They just got a different tool to use than we do: They kill innocent lives to achieve objectives. That's what they do. And they're good.

db: We went over to our favourite kebab place tonight - Ranoush Juice in Edgware Road. We parked up round by Connaght Square - home to the war criminal and former PM Anthony Blair.
