the real london
ok people. a little clarification here. just because i had a knee jerk liberal reaction and raised the possibility that the US was involved in london’s bombing doesn’t mean i actually think it’s true. i mean we’ve done worse, even to our allies. but i know better in this case. honestly. however others who had the same reaction seem to be running with the idea.
one thing i do know. london is the wrong fucking place to bomb. these people have dealt with the attempted destruction of their city by enemies (domestic and foreign) for centuries. every time it just strengthens their resolve. every time they fix up there city, get back to life, and formulate a plan to kick some ass. guess what? it’s already happening there. and this is how london responds. there’s a great new york times piece to the same effect too.
hilariously, they also respond by taking the piss out of some american emo kid who thinks london is a city full of weak morrissey-alikes.
