Re;Killing Terrorists.

The IRA, by its survival - the reason for its sruvival that is , is the exception which reinforces the observation.

By the time Tony Blair was elected, the IRA was finished. That siutation was due to steel nerved intelligence and, under Margaret Thatcher, a shift from using line regiments to special forces. The result, the IRA was being successfully wiped out, killed one by one.When Blair opened the peacenik door to the IRA, the killers were happy to sit down. Tony Blair let them off the hook , to live another day and continue to acquire weapons, engage in arms and drugs smuggling. A columnist in the Spectator, pointed out, the `poolitical arm' of IRA, Sinn Fein is very much involved in drugs running, extortion and blackmail.Another columnist also reinforced the obvious, the heads of Sinn Fein including Gerry Adams, are up to the eyeballs in crime and the blood of murdered men, women and children.

There should have been no peace deal with IRA-SinnFein, and specialist units allowed to get on with the work of wiping each and everyone of them.
As a bye note, it was an utter disgrace of Sydney University to honour Gerry Adams by inviting him to address the University.
As usual, that murdering savage scumbag gave his usual whining special pleading - asserting , `we only want what you Australians enjoy'. Well, Gerry blowhole Adams, what Australians enjoy is freedoms which very English instutions generate - common law, parlaimentary government, and commerce. As for you, Adams, what should have happened is, govenrment operative should have taken the opportunity your visit to Australia provided, to do to you what you have done to many others.
No , that is not quite correct, an assasin's bullet is more merciful than the means by which many of your victims were killed.
A further irony, while the Government refused a passport to David Irving - as an undesireable, it let into Australia someone who is up there with the sort of scumbags who warrant the concerted action the governments US, Aust, Britain and others are now committed to.

Here is a cheering muse. An Australian citizen who regularly sent money to the IRA whined in public, on a current affairs programme, he is on a hit list and dare not travel to Ireland. All one can say to that thug, your whine is a chip off the old Adam's block.You made your bed abetting killers so lie in it and stew. Indeed, in common law, to aid and abet killers is a equally a serious offence, so why haven't such friends to muderers been arraigned in courts on the approriate charges?

This is a comments page d, not an essay page.

Pezza, they are extended comments, one might say.But ,here is a shorter one, the above reinforces, being nice to killers only encourages them.Ah, here one goes again.
Read an article, an interview with an Ozzie who hired himself out to whack terrorists. When they ,he mused, the terrorists, each of them whom he whacked, realised they were about to recieve in good measure what they meted out to so many ( more violently though),the fear was palpalable, visible , written all over their nasty mugs. So too the killers in IRA, brave lads right up until the day they face a foe of men who are brave and do not flinch from doing the murdering savages in.

Your preaching to the converted here mate, but its just that its hard to read all the comments when their 1000 words long. I think you'd get your point across better if you keep it brief.

Blast, Pezza, what's needed is someone who goes cross eyed and blows smoke over this sort of stuff to post their sensitive communard feelings on such matters.Then we can both go hammer and tongs with one or two liners, brightens up the day ragging ratbags.

Hmmn, something one has pondered but it is so well covered and well done by gentlemen like Mr.Tim Blair and others,one more might be overkill.

. . . and then there's the obvious risk!

My wife gets V. upset when I use the C word, normally preceded by the F word used as an adjective - except when I'm watching the TV news and there is a story about another terrorist outrage - then she just nods. Strangely, I find this reassuring.

What obvious risk Mork? Using a metaphorical side by side 12g against the dribblers in Spring St, for example, is as safe as hunting duck. Communard ABC, a doddle, they supply all the gags.
As for the Dork and Minda act - Crean and Beazely, too easy - by the bye, the fat guy is yet to receive a proper thrashing for sinking taxpayers money into the Kockup submarine and the scam called the Australian Submarine Company whose business is to build AUstralian submarines(?!). This is starters.

Beattie, rolling around in a deep hole ALP dug for itself over Hollingworth is now about to have cement poured over him for this:a stable of Beatties under the `company',Australian Magnesium Stanwell. If common law -commercial application, and corporations law &etc applied to governments, Beattie and his beatniks would be up to their eyeballs defending charges. As Terry McCrann wrote: `there would never have been a project... but for the Queensland Government's...lure. There's more on this example of malfaesance by a nice socialist government.Come to consider it, so too the Cain-Kirner govts. over their spectacular attempts of lets pretend we are entrepeneurs. So too Bracks and Brumby over that bit of garbage, the Spencer ST Station redevelopment, its planned boys X-mas present a super fast train set and,-oh ,the list goes on and on and on.

No risk, Mork, when communard dribblers supply such hard evidence in untold abundance.Perhaps I'M wrong... there is so much work to be done such that, indeed,....bring on more blogs.
