Lionizing Monsters

The Scottish Twit who released the convicted terrorist is a person deserving of a slow and painful natural death for the further outrage that he has perpetrated on the victims of an atrocious mass murder of innocent victims.

Perhaps his behavior is an example of the “Euro-Twit Syndrome” that afflicts those who still believe that monsters can be appeased and that one should not be too beastly with those who slaughter innocent victims with impunity.

The cheering reception that this terrorist got upon is return compounds the initial outrage. How nice if a well-placed cluster bomb had ruined the celebration.

This is not a new symptom of the mindlessness that afflicts “the street”.

Perhaps the Dictator of Libya may feel that with a near-countryman in the White House, he has nothing to fear but hollow words.

Perhaps Israel may teach one set of monsters an overdue lesson. It might “encourage the others”.

  1. For sake of argument, if one assumes that there was no behind the scenes deal-making between Libya and Britain in this, the argument of “showing compassion” is unacceptable. The very act of showing this compassion toward the Lockerbie bomber becomes a simultaneous decision to deny compassion toward the victims’ families. Why would the courts selectively choose to reward the guilty and punish the victims? And this qualifies as justice?

    I don’t think it has anything to do with a “near-countryman” in the WH. I believe that is an unrealistic stretch at best. But I do believe it reflects Europe’s modern slide into a default appeasement mentality. It’s sheer arrogance to believe that their generosity will be rewarded in like or actually have some transforming powers. This naivete will be the death of Europe.

  2. What do you think the chances are that the Libyan people know exactly what the returning jackass did? Gaddafi has quite the stranglehold on his country’s media. The people greeting the bastard at the airport probably thought he was some sort of innocent political prisoner.

    “Hi, I’m Art Downs. I was against terrorism before I was for it!”

    Come now, Thomas – when the Good Guys inflict death and destruction on a civilian population for political purposes, this is hardly terrorism, is it? Morality is a relative thing, after all.
