There goes the latest excuse for being in Iraq.
"We're fighting them over there so we won't have to fight them here."

What's the next excuse going to be.

2. The reality is ...
Because we are fighting them (the wrong them) there, it won't be long before we will have to fight them (all of them) here.

Cheers

3. Freedom is on the March, yo.
And they hate us for our freedoms, in case you've forgotten.

5. there
have been attacks long before 2001 and there will continue for a long time. The nature of the attacks may/will change but there are some who will attempt to mold the world using these types of attacks.

7. bush and blair....
have created the greatest terrorist training camp imaginable. The entire world will sadly reap the "benefits" of their brazen miscalculation. bush shoulders much of the blame for this attack, blair, for being bush's poodle and yes man. The people of London and the rest of the world are the innocent pawns in their disturbing, idiotic game. Of course, tens of thousands of innocent Iraqis have felt the result of these insipid policies.

Of course we can't expect bush to care at all. He wanted to slake his massive thirst for revenge on Saddam at any cost, and he's done that. The collateral damage is of no consequence for him.

9. And in the end
we're all just pawns to these people. The loss of life is only as meaningful as it is politically meaningful. As Ms Sheehan saw and commented on. Those are our leaders, the ones most ready to murder us.

Peole wonder why I'm a libertarian. Exactly stuff like this. Governments like power, and run over the people, whenever they can. The more power we afford them, the most we risk losing. Our constitution was the only thing we had, and they ripped it up easily with one terrorist act.

It's not that I don't believe in paying taxes, or social programs, or hate the government in all forms. It's just that the more you trust them, the more they take advantage. NEVER trust government.

10. The answer is clear:
"Mah fullow Amurcans, we must tackle these Al-Qurda killers by INVADING LONDONSHIRE!"

Sorry, just needed to let off steam.
