Anarchists vs. Civilization


Daily Mail:

Three people and a terrorist are dead after an attacker brought carnage to central London today, mowing down pedestrians on Westminster Bridge and hacking at police with knives in the grounds of the Houses of Parliament.

At least 20 people were hit on the crowded bridge when a 4×4 drove along the pavement, knocking down pedestrians before crashing into a fence below Big Ben.
An intruder, described by a witness as ‘middle-aged and Asian’, then managed to break into the grounds of the Parliament where he fatally stabbed a police officer with two knives.

The policeman died at the scene. The attacker, who was shot by armed officers, died after he was taken to hospital.

It is currently believed one attacker was involved, killing three people, including the policeman, and leaving at least 20 pedestrians and three other police officers seriously injured.

In the UK, Asian of course usually means Pakistani or Indian. Regardless of the particular country or culture, I’m betting this one belongs to a global sect of enraged radical losers who kill people out of fundamentalist idiocy. Anarchists whose anger and violence are unjustified. Who have been treated well by civil society, but who still want to burn it down.

Oh, sure, he could be Lutheran. Or Unitarian. I’ll keep an open mind.

I hope the people of the UK are making difficult policy decisions based upon this sort of thing.  I won’t presume to tell them what those things might be. But…

Sticking one’s head in the bloody sand won’t work, mate. 

And in totally unrelated news:

Ankara (AFP) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned Wednesday that Europeans risk being unsafe on the world’s streets, as a crisis between Ankara and the EU showed no signs of abating.

“If you continue to behave like this, tomorrow in no part of the world, no European, no Westerner will be able to take steps on the street safely and peacefully,” Erdogan said during a speech in Ankara.

Erdogan did not expand on what he meant by his comments but appeared to imply that Europeans risked receiving the same treatment that, he says, is endured by Turks and Muslims in Europe.

    We need to end this right #&&_#!! now….

    Every time one of these douchenozzles do this, one MOAB needs to be dropped on a city of importance to Islam.

    We can start with where ISIS is hanging out, but eventually ramp it up to 11 and start targeting Mecca and Medina.

    You will run out of useful idiots before we run out of MOABs and JDAMS.

    After three straight years in the shitholes of Iraq and Afghanistan, I am #&$@-+_! DONE.

    You wanna play? Let’s play, m&-+#$f@$#!$s….

    If they were Japanese or Chinese they would have specified or at least included the modifier “East.” When it probably isn’t Muslim terrorists they make sure you know so they won’t be blamed. When it is Muslim terrorists, they don’t let you know so they won’t be blamed. Recognition of the cause of trouble is the only way you’ll ever solve it. But their partisanship is more important to them than their very lives. Particularly while they can still comfort themselves with the lie that the odds of trouble reaching them is less than getting truck by lightning. That is only true if you try to fix the problem.

    Erdogan should be reminded that there is no where in this country a cruise missile can’t reach. First in a polite and diplomatic manner. And if that doesn’t work. With a cruise missile.

    I am a firm believer that threats should be met with action. A strongly worded letter will never do anything unless the consequences of ignoring it are real and spectacular.

        Remember kids, as long as you treat the Lions with dignity and respect and let them know you’re no threat to them, they’re sure to return your kindness. They’ll even invite you to dinner.
