I'm watching the refreshingly sane, panic-free, reasonable coverage online on BBC News 24 (screen capture at right) concerning the failed Glasgow terrorist attack . The Queen was in Edinburgh for the opening of the Scottish Parliament, so the worthless religious buggers aimed their violent piety against a Scottish city. They failed, and the Labour Government under its a new Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, is, like the BBC and Britain as a whole, wisely refusing to over-react. No cities closed down, no panic, no major airport delays beyond Glasgow Airport itself.
In the wake of the unexploded car bombs found yesterday in London, London is defiant. The Gay Pride Parade went on as usual. (Image at left from the BBC.)

The Member of Parliament (MP) for central Glasgow, who is a Muslim, rightly referred to the terrorists as criminals. That's what they are: thugs, not warriors. If George W. Bush had treated wisely the 9/11 attackers as criminals instead of elevating them to warriors and called for a never-defined, unwinnable "war on terror" (without end. Amen.) the world would be a better place today.
