George Galloway
Says Assassination
Of PM Blair
Would Be

George Galloway smoking. A cigar isn't always just a cigar.

What the hell? Isn't it against the law for him to say such a thing?

The Respect MP George Galloway has said it would be morally justified for a suicide bomber to murder Tony Blair.

In an interview with GQ magazine, the reporter asked him: "Would the assassination of, say, Tony Blair by a suicide bomber - if there were no other casualties - be justified as revenge for the war on Iraq?"

Mr Galloway replied: "Yes, it would be morally justified. I am not calling for it - but if it happened it would be of a wholly different moral order to the events of 7/7. It would be entirely logical and explicable. And morally equivalent to ordering the deaths of thousands of innocent people in Iraq - as Blair did."

The Labour MP Stephen Pound, a persistent critic of Mr Galloway during previous controversies, told The Sun that the Respect MP for Bethnal Green and Bow in east London was "disgraceful and truly twisted".

He said: "These comments take my breath away. Every time you think he can't sink any lower he goes and stuns you again. It's reprehensible to say it would be justified for a suicide bomber to assassinate anyone."

Mr Galloway yesterday made a surprise appearance on Cuban television with the Caribbean island's Communist dictator, Fidel Castro - whom he defended as a "lion" in a political world populated by "monkeys".

Mr Galloway shocked panellists on a live television discussion show in Havana by emerging on set mid-transmission to offer passionate support for Castro. Looking approvingly into each others' eyes, the pair embraced.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out. It seems to me a civilized nation can not have people in high office advocating for each others assassination. Of course, he said he did not support such action, but saying it would be justified, he did, indeed provide support for the idea.

George Galloway: A fine line between clever and stupid.

There is a very fine line between the two notions, if you ask me. In fact, one might need a electron microscope to find the line.

George Galloway is a dangerous man. England, and the world itself, would be better off without him.

Hey, I'm not saying someone should kill him, but, if someone did, the world would be a better place.
