Today, I woke up to the news that the city of London had just been rocked by a series of explosions coming from various points from within the London Underground system. As more and more news leaks out of the capital, it is becoming more apparent that these explosions were a part of some kind of coordinated terrorist attack. With everyone trying to get in contact with their loved ones throughout the city, phone lines have been utterly choked.

If it is, in fact, a terrorist attack, the timing and location of the attack couldn't have been worse. With the start of the G8 Summit yesterday, and England's Tony Blair leading the wave of leaders blasting President Bush for his peanuthead stance on pollution and world poverty, this attack only serves to take out the legs of anything that was going to be discussed at those meetings.

The fact that London, being the super-duper high security city that it is with all the cameras, locked trash-cans, and readily available bomb crews, was STILL attacked successfully, only serves to prove to the rest of us that no matter how much we invest in security, we're not going to be able to stop an attack such as this one. Very disturbing, indeed.

My prayers go out to the people of London as well as everyone else in the UK who has to face this issue directly.

Just read your blog and caught the article on CNN it was ghastly. I don't understand why these terrorists continue to target the common man. We are not the ones that make the decisions that affect their lives, the leaders do. I wish those people all the best and my prayers are with them.
