    I'm just getting caught up with the breaking news.

    Folks, we're looking at our fellow brothers in arms own 9-11. I'm stunned. I'm also in heartfelt unity with our closest ally, the British. :salute:

    The total at the moment stands at three double decker Bus attacks, and three seperate subway attacks, obviously a planned and timed attempt by a major organization. Another attack just happened in the Russel Square as I write this update. This is crazy ass news. Is anyone else up this hour?

    There are only two perpetrators possible in my mind... fanatic anti-capitalists or fanatic Islamic extremists. Or an unholy combination of both, plus a sprinking of extreme rightist anti-zionist organations.

    I am up....and can't believe this!

    I suppose now we'll be hearing that the Brits brought this on themselves....

    I do think it's about time we got real serious about dealing with the Arab/Muslim piece of the planet. I know it is presumptuous of me to think the fanatical Islamic regime had anything to do with it....any one want to put money on it?

    Tony Blair was just on to give a public statement. His speech was outstanding. There are now perhaps 9 total attacks. And confirmed deaths now standing at '2' is no doubt something which will be only a fraction of the final tally. I find nothing to gloat about over the other UK trolls who I've argued with online before about this inevitable threat to our unified culture. I just want every person on that island to know the full force of the USA stands behind them, and that our traditional ties go deep.

    No question we need to support the UK just as they have been supporting us.

    Do you think this will be a wake-up call to Europe about the reality of terrorism, or do you think they will just go on thinking that if you appease these guys and give them no trouble, they will leave you alone?

    If you are commuting in Washington DC this morning, FYI:

    I wouldn't let that stop me from going to work, though.

    I honestly think the rest of Europe will shake their collective heads and say "See what happens when you support the United States???? If the UK had been more like us (France, Germany, Spain, et al) they wouldn't be having this problem!"

    I surely hope not, that would mean the bulk of the people in these countries lack any common sense. Especially those in Spain, who've already been subject to an attack and already must know the shame of being a coward instead of defiant in the face of an attack.

    I feel the mettle of Britain is much stronger than those of our other estewhile allies. I can already feel that from Blairs first speech. The man will truly rally the majority of Britain behind the war on terror, like Bush did with America.
