Timing of attack - trying to derail Live 8 effect
I don't know what the G8 would have done for Africa, but at least poverty was high on the agenda.

Poverty in the 3rd world threatens us all. There is a whole generation growing up in Africa without parents, without a chance to be educated without basic medical care. They will know that the West sat back and let it happen.

These people will be primed to be recruited by terrorist organizations. You can only take so much abuse before you look for a way to lash out.

It makes you wonder.

1. The other bad effect
The timing has is it has taken the news focus off the Rove-Plame investigation. Now he will be able to slither off in the shadows.

3. It has many more than that....
You know, I don't believe for a motherfucking second that the US did not have a bit of knowledge in this. Bushco is in trouble, Americans are getting pissed off because the Brits aren't having anymore of this lying bullshit from Blair, but you know what? Best way to ring'em back in, is to scare'em to death.

Then I see that jackass's smirking face: "They have the resolve, I have." It was still about him. Look at me, I can take away your fear. If there is an anti-christ, it is Bush and the fundies here don't fucking see it.

Now we have to deal with Hannity, Coulter and their sociopathic brethren bashing Democrats, blaming us and Joe Sixpack believing every fucking minute of it.

It must be nice to have the poewr and the control to withhold information, who gives a flying fuck if it is 50 lives in London, thousands and thousands in Baghdad and thousands and thousands of our OWN.

Nothing is more dangerous that a man with connections to the most powerful groups in the world: Carlysle and Big Oil.
