Unlike most people, I don't have anything profound or particularly interesting to say about the bombings in London, although there can be no doubt that this just proves what everyone has been saying since at least September 11, 2001. Also, if CNN was any indication this morning, al Qaeda is now a very top heavy group. My memory suggests that this changes at least every couple of months.
In other news, there was clash between police and a thousand protesters, who took over a police station in Tikrit, Iraq yesterday, Reuters (July 7) reports. "The demonstrators demanded that the police chief and provincial governor step down, blaming their clan for killing the former official, Ali Ghalib al-Tikriti."
I do not know much about the politics of all of this, but it is a very intriguing development.
UPDATE: One more thing before I forget. Today on C-SPAN's Washington Journal a caller who said he has served in the military in Iraq for a year said matter of factly that the only solution to Iraq and terrorism is to destroy the countries that support terrorism. I expect to hear more and more of this as time ticks forward. Then again, I'm surprised I haven't heard more of it than I have by now. 10:20 AM EST 07/07/05
