London Explosion

You know, things like this make me feel so much better that we decided to take the fight away from Al Qaeda. Thank you sir, for taking the eyes off the prize.

(3 hours... I didn't think I'd last that long before making a critical Bush comment...)

OK, Blair is back on, with Bush and Chirac standing right behind him...and the other G8 leaders as well...

So, we're fighting them in Iraq so they won't attack us elsewhere?

Ain't workin'.

Of course, they'll turn around and amend it to "so they won't attack us as much elsewhere."

And that will of course be impossible to refute, short of construction of a parallel Earth in which we never invaded Iraq. (And if we build it, can I go there?)

So you read the part about how "we keep fighting the war on terrorism"?

You know, there will come a day where I will make a long post on how calling this the "War on Terrorism" is not only absurd, but allows us to misunderstand what the hell we are doing, thus leading to huge strategic blunders. (What do I mean? Well, the hijackers of 9/11 used airplanes. Did we launch a "War on Aircrafts"? That formulation makes as much sense as "War on Terrorism". We're confusing the enemy with the methods. What we're really fighting is an ideology. But that's a post for later [or likely never].)
