George Galloway: Coward
Terrorists kill because they believe it is the right thing to do. That is, they are acting out of moral conviction. This is why much terrorist propaganda is laced with quotes from popular Leftist writers.The Left, Islamists, and terrorists essentially share the same world view: The U.S. is an Imperial power which systematically exploits the developing world, oppresses them, and which has no interest in bettering the lot of humanity. The difference between your run of the mill Leftist or Islamists and terrorists is that terrorists act on the convictions they share. If the U.S. is the power it is made out to be by Noam Chomsky, then insurgents in Iraq are doing the right thing in killing American soldiers. And if George Bush is as bad or worse than Hitler--as he is often accused of being by the Left--then a moral person, by definition, would be forced to use any means necessary to kill him. The Independent:
"Would the assassination of, say, Tony Blair by a suicide bomber - if there were no other casualties - be justified as revenge for the war on Iraq?" Mr Galloway replied: "Yes, it would be morally justified. I am not calling for it - but if it happened it would be of a wholly different moral order to the events of 7/7. It would be entirely logical and explicable. And morally equivalent to ordering the deaths of thousands of innocent people in Iraq - as Blair did."There you go. Once you accept the premise that Blair "ordered the deaths of thousands of innocent people in Iraq" the logical conclusion flowing from the premise is that assassinating Blair "would be morally justified." But the logical conclusion flowing from that premise cannot end at "justified", for if Tony Blair continues to intentionally order the deaths of innocent people in Iraq, then he must be stopped. If the premise is true than one has no other choice but to kill Blair given that no other method has worked at stopping the war. See how this all works? Once you've swallowed the worldview of the Left, then the road to terrorism is only stopped by one of two things: lack of opportunity or cowardice. So, why haven't George Galloway or others on the hardcore Left assassinated Tony Blair or George Bush? They are cowards. Hat tip to PJ Media in Sydney.
They're like the NRA and Shin Fein were. The islamists are the military wing, the Leftards are the political wing, both working for essentially the same end goal.

I would assert that most on the Left aren't really "Leftists"--they are liberals or "progressives".
But for those that buy into the Chomskyite worldview, tell me why Galloway isn't correct in saying an assassination of Blair wouldn't be justified? Unless one is a pacifist, then it is the only logical conclusion.

But Galloway's assertion is exactly what many on the Left say, on a daily basis, and worse.

Let's hear your suggestions. Because God forbid we should offend anyone. Or grow a thicker skin.

? And as for mary Jo I can't answer that question but feel free to read any of the many books that were written on that matter. Having lived on Martha's Vineyard for over 5 years I can tellyou that my curiosity on that has diminished over the last 3+ decades. Since truth is somewhat of a subjective matter please feel free to imagine whatever you wish about that matter. Quite frankly your opinion of Ted Kennedy is of little concern to me. Ands today's quote from Rusty's esteemed George Orwell "War against a foreign country only occurs when the moneyed classes think they are going to profit from it" http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/g/george_orwell.html

A suicide bomber is willing to die to defend his the women and children of his country from the murderous forces of the Iraq occupation. That is not a coward.
The coward is the author of the original post, who withheld her/his name, not George Galloway, who spoke openly.
As for US leaders of the Iraq war and top soldiers in Iraq, they should be treated as war criminals and tried in a Nuremberg type trial. If they have committed capital crimes, of course they should take the punishment.

bwahaha! A suicide bomber's primary target appears to BE the women and children of his country-- at least in Iraq. Don't tell me they aren't cowards. Iraqis continue to die at the hands of the very people who kill them in the name of jihad.
