Thugs

Ken Bigley was murdered. Once again, it should be clear what we are up against. Murdering thugs. These people WANT mayhem. They WANT bloodshed. Several times now, terrorist groups have made statements about “the righteous” (i. e. theocratic Fascists) loving death. Death, mayhem, bloodshed, constant war, oppression, spitting on human dignity. You cannot, as some dangerously naïve people have tried to, explain this kind of behaviour. Nor is it desirable. It is the antithesis of everything our Western democratic and humanistic values stand for. And I think Tony Blair put it succinctly when he said:
"They are not provoked by our actions; but by our existence."
