I’ve been reading a lot of articles like this one, which are going on and on about how these attacks are All About Iraq, and how this is All Blair’s Fault, etc. etc. Guys? Your hearts are sometimes in the right place, but this argument is a load of bullshit. People have been attacking American and British targets long before the invasion of Iraq. Observe such incidents as the World Trade Center (bombings 1 and 2), the embassy bombings, the Pan Am bombing, etc.
By the same token, American liberals really really need to cut it out with the idolization of George Galloway. He sucks.
You may or may not agree with the Iraqi invasion, but let’s not pretend that the terrorists would all magically vanish if only we’d leave Baghdad. You’re making other liberals sound silly.
