A horrible scene

London is under attack.

At least two people are reported dead this morning after a series of explosions blew up a bus and shut down the city's subway system. The culprit is still unclear, but the blasts' coordination and their occurrence during rush hour point to terrorism. Further evidence is that the attacks came during the ongoing G8 summit in Scotland and just one day after London was named to host the 2012 Summer Olympics. On the home front, Washington, D.C., officials have stepped up their subway security today in response.

My best wishes and condolences go to the British. May they find and severely punish whoever did this.

"The war on terror is on."

One of the few times his dim rhetoric actually appeals to me.

Thanks for your thoughts. Looks like it was al Qaeda but everything is still chaotic. Yesterday we were celebrating getting the 2012 Olympics. Today this happens.

A day before, Chirac was taking shots at the Brits; the next day, he was pledging solidarity.

Well, maybe, he still hates the Fins.
