Irishman threatens to kill British soldiers!
Nicola Smith, writing for The Sunday Times (November 15, 2009), tells us that some fanatical "Irishman wants to kill" British soldiers:
"I've already picked up a gun and done target practice to make myself familiar with weapons. The other day I learnt how to use an M-16 [rifle] in five hours," he said. "Next week, . . . I could be . . . fighting a British soldier."What's he got against the Brits? He doesn't like soldiers?
"Why is it such a big deal that I want to do this? Have I not got the right to do the same thing as a guy going into an army recruitment centre?" he said. "As long as we have no security, you will have no security. We'll kill and bomb you as you have killed and bombed our lands."Oh, I see. A militant Irish nationalist. One of those men with a long memory stretching all the way back to the 12th century, when the Anglo-Normans conquered Ireland. A man who would shout out with The Pogues, "A curse upon you Oliver Cromwell," along with the rest of the lines to "Young Ned of the Hill," as a call to remember the atrocities of that English Protestant Cromwell in his reconquest of a rebellious Ireland during the 17th century. A man who recalls the 1916 Easter Rising and the 1922 division of Ireland. He must be some hardline IRA member, ready at any moment to attack the British:
Ireland is also a legitimate target, according to Kelly. "Ireland has a US embassy so it is open to attack," he stated.Eh? Mr. Kelly wants to kill Irish citizens, too? And, apparently, Americans? What the hell is his motivation?
"I was living a cushy Western lifestyle, in a three-storey house with a swimming pool. I was your average Western racist."Good Lord, I'm nearly tempted to become an 'average' Western racist if that'll get me a three-story house with a pool! But what specifically turned Mr. Kelly against the West? Did he turn 'Third-Worlder' from some encounter with injustice?
In 2000 . . . he was serving time in . . . prison . . . for bootlegging.That sounds more like an encounter with justice. Somehow, that seems to have led to Mr. Kelly's turn against not only the British but even the Irish, the Americans, and the entire West!
I wish that I could explain what's gotten into this man's bitter heart, but for the life of me, I can't figure it out, so perhaps a few of my faithful readers could check out Ms. Smith's article and explain to the rest of us precisely what has so radically transformed Mr. Terry 'Khalid' Kelly.
