

[7] And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

So, let's sum up:

1. God came to the conclusion that humanity (and indeed animal life) had sinned - they had gone evil.

2. God determined that the punishment for this evil must be genocide - the most complete genocide history has known.

3. God then used a quantity of liquid (more than 100 ml) to accomplish His murderous aims. As there was no intelligence agency conducting clandestine surveillance, He succeeded.

So, folks, before we go punishing these three fellows for merely attempting a much smaller-scale purification, let us calmly recall in Whose glorious footsteps they were treading.

Blessed be His name. Let us prey.

Ok, NorthReport, it's not exactly a bleeding-heart or leftist approach, but how'd I score? Huh?

 

 

Ken Burch

So North, any chance you'll admit you were baiting people here for no reason?

yarg

Like everone else I have no idea what prompted this post, but perhaps North is refering to the orgy of left wing guilt that seems to accompany every accusation made against a 'terrorist' or 'enemy combatant', lets face it, they aren't all good people who we're in the wrong place at the wrong time.  Neither does any alleged wrongs against thier race or nations excuse killing thousands of people who are no more in control of how the world works than they are.  Not being 'white' doesn't preclude them from being evil.

"bring xxxx home and set him free" etc, sure, if they are innocent.

George Victor

"...good people who we're in the wrong place at the wrong time."

The late Keith Waterhouse formed and presided over the Association for the Annihilation of the Aberrant Apostrophe to combat excessive use of the apostrophe, as in the large sign near Sevenoaks (an upscale community near Birmingham, I believe) that read BUSE'S ONLY.

Okay, so having read this thread I'm going to be closing it.

North Report, I'm really not sure what the point of this thread was supposed to be, but if it was meant as a taunt to babblers, I strongly suggest you not post similar-type topics in the future. It's called trolling.
