TERRORIST ATTACK in LONDON
The closet ally of the United States, the United Kingdom has been attacked in their capital of London.
The UK is respected international as the second most world super power to the U.S. Just yesterday it was announced that London would host the 2012 Olympics. They won this honor over cities like Paris and New York.
The attack consisted of a series of explosions in the London transit system. There have been varied reports of fatalities and injuries. Al-Qaeda, the same terrorist group that toppled the World Trade Towers in NY have said they were responsible for this attack.
This marks 4 great world cities that have been attacked beginning on 9/11: New York, Washington D.C./ USA, Madrid/Spain, and London/England.
Opinion: America must support the British as they deal with this Terrorist Attack just as British Prime Minister Tony Blair put his career on the line to support President Bush’s War on Terror. Not to politicize this situation I pose the question of is the United States and World actually safer because of the way we approached the War on Terror and also how the U.S. and Great Britain have diverted resources away from the security of our countries towards the War in Iraq?
More to come as this story unfolds.
