Anywho, I agree with you. We are being too polite to the extremist people, while holding a stricter line of order for the common folk.
The man burning the holy texts of a faith he knows nothing about is just as much of an extremist as the vest bombers on the other side of the
argument. All extremism is a disease,and extreme right wing white is right BS merchants, and Islamic fundamentalists are the same in my eyes, because
neither of them deserve to breathe my air, or use my resources if they cannot behave like they have brains in thier heads. Furthermore, here in the
British Isles (including Scotland, Ireland, Wales, and England, just so we are clear on where Im talking about) we should hold ourselves to higher
standards that we hold newcomers, and so we bloody well should. We should CERTAINLY hold ourselves to higher standards if we are to invade other
nations on a pretext of removing fundamentalist hate preachers and terrorists from the region!
Sadly, governments seem to be fearful of hurting the feelings of these Islamist extremists.
The war on terror began because George Bush was angry about the 9/11 attacks and wanted something to gut, mutilate and work out his stress on. The
9/11 attacks took the lives of (which is pretty much the sum of casualties on American soil from the terror war) supposedly between 2,990 something,
and close on 4,000 people. Im not trying to belittle the horror of that, but you have to accept that in comparison to the astronomical figures in the
hundreds of thousands of Muslims who have died since in the war on terror , the bigger proportion of which never fired a single round,nor bombed a
single road in defiance of the onslaught of the coallition forces on thier nations, I can definitely say that hurting the feelings of Islamic
extremists is not a concern any more. If thier feelings were going to get hurt, then having huge swathes of them blown of the face of the Earth, or
shot to ribbons from a helicopter, or rendered half way across the world and tortured for seven years would probably have done that. In comparison to
all that crap, I doubt riding them rough when they speak hate against the west is actualy going to bother them all that much.
Another thing to remember, is that before this war on terror, the number of terrorists was LOWER than it is now ! You know why ?Because this crazy
stupid pointless metaphysical phallus waving match of a war is gaining the terrorists more support from all over the globe every day ! And its no
wonder really, since lets face it, the US prefers mauling a street full of people with a minigun than taking one man out with one round, and the UK is
only there to do as its told , and avoid getting its nose stuck TOO far up the rear of the US command.
What I am saying is, you shouldnt complain when a British extremist, gets arrested for committing a crime, any more than you should complain when a
Yemeni, Afghanistani or Iraqi hate preacher gets arrested (which they frequently do). If you complain about that, thats pretty much you saying that
quite appart from anything else, you dont think that white folks can be extremist, and thats just plain silly. I know you are cleverer than that.
