British Prime Minister drops the Phrase “War on Terror”

July 3, 2007

I believe the thwarted terror attacks in Britian were a bit of a test for the new British prime minister. The terrorists are watching with great interest to see how Gordon Brown responds. After the attack attempts he has said all the right things.

Until now. Today Gordon Brown said a couple of things I find disturbing and downright disheartening.

He has said we should not refer to the terrorists as Muslims or Islamic.

Brown has spoken of “al-Qaida” attackers but not of “Islamic” or “Muslim” terrorists.

“They’re focusing on terrorists as criminals, rather than people of a religious persuasion. I think (Brown) is going to continue to stand firm.”

Isn’t treating terrorist attacks as criminal acts and not as acts of war the same policies that emboldened the terrorists and led to September 11th? He want’s to return to a pre-9/11 mindset?

He has also decided to drop the term “war on terror”. We wouldn’t want to anger the terrorists now would we?

The war is lost when we cannot refer to these people for who they are. How can we win the war when we can’t even call terrorists by name.

Maybe it is time to pull out of Iraq and the war on terror after all. The terrorists have already won, if not on the battlefield then in the politically correct minds of the western people.

Yes, the latest failed terrorist attacks in Britain were a test, a test of British government resolve, and it seems as though being politically correct has out weighed even calling the enemy what they are.

I guess the attacks didn’t fail after all.

    Only time will tell if the new British Prime Minister has the testicular requirements to fight our common enemy. How many of you conservatives can remember how you despised Tony Blair when he became PM?
    The Labor Party has little in it’s background to warm the hearts of Conservatives, and If Brown is a throw-back to those days we have problems indeed. Tony had a spiritual awakening that revolutionized his political thinking. For Conservatives spiritual involvement in their political life is not foreign by any means. We do not allow our spiritual values to over-ride constitutional guarantees as the Islamanazis do. They still are a driving force in our understanding of mankind and the future we hope to preserve for our children and grandchildren. It gives us the insight as to what man is capable of and the courage to withstand man’s inherent inclination to bend to outside pressure even when we know it’s wrong to do so. Can you say Trent Lott, Lindsey Graham, John Kyl, Mitch McConnell ?

    The United Kingdoms current, and previous, prime ministers have me remembering Chamberlain and Churchill.

    Except that this time, the more recent one is bent on achieving peace in our time. (
