|Britain's Sellerfield nuclear|
fuels processing plant
According to this news report, five men whose actions aroused suspicion outside Britain’s Sellafield nuclear plant were arrested on Monday, May 2.
The five men, who all live in London and are of Bangladeshi origin, were detained just hours after Mr. bin Laden’s death was announced.How does Britain's politically correct, white liberal-left respond? If former UK Ambassador Craig Murray's comment is indicative, they respond with a frenzied bout of self-hating racism.
According to the Civil Nuclear Constabulary (CNC), which polices Britain’s nuclear facilities, the men were stopped as part of a routine patrol near the perimeter of the Sellafield plant and were “unable to give a satisfactory account of their actions.” They were arrested under the Terrorism Act and questioned, then released without charge. ...
Thus, writes Murray, in a blog post entitled UK State Racial Hate Machinery Grinds On:
The five young men arrested for daring to be brown-skinned in Cumbria (aka behaving suspiciously near Sellafield nuclear plant) have all been released without charge - and had not, contrary to MSM lies, been taking photographs of the plant.So Murray is asserting that "to be brown-skinned in Cumbria" is to be the target of "The UK State Racial Hate Machinery." He also asserts that the MSM provided a lying justification for the arrests, i.e., that the men were taking photographs of the Sellerfield plant. However, Murray cites no such MSM report but links to another of his own blog posts, luridly entitled UK State Terror Resurgent, in which it is stated that the men were arrested for "possibly taking photographs of the Sellafield nuclear power station."
So Murray proves himself to be a liar and an incompetent one at that. But his purpose is clear.
You are to believe that some white British cops (Were they white? No one seems to have reported that, but Murray’s account is clearly intended to leave one in no doubt that they were white and that, by definition therefore, they were white supremacist racists) seeing a bunch of colored fellows decide to have some fun by arresting them and giving them a hard time.
But there is nothing in the news reports to justify such an account. The police appear to have acted appropriately in accordance with legislation intended to protect Britain and neighboring countries from sabotage at a plant that stores one hundred thousand kilograms of plutonium: enough to build thousands of Nagasaki-sized fission bombs; and enough of one of the most toxic substances known to man to cause, in the event of a 9/11-style terrorist attack, the greatest man-made catastrophe in the history of the world.
Let me say that again. The plant stores one hundred thousand kilograms of plutonium: enough to build thousands of Nagasaki-sized fission bombs; and enough of one of the most toxic substances known to man to cause, in the event of a 9/11-style terrorist attack, the greatest man-made catastrophe in the history of the world.
And it’s not difficult to envisage how such a catastrophe could be engineered. A shoulder-launched missile or a hijacked plane used as a missile could create a cloud of radioactive dust sufficient to make most of Britain, Europe and the Northern hemisphere uninhabitable — for all time.
The real evil that should be the focus of any radical account of this incident is the existence of the Sellerfield plant, which through its normal operations has polluted the Arctic Ocean, destroyed Norway's lobster fishery, made the Irish Sea one of the most radioactive bodies of water in the World, and deposited plutonium in children's teeth across the British Isles.
We've just seen how, at Fukushima, the Japanese have made a substantial area of their country uninhabitable and the Pacific Ocean radioactive through the poor design and insane placement of nuclear facilities. The British need to understand that Sellerfield poses a threat vastly greater than Fukushima.
To pretend that the arrest, questioning and prompt release of five men on suspicion of planning a horrendous act of terrorism was motivated by racism is contemptible. Whether the decision to make the arrests was based in part on racial profiling is uncertain, but if it was, so what? Under the circumstances, racial profiling would appear to have been entirely appropriate. After all, by Murray's own account, 9/11 was exclusively the work of brown men.
But Murrray, apparently, is ready to die for political correctness, and ready to take the country with him.
