Bush wants 3-day shutdown of central London so he doesn't have to look at protestors.

    Interesting point: The IRA

    I wonder how things would change if Bush or his people were
    attacked by an english speaking, God fearing group of white people.

    It might change his mind about the current image of the 'terrorist'.

    Yep ... article here.

    A sample:
    President Bush has never been an advocate of the First Amendment. Even when he was governor of Texas, he prohibited demonstrations on the walkways in front of the governor's mansion, an area which had traditionally been used for peaceful protests.

    As president, Bush has widened his restrictions on demonstrations against his policies. Anti-Bush protesters are now relegated to what are euphemistically called Free Speech Zones. These areas are cordoned off as far as a mile away from the president and the main thoroughfares, so that Bush cannot see the demonstrators, or their signs of protest, nor hear their chants.

    The free speech enclosures are only for those who disagree with the administration's current policies. Those citizens who carry pro-Bush signs are allowed to line the street where the president's motorcade passes.

    Maybe ... except the IRA's bombings have been widely denounced as terrorism for quite some time, so publicly, at least, the rhetoric wouldn't change at all.

    true kilo true...

    look at that white college kid that left box cutters and fake bombs on tons of southwest flights... think they'd be stressing leniency and leeting him go on personal recogniscance if his name were ahmed musawi? i don't think so---> guantanamo bay and "enemy combatant" status for you my friend...
    ps- where's jose padilla (aka the DIRTY BOMBER) <---no, not browner, the other dirty bomber

    Bottom of article, in pertinent part:
    Another "war on terror" case, that of suspected al-Qaeda operative Jose Padilla, is before a federal appeals court in New York and seems likely to reach the Supreme Court soon. Padilla, a U.S. citizen, was arrested last year at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport. Authorities suspect he was working with al-Qaeda on potential bombing plots, perhaps involving radioactive "dirty bombs." Padilla has been designated an enemy combatant and is being held, without access to an attorney, in a military prison in South Carolina.

    Yeah PMB, the IRA is know far and wide,
    and now this faction called 'the real IRA' is trying
    to uh.... blow up large. The've got their history.

    But using Tearz' point,
    The Bush administration would be a hell of a lot softer
    on a freckle face kid name 'Brian O'Brien' weaing a rosary
    than they would be on a dark skinned man weaing a kufi
    named 'Muhhamed Ali Muhhamed'

    Ahh.. yes. Very, very true, especially in relation to the Southwest Airlines kid, as TEARZ pointed out.
