Globetrotter is right - you have to get the terrorist. I think that we in the UK have to lose a bit of the political correctness, too. Â 'Community leaders' are complaining in the media that it's not fair that young muslim men are stopped and searched, and the lefty brigade wring their hands about their rights. Â We need to be very clear with this section of the community; they will simply have to understand that until AQ starts recruiting elderly white Christian women, their young men are likely to be stopped. Â Those who support the terrorists and help to spread their hatred, such as the Al-Muhajiroun organisation, should be proscribed, prosecuted and deported - instead, their leaders live on welfare benefits, protected by lunatic legislation and preying on impressionable, badly-educated youths from unassimilated communities. Currently, the police and intelligence services in UK are warning that the bombers could try to target public transport again.
sorry, if middle aged jewish guys were blowing up subways, first I would be out there going on record saying there was no way to justify it, secondly I would be happy to submit to what ever searches and/or checks that were needed to make sure that I was't involved. all we do know about the terrorists is that they are relativly young muslim men. if this is the only thread, that is what we should pursue, and we should do what ever it takes, even if it may be a little unpleasant to some innocent people, to get to the source. what walter said about brining those responsible to justice - the answer is not to take the 5 or 10 people who put together te bombs and try to put them in a jail where they get 3 meals a day and a mosque for 20 years. what needs to be done is to find every body who was involved - in planing, in logisitics, in moral support, in finance, in training, etc, and kill them. anything short won't work. this isn't a civil law matter, this is war with "pirates" - with a non-territorial entity whose only reason for existance is to kill non-muslims. "allied" units should be killing around the clock - track down the people who have been giving money - kill them, track down the guy who let them stay in his house - kill him. track down the guy who tought them how to make bombs, kill them. and while they are at it, they should be looking for the people who could be planning the next jobs, and kill them, too. the people involved in this are not afraid of going to jail. we also can't focus on the ones who put the bombs together or actually pull the switch, because even death doens't scare them. we need to destroy any support they have, destroy their financial base, their support, etc.
