'The whole of the front of the building was covered with blood'
:cry:

Dr Buckman stayed helping the injured for four hours before going home at 4pm.

He said: "It was fortunate that the explosion happened at that location where there so many doctors around."

He said his training as a doctor meant that he just "got on with the job", but he said some colleagues and other people at the scene were "very upset".

Asked what he thought about the terrorists responsible for the attack, he said: "Whoever they are I don't think it takes great bravery to blow up large numbers of people on London Transport. None of these people have taken up arms against them or done them any harm."

1. And that is the point, isn't it?

inre: Iraq and its innocents?

It takes a doctor to underscore the unspoken message in this attack.

7. The problem with unspoken messages is
that they're unspoken.

It doesn't take great wisdom not to speak.

8. It doesn't take much wisdom to terrorize, either
Edited on Fri Jul-08-05 01:37 AM by lebkuchen
but the unspoken message is clear: the coalition's ass is being targeted.

Now is the time for the coalition to start verbalizing real alternatives to get attacks on all sides to stop, not by promoting more terror, as per "shock and awe."

However, that may take more wisdom than the leaders of the US and UK have available at this time.

2. Our leaders encourage this carnage, of course, but.....
"None of these people have taken up arms against them or done them any harm".........which is true. At the same time, they're not targeting Switzerland, are they?

6. Unfortunately, the innocent citizens
of a country have to pay for the actions of their leaaders -- Iraqis had to pay for Saddam (thanks Bush), and now Brits are paying for Tony Blair. It seems so obvious to me.
