Terror in London

Many people are covering the latest horror, including Instapundit, the BBC, The Belmont Club. P.M. Blair says that it is "reasonably clear" that terrorists are behind the attack. He sounded steadfast. According to Der Spiegel, al Qaeda is claiming responsibility. There is a map of where the attacks took place in London at this site (three cliks down). CNN International has a minute by minute account of the explosions.

This is apalling. I am sick - my friends, many of them, live and work in the City and parts nearbye. I am sick about this.

Americans, look and see the effect of open and unrestricted immigration. London has the largest mosque in Europe, and neighbourhoods with mosques that openly recruit jihadis without fear of serious consequences. The British government has absolutely no idea who is in the country at any given time, and has lost the will to eject bad elements. In fact, many Labour and Liberal Democrat MP’s cater to Muslim fanatics - censorship is being introduced in Commons so Islam cannot be criticised, and in the last election some London MP’s introduced antisemetism into their campaigns to pander to militant Islamicic voters. Now innocent commuters suffer at the hands of evil fanatics. Horror

WM is completely correct. It’s time we give the Islamicics the boot!! I say we send Louis Farrakan back to where he came from too!

Aren’t you clever? you found a typo...

Ken Livingstone, the mayor of London had this to say: "That isn’t an ideology, it isn’t even a perverted faith, it’s mass murder. We know what the objective is. They seek to divide London."

Seeking to divide the allies of the "Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime--Pol Pot or others--that had no concern for human beings" cannot necessarily be a bad thing, can it?

Marc Lamb - what the hell are you talking about??

Um, the U.S. is like the "Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime--Pol Pot or others--that had no concern for human beings." Britain is a current ally of the U.S. Ergo, "insurgents" attacking an ally of the Nazis, er, the U.S. is obviously something Senator Dick Durbin would believe is a good thing.

Got it, now?

Um, frankly, no. Durbin’s remarks, however one might feel about them, were NOT about the U.S. as a whole, but about the behavior of those at the Guantanamo prison... You stretched that one well past the point of snapping.

Certainly you cannot blame these "insurgents" for attacking and seeking to divide America’s allies, in light of Senator Durbin’s charges, can you, Mr. Stone? Given what their brothers are suffering at the hands of their Nazi-like captors you would certainly expect them to strike back likewise, in the most brutal manner.

Hold your horses, WM. I just accidentaly repeated your misspelling. No ill will, okay?

Marc, I’m still not following you here. So you’re saying that Durbin is probably taking great joy in all of this? Please clarify.

First, the post at 3:17 was not written by me. I will watermark my posts with my email address from now on.

Secondly, wouldn’t you have been rejoicing at every "insurgent" attack on the Nazis? Do you think you would have been saddened at the failure of the Prague Spring? Or the triumph of Pol Pot?

If Durbin meant what he said, then yes, he is rejoicing today. Perhaps Bush and his henchmen will finally come to their senses and stop this war, stop the torture of "insurgents," and stop making these people so mad at us.

If Durbin meant what he said, then yes, he is rejoicing today.

OK Marc, that’s definitely libel. It’s also clear proof that you have no understanding of what Durbin said. We’re all just keep going over the same few lines, over and over again, but once more: Durbin did not say this: "America is just like the Nazis." He did say, essentially, this: "If I told you these acts were committed by American soldiers, you would be shocked because it sounds like something that Nazis would have done."

That may be drastic, but that’s not really the point here. The point is that he DID not say America is a Nazi country or is as bad as Nazis were. To believe that is just absurd. Furthermore, he clearly doesn’t believe that ALL Americans and ALL its allies are bad people, just those who were the subject of that FBI memo.

I promise you right-wing nuts that the vast majority of us on the left are NOT rejoicing about the events in London, OK? Will you ever quit with the nasty, baseless accusations and slanderous/libelous comments? It’s just obnoxious.

OK, I see the Batman thread is starting to die down, but howzabout War of the Worlds? Pretty awesome, huh? Anyone else get ’er seen yet? I recommend it!!

I promise you right-wing nuts that the vast majority of us on the left are NOT rejoicing about the events in London, OK? Will you ever quit with the nasty, baseless accusations and slanderous/libelous comments?

Funny, I didn’t hear one peep of protest from your side for Durbin’s nasty, baseless accusations and slanderous/libelous comments. I hear only excuses that it was somebody else’s fault for repeating what he said. You left-wing cranks have had it both ways long enough. Your ability to spin your way out of your anti-American bottle ain’t workin’ no more, Mr. Thompson. So long as your cheers are silent, we are free to amplify every word Durbin and your ilk utter.

Ok, Marc, how about this - I think that Durbin’s essential point, that the actions of Americans at Gitmo have been despicable and too similar to some of our past enemies, was basically truthful. I think Durbin was weak and cowardly for apologizing for having said it. He said nothing worth protesting.

Also, the Brits don’t run Gitmo. And your logical jumps are just nuts about how anyone is, would be, or should be rejoicing over these attacks.

So, I think Durbin’s remarks were essentially accurate, and that he shouldn’t have apologized. I’m NOT anti-American, and I’m NOT the least bit happy about the attacks. They were absolutely horrible. Instead of getting all of your ideas about liberals from Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh and this blog, why don’t you actually talk with a liberal or two over your favorite beverage??

No, Phil and his pals absolutely LOVE Amerika...particularly when it’s a victim (e.g., all that sympathy we got after 9/11...which evaporated once we went looking for payback). Now they will feel sorry for the Brits...until they hit back.

I also want to echo was "wm" said...we have to be much MUCH more selective about immigration...and I don’t give a flying flip whether some Leftist thinks that’s racist...just doesn’t matter to me. I’d rather be alive than "politically pure" and dead.

Ok, Marc, how about this - I think that Durbin’s essential point... was basically truthful. I think Durbin was weak and cowardly for apologizing for having said it. He said nothing worth protesting.

Now, was that really so doggone hard to admit? I wish more liberals would standup like this be honest about how they really feel. Today George Galloway, it was his district that was bombed today, stood up and told his fellow Brits who is really to blame for these London bombings and it wasn’t al Qaeda...

It was Tony Blair who’s to blame, one of Bush’s henchmen.

Come on, libs, be more like Kim and George, and be honest with us.

Right now I’m absolutely certain that Michael Moore, Dick Durbin and all the other looney libs are out there toasting al Qaeda for a job well done. I think we should seriously consider expandingGitmo instead of closing it. That way we’d have room for all of the seditious liberals that I believe should spend some time thinking about whether or not they REALLY love America as much as they keep insisting they do. You wack-jobs on the left need to be taught how to appreciate what you have, and spending a few years in Gitmo might be just the trick!

Marc, this post is just insane. Way to go for having the nuttiest comment of the day!

Dear Peter Schramm:

It makes no sense for me to bother to post here under the condition that anyone can assume my identity and post nonsense in my name. Until such time I can feel reasonably assured this can be corrected, I’ll bug out and just visit and read.

Thanks, The real Marc S. Lamb

Wait, so Marc, you’re saying comment 18 was NOT posted by you? Please clarify, because that one is really out there and I would hope that it’s some kind of joke.

Wait, so Marc, you’re saying comment 18 was NOT posted by you?

Correct. Unfortunately it doesn’t matter. For the time being, at least.

Bye.
