A wakeup call from hell

I woke this morning to the news that the Secret Group of al Qaeda's Jihad in Europe had claimed responsibility for the blasts in London this morning.

If there have ever been any doubts as to why we must not end the war on terror until we have eradicated it this should remove them.

If those on the far left calling for a withdrawal date from Afghanistan and Iraq want to know why we'll stay until the job is done this is why.

Our kinsman in England have stood beside us in the war on terror, let us now get down in the trenches and pull them back up in their time of need. They were here for us when we were attacked on in our homes, now the time has come for us to return the favor.

We can not allow anyone to allow bestow the blame upon us for this attack as we continue to fight the war on terror and we can ill afford to allow our kinsman in the war on terror to follow in the footsteps of those who have buckled under the demands of terrorists.

If you needed a reminder as to why we're fighting the war on terror, you just got it. We can not afford to to allow those who have died to die in vain.

I could agree, if there was any evidence that the war in Iraq had any connection to stopping events like today's.

Nicely stated, Phin.

Of course, the 'bats believe that it was all Bush's fault, and there was no such thing as terrorism before we invaded Iraq.

Wow I salute you for thinking outside the box, for looking at things clearly and rationaly, for making sense of the senseless. Too many people just swallow what they r told, beleive what those in power want them to beleive, see what those in power want them to see, but not you phil, ur eyes are WIDE open.

I doubt London would have come under attack had its government not supported the war so strongly. The terrorists staged this attack because of the war in Iraq, not because of our failure to adequately fight terror in Iraq.

We need to stay in Iraq until the country has stabilized enough for the Iraqi people to govern themselves. That should be the goal. At that point, a timely withdrawal from Iraq will actually be beneficial to our struggle against terrorism.

A key to victory in any endeavor is to know your enemy. To believe that we can not withdraw from Afghanistan and Iraq until we have eliminated terrorism is foolish and demonstrates a lack of understanding of our enemies.
