Recalling the Obvious


With Blair and Bush bleating that terror attacks by Islamic nutcases have nothing to do with anything our governments may have done, this bears repeating:

If you go into other people's countries

and bomb them

they will bomb you.

You can call them what you like

You can tell us that our cause is noble

You can tell us that they're evil and we are good

But the rule remains:

If you go into other people's countries

and bomb them

they will bomb you.

You can tell us that you've flushed out the troublemakers

You can tell us that you've neutralised the flashpoints

You can tell us that you've sown the seeds of the future

But the rule remains:

If you go into other people's countries

and bomb them

they will bomb you.

The cause is plain. The cure is simple. Britain and America should get out of Iraq.
