"The fight against terrorism on the streets of Britain is not a war. It is the prevention of crime, the enforcement of our laws and the winning of justice for those damaged by their infringement."
-- Sir Ken MacDonald, UK director of public prosecutions
I've been saying this all along.
"London is not a battlefield. Those innocents who were murdered on July 7 2005 were not victims of war. And the men who killed them were not, as in their vanity they claimed on their ludicrous videos, 'soldiers'. They were deluded, narcissistic inadequates. They were criminals. They were fantasists. We need to be very clear about this."
Terrorism is a criminal act, with addressable causes. It is not an excuse for suspending liberties or attacking other countries.
