The Face of Evil! 21 December, 1988, Scotland's 911, I was there!

Not sure how this one got dated today, I wrote it a long time ago.

A cool day in Scotland, like most days in Scotland it was hazy, I had sold my prized 1969 Chevelle Pan Am 103Convertible for air fare to chase after a Scottish girl I had met on the beach in Florida. She was a tall blond who had been a ballerina and gymnast. You can imagine my excitement!

Foolish, 22 and enamoured with a tall blond, with an alluring accent I set out to see the world across the pond.

I arrived in late December, it seemed to rain everyday, the whole place was so green, so wet and so beautiful.  I nearly killed us both learning how to drive on the wrong side of the road, seems looking left while turning right is a bad idea in the UK, but old habits die hard.

I had been staying in Port Glasgow, a relatively small burg on the western edge of Scotland.  The news came that a horrible accident had occurred, many people in a small town south of us had been hurt by a plane that crashed.

As the news developed we all sat glued to the televisions, video of the trauma unfolded before our eyes. wreckage, bodies and chaos as the dead were being taken from the scene. I learned that many of the casualties were my fellow Americans.

I had never seen such carnage, I had never felt such fear. Fear, that is what the terrorist want us to have, Fear, that is what they feed on, what they live and die for.

As I watched what unfolded many years later on 11 September 2001 I felt the same sentiment, only this time it was with resolve. This time we were going to make them pay! They had come to America, and by God we were coming to get them!

Scotland is a different kind of country, no more proud and vengeful, no longer patriotic and strong. The days of Sir William Wallace have long wained and they have become lap dogs of the socialism that defile the United Kingdom today.

Their Plaid skirts are more indicative of a catholic school girl than a proud Scotsman!

Today they released the face of evil, the dirty little Muslim bastard that slaughtered 270 innocent people in the name of Allah! Today in the name of Compassion they turned him loose! Loose to prey upon innocents, loose to the admiring cries of evil, adoring, murderous fans like Kadhafi !

Compassion, they call it, where the hell was the compassion when this evil demon set out to kill hundreds of Americans, where the hell was compassion when this evil demon set a bomb on a plane with children and women?

Scotland; you cowardice bastards, you have succumbed to your enemies, you have been been emasculated by the Muslim hordes that invade you and defile your soil!

Rise up, Scotland! take back your heritage, take back your land, Scotland you are better than this, you Abdel Baset al-Megrahideserve better than the socialist state that has been thrust upon you!

You were once a proud people, This is disgraceful!

So here is the face of EVIL Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, an evil murdering Muslim Dog!

May he rot in HELL!

Had I the opportunity I would kill this evil dog myself! You cannot imagine the images seared in my mind of what this animal did! I was there, I saw it!

You cannot negotiate with terrorist, you must destroy them! You cannot appease animals, murderers and wild dogs, you must destroy them! Appeasement and negotiations are seen as frailties by these animals, you must seek to destroy them or be destroyed by them!

Ben, I agree, it is hard to show compassion on someone that showed no compassion as he killed 270 people in a cowardly way!  I can think of no more cowardly act than to set a bomb and stand by in safety while it maims and destroys life.  I agree that he should have never been released, his sentence should have been carried to the end.  

My fear, is the same wave of apathy that you described Scotland as being immersed in is taking a strong hold here in our great land.  Too many have forgotten the fear and anger of our own 9-11, and have decided that there is nothing worth fighting for.  I disagree with them, and hope that the silent majority that makes this nation great will wake up and make their voices heard in every election until those that would enslave us in Socialism are defeated and shown for Socialists that they are.

We need to remember what has made this the Greatest Nation on Earth, and remember that there was a reason that most of our ancestors left Europe and Asia to move here, because they found out what the Native Americans already knew, this is the Land of Opportunity and the Greatest Nation on Earth.

Ben, the Scots used to be a proud people. They were when I was there in 1977.

Hi Ben....Are you sure you aren't related to Wallace, you have enough passion to be.  I have the same fears, our memories can be short.  Around my neck I wear a medallion - one side has the Work Trade buildings,the Statue of Liberty, and our Flag as the Hudson River, on the other side is a depiction of the First Responders. I had it made after 9-11 and I wear it every day.  I wear it in memory of those who have fallen and as a reminder of what can happen again.  Forgetting that day is not an option for me, either is complacency.
