So, terrorist attacks on presidents, prime ministers, and other people of might and power are justified?
At least they'd be more political and less cowardly (it ain't easy getting through secret service, body guards, snipers, etc).
Heh heh - that's what I noticed, too. "You stupid mooselimbs ... don't you know this is a CLASS WAR?"
Well, no. But it's the "ordinary working-class Londoners" that he's counting on to keep his sorry backside in office.
translation polish-english thank you"My2Cents"thank you all
"Listen and listen well all of you; today attack has demonstrated what has been long forgotten by those people who decides what is plus or minus might sound well according to their political ideas; these ideas is poisons and self-destructive = policy of appeasement would not work. All of us are at war; wake up all of you: don't you see where this is going: either people wake up or they will have their enemy in their houses. Neither politician care about you, all they care is their selfish ego; their own goal. Today's world has been replaced by people who have forgotten whom their ancestors fought fore. They have forgotten about God and goodness. Selfish and self absorb they continue to have their hands being boil on innocent blood. Today war has begun, how it will be won is up to those who know where to make check mate."Thank you all be strong good America persons.
I wouldn't shed too many tears if the terrorists had targeted the mighty and powerful Major of London...
Being a former liberal myself, I think I understand Livingstone. And through the eyes of liberals, he's in trouble with them too.
He's not saying that attacking a Prime Minister is OK. What he's saying is that attacking Joe Shmoe on the street is particularly sick. The Prime Minister deploys troops, making him essentially a military target, at least in liberal-think.
Certain wealthy businessmen who support the Prime Minister are also the equivilent of volunteer soldiers.
Those targets would be slightly 'less dishonorable', while you can bet that Livingstone would condemn attacks on them as well. That's liberal-think.
But even a liberal would feel sick knowing that Livingstone was an apologist for anyone who called for this kind of attack:
"Yet Livingstone has in the past labeled Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi a "man of peace" and a "moderate" despite the fact that Al-Qaradawi has supported suicide bombings and the targeting of American allies."
Livingstone must announce that he's seen the light now. On the other hand, if London is as stupid as most NY voters, then it won't matter much.
Well, socialist mayors...
