My condolences to the people of London in the wake of the highly coordinated bombings. The attacks instantly bring to mind the bombings in Spain, as they too were coordinated attacks involving packages left at key locations. The timing of the Spain bombings coincided with national elections and had a dramatic effect on the outcome. What was significant about the London timing?

Was it the G8? Was it the Olympics announcement? Is there some other event or anniversary? Perhaps it was just “when they could do it.”

It also brings up the question of who? Was this another Al Qaeda action? Was it another group making a statement about the G8? Who knows? In any event, I wish the people of London the best and those responsible – the worst. If it turns out that Al Qaeda is responsible, expect the “War on Terror” to be elevated to new levels.
