Theresa May spoke on the steps of 10 Downing Street on Tuesday morning telling the nation: “All acts of terrorism are cowardly attacks on innocent people.” She stressed he abhorrence at the deliberate “targeting of innocent, defenceless children and young people.”
I agree with her.
But Mrs May, during the current election campaign, bluntly said she would press the button to launch British nuclear weapons. Her defence secretary, Sir Michael Fallon, went one mad step further, saying he would support a nuclear first strike.
If the respect by the prime minister for the families of the injured and those grieving for the loss of life of at least 22 young people in Manchester is to be really sincere, Mrs May and her defence secretary should withdraw their pledge to use nuclear weapons.
They are totally indiscriminate, and if launched, could kill not 22 people, but immolate and incinerate 220,000 children and adults, with millions injured and maimed.
