Round and Round
Obviously timed to coincide with the G8 summit, this latest outrage will hopefully serve to put a little backbone in the European Union. The Brits have historically not responded as planned to this sort of thing . . . ask the IRA about that.
Altho a splinter group of Al Qaeda has claimed credit, it remains to be seen as I sit here typing this who the actual perpetrators might have been. I just know that at least forty innocent Britains are dead, hundreds more wounded, and London was thrown into chaos for a few hours.
Does it tire you, gentle reader, this bizarre and unending habit of the human race of slaughtering one another? It wearies me, I know that. And yet, vigilance must be maintained until everyone learns to love their neighbor as they would their brother. If you disarm the village, the first barbarian to come over the hill ruins everyone's day. You have to make sure there's no more barbarians waiting on the other side of the hill. That's the trick.
We're not there yet.
