Barbarians Sack London

LONDON, England (CNN) -- At least 33 are dead and scores wounded after a series of four "callous" and coordinated bombings in London's transport system, Scotland Yard said.

U.S. law enforcement sources say the British government has told them the death toll is at least 40.

Witnesses described the horror of seeing victims dying and with serious injuries. There were scenes of panic as power failed on crowded underground trains, and tunnels filled with smoke.

"We were all trapped like sardines waiting to die," said Angelo Power. "I honestly thought I was going to die, as did everyone else."

British Prime Minister Tony Blair said it was a "barbaric" terrorist attack as he flew back to London from the G8 summit in Scotland, which he said would go on in defiance of the bombers.

A group, the "Secret Organization group of al Qaeda Organization in Europe," claimed responsibility in a Web site posting. The authenticity of the claim could not immediately be verified.


My great fear in this is that people will blame the USA for this in a roundabout way. I'm quite sure that there will be those who will blame the Iraq war for this attack. What they forget is that these animals swore to attack the UK long before they announced support for the war. They hate the West and our culture. Did they not just make threats against Canada just two days ago? Canada did not participate in the Iraq war. Until everyone understands the roots of their hatred, we'll never win. Appeasement will be the death of the West.

I'm honestly surprised this sort of attack has not happened here in the US. Our transit systems are a soft target.
