Where to start? Where to start? How about Williamsburg, VA? I was in a shop in that fine town on December 21, 1988, when news broke of the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. (Scotland is in the UK). Those of you who were alive 29 years ago – Lord, time flies – may recall the event. A 747 destroyed and 259 people killed; terrible.
A Libyan gentleman, name of Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, was indicted by U.S. and Scottish authorities. After many years of hiding in Libya (his home), he was extradited to the Netherlands to stand trial on the Scottish charges. He was convicted and imprisoned in Scotland.
In 2009, following a bout with cancer, he was “compassionately” released back to Libya, where he received a hero’s welcome. Murder 259 people and you get compassion and you’re a hero – what a world…
My point with all of that is that the UK has a long, twisted relationship with Libya.
In 2011, you may also recall, England lent a heavy hand during the Libyan Civil War. In 2011 or 2012 the UK and its bankster criminal class looted the sovereign wealth of the Libyan people, some $200 Billion or so. There was more interference and looting than one could shake a blog at but that was the big-ticket item. The money is still safely held “for the Libyans” … in London.
This, by the way, was the incident that set off the legal wrangling with the Goldman Sachs. That’s the same bank Hilary worked for and from which Trump hires for damned near every position in his administration. It’s spelled: c-o-r-r-u-p-t.
Anyway, the British bankers stole a mint. The American bankers won a paltry judgement. Col. Gaddafi was deposed and shot dead in the street. Thousands more were killed, maimed, or left homeless and destitute. Libya is ruined. And terrorists now run amok in the formerly half-way decent Arab country. Many of them travel back and forth between Tripoli and England. They have done that for decades, actually.
And now I get to it…
One lovely little family of Libya terrorists settled in Manchester (England, not New Hampshire). Momma and Pappa Jihad had some boys. One of the sons detonated a nail bomb at the Ariana Grande concert the other night. Salman Abedi was a son of a bitch. And his father and brothers and probably the rest of his family and most of his friends were evil bastards too.
Worse than evil: Satanic evil, all the worse for being blindly tolerated. The Sun.
Pappa Jihad Abedi, just today, was arrested back in Libya on terrorism charges. He has links to ISIS and Al Qaeda. Imagine that.
Manchester bomber Salman Abedi apparently wasn’t the only member of his family to harbor extremist views, as Libyan officials arrested the suicide bomber’s father and two brothers and uncovered what investigators called a plot for a new attack.
In this Wednesday, May 24, 2017 photo, Hashim Ramadan Abedi appears inside the Tripoli-based Special Deterrent anti-terrorism force unit after his arrest on Tuesday for alleged links to the Islamic State extremist group. Abedi is the brother of Salman Abedi, who has been identified as the man behind the bombing that killed 22 people and wounded scores at an Ariana Grande concert Monday night in Manchester. The Special Deterrent Force says that Hashim confessed both he and his brother were a part of the Islamic State group and that Hashim had been aware of the details of the attack.

Hashim Abedi, who was born in 1997, was arrested in Tripoli on Wednesday evening by the Libyan counter-terrorism force Rada on suspicion of links to the Islamic State, and was planning a new attack on the Libyan capital, a government spokesman told Reuters on Wednesday.
The father of the bomber was arrested in Tripoli on Wednesday, a Libyan security spokesman told The Associated Press. The father, Ramadan Abedi, had said another brother of the bomber, Ismail, was arrested Tuesday.
What’s more, two U.S. defense officials confirmed to Fox News that Salman Abedi spent three weeks in Libya prior to the Manchester bombing, returning to England just days before the Ariana Grande concert Monday, when he launched his attack at the concert venue.
Salman’s mother, Samia Tabbal, is believed to have returned to Libya, while the Facebook profile for his sister, Jomana, suggests that she still lives in Manchester. The mother was described in an article by The Guardian as a “very nice woman” who taught a friend’s daughter to read the Quran.
Lovely. Momma Jihad tutored from verse 3:151 (“Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers…”) while the menfolk read up on proper TATP concoctions. ISIS promotes literacy; I love it.
My theory is a little loose but it seems like cause and effect here. Pick up a serpent and hold it next to your breast. Don’t be surprised when it bites you.
Today the people of Manchester mourn. Some have jumped to the defense … of the terrorists. If you don’t like terrorism, then you’re a “hater” and a Nazi. Sieg Heil. Others plan a candlelight vigil for the deceased, a show of solidarity (to include solidarity with the other [many] terrorists in their midst). ISIS, for their part, vowed to try to get a truck rental scheduled for the same day and time. This stuff almost writes itself.
The terror alert is at code red or code black or whatever correlates with “critical” and “imminent”. Soldiers, thousands of them, are armed and on the streets. Their first mission is to safeguard the Queen, Theresa May, and Parliament. Any platoons left available are helping the police in a frantic effort to not offend the “just-like-us” terrorist Muslims while at the same time attempting to retain some semblance of first world order.
Just another day in the multi-culti paradise. The Telegraph.
If the Brits want my advice – and, aside from Jon, Clive, and three others, it seems they do not – they would do two things.
First, stop picking up asps and vipers! Leave these damned crazy people alone. Leave them alone in Libya, Syria, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, Pakistan, or wherever they are. They obviously enjoy a little turmoil. So let them have it. Leave them alone.
Second, get their remnants out of the UK! Use those soldiers to round them up. Interrupt the Quranic chemistry lessons if you have to. Those who vacation at ISIS bomb factories should simply be barred from ever returning. Throw them all out!
Otherwise, prepare for more bombings, more car and truck attacks, more stabbings, and more blood in Mr. Powell’s river.
In a Western country not the UK? Then just apply this same general scenario and solutions to your nation. Do so quickly.
And it was so odd. It was a gift shop and I was looking at those little metal model jet liners, including a 747, when I heard the news about the real one in Scotland. I think it snowed a little that day.
