There is no war on terror …

This is a bit old now, but the quotes have been sitting in my ‘draft’ area for so long, and they are too good to sit on 🙂

‘There is no war on terror’
“The fight against terrorism on the streets of Britain is not a war. It is the prevention of crime, the enforcement of our laws and the winning of justice for those damaged by their infringement.” [1]
— Sir Ken Macdonald, UK DPP

‘There is no war on terror’
The criminal justice response to terrorism must be “proportionate and grounded in due process and the rule of law,” he said. “We must protect ourselves from these atrocious crimes without abandoning our traditions of freedom.” [1]
— Sir Ken Macdonald, UK DPP

They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” — Benjamin Franklin
