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.

2 Of course terrorism works. That's why it's used. Terrorism is a tool to get what you want. It's been used since the 1940s. The more it works the more it will be used. Is Germany and France doing Bulgaria a favor? They think so. The problem is if you name and attack these terrorist groups you're setting yourself up for more attacks. If you don't name and attack them back they will attack you again and again until they get what they want. All you can do is work at rooting them out and figure out the cause of their terrorism. Then attack that. The world has a rough row to hoe but it can do it.

3 Let me add that the world is far to easy on those convicted of terrorism. Any act of terrorism, large or small, successful or not should be met with the death penalty. Take a ugly, unemployed, under educated heartless asshole and put him in prison for life in the UK and you've done him a favor. Him and his bros will live a good life, be well fed and housed, with the best of medical care while they meet and joke about the good ole days. Who ever killed the most gets to be the leader at prayers.
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.

4 If you don't name Hezbollah they will not hurt you. It also helps to put a blankey over your head.

5 What is more the truth is that if Hezbollah hurts you if you don't name them they won't hurt you again?

When pigs fly.

6 As usual when it comes to Jews, Europe shows it's cowardly side. If it was a bus full of Frenchmen or Germans, they'd be screaming for the Bulgarians to do something. Fuck the whole lot of them.

7 So Hezbollah is now Voldemort?

8 Hezbollah is the proxy for Iran. Iran responded to the killing of its nuke scientists by the proxies that Israel uses in Iran. Non of the euros want this proxy war to happen in their countries or acknowledge it happening.

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

10 Sorry Occam. Europe has been allowing Jews to be killed for almost 2000 years now, proxies be damned.

11 Greetings:

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.

12 Nuanced? Was that not J. Kerry's nickname in the Nam?

13 @11B40: your absolutely correct. The Bulgarians were legendary for their expertise in wet work. That's why the Russians and East Germans used them all the time.

14 Bulgaria has nastier folks than al Qaeda, believe it. They would fry diaperheads for fun.

15 Germany and France warns Bulgaria about Hezbollah and it ends up being a Jewish thing?

Posted by: Big Al at February 05, 2013 08:39 PM

16 Hmm Bulgaria 'becoming the focus' of attacks and then they declare war on the states that support Hezbolla (Iran...)

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.
