Seriously. Again?



Seems that there have been more explosions on London's public transportation system. However they appear to have been much smaller. Hard to tell with the U.S. coverage, though. We're more concerned that there is "terror" than the injured. For some reason, we don't humanize acts of destruction and terrorism unless they happen on our own soil.

It's because we are isolationist assholes.

Rich, you are there. Sort of. At least closer than we are. Let's hear a report.

I'm leaving this up, if for no other reason than the similarities between titles of the two posts.

I'm a little off my game this morning, hence the double-topic post. I'm at home dying.

I am also melodramatic.

Yeah, we are more alike than we care to admit sometimes, aren't we?

According to The Guardian, Scotland Yard has received no reports of injuries.

The article also says that several tube passengers struggled with a man who dropped off a black bag on the Oval train, but he got away.

Ironically, Blair was scheduled to meet with police chiefs and intelligence officials today to discuss the aftermath of the last attacks.

Not much to report, really. Seems like a bunch of amateurs let off some squibs on the tube. Whatever. Hardly counts as "terror" in my book!

Not a good time to be an arab with a rucksack in London, though.

Well, according to Fox News, "Londonistan" is practically teeming with militant Islamists. Certainly Blair needs to do something about it! After all, I'm sure Londoners can go without their falafel-fix in the name of security, right?

"Fox News"?????????
A closest conservative perhaps? ;-)
i pit them as either wannabes or it is a probe tactic al-Qaeda is using to learn about security in the outer areas of London

Yeah, Kurt, you know me--I'm all about the Fox News and Ann Coulter. My heroes! :)
