RE: Explosions in London this morning
I can't help but think that if the US and British war effort was actually focused on Al Queda instead of on stealing oil and fighting Iraqi goat farmers as they hunt for phantom WMDs, that this could have been avoided. This entire war effort has been botched. I have no doubt the terrorists who did this fine tuned their bomb making skills in Iraq, where we have set up a permenant training ground and recruitment program for them.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
