Insane. They create terrorism with their poliices, then use it to ramp up "security" and control. Unacceptable. Let the Brits and the governments of the world know that we won't live in the shadow of their Security States.

Just boycott the Olympics.

What the f*ck are you gibbering about?
Be a bit more explicit, who is "they" and "we"?

Would have thought that my reference to "the Brits and governments of the world" (should probably have said "the West") would have clued you in, but perhaps as a Brit, English isn't your first language? ;)

Assuming you are a Yank, getting on your high horse about others creating terrorism is a bit hypocritical.
Your country funds and plays host to the biggest terrorist organisation in the world, namely the CIA.

Brits don't like to be called "terrorists" even though they terrorized the Irish for 900 years and the rest of the world for what, another 300 or so?

Britain: We INVENTED slave-trading, colonialism, and imperialism!

LOL...idiot.

You missed out Concentration Camps, we "Brits" "INVENTED" those as well.

As for the Irish, not as a whole nation only selected factions.

"and the rest of the world for what, another 300 or so?", give us some credit we've been at it for a lot longer than that.

Did you not do the same with the native americans? and to a great extent are are still doing it.

If we are in the business of applauding nations for nasty stuff then surely the US must take the highest award. You Septics are the consumate masters at adopting others deviant/obscene practices and improving/extending them.

However, to be serious for a moment, I am not in the business of applauding nations for nasty stuff. I'm only suggesting that when talking about U.S. atrocities and awful national and international behavior, that the apple didn't fall far from the tree.

To be honest I think we planted the tree and along with others are still feeding it with manure.
