WORLD SHOCK AT COLD-BLOODED KID KILLINGS
New York Post ^ | 9/04/04 | Post Wire Services

Posted on 09/04/2004 12:12:56 AM PDT by kattracks

September 4, 2004 -- Tragic, despicable, inhumane, cowardly, barbaric, evil and astonishing — the deaths of a hundred or more people including children in a siege at a Russian school sparked strong words for the hostage-takers from world leaders. "This is yet another grim reminder of the lengths to which terrorists will go to threaten the civilized world," President Bush told a campaign rally in Wisconsin yesterday.

British Prime Minister Tony Blair wrote to Russian President Vladimir Putin, saying, "It is hard to express my revulsion at the inhumanity of terrorists prepared to put children and their parents through such suffering."

World leaders focused on support and solidarity for Russia.

"Killing of these innocent people is an evil, despicable act of barbarism. The fact that many of them appear to have been young children murdered in cold blood is simply horrible," said the president of the European Commission, Romano Prodi.

A commission statement said it "regrets that the hostage crisis could not be solved peacefully, but the blame cannot be put on anyone else but those who committed this heinous crime."

Chief Vatican spokesman Joaquin Navarro-Valls said news of the tragedy was received with sadness at the Vatican.

Bush is calling them terrorists. That's a start. Now if he could only utter the 'I' word.

The Islamo-demons shot a lot of these Russian kids in the back. Cowardice has been raised to a new level.

In the meantime:

"European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana on Friday criticized Israeli threats against Syria following the Be'er Sheva suicide bombings. "

I guess the EU wants to extend sympathy, but it doesn't want to anyone actually go after the terrorists.

I'm not shocked. Sad. Angry. Prayerful.

But not shocked. And I won't be shoked when it happens here.

I WILL be shocked when we take strong action against these islamofacists, illegal immigrants, etc.

How does one conduct ethnic cleansing --- that destroys only the lunatics among the Muslims?

It may not be possible...

I would suggest that the "moderate Muslims" clean house ---- before we are forced by self preservation to destroy the house.

Semper Fi

"...to put a VERY big hammer down, and he will."

Back in his KGB days, the "hammer" for something like this was not infrequently the liquidation of entire towns.

Kerry didn't even mention terrorism, never mind tell us what he plans to do about it, in his latest midnight speech " A New Course for America".

Apparently a new course would not include fighting terrorism.

LOTS OF DETAIL IN THIS LATEST REPORT

Russia School Standoff Ends With 250 Dead

Valery Andreyev, Russia's Federal Security Service chief in the region, said 10 Arabs were among 27 militants who were killed. The ITAR-Tass news agency, citing unidentified security sources, reported the hostage-taking was the work of Chechen warlord Shamil Basayev, who had al-Qaida backing.

---
Channel One TV reported three of the attackers were arrested after trying to escape in civilian dress. Four militants were believed to have escaped. A member of an elite security unit died saving two young girls, ITAR-Tass reported.

---
The bomb expert said the gym had been rigged with explosives packed in plastic bottles strung up around the room on a cord and stuffed with metal objects.

The libs have the balls to browbeat the Prez, but are terrified of terrorists. The terrorists have the balls to shoot little kids in the back, but boy do they run like rabbits when the men come to apply some "physical rehabilitation." P*ssies.

There's a few threads on it, here and here.

Amazingly, a few were calling for the carpet bombing of Chechnya. I'm sure they'll return to their SOP soon, though, and get back to blaming Bush.

That's not surprising. Acknowledging this atrocity may force some of them to actually take a long hard look at where their candidate stands on the issue of the WOT, and his plan (?) on how to defend the US.

BTW, has Kerry made an statement on what happened today?

Can we safely assume that "moderate Muslims" are anything but a type of sleeper? If this were a "religeon" of a few thousand, it would be called a cult and it would be stamped out. Because there are over a billion of them doesn't change what it is, a dangerous, murderous, treacherous cult. Eradicate it.

Why should the world be shocked? That stellar statesman, Yassar Arafat rose to power and worldwide acclaim by blowing up Israeli School buses. Children's body parts all over the place.

Yet he goes on to honor, respect, a priority for Presidents and wins a Nobel Peace Prize. What is wrong with this picture?

What, and condemn UNILATERALLY? Without consulting with our allies and friends at the UN? Might not be prudent...especially after reading the DU links provided by StoneFury. Effin' will have to nuance his reaction...scold the terrorists AND blame heavy-handed opposition to terrorists for making the "freedom fighters" do bad things.

Putin should exterminate most of this barbarian population and "repatriate" the rest to Siberia, there are still people in Russia who have experience in such enterprise.

One word wasn't used: unacceptable. Let me be the first to propose the un-politically correct solution to the most vexing problem facing the civilized world today, islamic terror. I propose the following: Excommunicate islam from the world's recognised religions. Period. Make the worship of islam or possession of the koran punishable by death. Destroy all vestiges of the killer cult, force conversion to other faiths, level their places of worship, and destroy those who defy. Some might find this drastic. It appears that way on the surface. Smacks of the nazi holocaust or something, but if you analyze it, it is the quickest, shortest, most straightforward route to moving into a peaceful 21'st century where minds aren't poisoned by the bedouin death-cult. Give Iran 48 hours to start dismantling their nuclear facilities or send them to hell at a million degrees. In fifty years we can make islam a thing only mentioned in history books like zoroastrianism.

It is not long past time for the world, and that means the world's governments to finally face facts.

The blame for what just happened in Russia, and for all the preceeding horrors of the WTC (both attacks), Nairobi, Khobar Towers, the Cole, Bali, and on, must be laid squarely at the feet of the Arabic states and the Muslim preachers of hate that inhabit them. The reluctance in these lands to silence these slimy purveyors of hate has been obvious for too long.

It has now become incumbent on us all civilized peoples to demand that these Mullahs, Imams, Shiekhs, and other assorted "nutbags of esteem" in their benighted lands are quieted forever.

It is now time for Muslims worldwide to understand that the desisre of the West to see Islam survive cannot be greater than their own. If the death-wish now so manifest in the Islamic world is not curbed by the Islamic world, it will not be incumbent on us, their victims, to insure a sweet outcome on their behalf. We would rather help them on their way.

It is time to bring the hammer down, people, and in so doing make Muslims everywhere fear us more than they fear the sociopathic death worshippers in their midst. Maybe then they will act.

It would be preferable that they act first of their own volition out of a sense of morality or even out of a desire to survive, but I fear that they secretly love and admire these murderers of children, and pray for their souls and for theri success.

If so, they are as craven as the murderers themselves.

Perhaps they think that in the coming war, they will prevail. They are wrong. When this war comes, we will not be able to wage war with the delicacy that we have shown in Iraq. It is up to the Musmlims now, whether they wish to live as civilized human beings, or die as pigs.

I DEMAND it. And I suggest that the entire civilzed world take a stand on this and DEMAND it; no more temporizing, no more excuses, no more politically correct BS.

Not a single additional act of terror anywhere in the world will be tolerated, and for every new act of terror in the face of our ultimatum, destruction 100 fold will be visited on the Muslims.

Moderate Muslims must be made to fear us more than they fear the murderous nutbags in their midst. Maybe then they will act.

They should listen to my wise advice and act now.

if they ever were going to do any serious house cleaning, it would have already been started in gigantically apparent proportions.

Thus far the USA and a coalition of the willing have had to do the trash disposal. When the muzzies start beheading terrorists in the center of their mosques and placing them on pikes, WE will believe they are actually taking out the trash on their own.

They have not.
So the job of sorting them all out, may in fact become God's perview only.

until the UMMAH rises up to kill the terrorists it supports with it's prayers, book of worship, finanaical aid and comfort... the UMMAH in it's entirety IS responsible.

their shock and dismay at this act, is only their fear that IVAN is going to fry mecca and medina... and level chechnya.

too little. too late.
