The pain and agony felt by everyone when terrorist bombs kill and maim people make me sad and angry. Yesterday's bombings were horrific, and I can only begin to imagine the grief felt by friends and relatives of the vicitms. I highly recommend Normblog by Norman Geras for its tone and content. Also Silly Little Country by Alan Adamson. And there are many good insights at the Western Standard, including this by Kate McMillan.

I hope the nutcases don't blame the CIA.

I hope more people begin to understand the fear and stress felt by Israelis.

I hope gubmnts and voters recognize that, yes, Galloway and the Socialists, et al, are right that Spain and England were targeted for their support of the U.S. war in Iraq, but that the appropriate response is not to give in to terror.
