Ok... now a few opinions.
First, I think that what Livingstone said was absolutely incredible. He actually said what no other first world politician has had the balls to say, IF they even realize it. Second, the fact that blair couldn't really diss the guy, but says that they fundamentally disagree. OBVIOUSLY. One of you wants to actually end terrorism... the other wants to be in bed with the US, slaughtering innocent Arabs and getting your hands on the oil supply. Gee... which is which?
In a briefing before parliament, Home Secretary Charles Clarke outlined three new criminal offenses at the heart of the government's proposals.
One provision would make the indirect incitement of terrorism an offense, a measure intended to silence radical clerics who have praised terrorist attacks.
Another proposed offense would be acts considered preparatory to terrorism. That would enable security authorities to intervene at an earlier stage to protect the public.
A third would apply a broader definition applied to the giving and receiving of terrorist training.
that part bothers me... those kind of laws are totally heading down a very dark and bad road. They are ALWAYS used in ways in which they're not supposed to be... "you're reading a book you shouldn't be. TERRORIST!"
British Muslim leaders said on Wednesday they had called for an independent judicial inquiry into what motivated the London bombings during their talks with Blair at Downing Street.
"The scale of disenchantment amongst Muslim youth is very clear to see," Inayat Bungalwala of the Muslim Council of Britain told the Associated Press.
"Various factors are at play: underachievement in education; a high rate of unemployment; discrimination in the workplace; social exclusion, and also the government's own policies, especially in Iraq.
"The process of how we get four homegrown suicide bombers must be understood and that is why we are calling for an inquiry."
LIVINGSTONE JUST POINTED YOU IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION YOU FUCKING IDIOTS. TRY PULLING YOUR HEADS OUT OF YOUR COLLECTIVE ASSES.
I'm still frankly amazed that Livingstone came so close to the truth... wow. He actually referred to Israel and Palestine. (o_0) !!
It's refreshing to see a man with balls and a brain stand up and tell the truth.
YOU GO LIVINGSTONE. YOU GO.
To get more of the actual story, and not "here's a few sentences about what Livingstone said, and now here's a huge ton more crap that's not even the same story, but just a bunch of ass kissing shit to try to distract you from what he just said.", read the following article on Aljazeera that actually covers the story:
Livingstone blames UK foreign policy, defends Muslim cleric.
