Livingstone: Terrorism in London is the Fault of the UK

4 out of 5 leftists agree…

Ken Livingstone claims terrorist attacks fuelled by UK foreign policy

Shattering the political truce that had emerged since the four bomb attacks, London Mayor Ken Livingstone said resentment was being fuelled as a result of the treatment of detainees by United States troops at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. He went so far as to suggest the English public would themselves resort to suicide bombings if placed under certain circumstances.

“You’ve just had 80 years of western intervention into predominantly Arab lands because of the western need for oil. We’ve propped up unsavoury governments, we’ve overthrown ones we didn’t consider sympathetic.”

This is the mindset of a typical liberal. If we just try to understand the plight of the terrorist, we wouldn’t be targets of their anger.

Then he follows with this gem:

“I do not support any suicide bombings. I don’t ever recall supporting an act of violence,” he said. But he made it clear that he regarded suicide attacks as the natural result of political decisions. “Under foreign occupation and denied the right to vote, denied the right to run your own affairs, often denied the right to work for three generations, I suspect that if it had happened here in England, we would have produced a lot of suicide bombers ourselves.

What Ken and the rest of the Left don’t understand is that the terrorist doesn’t want sympathy, understanding, or a bully pulpit from which to speak.

The terrorist wants you dead. Dead as in no longer living. D-E-A-D.

Why can’t liberals understand this?
