Codders - the met were armed a long time ago- but not all of them ( 1930-1949)- as pertoday
It has nothing to do with my friends Bush and Blair- they only reacted to idiots smashing planes into buildings- they did not start it.
You must undrstand that when you go out to kill 3000+innocent people - the reaction is pretty predicable.So stop ranting on about Blair creating terroism - it realy shows a lack of intelligence or are we beginning to see the "real" codders. There is a war on friend and not many people realize it...
Britain always USED to have good relations with the Middle East - I should know having lived there. British people were treated with respect - the Yanks weren't.
One of these reasons is the blind support the USA gives Israel. Another is the sheer arrogance with which they treat other people.
Before Sept 11th you could walk into any Irish bar in New York and find an IRA collection box. The USA did not seem to mind the word terrorism and did not seem to care that British people were being blown to bits by the IRA.
The USA suffered a terrible blow with Sept 11th - a blow struck by Osama Bin Laden - Al Queda.
The USA was mortally wounded - what is more so was it's pride - a superpower rendered impotent. They had to lash out - get revenge.
Where does Iraq come into all this? You tell me! They had NOTHING to do with Al Queda and nothing to do with the Sept 11th attacks. The USA persued Osama and failed - they still needed to lash out so all of a sudden WMD become the main focus.
Becuase of Tony Blair's BLIND support of George Bush we have alienated the majority of Arabs and put ourselves in the same position as the USA - a position we did NOT need to be in!!!
The attacks in London seen recently have been as a direct result of this policy - the attacks were carried out in the NAME of Al Queda rather than BY Al Queda. Compared to what Britain had to face with the IRA these attacks have been very poorly organised - if they had PROPER backing they would NOT have been mucking about with home made explosives!!!
There is more fuss and hysteria being generated now than when the IRA were detonating 4 TON bombs!!!
