over turning the terrorist loose. Which has generated both support and, ah, let's call it 'unhappiness':
NOTE: While most emails have thus far been very supportive, whether they be from Americans, British citizens, and many others, there have been a few British and Scottish individuals who have sent threatening and extremely defamatory messages towards American relatives and friends of the Lockerbie victims.
First, anybody over there who's sending crap to the families of the murdered? Screw you, you're a sucky example of a human being.
Lest there be any doubt, this boycott is not aimed against the people of Scotland or the United Kingdom, but against the governments of Scotland and Britain. The unfortunate reality is that initiating boycotts against the tourism, banking, and oil industries of a particular country are necessary in order to force that government to listen and understand and admit their error.
Actually, it IS aimed at the people of those countries; because they're the ones who put those politicians in office.
If they're yelling "Don't blame us!", that's kind of like people in Massachusetts saying "Don't blame us for what Barney Frank did, it's hurting us too!" Well, yes it is; so why did you reelect him, you bastards? You put the clowns in office, so you have some responsibility for what they do.
I'm undecided on the boycott, but I have to say I'm leaning toward it. Near the angle of repose...
