Let's drag up another old lefty trope and beat it to death again. Whilst reading the story I linked to below I was reminded of one when I read this bit (emphasis mine):

Most of the suspects are second or third generation British citizens of Pakistani descent whose families hailed from war-torn Kashmir. U.S. officials believe the 29 members were divided into multiple cells and planned to break into small groups to board the nine planes.

That line about the citizenship of the suspected bombers brought to mind this smug old lefty trope used to criticize the decision to invade Iraq (an example of which you can find here; NOTE: I have inserted the expletive "meh" to indicate smugness):

Meh! Most of the 9/11 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia! If this is a war on "terrorism" why didn't we invade Saudi Arabia? Meh! Meh! Mehhhhhh!

Since moonbats are smarter than you or me (just ask one - they'll tell you. Or better yet, don't ask them; they'll still tell you), and because this must obviously be an example of the type of "nuanced thinking" that they say is so desirable in a leader, I think we need to employ this philosophy to the latest front in the GWOT just discovered across the pond.

We should begin bombing England immediately.
