And I'm sure there's about 100,000 Iraqi civilians who would have loved it had they lived to see it.

Yup, and the same number of Americans who would have loved to see a free America and abolition of slavery at the end of the Revolutionary and Civil Wars too.

It's a political issue, a result of political moves.

I suppose we can all sign in and click on the thread and say, "oh yeah, explosions are bad, people should stop exploding things," and then click post.  But politics is all up in this ****.

I'm as guilty of making a political post as anyone else, but if from here on out we can't keep that out of it then we'll have to lock this down.  Them's the breaks.

By the way, explosions are bad and people should stop exploding things.

That's not what I meant, but the thread shouldn't be derailed into a political argument...instead it should honor those lost in the horrible attacks in London.

Explosions are bad, people need to stop exploding things.

I have to agree that turning this into a political discussion is a disservice to the victims of this attrocity.  I used to work with people who used the King's Cross train station every day and I'm genuinely concerned for their wellbeing.

Turning this discussion into what the roots of terrorism are that led to this attack would be a very circular and short discussion.  It might be wiser and more beneficial to ask people to do what they can for the victims and in the same breath ask that they take their own time to look into the topic.  Message boards are not always the best sources of history and information.

I know we have our different political views, and I believe in what we are doing in our nation's stance on routing out terror. 

But at least we all agree that the people that do these horrible things to innocent civilians are wrong.

Absolutely.

Just understand that there are many people, including most of the world (and me,) who think that our actions are making it worse and are offended by the thought that people believe that our countries actions are justified, just like there are those who are offended by the fact that many americans do not support the war. Let's just not push any buttons. :-X

Peace.

I'm glad you're there to explode things when needed.  But if there were a day when (and yes, I know this is never ever going to happen) where your services were no longer needed, I'd be fine with that. :)
