So my two cents on this “Terror” in the UK and terrorism May 26, 2013

I understand that this sucks, these two guys run over a British soldier, hack him up and then have locals film their confession so it can be aired on TV. It is a terrible thing and I do not condone that action whatsoever. On the other hand I have to believe that it is what most historians 500 years from now will view as a retaliation! Here is my line of thinking, when one group of individuals constantly attacks another group, in this case its the Western world attacking the middle east, and it has been going on for a lot longer than this silly “war” on terror, then the other side will attack back at some point. Whats the difference between this attack or even the World Trade Center attack on 9-11 and a drone strike that destroys a school full of children? Yet we call it terror when we are attacked and we call it a tactical strike when we destroy a building with 30 innocent people and 1 “terror target”. Get used to it people, it is not terrorism, it is retaliation and we brought everything upon ourselves by letting our elected officials get away with murder for so long. Look at the two pictures below and tell me which one looks more like terror? To me I say the drone unleashing missiles is a hell of a lot scarier, so before you go cry terror, look at it from outside your own little comfort zone.

  1. I agree with your views however it disgusts me that the attackers brought the subject of religion into it and further dirtied the name and image of Islam. this “retaliation” should have been kept political and shouldn’t have been religious.

    would love it if you had a read at my stance on this situation:

    • The other side of it though is people like George Bush saying god talks to him and that religion is part of his foriegn policy… the same foriegn policy that allowed him to invade Iraq for no reason. I will check out your post now.
