Making the rounds I'm sure but this one jangled my nerves a bit. Pat gets a no-prize for bringing us news that the Usual Suspects have stepped forward:
A group calling itself "The Secret Organization of al-Qaida in Europe" posted a claim of responsibility for Thursday's blasts in London, saying they were in retaliation for Britain's involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan.
This one didn't sound like the IRA for sure. As I recall at any rate, they historically have had a tendency to call bombs in just before they went off. I can't remember them trying anything this big before either, but the IRA was at its most active when I was paying more attention to Star Wars than to the real sort. Brits are welcome to correct.
If this were Spain, Blair would be out on his butt within the week. But this is most definitely not Spain. Our hearts go out to the citizens of the UK. Time to roll up our sleeves and go back to the work of putting these maniacs where they can do no more harm.
Oh, and in case the title seems misleading, that's not what I'm saying to the UK. It's what (I fervently hope at any rate) we'll be saying to the terrorists.
update: Lair points out the true "we are all..." motto for these times. Too bad at least one British politician still isn't getting it. I'm not sure some ever will.
