The spreading virus

Let's assume that the two bombs found in London (so far) are the work of Islamic extremists, which the authorities haven't committed to saying officially yet.  Holy shit!  There is a very serious cultural conflict going on between reason and barbarism.  For all my opposition to the military action in Iraq, it's clear that something needs to be done.

What I wonder is how Britain has so much homegrown terrorist sentiment, and what they're going to do about it.  It's obvious to me, but probably not to the British authorities (and certainly not to the American authorities) that the current strategy of rapidly growing a police state to complement the war state is not working.

Here's one thing: let's not kid around with the religious sentiment that makes these kinds of actions possible.

It's time to pull out

The British Isles have become a quagmire. It's time to pull out and colonize a new country. Finland, maybe. Lots of lingonberries there.
