The Spanish Prisoner (419 Version).

I've been getting e-mails from a lad from Nigeria about; money transfers, his father who died in Sierre Leone and left a big treasure, and needing a foreign bank account to transfer the money to. It feels good to do a good deed (kidding).

London Terror and The Left.

The London bombings are easy to take personally. Every tourist who comes, has to ride in the famous subway. The subway stations are also where Londoners used as shelters during Nazi bombings.

Most Londoners are against the war in Iraq. London has been the scene of great anti-war demonstrations, from the time, the first soldier left. London is multi-racial, and diverse in religions.

The bombings took place while the G-8 was meeting. I agree with what Bill Onasch wrote in
  • KCLabor
  • "Such crimes are not only morally repugnant; they also are a political disservice to those fighting the injustices emanating from Ten Downing and the White House. 9/11 has been used to justify war and attacks on human rights. This is fresh ammunition for our class enemy."

    The teorror is not about Iraq, or injustice. As Christopher Hitchens said in The Mirror (UK) on July 08th 2005, " The grievance of seeing unveiled women. The grievance of the existence, not of the State of Israel, but of the Jewish people. The grievance of the heresy of democracy, which impedes the imposition of sharia law. The grievance of a work of fiction written by an Indian living in London. The grievance of the existence of black African Muslim farmers, who won't abandon lands in Darfur. The grievance of the existence of homosexuals. The grievance of music, and of most representational art. The grievance of the existence of Hinduism. The grievance of East Timor's liberation from Indonesian rule. All of these have been proclaimed as a licence to kill infidels or apostates, or anyone who just gets in the way."

    I checked out the blogs of various friends on the left. No mention of London. Hatred of Bush is blinding you about your other fight.
