93. The two are inextricably intertwined
Of course, we all feel for the victoms of the tragedy, but you can be quite sure that there will be more of them in the future and an ever-escalating cycle of violence producing more and more and more innocent victims as long as our and Britain's approach to the rest of the world is to "crusade against the evildoers." Please notice that countries which have not attempted to impose their narrow, moralistic views onto the rest of the world are not being attacked by terrorists. I do not suggest that the victims of the attacks in London in any way deserved to be attacked, but attacks of this variety were certainly the predictable consequence of British and US policy. And as long as we choose to view such attacks as acts of incomprehensible, irrational evil, totally unrelated to the benificent policies of our governments' charitable practices of cruise-missiling civilians, we're never going to understand why the ranks of al Qaeda continue to swell and the cycle of violence grows ever more bloody. Attempting to disconnect the two is tantamount to inviting more reprehensible attacks just like today's.
