Presumably the Turks know we didn't do it.

Another FReeper made a very good observation about the bombing in Egypt - he(she?) said that AQ and its minions may be trying to give the impression that anarchy is breaking out.

In other words, stable societies and governments are incapable of protecting their citizens, and it's every man for himself - and hence, easier for the wolves of Islam to pick off.

Did Turkey invade Iraq?

European and American leftists have been blaming the invasion of Iraq for 9/11 and the 7/7 London bombings and just about every other actions perpetrated by terrorists. According to nitwits on the left, the islamofascists are perpetrating the attacks because Mr. Bush
and Mr. Blair have "meddled" in Iraq by liberating Iraqi citizens and assisting them in founding a democratic govenment. But...as a matter of fact, Egypt never invaded Iraq - so why did this happen to them?
And why was Bali bombed? That loud thud you just heard was the left's excuse for terrorism collapsing under its own weight.

The flip side is that citizens are free to form vigilante gangs, unrestrained by government and PC considerations. Mosques now are protected by the government. Hurt enough people's families and that protection will fade. It will make for a nightmarish, crime-ridden society, but eventually numbers will prevail.

Wait, Egypt and Turkey opposed the Iraq war...and no terrorism existed before the Iraq war.

Oh lots of laughs on that one.
This is very sad news. They seem to see this as the time to strike all around the world. Forget about talk of poor and oppressed. There is another motivation behind all of this activity.

Turkey has allowed the Americans to use their territory to hit Saddam Hussein. I believe that this is the action of Hussein loyalists.

Do you realise that this coincides with Saddam Hussein coming to trial?

That would explain the attempted bombing in London a week after 7/7. A second attack so close to the first is not the usual pattern.

May be so. Note the most recent acts have been inside secular states. They have been trying to create Islamic states everywhere, trying to recreate their spectacular success of a thousand years ago. They are doomed to failure if history is any guide. Failed revolutions never find the same circumstances again and just fizzle. Ask Saddam how his new Babylonian Empire is coming. Too late to ask Mussolini how the new Roman Empire did.

The best thing to do would be to get our governments to protect our modern states, since the modern state, in general, functions fairly well as a space for personal liberties. A violent, anarchistic society means that we will spend all of our time defending ourselves, which has been the situation at other times in the past and has never lead to prosperous or creative societies.

I hope our states will wake up to the fact that Islam is, in many ways, a worse threat than Communism. The latter was vicious and dangerous but had at least a theoretically rationally basis (although Communism is really just an act of faith, deep down inside), while Islam has many more adherents and has no rational pretense whatsoever.

That was what I thought, too. I wonder if some sort of "go ahead" has been given. I read that Zarqawi had announced that Iraq was a waste of time for AQ and he was turning his attention elsewhere, so perhaps this is part of it.

Bomb at Turkish cafe injures at least two

Copyright © 2005 AP Online This story was published Saturday, July 23rd, 2005

The Associated Press

ISTANBUL, Turkey (AP) - A bomb exploded Saturday at an Istanbul cafe frequented by both Turks and foreign tourists, injuring at least two people, police said.

The blast, which police said was caused by either a remote controlled bomb or a bomb on a timer, occurred at a cafe at the bottom of the Galata bridge.

Not to mention the Thousand-Year Reich (oops; they didn't even make 1000 weeks).

That depends where in Boston. I wouldn't be upset if it happened in a small Beacon Hill townhouse or if a bloviating whale set himself on fire from too much scotch and an illegal Cuban cigar.

No, for me it's much better in an Islamic country than on my front porch, and I hope our leaders ensure that it stays that way.
