you had to be there!

By ATWadmin On March 14th, 2007 at 10:43 am

I flew down to London yesterday, for a very brief visit with my elder brother; returning the same evening. Now some may cavil at my decision to increase my ‘Carbon Footprint’ by the amount of CO2 from the twin-engine jet upon which I travelled, but since I personally do not believe any of the piles of garbage spewed from the ‘Green and Mean’ lobby about global warming, you may be unsurprised by the fact that I enjoyed the whole trip! Well, maybe not the whole trip, just most of it!

The bit which got me truly riled and angry was the wait, in a very large queue, at the Departure Security barriers at Terminal One, Heathrow Airport! There we stood, or rather there we all shuffled along, as the determinedly stolid security crew waved the waiting hordes forward into one of four lines aimed at the x-ray machinery set up to scan the luggage-mobiles-computers-jackets-coats of the prospective airline passengers! We also waited in line to be waved through the metal detectors to display that we collectively carried no weaponry, or grenades, or knives, or indeed any items which could feasibly be turned against the crew of the aircraft we all wished to board. Reluctantly, and I do mean RELUCTANTLY, I have to accept that these precautions are necessary, but there I would depart from the ‘herd’ mentality which has pervaded our mass transit establishments. I do not believe that it was necessary to have us all TAKE ALL OUR SHOES OFF,  and also have them x-rayed as we passed through the scanner and detector. I might have a beard, but my skin colour is white, not brown or black; along with the overwhelming majority of my fellow passengers!  My name is not Richard Reid!

With almost no exceptions, the bastards who have either succeeded or attempted to blow themselves sky-high are Muslim by religion, and brown or black in colour! Why are the majority of travellers humped together in this Kafka-esque nightmare of suspicion, just because our lily-livered Government refuses to do things without reference to the Equal Opportunities Commission, or the Commission for Equality and Human Rights (CEHR), or any organisation which has ever employed Trevor Phillips? The IRA killers, who supplied more than their fair share of the carnage of the ’70’s and 80’s, were making a bloody and detemined statement, but they drew the line at killing themselves along with their victims, except where the few ‘own goals’ redistributed their body parts across the landscape!

The cherry on the cake of stupidity and political correctness, however, was supplied by the inanely-grinning female figure, dressed all in black combat trousers, black jacket, black hijab or scarf or whatever the bloody thing is called wrapped around her silly head, who was the only person who would really raise my suspicions,

It’s reported that America is stepping up its hunt for Osama bin Laden by dispatching additional CIA operatives and paramilitary officers to Pakistan to kill or capture the al-Qa’eda leader.

US officials said that the mission is intended to intensify the pressure on the terrorist leader, who turns 50 tomorrow, and perhaps force him into making a mistake. He is widely believed to be hiding in the region bordering Afghanistan. Satellite photographs and details of communications intercepts were given to President Musharraf of Pakistan last week by Stephen Kappes, deputy director of the CIA, as part of a strategy to persuade him to give US intelligence agencies more assistance.

But is Bin Laden already dead? There has been NO video evidence from him that is clearly post the 9/11 invasion of Afghanistan. Has a well aimed daisy-cutter or two already despatched him to eternity? Why so shy, Ossie?

And here’s another question for our more liberal-minded US readers. Do you think that IF OBL is alive, and manages to keep that way for let’s say another 10 years, at that point it would be fair enough for OBL to enter the Afghanistan or Pakistan government, if duly elected? After all, SOME say we need to dismiss the past if we are to move into the future. Time to put the footage of 9/11 away? What say you?

A King Amongst Princes

By ATWadmin On February 22nd, 2007 at 5:10 pm

Prince Harry is third in line to the Throne.  His service in Iraq will make him a prime target for every low-life Islamist who crawls in the Iraqi wilderness.  Despite all of the dangers, Prince Harry set his heart on fighting as a soldier for his country.  He will be the first Royal to work in front line service since Prince Andrew’s foray to the Falkland Islands 25 years ago.  Harry said:

‘There’s no way I’m going to put myself through Sandhurst and then sit on my arse back home while my boys are out fighting for their country.’

Blunt he may be.  He has also done a few foolish things during his adolescence (didn’t we all!?  Show me a man who never made a mistake and I’ll show you a Zambian chiropodist with a sense of humour).  However, his dedication to duty is admirable in these days of relative indolence and societal selfishness.

There are people who say Harry shouldn’t be in combat in Iraq.  Why not, if that’s what he has his heart set on doing?   He is fighting as a soldier in the finest army anywhere in the world: an army that has done proportionately more (with the exception of the US) to keep global peace and security than any other.  There are times when I have my disappointments at the state of modern Britain and the antics of some in our Royal Family.  Reading about Prince Harry helps to renew my faith in the calibre of both.

All these years after 9/11, some people seem surprised when I state that I remain 100%  in favour of the war on Islamic terror. I know that people like me are caricatured as war-mongers, enemies of peace, and plunderers of foreign nations by a gutless MSM. Plus ca change.

Here’s the deal folks. We are at war against a global enemy – militant Islam. They seek to kill us, to subvert our liberal democracies, to force us to accept their dark ages barbarism – their shar’ia law. They have had limited success so far – but they have a few aces up their sleeves.

1. They know our MSM can be used to ensure that they achieve propaganda victory,

2. They know a few well-aimed bombings in our capital cities can gain them huge advantages.

3. They know liberal want to "understand them". Those of us who want to see them either imprisoned or better still despatched to Allah are increasingly being marginalised by our appeasement minded colleagues.

So it comes as NO SURPRISE to read that Senior leaders of Al Queda operating from Pakistan have re-established significant control over their once-battered worldwide terror network and over the past year have set up a band of training camps in the tribal regions near the Afghan border, according to American intelligence and counterterrorism officials. American officials said there was mounting evidence that Bin Laden and his deputy, Zawahri had been steadily building an operations hub in the mountainous Pakistani tribal area of North Waziristan.

What we need to do is to move with overwhelming military force against North Waziristan – the new AQ base. Pakistan is a faux friend in this scenario. If we don’t then AQ will eventually come for us, again. Surely this is a no-brainer? Those Democrats in the States who urge surrender and withdrawal are fooling themselves. In a war, if you are not winning, you are losing. AQ understand this – do we? If our leaders choose defeat, if they seek to sue for surrender – let them be open about it. Al Queda are clear about their evil agenda.

I note that twenty-nine terror suspects are going on trial in the Spanish capital, Madrid, over the March 2004 train bombings that killed 191 people. Seven of the suspects – who are mostly Moroccan and all of which as Muslims – will face charges of murder and belonging to a terrorist group. The others face charges including collaborating with a terrorist group and handling explosives. More than 1,700 people were injured in the multiple bomb attacks, which targeted four rush-hour trains.

I hope they are all duly convicted and sent away for the rest of their lives as punishment for the heinous crimes they have allegedly committed.

But there is another set of people who should be held responsible and that is those Spaniards who caved in to the demands of Al Queda in the immediate aftermath of the terrible train bombings and voted for the cowardly socialists led by Zapatero. Spanish troops were instantly pulled out of Iraq – so meeting a key Al Queda demand. Those like Zapatero think they can buy off the Jihad boys, but they can’t. Readers will recall that Osama has not forgotten "the tragedy of Andalusia" and only when the lands of Spain are returned to Islam can they be any lasting "peace".

It’s fitting we reflect on the grievous deaths that occurred on the Madrid rail network – but we should also reflect on the catastrophic failure of those Spanish cowards who caved!

I think it says it all about the perverted values of our Government that it puts the lives of SAS soldiers at risk so that they can extricate four terror suspects from likely execution overseas. Naturally, the four alleged Jihadists were released on to Britain’s streets hours after being rescued by the Government. 

The four, who are British citizens of North-African origin in their twenties, were seized on the Kenyan border with Somalia by special forces – possibly the SAS, who are known to be operating in the area. They were reportedly trying to escape from Somalia where they were suspected of fighting in a Jihadi struggle with terrorists linked to Al Qaeda.

Get that? Four Britains – (Muslims naturally) – fighting Jihad overseas! And what to do we do when the lawful forces that they are waging Jihad against capture them? Yes- spring ’em from captivity, whisk them back to freedom and liberty in good old Blighty. Unbelievable.

Sooner, rather than later, these emboldened Jihadists will strike again in the UK, and our Government will ONLY have itself to blame for the ensuing carnage. It actually now IMPORTS Jihadists – rather than permit foreign Governments to deal with them! How we can win a war on terror when our Government colludes with the terrorists????

begg.jpgA few months ago, I took part in a BBC Radio debate with ex-Guantanamo Bay terrorist detainee Moazzam Begg. Amnesty International were his minders on the day, as I recall. Maybe they thought I was gonning to water-board him?

Mr Begg was treated with the gentlest of kid gloves during the interview – even as he made all kinds of faux allegations regarding the treatment handed out to inmates at Gitmo. 

Since Tony Blair used his leverage to get Begg out of Gitmo, Begg has gone round the world, spouting his accusations against the USA, and being hailed as one of the good guys by the liberal MSM.

When I asked him directly on-air if he supported Jihad and would condemn those who pursue it -he failed to answer.  Quelle Surprise!

So, against this background, I read this nonsense in the Independent today. Note the tone is set in the second sentence with the use of parenthesis in describing the war on terror. You see, as I argued on my VLOG yesterday, the MSM does not believe we are at war. Instead it just hates America!

Int this article, Mr Begg is portrayed as a brave man who has been psychologically scarred by those bad Americans at Gitmo, but yet a man whose noble spirit prevails. It’s sickening stuff – with no hard questions asked of him at all. 

And all the time – Moazzem cannot condemn Jihad. Nor can he cannot satisfactorily explain WHY he was in Pakistan/Afghanistan when captured by US forces. The wrong man in the wrong place at the wrong time -or a Islamist terrorist bang to rights? I happen to think that US forces got their man. I think the British Government foolishly trolled to free him from justice, and the MSM has subsequently canonised him.

Why nowadays he even signs autographs for admirers in restaurants…!

Big brother

By ATWadmin On January 24th, 2007 at 1:26 pm

The United Kingdom leads the world in the deployment of Closed Circuit Tele Vision camera technology. The UK has one camera for every 14 people. Surveillance of public areas in the United Kingdom by CCTV was developed partly in response to IRA terrorism. It started then and continues now the debate about the extent to which these powerful technologies are being applied in the UK and about the erosion of our liberties in the fight against terror.

Each recent successive New Labour Home Secretary with the support of Prime Minister Tony Blair, has been accused of destroying, bit by bit, our long held liberties and freedoms. They are accused of creating a ‘Climate of Fear’ which is playing into the hands of terrorists. Watching the CCTV footage of the incidents of July 21 and the incredibly brave Angus Campbell (who stopped to help a mum and child and then challenged the guy) and the individuals who pursued Mohammed amidst such confusion that day, illustrates that this fear is justified.

(I’d also like to suggest that just as Jade is held up as an ‘example’ of Britons so most definitely can Mr Campbell, Mr Brawley, Mr Burton-Garnett and the other brave individuals who gave chase).

No-one now could reasonably argue that CCTV and its ‘erosion of our liberties’ is a bad thing. The most measurable effect of CCTV has been in the detection and prosecution of these individuals. The terrorists lawyers in the current trial wont even contest this.

So it is interesting to read that Britons are quite prepared to give up a lot more in the fight against the present fanatics.

The result of 3,000 interviews conducted by the National Centre for Social Research — concludes that there is broad public support for new anti-terrorism measures. 81% backed tapping a suspects phone, home curfews and detention without charge. The public is happy to relinquish its right to privacy and freedom in the hope of beating terrorism. Opposition to compulsory identity cards has also plummeted over the past 15 years, with 22 per cent of people now opposing the move, compared with almost 50 per cent in 1990.

(As i recall the police were accused of deliberately removing footage and lying about it not being available from Stockwell station on July 22nd as a cover up over the De Menezes shooting. It is arguably worth noting where the terrorist was and how much of Stockwell station’s footage was needed in the successful pursuit and quick arrests of all those involved on July 21st.  The footage in the train was also examined in the determination of the officers conduct).

Backyard Terror

By ATWadmin On January 23rd, 2007 at 9:50 am

It is always strange to discover that you live within a few miles of potential terrorists who want to bring about the destruction of the country you live in (Unionists have lived with that unacceptable inconvenience for over eighty years).  This morning, West Yorkshire police raided four houses in the Halifax area and arrested two men on the suspicion of plotting acts of terror. 

Auntie Beeb tells us the men were ‘British Pakistanis’ (whatever that means.  It must be a politically correct euphemism for MUSLIMS), which means that the raids almost certainly took place in the St John’s area of the town, where 95% of its Muslim population live: a fact which puts Halifax near the top of the league when it comes to racially divided towns in the UK.

This arrest proves that nobody can be complacent.  If acts of terror are being plotted in what is a relatively sleepy former mill town, it means the tentacles of Islamic terror stretch into every nook and cranny.  If these men are guilty, a big gesture of thanks should go to the officers who mounted the operation.

Interesting to note that Bin Laden’s henchman, Ayman al-Zawahri, has released a video mocking the decision of the US President to send more US troops into Iraq in order to quell the Sunni and Jihadist insurgence. In an excerpt of the video al-Zawahri said the US strategy for Iraq, outlined by Bush in a speech on January 9, was doomed to fail and he challenged him to send “the entire army”. “I ask him, why send 20,000 (troops) only – why not send 50 or 100,000?, said al-Zawahri. “Aren’t you aware that the dogs of Iraq are pining for your troops’ dead bodies?” (Not as much as I’m pining for a daisy-cutter to land on his head, natch!)

kennedy.jpgHis contempt for the courageous decision of President Bush, and the valour of the US troops concerned, is reflected in the anti-Bush hysteria which disfigures the political left. People like senior Democrat heavyweight (in every sense of the word) Ted Kennedy also attack the President’s decision, and actively try to subvert the will of their commader-in-chief. So we see a marriage of convenience between Al Qu’eda and al-liberals. Both are united in a visceral loathing of the decision by the US President, and those other nations that support him, to FIGHT BACK against the craven killers and assorted psychopaths of militant Islam.
