Irish America and ALL of America STAND WITH THE BRITISH.
Regardless of mine and other Irish American's feelings about the British role in Northern Ireland, this horrific attack must be condenmed by EVERYONE!

These Al Qaida dirtbags have made a big mistake, my Marine unit worked with British Royal Marines in Kosovo, and the British millitary is top notch. Al Qaida now has made a personal enemy of #1 and #2 millitaries in the world....and America will help ensure that the innocent civillains kiiled by these cowards PAY!!!

1. Don't think it's because
Bush, Blair and Rove are on the skids? Whenever things look bad for them something like this happens.

2. Have they figured out who did it yet?
All I heard was one organization claimed responsibility, but their grammar and ideological errors in their claim - along with the fact that nobody had heard of them yesterday - brought their credibility into question.

Seems awfully early for them to have done an investigation, is all.

3. Yeah, America will help ensure they pay all right...
Remember how Busholini was going to make Osama Bin Laden pay? You know, hunt him down, smoke him out, bring him to justice? You mean like that?

6. Have "they" stopped asking if it was the IRA yet?
Edited on Thu Jul-07-05 01:06 PM by seemslikeadream

8. Thank you
While I'm not a fan of the IRA, I never thought for a moment that this was anything to do with them, and I regard any post that tries to implicate them as very ignorant, if not disruptive.

By the way, you may want to check the grammar of your last sentence - it doesn't quite give out the correct message ;-)

11. So whom are you going to attack?

Syria, Iran, North Korea?

Such rhetoric is what emanates from politicians with their personal agenda.

Remember US and UK are at WAR and this may be part of the acceptable colateral danmage.

No?

Then what about those innocent Iraqi women and children?

In war innocents do die, don't they?

Oh, I understand, it must be restricted to areas where the people cannot fight back.

I think that is what is called bullying and cowardice.

12. If it was al-Qaida, the British might actually get bin Laden!
we really don't know yet, all we have to go on is a few postings on websites from splinter groups; but if it was al-Qaida, the British won't be giving them a free pass as certain other superpowers appear to have done :grr:

18. Ahem.... The "#1 and #2 militaries in the world" haven't been able
to wipe out AQ yet, and I have to assume they've been trying pretty hard all along.

Why do you think this is going to change that?

This doesn't mean I don't feel outrage, etc about the bombings; sympathy for the British and so on; it doesn't mean I wouldn't wax the bombers myself given the chance; I'm just pointing out that your conclusion is probably incorrect.

19. No Offense.......
But do you seriously think all of Irish America stands with the British? You obviously are not aware that a lot of money comes out of Irish America to finance the IRA....now it's not a day to dwell on that since it's another issue but the irony doesn't escape me.

20. The bloated military can't even handle Iraq let alone find someone.
As for the "top notch" Brit military they've had a shot at the IRA for decades and have failed.

This is a police matter, as was 9/11, and should be handled that way.

Sending the military in to kill people willy-nilly hasn't proved very effective in ending terrorism.
