Brit. Parliament member said bombing was: unspeakable depravity


I think what Blair and smirk are doing to Iraq is unspeakable depravity.

1. Has a single media member made that obvious "sandbox" connection?
Tit for tat?

3. Blowing up innocent people in a subway IS unspeakable depravity.
Nothing can justify this.

9/11 happened before Iraq was anything more than a gleam in the neocons eyes.

Bush and Blair promised to get the people who attacked on 9/11. They let them go and went off chasing dreams of empire in Iraq. Thousands of people have died as a result.

Now they've attacked in London.

I think it was Gandhi who said that if everyone followed the "eye for and eye" arguement the entire world would go blind.

5. Um, why do you think Britain can invade Iraq on a pretext
and its not okay for the people or its allies who were attacked not to fight back?

How is this more depraved than Shock And Awe(tm)?

Just asking

6. The point of my post is that neither is justifiable.
Those weren't Iraqis who attacked in London. The most likely culprits were Al Queda.

This sort of escalation was a predictable consequence of Bush and Blair's Iraq war. I believe that it was Hosni Mubarak who said that invading Iraq would create a thousand Bin Ladens.

Understanding the motivation does not make the attack justifiable.

7. How do you think the majority of Iraqis view the attack on London?
I don't know the answer to the question. I would guess a substantial number, maybe a majority, are glad that there was a counter-attack on one of the countries that attacked them.

I'm assuming there will be no polls of Iraqis, first because it's impossible for westerners or leave the Green Zones, and second because the administration doesn't want to know the answer.
