londistan calling

7 July 2005

It hurts to read about people having their legs cut off; to think (last night, while I was in bed) that at that moment some mother was crying into the night (and my mother is English]; my step-father couldn't get into London that morning). We get such detailed descriptions of London.

We can imagine it better than what happens day in day out in Iraq.
Let's not even bring up Africa ... ( ?)

Robert Fisk says exactly what I wanted to say:

http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/opinion/231696_fisk08.html?source=rss

"If you bomb our cities," Osama bin Laden said in a recent videotape, "we will bomb yours."

I would at least like to thank Al Qaeda for producing such a massive effect of terror with only 50 deaths (so far). Every other day in Iraq far worse happens, and actually the photos and descriptions from there are even more gory. Nobody runs photos of people in London with their bodies blown apart (too much to bear), but you can see those photos in Iraq.

As Fisk also mentions, how can Blair repeat such phrases as "They will never succeed in destroying what we hold dear." ? C'mon Blair you know exactly what this is about. Nobody is double-talking here. (But the rest of his speech was good: G8 is trying to help people, British muslims are nice folk. The brits are so PC)

The goal of Al Qaeda is not to shut down England. They want Islamic states in the Middle East, and they want to overthrow the current Western leaning/supported regimes. See http://crucial-systems.com/2642/The_grand_strategy_of_Al_Qaeda

It would be so nice if Al Qaeda really envisioned peaceful Islamic states; nice people praising God, respecting tradition, building grand Islamic cultures. Maybe they could get back into advancing Mathematics, sipping tea, reading Rumi. Don't count on it. They too are talking out of their asses, just as Bush lies about "democracy". (for the cause of which we overthrew countless democratic leftist gov'ts and installed brutal dictators)

I don't see this as leading to God. Politics and violence and struggle itself (jihad) all take place on the surface of God, and until you stop it with all the noise you won't realize Him.

But I try to always remain only an observer in this. I had a dream once that tarot cards were laid before me with the twin towers on them, spelling both 911 and Allah. But then I knew that these were somebody else's hand, somebody else's fate. Not my battle.

All of my friends in London appear to be safe. History happens, Romes come and go. This is still a relatively peaceful time and not very many casualties even in Iraq.

Big up Blair for training the spotlight on Africa and Global Warning. Bush is making a good appearance of saying the right things. He's almost believable. Let's see, the last time he said such friendly things... bam... John Bolton.

flickr seems to be suffering under the traffic right now.
i actually haven't seen any really great pics yet, but its hard to go through them all.
why do people post screenshots of websites ? time capsule ?
why did they title the group "the 7/7 community" ? as if al qaeda needs help with the PR.

      In case you all hadn't noticed, the world is falling apart. I posted here back on September 11th, 2007 that the finance world was going to fall apart. http://crucial-systems.com/For_those_of_you_that_dont_pay_attention_to_the_world_of_finance The reason I fled New York was that I could see quite clearly that the wheels were going to come off that wagon and the US may very well collapse into chaos. Alarmist, yes. That's what alarms are for. The solid truth is that the financial markets always precede the real ...

    • Artist Dr. Steven Kurtz cleared of all charges

      This was the most bat shit crazy episode in the whole Bush Gestapo Era. Charges are finally dropped, but as Kurtz states, there is no re-compensation for him. The case originated in May 2004, when Kurtz's wife Hope died of heart failure as the couple was preparing a project about genetically modified agriculture for the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art. Police who responded to Steve Kurtz's 911 call deemed the Kurtzes' art materials suspicious and alerted the FBI. Kurtz explained ...

    • quagmire

      Dick in 2004. Right. So what were they thinking the second time round ? Its time to get the whole middle east powder keg going. Its time to destroy the US itself USSR-Afghanistan style, thus opening it up for corporate takeover. Its time for Armageddon. They are in contact with space aliens, and its the aliens that told them they had to do it. The so-called Left should give up trying to reason with these people and saying America got ...

    • respect to the deserters

      At an Army base in Alaska last year, "there was one guy who literally chopped off his trigger finger with an axe to prevent his deployment," Dr. Thomas Grieger, a senior navy psychiatrist said in an interview. New york times, mon april 9th, 2007 Respect. More respect then I give to the Buddhist monk in Thailand who cut off his penis because it wouldn't sit still during meditation. Interesting: The desertion rate during the Vietnam war was 5% (NYT)
