Attacks on London

I did not check the Internet before I commuted to work today, so I wasn't even aware of the horrific attacks in London that occurred during said commute. I didn't notice any armed military or police officers on the metro, either, but that could have been because I was half-asleep, as usual.

Andrew Sullivan has the best content right now with respect to the bombing, including a lot of links to London bloggers.

It remains to be seen whether this was an Al-Qaeda attack or not, and whether it was aimed at the G-8 Summit or against Britian's involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan. If nothing else, though, it should re-focus the public's attention on the fact that there are people out there who want nothing more than to kill innocent civilians in Western nations. Our tactics may be criticized, but we are surely at war.
