The bathtub defense is inane. There are expensive precautions in place to prevent terrorist attacks. The attacks we see are the ones that got through the precautions.

For the same reason, more people die in bathtubs than from polio. That doesn't mean the polio virus is less dangerous.

Hmmm. The Times (I think) ran a big cartoon feature portraying the bomber(s) as coward(s). Politicians still fall back on the same accusation. They may be psychopaths, mentally disturbed, losers, very stupid and ignorant, sadists, but they are not cowards.

They kill themselves. They believe they will go to paradise. This is what their religion teaches. If you die in killing the enemies of Allah you are blessed with heavenly rewards for eternity.

There is something wrong with their religion. We need to spell that out!

Something wrong here. This got published on the Guardian. (No Comments, of course!)

"Morrissey also appeared to suggest that politicians were afraid to refer to Abedi as an Islamist extremist."

“Manchester mayor Andy Burnham says the attack is the work of an ‘extremist’. An extreme what? An extreme rabbit?”
