Another string of arson fires in a Washington neighborhood, demonstrates that radical environmentalists are increasingly turning to violence as a means to pursue their ends.
Ecoterror link eyed in Wash. fires
WOODINVILLE, Wash. - Fires gutted three multimillion-dollar model homes in a Seattle suburb on Monday, and authorities found a sign purportedly left by eco-terrorists that mocks claims that the homes were environmentally friendly.
"Built Green? Nope black!" said the spray-painted sign that bore the initials of the radical environmental group Earth Liberation Front.
Crews removed explosive devices found in the homes, said Fire Chief Rick Eastman of Snohomish County District 7. The FBI was investigating the fires as a potential domestic terrorism act, said FBI spokesman Rich Kolko in Washington, D.C.
No injuries were reported in the fires, which began before dawn. The sheriff's office estimated damage at $7 million. In addition to the three homes destroyed, two sustained smoke damage.
As is known with the methodology of thugs, one form of violence begets the next in an escalating surrender to brutality as a substitute for intellectual persuation. How long will it be before their complete abandon of reason presents them with murder as an acceptable means to their ends? Such is the cycle of fascists and terrorism, and these radical environmentalists are no different than the Sturmabteilung of decades past.
Last night it was abandoned homes that burned in Woodinville, Washington. Next week, perhaps it will be families immolated to make the animals' point.
