London Attack

I just wanted to post that my heart goes out to the victims of the attack in London, and to their friends and families.

I’m not going to say much more about it, because I believe that sensationalism and hand-wringing feeds the terrorists. But I do want to express my sorrow.

I think that, were I a Londoner, or were a terrorist attack to happen in my region, this would express my sentiments pretty accurately.

My message to them about Bush would be much the same.

…we’ve got news for you. We don’t much like our government ourselves, or what they do in our name. But, listen very clearly. We’ll deal with that ourselves. […] And we’re going to go about our lives. We’re going to take care of the lives you ruined. And then we’re going to work. And we’re going down the pub.

Screw off, terrorist assholes.You have failed to terrorize me.

Who else is with me?

Thanks for turning me on to the London Reveiw News. I particularly like the sense of humour displayed here: http://www.lnreview.co.uk/lnre.php

You have a point. I just hate thinking about all those lives ruined.

Agreed. But wailing and nashing of teeth is precisely what they want. That and actions like what the U.S. is doing. It helps them polarize and mobilize.
