Blasts rock London

A series of deadly blasts have hit London's transport system, killing dozens. For all the latest, check out the Guardian Newsblog.

The Guardian covers the latest news including the sickly and misleading statement by Tony Blair. "They will never succeed in destroying what we hold dear in this country, and other civilised nations around the world", he said.

UPDATE: As information continues to arrive into this barbaric attack, London mayor Ken Livingstone has made a poignant statement in Singapore (a few hours after learning of London's successful 2012 Olympic bid):

"This was not a terrorist attack against the mighty and the powerful; it is not aimed at presidents or prime ministers; it was aimed at ordinary working class Londoners, black and white, Muslim and Christians, Hindu and Jew, young and old, indiscriminate attempt at slaughter irrespective of any considerations, of age, of class, of religion, whatever, that isn't an ideology, it isn't even a perverted faith, it's just indiscriminate attempt at mass murder, and we know what the objective is, they seek to divide London. They seek to turn Londoners against each other and Londoners will not be divided by this cowardly attack."

Horrific, of course. Really the time to make a political point?! For you, clearly, yes.
But let's not forget that all actions have consequences and nothing happens in a vacuum.


No, your point is hardly political...yet you clearly see the bombings as 'chickens coming home to roost'.

You're a disgusting hypocrite.

The less said the better.
Chickens coming home to roost? I'm simply saying that if this is a terrorist attack, like Madrid, or 9/11 or Bali, there are reasons, however horrific, that should not be ignored. It is far too easy to say that these people are terrorists, end of story. We refuse to learn from our past mistakes...

Anonymous needs to read some history and take some lessons in causation.
Identifying him/herself would be a start to his/her own self-examination.
The global powers (and their toady states like Israel) can rip the shit out of 'lesser' populations and the 'civilised' West carries on as usual.
Fallujah, etc. What about Haiti? completely off the map of our consciousness.

Sorry, but why is Blair's statement 'sickly and misleading' and Red Ken's so wonderful? I fail to see it.

Ant, you're like a defense lawyer for a rapist who says the victim deserved it, sashaying around in her short skirt (which is another thing that pisses off these al Qaida types something fierce...)

Blair should be sent to the Hague as a war criminal post haste.
Downing Street memos Exhibit A.

You fucking well disgust me Lowenstein. The only reason these barbarians are killing innocents is because they have the mistaken belief that if they kill enough the west will turn over and let them establish their islamofascist 13th century regime everywhere. Ain;t gonna happen. But the great irony is that should that impossibility occur, the first getting their heads separated would be all the retarded western lefties like you. Likewise if you got your glorious socialist revolution. Does it hurt to be so stupid?

You are a fucking knobhead. I realise that I should be making more intelligent arguments but they would be wasted on you, so just fuck off.
Under Tony Blair's leadership we will destroy the Islamofascist wankers. Funny how you like to look for root causes etc for fascism, isn't it?
Once again,fuck off.

Looks like some Sesame Street stragglers have lost their way...
Off you go, thinkers and visionaries...
Repeat after me, "Blair/Bush/Howard tell the truth and will save us." Repeat until believable.
