The London bombings

After the bombings, the first reaction of some in London was to blame PM Tony Blair and the UK's participtation in the invasion of Iraq.

But even some of those people are now reassessing. Here's one example at Harry's Place, a London blog, in which Harry posts a letter from a former "flatmate" who takes Harry to task for blaming Blair & the government.

The former flatmate's got Harry's thinking straight now.

An Austin-based blog led me there -- Richard Lawrence Cohen. The comments under his post today are interesting and lead to other relevant links and thoughts regarding the London bombings.

None of this will be "news" to many of you. But it's good to keep your eye on the big picture: these Islamicists are crazy, ruthless bastards who want to kill us. Don't forget that.

For an historical restrospective, if you need it, read Roborant.

As I have mentioned before, Scooter & I have some associates in London. We didn't learn all were OK til nearly 24 hours after the bombings. They are fine. But they described some ghastly scenes. People emerging from the London "tubes" without limbs, and so forth.

So remember, this is what these maniacs want to do to us.

I remember shortly after 9-11 a young neighborhood girl, only a 2nd or 3rd grader at the time, asked Scooter why the 9-11 killers didn't like us.

Scooter tried to explain it to her in 2nd grade terms: We have better bikes and toys and stuff than them; that's why they don't like us.

Yep, these fuckers don't like our modern ways. Our bikes. Beliefs. Government. Clothes. Whatever. Doesn't matter if you're a Christian or a Muslim or a Jew. You don't believe what they believe, they wanna kill you.
