Personally, I think it's inflammatory to label your thread inflammatory.

7. I read your message earlier, before it was removed, and it seemed
perfectly innocent to me. The current mods are either too eager, too discerning, or too inexperienced. I had a perfectly reasonable comment removed, as well. Why I'm going to quit posting for now.

2. Well, it is because Iraq is a war zone, and London isn't supposed to be.
I get your point, and it's a valid one. It is just as bad, and people are just as dead in both places.

4. No, no no no no. It's PROGRESS in Iraq, you know, the "catastrophic
success" that it is.

5. I'm diggin' that catastrophic success - 473 dead last month alone...
I wonder why that's not a calamity of major proportions? We're talkin' 10x the number dead in London - and London won't likely see another terrorist attack for many years. Hmmmm...
