OK To Kill Americans
There is a very thin line between compassion and self-hate and the Cult of Death (the Left) always sides with self-hate. ― Book of Common Misery
Times Archive, 1988: Bomb fear in UK’s worst air disaster
In Britain’s worst air disaster, about 300 people were killed last night when a Pan American Boeing 747 flying from London, Heathrow, to New York crashed and exploded on the small town of Lockerbie in Scotland.
Flight 103 with 258 people on board came down in flames and in pieces after a mid-air explosion that aviation experts last night said could only have been caused by massive structural failure, or a bomb.
Circumstantial evidence for a bomb was that the aircraft was filled with US Servicemen returning home for Christmas from their postings in Europe.
The aircraft left Heathrow at 6.25pm, 25 minutes late, for the seven-hour flight to John F. Kennedy Airport in New York. There were 240 fare-paying passengers on board, three babies, and 15 crew. Many of the passengers were US citizens returning home for the holiday the jumbo was said to be “loaded with Christmas presents”.
We skip to the present:
Gordon Brown in new storm over freed Lockerbie bomber
Downing Street released the text of a cordial letter sent to the Libyan leader (Muammar Gaddafi) on the day that Abdulbaset al-Megrahi was released (The terrorist had served less than eight years of a life sentence for the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103.), asking that the event be kept low key because a “high-profile” ceremony would distress his victims and their families.
The scale of fury in America was laid bare in a vitriolic letter from the director of the FBI, Robert Mueller – who as a justice department lawyer led the investigation into the bombing – describing the release in a scathing letter to MacAskill as a “mockery of the rule of law” and of the victims’ grief.
However, the Scottish government last night responded defiantly, insisting the US had made clear in discussions that, while it opposed Megrahi’s release, it regarded freeing him on compassionate grounds because of his terminal cancer as “far preferable” to a prisoner transfer deal that would have seen him in custody.
Iain Gray, Labour leader in Scotland, said: “Those calling for a boycott of Scotland are emboldened by [MacAskill’s] foolish claim that the decision was taken in the name of the people of Scotland. In seeking to portray this as a decision supported by the whole of the country, he has damaged Scotland’s reputation. It shows serious lack of judgment which has cost our country dear.”
Abdul Baset Ali al-Megrahi flies home to hero’s welcome
Al-Megrahi himself issued a statement saying that he was “obviously very relieved to be leaving my prison cell at last”. He called his conviction “nothing short of a disgrace”, adding: “This horrible ordeal is not ended by my return to Libya, it may never end for me until I die. Perhaps the only liberation for me will be death.”
His wife said that she was very, very happy at his release, which comes just in time for the Islamic holy fasting month of Ramadan. “I am overjoyed; it is indescribable. It is a great moment which we have been waiting for for nine years.”
Mr MacAskill said that the justice system demanded that judgment be imposed but that compassion be available. He accepted medical advice that al-Megrahi had terminal prostate cancer: “Mr al-Megrahi faces a sentence imposed by a higher power. It is one that no court in any jurisdiction in any land could revoke or overrule.”
True to the Cult of Death it is okay to kill innocent people, especially if those innocent people are Americans and more especially if they are American servicemen and women. This is what happens when execution is banned. An evil man is converted into a hero and a martyr.
When I read the news stories above it made me angry and I thought of the following quote, which applies to all members of the Cult of Death:
You belong to your father the devil and you willingly carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in truth, because there is no truth in him. When he tells a lie, he speaks in character, because he is a liar and the father of lies. ~ John 8:44 (New American Bible)
