172. I find this sort of comment bizarre!
Look at the statement made by the group claiming responsibility. It specifically says that the bombings are in retaliation for the occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan. That was also the case for the bombings in Spain.

The Spaniards threw out the government responsible for joining Bush's illegal invasion. These London bombings are intended to produce a similar effect in England--to force England to withdraw its troops from Iraq and Afghanistan.

The bombings are evil, and innocents have died. Yes, blame the terrorists.

But don't pretend that this is not closely related to the choice made by Bush (and acquiesced to by Blair) to attack a sovereign country and bomb its innocent people into the stone age.
