On in Army now, and I remember two great-uncles who served in WWII; one in the Pacific, one in Europe.
I'm going to try to watch some of Band of Brothers later; if nothing else the Why we fight episode.
Which does lead me to the one other thing I want to say today:
Britain is a shining example of losing everything fought and bled for.
Media timidity in the face of these obvious declarations is matched by equally feeble responses from the political classes. Richard Barrett, a
former United Nations co-ordinator for the al-Qaida and Taliban
monitoring team, offered this insight following yesterday’s brutality:
“The idea that this may be terrorism inspired by some sort of religious
extremist belief is quite plausible.”
Quite plausible, old chap? Quite plausible, you say? Well, let’s not
jump to any conclusions simply because some Koran-quoting maniac
carrying two bloody knives has just cut off a man’s head. Maybe he had
trouble at home.
Open attacks and murders by muslims, who insist on saying that's exactly why they're doing this, and the Brit media and politicians, overall, don't have the balls to say something about exactly that. Oh no, excuses and weasel-words abound.
And we've got a bumper crop of the same level idiots here, and they're just as much in a rush to hand over everything to the enemy in the name of 'tolerance' and 'being sensitive to the beliefs of others'.
I'm sure some clown will run across this and trumpet it as "SEE, THEY HATE MUSLIMS!", so- assuming such will bother to read this far- no, all muslims are not the enemy; SOME are, and they number in the millions. And they want us dead, converted or dhimmi. And ignoring that, ignoring the religious reasons behind their actions, is stupid. And downright suicidal.
