6. In two to three days after the grieving for loved ones and friends
...and families, I would think that there will be a major uproar against the established party in power which happens to be Labour and Tony Blair as the leader. That political house of cards will be coming down. Then the question will be, what will Bush do?
but it's not like we're going to overthrow the government here, is it? A time of reckoning is on the horizon, and this might finally be the thing that brings down Tony Blair as Prime Minister, but the Labour party will still be in power.
As far as Bush is concerned, I will echo another UK poster on another thread here today: we aren't thinking about George Bush. Fuck him. We are thinking about our own dead and wounded and where we go from here. Our elected leaders would do well to take note.
what would keep BushCo or Blair from simply stating that al-zarqawi is connected, true or not, and repeating it and drumming the war drums until it sinks in...I'd really like to think that British citizens will rise up as one and slay the Blair govt, once and for all (any excuse to repeat one of Lewis Black's funny lines)
19. Same as always-- London's been a terror targets since the 1960s
The IRA is still active in Britain, and occassionally bombs a pub, or a tube station, or phones in a threat, too. Terror attacks are nothing new to Londoners, and they've lived with them going back to the days of the Nazi Blitz.
As always, they will carry on in their own way. Stiff upper lip, trying to prevent it in the future-- but going forward like they almost always do, and remaining ever vigilant.
