Report: France, Germany Pressure Bulgaria into NOT Naming Hezbollah as Behind Bus Bombing
Unbelievable! Oh, wait. Did I say unbelievable? I meant, very believable. As in -- exactly what we've learned to expect from Old Europe:
The Commentator has learned that both the German and French governments have both piled pressure on the Bulgarians to "use nuanced language" in the report, for fear that Bulgaria may be the focus of future attacks if Hezbollah is openly named. The Bulgarian government, it has been stated by leading sources, has been informed through ‘back channels’ that there will be serious repercussions from Hezbollah if it is to publically and overtly name the group. This information comes despite strong pressure from the US government to make clear that the bombing was indeed the work of the Lebanese terrorist outfit.So, if this info is right then Germany and France don't want Bulgaria to call out Hezbollah by name as behind the bus bombing for fear that ... Hezbollah will attack again? Hezbollah: call them terrorists and they will keel you! Isn't the clear implication here that terrorism does work? That at least some countries in Europe can be scared into policy decisions favored by the terrorists for fear of violence. I think it does. Of course, there is another explanation here. Namely, that France and Germany don't consider blowing up a bus full of Jews as "terrorism". Nah, that could never happen.

Countries without the death penalty don't help matters much. I know an American who was with someone who murdered another crook. He was 18 yrs old and given life for being part of it when he didn't even know it was going to happen. He's been locked up in Angola for 34 years and will probably die there. His brother is a close friend of mine. Terrorists get treated much, much better. Compare his plight to those at the Gitmo resort.

At least in Canada, the media is naming Hezbollah as responsible as per news releases from the Bulgarian govt.

I seem to remember that the Bulgarians used to know a thing or two about doing nasty things to nasty people. Maybe someone should be giving Hezbollah a heads up about not annoying the Bulgarians.

We need to stop dicking around and start to destroy the nests that these evil snakes keep coming from. Sleeper cells ? Why not eliminate them now as they if anything will get bigger and have more time to set up their heineous acts they are there for.
