London Explosion

Yeah, I just realized how similar this is to the Madrid bombings of last year.

But there were no buses affected in the Madrid bombings, right?

Spain was bombarded and later withdrew from Iraq... I wonder if they're expecting something similar to happen, or if this time they expect that the English will send more troops, along with the US?

comparison...
No, no buses were harmed in Madrid. However, Madrid involved multiple bombs placed throughout an important though (for necessity) unsecured mode of public transport, during the period of highest use.

If the people claiming responsibility for the attack are indeed the ones responsible, then yes I believe their goal is to sour public support for the war in Iraq, and to pressure Blair's government into withdrawing troops.
