Make the connection

"Lots of people think about Iraq in moral terms, Abu Ghraib and kind of despicable morality, which reminds us too closely of Saddam Hussein. There's the Iraq that means to a lot of people Fallujah and the killings of thousands upon thousands of harmless people... I do think that it [London bombing] is linked to Iraq. I do think that politicians have deliberately over-simplified the arguments of people who say it's connected to Iraq...What I'm saying is that Iraq is not simply something that happened that generates terrorists, it's a whole rhetorical set of meanings that won't go away - the Prime Minister may want us to move on, it's too symbolic - it's deep in our consciousness."

Australian London bombing survivor, John Tulloch, Professor of Media Studies at Charles Sturt University, ABC World Today, August 9

Only a professor of media studies could come up with something like that.
