Terror Strikes

Terrorists staged multiple strikes against London's public transit systems this morning, including at Edgware Road, my old tube station. Several hundred people were injured, including dozens killed. A group claiming affiliation to al Qaeda has claimed blame for the attacks.

The Bush administration would have us believe that by fighting the terrorists "over there" (in Iraq), we are somehow safer "over here" (in America and our allies in the so-called "war on terror").

It seems to me that al Qaeda is quite capable of multi-tasking.

We are LESS SAFE because of the war in Iraq. We are training MORE terrorists, and giving them plenty of practice at killing Americans and our allies, so they can do it more efficiently when they come strike us at home.
