London, continued

My entry on London yesterday sparked an argument on my comment board. Fair enough. We're all adults and can handle the bruising comment and the rough and tumble free exchange of ideas.

But when it comes to a reaction to what happened in London, Mia said it best. Go read her Fuck Off Letter. I have nothing to add but that I found it inspirational.

I like it a lot.

Sorry if i got a little fired up RP. I'll try to keep it cool.

I really feel for those people in London. I stil haven't heard from my friend Ken who works in London.

First of all, I'll admit I didn't read all of Dr. Pants' posts, but I doubt I need to. I've heard it all before.

Dr. Pants, answer me this: If these cowards really, truly want peace (or whatever the hell it is they want), why do they not take the high road and sit down at a table to discuss it, to prove to the world they aren't the vicious, cowardly barbarians their actions constantly prove them to be?

I don't know.

Via the Llamas:

In The Last Lion, William Manchester wrote that upon becoming prime minister, Churchill said he "thought long and hard these last few days about whether it is part of my duty that I should enter into negotiations with that man [Hitler] and I have concluded that if this long island story of ours is to end at last, let it end when each of us lies on the ground choking in his own blood."

I don't think Winnie would have been for giving jihadist terrorists a hug and an apology.

Mark: Quite right. I am trying to understand what, exactly, brings people to the conclusion that appeasement is a viable strategy in the war on terror.
