Do I hear gloating? Sad to say, but yes, I'm pretty sure that's what I hear. The wild, wild Left is full-swing into their "I told you so agenda" before the bodies are even cold. Those Islamic terrorists are canny - hit the weak links with bloodshed and the terror will spread like a virus to the smaller nations. They already succeeded in Spain, with very little effort. They must have imagined that the Lefties in England would start running at full tilt away from the war in Iraq. They weren't wrong.
In Britain, George Galloway surrenders and urges others to do likewise:
We argued, as did the security services in this country, that the attacks on Afghanistan and Iraq would increase the threat of terrorist attack in Britain. Tragically, Londoners have now paid the price of the Government ignoring such warnings.
The Socialist Worker Party, never one to miss an opportunity to promote their agenda:
London is a centre of peace, the most multiracial city in Europe and a global centre of opposition to the war and occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan. A majority of those killed and wounded will have opposed the war in Iraq; some will have joined the huge marches for peace.
The British government cannot avoid its responsibility for these terrible attacks, which are a consequence of its support for war and occupation in Iraq and Afghanistan. The best way to ensure that there are no more such terrible attacks is for British troops to be withdrawn from there immediately.
You can read the drivel in its entirety here, but don't bother trying to find any mention of big, bad terrorists. There is no such thing, apparently - it's all us. And you certainly won't see one single word about finding and punishing those responsible. Not one...single...word.
In Canada, next on the list of "Crusader countries", the National Democratic Party (read: Socialist) leader Jack Layton, is worried:
I join with Prime Minister Blair, Prime Minister Martin and the other G-8 leaders in strongly condemning these acts of terrorism. We will not allow it to undermine Canadian society, our institutions or our beliefs in democracy, human rights, tolerance, and equality. Indeed, we must go forward today with greater determination to build a world that embraces these ideals.
