The Brits Get It! Shoot-to-Kill
I've got to hand it to my British cousins...they sure know how to get a point across. All day yesterday after the 4 failed bombing attacks on their subways and buses, it had been suggested by most of the US news media that Scotland Yard had issued to it's officers a shoot-to-kill order for anyone believed to be attempting to set off a bomb. Well, today it's no longer a "suggestion". When a suspected bomber wearing a heavy coat (in the middle of July) ran from police, failed to heed their warnings, jumped a turn-stile and entered a subway train, he was caught and shot dead... just like in the old west.
I love it! Maybe the next terrorists (and yes...they are terrorists) will think twice before buying a ticket on the Allah Virgin Express. It is moments like this that put the "Great" in Great Britain. This is the proper way to deal with terrorists. No trials, no lawyers, no shrinks trying to understand why they hate us. Just "wham-bam, thank you ma'am". Done.
Bloody good show if you ask me.
