British Terror Raids Net Nine

Ah, the British. It takes them awhile but sooner or later, they do something.

In a series of raids in several of Britain's biggest cities, police arrested nine people suspected of involvement in overseas terrorist operations.

I read somewhere that there is hundreds of jihadists hiding out in Britain. But nine, yeah nines good...I guess.

"We're not talking today about a direct threat to the U.K.," said Chief Constable Michael Todd of the Greater Manchester Police.
Oh, that talk's tomorrow I guess. So what are we discussing today Mike?

"We are talking about the facilitation of terrorism overseas. That could include funding, providing support and encouragement to terrorists."

I don't want to talk about that though. And you don't get the final say in what I talk about Mike.

Come on guys, America supported terrorism against Britain for years, the IRA remember, from the 70's onwards, ring any bells? I think you guys used to call them 'Freedom Fighters' back then, freedom fighters that used to nail bomb civilian targets (read women and children) with impunity and 'soft' military (read training establishments and bandsmen - surely their playing wasn't THAT bad).

Just consider this payback - it's not a direct threat on Britain so....fuck it, give them money and weapons, we don't care.

Well we do really, it does have a knock on effect to us too and you guys no longer sopport the IRA, no-one does anymore, we have a new, far reaching and global threat - McDonalds!! Oh and religious extremism (like the IRA, but affecting the USA too).

Forgive me for appearing cynical but it seems that the US only really accepted terrorism existed when it affected them directly, and then it's Hiroshima and Nagasaki style overkill all over again - and we're along for the ride. I don't blame America for lashing out, what happened was an atrocity, difference over here is, if your President bombs the shit out of a nation he gets away with it because much of the population, fuelled by blind patriotism, follow him. Over here we sit back a bit and think if what we're doing is legal, justified or right. We don't usually do 'tit-for-tat' or lower ourselves to the level of extremists. We do however send the SAS in to pick off selected targets, IRA, Gibraltar for example (and look at the shit we got into over that).

I'll shut up now, we take longer because we tend to avoid knee-jerk reactions, but when we act you'd better get out of the fucking way - even if you are just running from the cops because your visa has expired. Oops!!
