Non-knitterly, angry rant.

So much has been said about the tragedy in London already, but I feel I must say something. Screaming at the top of my lungs and cursing these madmen to the lowest recesses of hell hasn't helped. I've been so enraged that I've had to wait all this time to post anything remotely coherent - and at that I'm not entirely sure how coherent my thoughts are. My heart goes out to Londoners and to the other victims of terrorism in other parts of the world - Israel, Iraq, and the recent bombing in Spain as well. I've decided that the husband and I will go to London as soon as we have the time. Terrorist bombings are not "just desserts" for governmental actions and policies. (We don't ask to be bombed into little pieces; just like women don't ask to be raped.) These madmen do not care who they kill or how many they kill. They use whatever excuses handy to rationalize the murder of innocents. Terrorists attack civillians indiscriminately. The attack the weak and unarmed. They cut off the heads of bound victims. These are not honorable people and I don't particularly care to understand a culture of terror, violence, murder, and the subjugation and mutilation of women. You can have all the sympathy in the world for the plight of terrorists and can want to understand the why of terrorists, but in the end, you are still their enemy. If you don't agree with their ideology in any way, they will kill you. Terrorists don't care who they kill. This is why we can never negotiate with terrorists. And let's just be honest here, the majority of instances of terrorism nowadays are committed by Islamic extremists. Anyone who believes there was no connection between Iraq and Al Qaeda, or Iraq with other terrorist groups, needs to actually read the 9/11 commission report for themselves. It's a nonpartisan report and it spells it all out. See the movie "Dirty War." If that doesn't scare the shit out of you, nothing will. Oh, and while we're at it, let's quit calling the terrorists in Iraq "insurgents." Something like 9 out of 10 of terrorists in Iraq are foreign nationals. That's not an insurgency, that's an invasion. ***** Correction, I have not verified that figure; I'm still hunting the original info. In the meantime, click here for info on the demographics of Iraq's "insurgency." I say we let the Russian Mob take care of these monsters. You know what they do? They eliminate, one by one, each and every family member of the person they are after. If a suicide bomber is willing to give up his life not only for the glory, but for the money his family will receive upon his death, then maybe, just maybe, knowing his entire bloodline will be wiped off the face of the earth will act as a deterrent. It's barbaric, yes; it is also effective. And obviously barbarism is the only thing these terrorists understand. I told you I was angry.

What _exactly_ does the 9/11 commission say about how Iraq is linked to 9/11? Who has the "sympathy in the world for the plight of terrorists and can want to understand the why of terrorists"? No one is sympathetic to the plight of terrorists. We need more information if we are to agree with your point of view.
