I show a scanned sector of today’s Sunday Times:-
Now I can understand the imperative: ‘We must be seen to be strong, to do something; we must show we are willing to kill!’; but the query must and should be posed; ‘Why are politicians keen to have the rifles and Heckler&Koch carbines fired now, and why not when the IRA was busy killing British soldiers on the streets of Belfast, when IRA/SinnFein were planning the murders of British subjects whose only crime was that they worshipped a different form of a Christian God? ‘
Just think of that last sentence, if you will. The alleged Catholic leaders of a Catholic terrorist army planned to mutilate, maim and kill Church of England Protestants because they were simply Protestants, and Loyalists. Sounds just like the Muslim Ideal to me!
My brother served, as an ordinary Army squaddie, on the streets, cess-pits and shit-holes which formed the majority of the Catholic areas of Belfast. His friend were shot in front of him, his mate was killed as he walked behind my brother; but, before a single round was fired in reply to the murderous sniper fire, a yellow card had to be shown, a DISCUSSION was imperative with higher ranked officers, safe and snug behind their barbed wire and concrete walls in their fortified base areas, and THEN a warning shot had to be fired OVER THE TARGET AREA.
I do so hope that when a British rifle is aimed at one of these MUSLIM scum, the holder has the simple guts to aim for ‘full body mass’, as I was taught to do; so as to ensure that the bastard goes down; and STAYS DOWN!
