Just in case you haven't heard, there has been a terrorist attack in London. Three explosions occurred in the Tube and one on a double decker bus. Once again, terrorists have shown themselves to be cowards. What is the definition of a coward except one that attacks only when he can not be seen or discovered? One who attacks with no fear of being discovered because he can not.
Being an Anglophile, this hits close to my heart. So far 40 people have died. Some of the Tube stations that were attacked are places that I have been, and I have ridden on a double decker bus. And yet, the solution, according to the news media, is that all of this happened because of the unpopularity of Tony Blair. If Tony would just talk a little nicer and get out of Bush's mess than these things wouldn't happen. Malarkey! Unfortunately there has always been a constituent in this world that desires to destroy Western Civilization. Ans, unfortunately, in recent history (think last 1000 years or so) this constituent have been Islamists. No, I am not saying that every Muslim is a terrorist, but most (99.99%) have been Muslims. When the Koran, the foundation of a religion, allows for terrorism against any who are not Muslims then what do we expect? Exactly what has happened in the last 1000 years. Cowardice.
