What Happened to You, Scotland? The Lockerbie Bomber, freed to ‘die with compassion’?

August 20, 2009

The Lockerbie Bomber, a TERRORIST (not a man-made disaster causer), freed to “die with compassion“? His VICTIMS, innocent all, didn’t have that luxury.

One of my greatest fears is that this slippery slope America is currently on will have us end up like you. I’m ashamed of my Scottish heritage today; I’m ashamed for my entire maternal family, who all still live there. What happened to your Country? A Country full of fierce, brave fighters; a Country once filled with people of strong backbone, always willing to fight and even die for Freedom.

“Scotland will forever remember the crime that has been perpetrated against our people and those from many other lands,” said Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill.

But he said: “Our justice system demands that judgment be imposed but compassion be available. Our beliefs dictate that justice be served, but mercy be shown.”

The decision comes amid thawing relations between Libya and Britain, which were arch-enemies in the 1980s and 1990s.

Libya has the largest proven oil reserves of any country in Africa, much of it still untapped, and British firms including BP and Shell have signed major exploration deals in the country in recent years.

Saad Djebbar, a lawyer who has worked with the Libyan government on the case, told BBC radio that freeing Megrahi would be a huge boost to relations between Britain and the whole Arab world.

“Britain and Scotland will grow in the eyes of the Arab states,” he said.

Did you do this for the oil? Or for the feel-goody “let’s all be friends” naively dangerous mindset you seem to embrace? Do you understand that Terrorists can’t be bought off with huggles and cookies?  They want to KILL YOU and will continue to do so no matter how infuriatingly and perilously sycophantic you act. In fact, they are likely laughing at you right now. And they will now treat Al-Mehrahi as a hero. Some justice.

Do you understand that this evil (yes, evil. Evil does exist, contrary to your childish beliefs) man served just over 11 days per murder?

Terrorist who killed 270 people: Freed to die in the loving bosom of his family. His innocent victims? Meh. Their lives weren’t worth more than 11 days each.

You sicken me. That is all.

My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims .. people to whom you’ve just flipped the bird and slapped in the face. Innocent people who did not “die with compassion”; They died in terror. And horrific pain. And they did so without being able to have so much as a “good-bye” to their loved ones.

That’s “Compassion”? Not so much.

UPDATE: Yes, he IS being greeted as a hero. Happy now? You absolute fools.* Shame on you.

Libya crowd cheers Lockerbie bomber

(UKPA) – 1 minute ago

Thousands of Libyan people have greeted Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi on his return to Tripoli.

Some displayed Megrahi’s picture on T-shirts while Libyan and Scottish flags were also being waved by members of the crowd at a military airport.

Megrahi, who has terminal cancer, was released on compassionate grounds by Scottish Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill.

** P.S. Stop getting your knickers in a bunch, Scottish folks … I don’t mean the Scottish people as a whole, with a broad brush; I’d be denigrating my ENTIRE family if I did. I am obviously referring to your *cough* esteemed *cough* Leaders and those on your Left, who believe in feel-goodiness hugs and kisses with Terrorists. And the buffoon of a Judge.

    The place I work at has a sister operation in Scotland. That nature of the work is such that we have several Cold War Era Scots beating around… The difference between them and the recent generations of Scots is stark…

    There is still what can only be described as a fierce independent pride in those old people… The younger iterations are generic euro-pussies… Sad that such a definitive culture has been assimilated like so many zombies in a 90’s Star Trek episode…

    Scotland needs to get it’s balls back… The world needs the character that they willfully tossed in the gutter…

    Sad

      Well said, as always.

      It makes me so sad (shaddup. I’m a girl)

      Now, the Judge or “justice” who made the decision was NOT elected. However, he is only one symptom of a pervasive illness .. more like epidemic .. in the UK and Europe as a whole. And THAT blame lies with everyone, really

    If you have to fellate yourself publicly in order to convince the world that the heinous thing you’re doing is “compassionate,” it probably isn’t the right thing to do.

      Well, that’s the first time I’ve thought of fellating oneself in a negative manner. Kudos, sir!

      And, agreed.

    Well said. Terrorists do not care when we or our “allies” capitulate and bend over for them. It just reaffirms their belief that they can make demands and they will be met. The world would be better off if we did not treat with terrorists in any form for any reason.

    To give this man his freedom when he should be dying alone in jail, forgotten, is another crime perpetrated on these already heavily burdened families.

      Precisely. And it’s capped off by his being greeted as a returning HERO… greeted with cheering crowds. THAT is their response. Oh yeah, and you know, more acts of terror.

    Except that you basically are.

    At the very least, BP lobbying the British Gov’t for a prisoner release raises the question of what can be considered business activity. For BP to have lobbied with an oil deal outstanding represents at least the appearance of a conflict of interest. Jack Straw has admitted that the oil deal was a factor in the British government signing off on the prisoner release.
