"If We Don't Fight the Terrorists There, We'll Have to Fight Them Here"
...to paraphrase the President's and the other chicken hawks' rationale for fighting this crazy war in Iraq.

I'm sure that the victims and their families in London will be comforted by these words tonight.

4. I'm hoping that Brits and Americans don't fall for the fallibility of
their leaders and give them a sympathy boost in the polls. Just as Osama did * a favor four years ago, those responsible for the attack on London could help Blair and his friends in the MSM put one over on the British public.

Shock, fear, anger--then forgiveness. That's what *I'm* afraid of. When the public's emotions are manipulated by their leaders and a massive propaganda campaign, reason is nowhere to be found, and progress to a higher consciousness is never made.

5. Because we fought them there, we felt them here. Bushwar 1 caused it all.
If there had been no bushwar 1, there'd be no 9/11, 3/11 or 7/7 attacks. And certainly no second bush term.
