If this is al-Qaeda or a copy cat, this is the price of letting Bin Laden
If this is al-Qaeda or a copy cat, this is the price of letting Bin Laden and his network run free for the past four years. The distraction in Iraq has become a huge training ground for bin Laden's compatriot. If there's no perpetrators of this horrible attack connected to Iraq since the war, I'll be stunned.

Mr Bush and Mr Blair have shown the world that attacking the west may not get you hunted down. Nothing is more dangerous to world order than that.

I don't waste my time reading the crazy shit from conspiracy nuts who think this is a distraction from recent bad news from the American right wing. Terrorists serve their own sick purposes. But the fact is that the administration had the responsibilty to track those monsters down and shut down their networks and just hasn't made this a priority. They set their eyeballs on Iraq and made thousands of allies for our worst, deadliest enemies. That's what London shows.

I pray that the deaths in London really are as contained as they seem. The highest number I've heard so far is 20. That would be a miracle, but all I can do from thousands of miles away is pray for miracles and speak out where I think the people responsible for preventing this sort of thing have simply and negligently no done their jobs.

3. I'd say wilful negligence rather than incompetence
I'm a little tired of the cutesy acronyms. Just last week I was thinking how glad I was that the stupidities of LIHOP and MIHOP weren'r being bantered about anymore. Please let's not revive that shit. Let's just focus on petitioning the Bush administration and Congress to clean up their mess in Iraq, refocus on our real, now much stronger, enemies, and quit killing people over oil.

The most sickening part of this is how much it's a fulfilment of exactly why I opposed the invasion of Iraq.

4. Here is an interesting little bit of information for you..
Rumors have been floating about for some time that the US intended to attack Iran in June or July. Conveniently, this attack come right in the middle of that time period.

Now, if you see the US or UK governments try to tie this to Iran, then you will know that this attack was planned by the Bush cabal, just like the Sept 11 attack.

If I'm wrong, then nothing changes, if I'm right, then the war on Iran will begin soon, and confirmation that these attacks were MIHOP will be obvious.
