More of This Sentiment, Please...

Tim Worstall responds to the London bombings:

" threaten us, try to kill us? Kill and injure some of us?

F**k you, sunshine.

We’ll not be having that.

If we had more of this attitude among all civilized people, terrorism would suffer a quick demise.

My fear is that, despite Worstall's hopes, not enough Brits will respond as needed. That is no knock on Brits in general. I think Al Queda or whoever is behind this is woefully ignorant of history if they view the Brits as faint-hearted and easily cowed. I just think that like the U.S., there is a sizable portion of the population who will shrink from reality and want to blame their own nation for the atrocities committed against them. For proof, see the twit Matt in Worstall's comments section.

Also, someone here at work, commenting on the assembled G8 leaders standing "united" behind Blair, calls it "impressive".

Yeah, well, I do not. Chirac for one is seem prominently over Blair's left shoulder, showing the reality of that "unity". It is one thing to stand behind a man at a podium, pledging support. It is another thing to actually DO something that matters a good goddam. Remember "We are All Americans"? Easy to say, alot harder to back up, especially when you don't mean it.

When French paratroopers start jumping into terrorist enclaves, screaming for jihadist blood, I will be impressed. Until then, spare me.

For now, my prayers are with the victims of London.
