Piers BS: Unite Against Terror (196* d) RE: BS: Unite Against Terror 25 Jul 05


The organisers of this petition are pro-war bloggers and pundits and some of the people behind 'Labour Friends of Iraq' - the suicide bomber are terrorists but shock and awe isn't brigade, the same old lot who go around accusing anyone who does not support the invasion/occupation of Iraq of supporting terrorists - 'if you are not with us you are against us'. Their selective condemnation of some terrorism is indicative of the position of the organisers. It also states no prescription for action just to being against terrorism, as if this is some revelation. But what to do about it?

Its political significance is likely to be zilch. The statement indicates that this terrorism is due to extremist Islamists and nothing to do with competition between Western capitalist backing 'democracy' and the arabian capitalists (like Osama Bin Laden) and aspirant capitalists that command Al Queada over the oil booty. This is the basis of the 6 points and why wouldn't I sign it.
