London Bridge Terror Attack: Human Tragedy, Hypocrisy, Double Standards, Double Dealing

By Felicity Arbuthnot – Global Research, June 05, 2017

“Nothing justifies killing of innocent people.” Tony Blair, CNN, 15th January 2015. 

Perhaps the attack which killed seven and injured forty eight – twenty one critically – on a balmy Saturday evening on London Bridge and nearby Borough Market, a popular area of cafes, bars and restaurants, could be described in one word: “blowback.”    

The lesson could not be starker. In December last year, after the Berlin Christmas lorry attack, a contributor on an ISIS forum called for more attacks with the comment: “Muslim countries will not be the only ones that are sad.” (1)

    Notice too how the lives of innocent victims of western blowback or manufactured crisis are valuable compared to the innocent victims of deliberate western slaughter. When a country’s citizens are eager to accept that the deliberate bombings and killings of others are justified under nefarious pretexts, are these very citizens not then equally responsible for the actions of their govt? Affecting a deliberately obtuse view to deflect from truthful reality in order to justify one’s selfish and entitled lifestyle does not make these victims innocent.

    Blowback or manufactured crisis? Aren’t the two one and the same? The deliberate actions of psychopathic barbarian govts?
