London… really?

I guess we’ve all heard the news by now. I mean, it’s been 24 hours. And we’ve even got a copycat in Antwerp. But yes, some idiot figured it would be a good idea to drive his car into some pedestrians and then to try and enter Parliament while firing his guns. An attack now claimed by ISIS.

*Sigh*

We’d almost get used to attacks like this. But seriously, why do they even bother? By now, those wannabe-terrorists should have figured out that each attack results in a shock going through the Western world, followed by resolve to not give in to terrorism.
And now they’ve chosen London.

London…really?

A few decades ago, a man gave a speech about a threat to his country:

  “…We shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be.

We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender, and if, which I do not for a moment believe, this island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God’s good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.”

That man, was Winston Churchill (a rather interesting name, in view of the religious aspects of ISIS), speaking about the Nazis. Those Nazis had a pretty impressive army to bring down upon Britain. Their airforce was by far superior to the Royal Airforce. And still, against all odds, the Battle of Britain was won by the English.

And now ISIS, on the brink of destruction, thinks it would be a good idea to take on that exact same People?

I have one question for you terrorists: “What in the name of Allah are you thinking?”

    I live in London and these events have really left us in shock. It’s scary to travel into London as you can never relax but we cannot let these people stopped daily life and commute.
