33 Britons were murdered today as four explosions rocked the London transit system, wounding about 350 others, perhaps as high as 1,000. Local authorities do not yet know who was behind the bombings, but Prime Minister Tony Blair publicly linked the attacks to the ongoing G-8 Summit. (Above: Travelers walking "to safety", by Alexander Chadwick near Kings Cross; via the BBC.) This is simply a horrible, despicable act of terrorism, and we must help our friends across the pond to do whatever they can to find and prosecute those who abetted, condoned, and orchestrated these attacks, and see that justice is done for what happened today, and as well to prevent atrocities such as these from ever happening again.
