Britain to Blame for Tunisia Terrorism, Says Country’s PM

Britain is partly responsible for terrorist activity in Tunisia because it created lawless chaos in neighbouring Libya, the Tunisian Prime Minister has said.

Habib Essid blamed the Western intervention that brought down Muammar Gadaffi in 2011 for destabilising the region and leaving Tunisia vulnerable to terror attacks like that one at Sousse this year, which left 30 British tourists dead.

    What’s his angle? I expect that he’s seen Britain paying for fences in France, so he wants Britain to pay for his new fences on the border with Libya (once he’s arranged for his cousin to get the contract).

      Do you see some pattern, some link, anything to point us toward solving the mystery? I sure can’t. Let’s see, some of these attacks were in Asia, others in Europe or North America. Some were attacks on schools, others embassies, others were attacks on planes, trains or ships. Wait – I know: the perpetrators were all male (they were, weren’t they?) Hmm, I might be on to something ….
      (sarc. off).

        I think the Beslan school attack had a couple of women in the terrorist group. Then there are the famous black widow bombers who have attacked in Russia. Israel has had a few horrific attacks by women suicide bombers as well. I’m not counting the recent attacks by forced young girls who detonate in markets sent by Al Shabaab or Boko Haram. As a wild guess, probably 98% or 99% male attacks over the years.

          I was of course, making a (rather poor!) attempt at humor. That said, I do seem to remember seeing a while ago a world map on which the percentage of males 18-35 was overlaid with some measure of violence in the associated countries. You can imagine the result – rather striking positive correlation. Though there are obviously a lot of factors that go into violence, but being young and male is a pretty darn good predictor. Being muslim is definitely another.

      You missed the attacks they made to their people which it is higher than the West.

    It is a simple fact that Colonel Gaddafi spoke about selling oil for gold Dinars. Boom his country was suddenly beset by useful Wahabbi idiots and so NATO had to freedom the shit out of Libya creating a failed state. You can see Islam for
    the totalitarianism but also know that the Western banking elites own our democracies and that the centre of that structure is the US petro $. It is alittle trickier but no less true, Saddamed fucked with the petro $ in 2000 selling Arab oil for Euros and look what happened. If you cannot get that then you miss perhaps the most potent globalizing force that is destroying the West’s real economies and enforcing a one world of multiculty debt. Oh and even though it may be uncomfortable many of those banking interests do have deep Jewish roots, what was the name of that bank that screwed Greece, that’s right Goldman Sachs.
    PS I wonder where Libya’s gold went perhaps the same place that Ukraine’s did.

      Saved your judeophobia until last.

      • Rozza

        What Judeophobia? Oh that’s right the comment was deleted because multi-valent geopolitical reality and understanding is just a bit much here. As proven by your ad-hominem and this comment blogs dependance on censoring comments. They hate us foe our freedom, smells like irony.

      Babool, why are all the sand monkeys killing each other over there? International Banking Politics? Are Joooos pulling on all the elbows of the apes’ trigger finger front leg?

      • Rozza

        Wow, what a sophisticated understanding of the worlds most complex geopolitical area you have sir.

    Blacksmith’s list is great! I do see a pattern…hmmm.

    However, given that Muslims t have a high number of savages per capita, is it a good strategy to destabilize their governments in the hope of unleashing democracy? I say no.

  • I read that headline and honestly assumed it was referring to Cameron.
