56. Damn Damn Damn

I spent my high school years in London (Highgate) and returned between 20 and 21 to live right between two of these blasts (Aldwych and Liverpool Street). On behalf of millions of Americans who love that city and its spirit, my heart goes out to all the victims and their families.

And my rage goes out to the killers, but also to the masters of war who made this incident inevitable. Hearing Bush seize this moment to yet again spout off about our "ideology of compassion" and "their" "ideology of hate" makes me puke. Stop it, Mr. President. I'm not saying these bastards who bomb cities shouldn't be brought to justice. But we've become bastards who bomb cities too, and it's pathetically cynical to act like we're just compassionate westerners fighting a cruel barbarian horde. War is ugly. On all sides.

Damn damn damn. Here we go again.
