Even London Mayor Ken Livingstone
is decent, speaking on the attacks:
``I want to say one thing: This was not a terrorist attack against the mighty or the powerful, it is not aimed at presidents or prime ministers, it was aimed at ordinary working-class Londoners,'' Livingstone told reporters.
``That isn't an ideology, it isn't even a perverted faith, it's mass murder,'' Livingstone said. ``We know what the objective is. They seek to divide London.'' [...]
Livingstone said the attack was aimed at ordinary Londoners.
``Black and white, Muslim and Christian, Hindus and Jews, young and old,'' he said. It was an ``indiscriminate attempt to slaughter irrespective of any considerations for age, class, religion - whatever.''
And that's the thing: They don't care. West is west is west to them, and whatever collateral damage done in the process of attacks is A-OK, so long as it causes us to be seized with panic and self-doubt. (Really, too, I doubt the terrorists shed a tear for killed co-religionists or fellow-countrymen they think too westernized, living and working in London without actively joining in the overall terror campaign.)

UPDATE: Conversly, longtime pro-terror asshat and MP George Galloway is, as usual, appalling.
Respect MP George Galloway says: "We argued, as did the security services in this country, that the attacks on Afghanistan and Iraq would increase the threat of terrorist attack in Britain. Tragically Londoners have now paid the price of the Government ignoring such warnings."
There's socialists with asinine social engineering schemes like Livingstone, otherwise reasonable in the face of attack...and then there's utter scum like the Saddam-supporting Galloway, who seem to want us to collectively curl into a ball and beg the terrorists not to kick too
hard, if they'd be so good. Idiot.
