"The world is not a lodging-house at Brighton, which we are to leave because it is miserable. It is the fortress of our family, with the flag flying on the turret, and the more miserable it is the less we should leave it."
-G. K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
This here blog is a glimpse or two or three at the condition of the 'fortress of our family' through the eyes Timothy Goddard, a Christian writer with an unhealthy interest in politics living in the Puget Sound area.
Get 'em Serbia. Nail 'em to the wall Serbia seems to be reacting rather well to the assassination of Zoran Djindjic, their first democratically elected Prime Minister: taking down the SOBs who did it, and their whole organization:
Police demolished the headquarters of a criminal group suspected of assassinating Serbia's prime minister and arrested several more underworld figures on Friday.
Wearing helmets, face masks and bulletproof vests, special police units with machine guns broke through wooden gates and doors to get inside the compound. The demolition continued into the night under floodlights.
This is much better news than this AP article purports to give, in Singapore's Straits Times entitled "Serb gangs now deadlier than ever."
When faced with aggression like this, Serbia has two paths: back down from Djindjic's war on organized crime, or do what it appears to be doing--stepping up the efforts and not resting until the people behind this are either dead or in prison. And not just the people directly behind it, either, but the organized crime groups who could and would do the same thing, given the chance. It'll be a hard road, but it's the right thing to do. Backing down in front of evil like this will only lead to more death. The only real option is to seek them out and bring them to justice.
Hmm... this line of reasoning sounds awfully familar. I wonder where I've heard it before?
