London attacked

Why is Iraq a big deal? Why do we need to secure our borders? Why do we still worry about attacks on our land when so many seem to have forgotten? This is why.
London has been attacked.
Near simultaneous explosions rocked the London subway and tore open a double-decker bus during the morning rush hour Thursday, causing at least two deaths and 300 injuries in what Prime Minister Tony Blair said was a "barbaric" terrorist attack timed to disrupt the Group of Eight summit.
Information is slowly coming in but it makes me so angry. If it doesn't make it you angry, if it doesn't reaffirm everything that we're fighting for, I just don't think I will ever understand your position. And you know what? I don't even want to try.

More from Tony Blair:

"Whatever they do, it is our determination that they will never succeed in destroying what we hold dear in this country,"

Let's make sure to show our support to our allies. They were in solidarity with us during our time of need, we need to make sure we're there for them to.

News services have already updated the fatalities to number in the 'double digits'.


ITN reports at least 45 have been killed in the terror attack on London. The number of injured is said to be near 1,000 with 150 of those in critical condition. Police sources say now that three explosions hit the Underground and a fourth hit a bus. They attribute the larger numbers of reported explosions to the fact that all three Underground blasts hit between stations, giving the impression of two explosions where one had taken place.

MaxedOutMama has more. So does Beth from MVRWC.

Teach from Pirate's Cove finds the words I was looking for to describe the events: "Very Surreal"... unfortunately it is all too real...

FRW says "decorate your blogs with the British flag." (strong language warning!)
