    British Housewife view on Terrorists

    Sums it up for me.😆

    Thought you might like to read this letter to the editor of a British national newspaper. Ever notice how some people just seem to know how to write a letter? Here is a woman who should run for Prime Minister!

    Written by a British housewife to her daily newspaper:


    'Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was it or was it
    not started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores
    in July 2002, and in New York Sept 11, 2001 and have

    continually threatened to do so since?

    Were people from all
    over the world, not brutally murdered that day in
    Washington , and in downtown Manhattan , and in a field in

    Pennsylvania ?

    Did nearly three
    thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning

    or crushing death that day, or didn't they?

    And I'm supposed to
    care that a few Taliban were claiming to be tortured by a
    justice system of the nation they come from and are
    fighting against in a brutal

    insurgency.

    I'll care about the
    Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East start caring
    about the Holy Bible, the mere belief of which is a crime

    punishable by beheading in Afghanistan .

    I'll care when these
    thugs tell the world they are sorry for hacking off Nick
    Berg's head while Berg screamed through his gurgling

    slashed throat.

    I'll care when the
    cowardly so-called 'insurgents' in Afghanistan come out
    and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own
    religion by hiding in mosques and behind women and

    children.

    I'll care when the
    mindless zealots who blow themselves up in search of
    Nirvana care about the innocent children within range of

    their suicide bombs.

    I'll care when the
    British media stops pretending that their freedom of
    speech on stories is more important than the lives of the
    soldiers on the ground or their families waiting at home

    to hear about them when something happens.

    In the meantime,
    when I hear a story about a British soldier roughing up an
    Insurgent terrorist to obtain information, know

    this:

    I don't

    care.

    When I see a wounded
    terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not to move
    because he might be booby-trapped, you can take this to

    the bank:

    I don't

    care.

    When I hear that a
    prisoner - who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and
    'fed special food' that is paid for by my taxes - is
    complaining that his holy book is being 'mishandled,' you
    can absolutely believe in your heart of

    hearts:

    I don't

    care.

    And oh, by the way,
    I've noticed that sometimes it's spelled 'Koran' and other
    times 'Quran..' Well, believe me!! you guessed it

    .............

    I don't

    care!!

    If you agree with
    this viewpoint, pass this on to all your E-mail friends.
    Sooner or later, it'll get to the people responsible for

    this ridiculous behaviour!

    If you don't agree,
    then by all means hit the delete button. Should you choose
    the latter, then please don't complain when more
    atrocities committed by radical Muslims happen here in our
    great country! And may I

    add:

    'Some people spend
    an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in

    the world. Our soldiers don't have that problem.'

    I have another quote
    that I would like to add, AND......... I hope you forward

    all this.

    Only six defining
    forces have ever offered to die for

    you:

    1. Jesus

    Christ

    2. The British

    Soldier.

    3. The Canadian

    Soldier.

    4. The US

    Soldier

    5. The New Zealand

    Soldier, and

    6. The Australian

    Soldier

    One died for your
    soul, the other 5 for your

    freedom.


    AMEN!

    Jesus was put on the cross by the Orthodox Jews not the Romans. He was no threat to Rome, but he was to the Jews.

    The various countries that backed the fight against the Soviets in Afghanistan did not create them, they did fund and support them but the already existed. This region has been a hotbed of unrest for many more centuries than the USA has been in existence due to it's position in a hub of different cultural, social, economic and religious regions. The various groups there have always garnered support from other nations, be they from Europe, Asia, Africa or elsewhere.

    The main reason for poverty in most of the regions you talk about is because of civil war which would happen with outside backing or without. Yes a certain amount is through backing of oil supplies.

All the mechanisms are in place, if the Nazis were to hyopthetically take over tomorrow in the UK or US, legally, they would feel right at home.
    That is exactly what the Second Amendment "Right to keep and bear arms" is all about. The whole idea is that if the government goes too nutty the population will have an effective comeback, and much of the military will side with the people as that is the source of the personnel for the military. It is a check put into the bill of rights to keep the elected government in line.

    Even ignoring the obvious "my religion is better than theirs" bits you would have to be ignorant of history to write or agree with the above letter. Here is the cartoon version to clarify it for those that missed out on an education.

    There is also the point that most of the people flying planes into buildings on 911 where Saudi and their radical version of Islam came from Saudi Arabia. Somehow the country is on the no bomb list and we run around bombing all the other unrelated countries instead.

    Thanks for the opportunity to read that R93, that lady certainly got her point across.

    Undoubtably Politics is a one third component of the trash bin, but in the interests of your intention this thread will remain long enough for everyone to have a read.
