Update: CNN and ABC News are reporting an Al Quieda link.
As does Instapundit.
My thoughts and prayers to the victims and their families and the British people. And I hope and expect our British allies to have much more backbone than their Spanish counterparts.
If in fact al Quieda is responsible, this will prove one thing: it isnt about flushing Korans down toilets and mishandling the Muslim holy book and all that hoopla the MSM has been targeting on. This is about completely anihilating progress and destroying the way of life of civilized nations.
Update:Prime Minsiter Tony Blair’s statement from the G8 summit:
808am EST. We condemn utterly these vile attacks…all of our countries have suffered from the violent impact of terrorism…We are united in our resolve…to defeat this terrorism…an attack on civilized people everywhere…Here are at this summit leaders are striving to combat poverty and improve human life…The perpetrators of this attack are intent on destroying human life.
We shall prevail and they shall not.
I think Mr. Blair, standing at the podium, with so many leaders of the free world, including President Bush, makes a strong statement indeed.
I also want to call out all those “Gitmo Gulag!!!!” whiners and let them know that the more they coddle terrorists, the more innocent lives will be lost.
Update: Sydney Morning Herald is reporting 12 dead, 185 injured.
