I have just seen a Sydney Muslim leader on ch9 being interviewed on Australian Muslims’ reactions to the sending of troops to Afghanistan. He had several valid points and one puzzling one, but the one thing I would agree with him on 100% was the actions of Tony Blair. Blair has been running around spouting rhetoric about fighting terror etc., and yet he has the most notorious terrorist organization in the world in his own backyard. The question is once they have finished with al-Queda and bin Laden, what are they going to do about other organizations?
The current attacks in Afghanistan are a necessity to reply to the WTC tragedy, but they must carry it on. They have momentum, now they should finish the job.
I hope they show the IRA, its splinter groups and supporters the same mercy they show the hapless Afghans.
Lets see how easy it is carry out ‘justice’ on one’s own people.
I have always been in favour of Decimation in regard to Ireland. (Decimation is the ancient Roman practice of selecting one person in ten randomly and executing them. So for every British person killed by the IRA or sympathisers, ten catholic Irish should be selected at random from a group of 100 and executed).
And further to this, the IRA has long been supported by huge cash donations from extremely wealthy Americans. Will Bush hunt these people down and either execute (we should be so lucky) or imprison indefinitely these scum?
Lets hope this current situation is indeed a war on terrorism, and NOT one solely on Muslim terrorists.
