Soccer Hooligans In Iraq Now!
I’m starting to get tired of how we are handling the war on terror. Let me explain in the context of the latest attacks against the Brits. I lived in England when the IRA were blowing up innocents in Ireland and England. What I remember most from that time is that Scotland Yard, MI5, MI6 had no compunction in pulling IRA murderers out of buildings knowing where they were, and putting them in jail, or killing them outright. Back then, the Brits took an eye for an eye, literally. With time, money and resources on the Queen’s side, eventually, the IRA went away. I am explaining away most of the other socio-economic factors that helped end the IRA’s grip on terror – industrialization, mass consumerism, etc., But in the end, the IRA ran out of bullets along with its popularity, not to mention that most of its apparatus was in jail, dead and it’s sympathizers here in the US and around the world gave up giving them money and favorable press.
Tomorrow, Blair needs to start taking London apart, building by building. Go into the Muslim ghettos and start pulling these murderers out of their mosques and send them back to the Middle East. That way, these pieces of camel dung can be killed by coalition forces once and for all.
I have a solution. Soccer Hooligans! The best weapon the Brits have besides their outstanding Special Ops units in their Marines or Army.
Now to make this work, you can’t get any fans from the Premiership Teams. Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool fans are not Hooligans, they are just too tame. Man U might come close, but their fans are still too pissed about the owner of the Bucs buying their team.
Blair is going to have to dig deep into the other Divisions. Millwall, Luton, Burnley, are the first teams to come to mind. How about this…Let’s get Celtic and Rangers’ fans together in Glasgow and broadcast over the loud speaker that Kenny Daglish was just murdered by Al Zarqauwi. Iraq would be cleaned up before the beginning of the second half! (I just thought of this – English Hooligans have more travel restrictions on them then Muslims coming in and out of England!)
On a more serious note, its time for Blair and Dubbya to do the following (sanitzed List):
- End immigration now
- Close the borders (US) with the National Guard on orders to hunt – no bag limit!
- Deport all Middle East and Muslim Far East college students
- Suspend all Work Visas immediately for anyone from the Mid-East
- Revoke the IRS exempt tax status on all Muslim organizations
- Any Professor of Mid-East origin who is not a US Citizen is immediately deported
How’s that for a start? Better yet, send in the Millwall Hooligans before the new season starts in August!
Sounds very racist.
I find the idea less than compelling that by becoming all the bad things they say we are somehow allows us to win.
With the number of reactionaries online it's getting harder to tell what is crazy-serious and crazy-haha. Anyway, as someone who has lived surrounded by a lot of very pleasant and very pro american muslims who were attacked and marginalized for their beliefs I think its hard to find it funny.
"With time, money and resources on the Queen’s side, eventually, the IRA went away."
The Queen does not pay for the British Government. The Queen is a ceremonial head of state and does not hold any power whatsoever.
It was my understanding that the IRA has not gone away but simply announced a ceasefire after quiet negotiations with the John Major Government. I am no fan of John Major or his Government, but the fact that they were willing to talk to the terrorists, which no Government before them were willing to do, saved hundreds of lives.
It's a problem, though. Turn a blind eye to a couple of murders and save hundreds of future murders? Difficult. I would not like to be a politician.
I think its important to also note the giant difference between US/Iraq and England/IRA. The IRA had actually attacked England and killed English civilians. I'm pretty sure that is a major distinction.
