Thanks to Kiihnworld for posting about this letter today. There's not a single right thinking American who doesn't feel this same way right now. I wish I could say I'm shocked by today's London homicidal bombings. But we all knew it was going to happen, and it's going to happen again to one of us. Sorry to burst bubbles, but it's just the truth. It's still war-time, in spite of the fact I live my life like nothing is happening in the world. It's a lie. This war may not end in my lifetime, even if I make it to 90.
But what really frosts me is the way the main stream media in this country is describing the "terror" in the hearts of Londoners. Reports on how the citizens were terrorized, and how PM Tony Blair looked "shaken" when he first spoke publicly on the matter. Sorry journalists, but that look from Tony Blair was not of a man who was shaken, but of a man who was resolute. Hurting, yes, but shaken? Who writes this crap? And I have yet to see any of the townsfolk of the great London looking fearful or terrorized. Pissed off, oh, yes, definitely.
Which brings me to this writing from a Londonite. Ya gotta love it. I'm so tired of the bull shit from the anti-war crowd in this country,and in particular flying out of the mouth of my Senator, Dick Durbin. Just for the record, I have never voted for him. He is an embarrassment to me. And because he is from Illinois, my state should be embarrassed. We have brought shame to our country. So when I see a real man (or woman- who knows?) who has more balls (or whatever) than my Senator has money, I just have to include it on my blog.
Here it is, in all its glory:
"A Letter To The Terrorists, From London
A Letter To The Terrorists, From LondonJuly 07, 2005
This is London. We've dealt with your sort before. You don't try and pull this on us.
Do you have any idea how many times our city has been attacked? Whatever you're trying to do, it's not going to work.
All you've done is end some of our lives, and ruin some more. How is that going to help you? You don't get rewarded for this kind of crap.
And if, as your MO indicates, you're an al-Qaeda group, then you're out of your tiny minds.
Because if this is a message to Tony Blair, we've got news for you. We don't much like our government ourselves, or what they do in our name. But, listen very clearly. We'll deal with that ourselves. We're London, and we've got our own way of doing things, and it doesn't involve tossing bombs around where innocent people are going about their lives.
And that's because we're better than you. Everyone is better than you. Our city works. We rather like it. And we're going to go about our lives. We're going to take care of the lives you ruined. And then we're going to work. And we're going down the pub.So you can pack up your bombs, put them in your arseholes, and get the fuck out of our city."
