Impeachment? DSM? PlameGate? How Dare You!
We are now in mourning with our "allies."

Everything else should be forgotten.

Never mind the fact that there have been numerous terrorist attacks around the world with far more casualties. I mean no disrespect to Britain when I say this, but why is what happened there more important than what has happened in other countries?

I am deeply saddened by the loss of life and limb that have resulted from the attacks. But this should NOT eclipse the corruption that is becoming evident right here in our own homeland.

1. I agree


Bush wants us to not focus on his evil deeds.

While we are mourning, he is ploting.

We are soldiers too.
We use our thoughts and words to help others understand what is happening in our world.

IMO, we see wrong and try to right it.

We can not stop this battle because there is a battle in London.


A big reason why the battles are continuing around the globe is that we are stopping to do what Bush wants us to do...forget about ROVE etc. and approve his agenda for taking over the world.

2. I wonder if what happened in London...

would have been prevented had King George and Tony B used their resources to go after Bin Laden and al-Qaeda, instead of fighting "the wrong war, in the wrong place, at the wrong time?"

Edit to add: The American people cannot allow our sympathies for the victims of 7/7, to "justify" Iraq. I hear an "I told you so," coming from the RW, and the fact is WE are the ones who have the "I told you so" argument. We told you that we should have focused on al-Qaeda and Bin Laden and those who attacked us on 9/11, but NOOO, Bush had to lie us into an illegal, immoral war in Iraq. This guy has got to go.

3. Good question. It's one that should be at the forefront of this
tragedy.

4. I agree.
Every Democrat that has a microphone shoved in his/her face should be asking that question, and demanding an answer. And, I want to know if the US will stand with Great Britain, should they decide that we need to get out of Iraq and go after BL and the real terrorists---almost 4 years it has been since Shrub said we will not rest until we have BL dead or alive. Just another lie.

5. And of course a bit later he said he didn't care where OBL was.
Hope they take the opportunity to remind everybody of that.
