Impressive until Now

I was impressed with the British Intelligence until they were told that this was the new standard for raiding bombing suspect's homes or mosques. Yes, it's important that we honor the practices of people who want us dead.

Remember this?...


It was only two months ago that UK Muslims organized a very destructive protest in London, smearing red paint as blood on the US Embassy and burning our flag and pictures of George W. Bush, all the while chanting death threats to the US and our president. This all because a terrorist was being extradicted. But we are supposed to remove our shoes before we arrest them for possibly being involved in the brutal murder of innocents. In the name of one of our Cotillion bloggers...yeah..right..whatever. (Of course there aren't any of the bloody pictures in the archive. I can only speculate why those would have been removed.)

However, when I was searching for pictures of the recent London protest, I did find these pictures. I can only hope that they mean it and will work with the authorities to end these nonsensical terrorist attacks.



The Caption read:

LONDON - JULY 15: Muslim men leave Friday prayers at the Finsbury Mosque on July 15, 2005 in London, England. Yesterday Prince Charles urged "every true Muslim" to root out extremist preachers in the aftermath of the London bomb attacks.

Let's pray they do. They're our greatest hope in finding those who perpetrate terrorism.

Great post Portia. It's rare to find even the faintest trace of optimism in regards to Iraq these days. One site that I found encouraging is Its encouraging to read the thoughts of Iraqis who really value the heavy price paid for establishing democracy. Many are sacrificing greatly to make it work in their own country. Let's indeed pray for these ordinary citizens who have the hope and vision worthy of being founding fathers...and mothers too(I'll bet their constitution will have more female signers than ours).

The recent study released by the Brookings institution belies a lot of media impression of "quagmire":

But then you have deal with comments like those from UK MP George Galloway, who should be tried for treason...
