A fast grab of links- 120lb. me has to wrestle 1,000lbs. plus of ailing engine lathe away from a wall so I can try to get it running again- I'll check back as "meatworld interface problems" allow.

Hi, folks- thanks for stopping by. I may stay in the air conditioning and monitor this situation ( see reply #3- jeez, my old workshop is hot today! ) instead of wrangling nearly-immovable objects.

Thank God nothing like this happened during our 4th of July celebrations. It is somewhat surprising we were not hit.

LOLFOF. The world is one big circus tent. I almost was choking on my dinner as I watched tonights coverage at PBS, haw haw haw, then turned to pretty boy Brian at NBC.....hah hah hah..........the serious looks on their faces.....ten reporters all covering the news out of London.

I'll tell ya pal, most of my time is spent in my basement on the PC, either here, sites we all frequent, or flying a F18 over parts of Iraq, in Operation Iraq Freedom bombing targets, or flying carrier ops with F18 out of the Persian Gulf in Microsoft Flight Simulator, F16 out of Andrews airforce base to protect or capital etc., or shooting Nazi's and other scum bags in Medal of Honor or Soldier of Fortune Double Helix, such as Iraqis in some of the episodes, yes I'm only 58.

Can't take staring at the L/MSM or most TV. But back to our dear cousins across the big pond. I hope 95% or more of the British become totally piss off and enraged over this latest display from the cult of peace and demand much tighter controls over who is allowed in their country. Maybe the lame brained Chirac and other G8 goofs might start to get the message. Surely they could start by asking the mayor of London what he know thinks of those wonderfull Immans that run the local terroroist groups in his city.

Blair's first statement:

I'm just going to make a short statement to you on the terrible events that have happened in London earlier today. And I hope you understand that at the present time we're still trying to establish what has happened. There's a limit to what information I can give you. And I'll simply try and tell you the information as best I can at the moment.

It's reasonably clear there have been a series of terrorist attacks in London. There are, obviously, casualties, both people that have died and people seriously injured. And our thoughts and prayers, of course, are with the victims and their families.

It's my intention to leave the G8 within the next couple of hours and go down to London and get a report face to face with the police and the emergency services and the ministers that have been dealing with this, and then to return later this evening.

It is the will of all the leaders at the G8, however, that the meeting should continue in my absence, that we should continue to discuss the issues that we were going to discuss and reach the conclusions which we were going to reach.

Each of the countries around that table has some experience of the effects of terrorism. And all the leaders, as they will indicate a little bit later, share our complete resolution to defeat this terrorism.

It's particularly barbaric that this has happened on a day when people are meeting to try to help the problems of poverty in Africa and the long-term problems of climate change in the environment.

Just as it is reasonably clear that this is a terrorist attack, or a series of terrorist attacks, it's also reasonably clear that it is designed and aimed to coincide with the opening of the G8.

There will be time to talk later about this.

It's important, however, that those engaged in terrorism realize that our determination to defend our values and our way of life is greater than their determination to cause death and destruction to innocent people in a desire to impose extremism on the world.

Whatever they do, it is our determination that they will never succeed in destroying what we hold dear in this country and in other civilized nations throughout the world.

Thank you. -

Blair's G8 statement:

We condemn utterly these barbaric attacks. We send our profound condolences to the victims and their families.

All of our countries have suffered from the impact of terrorism. Those responsible have no respect for human life. We are united in our resolve to confront and defeat this terrorism that is not an attack on one nation but on all nations and on civilized people everywhere.

We will not allow violence to change our societies or our values, nor will we allow it to stop the work of this summit. We will continue our deliberations in the interests of a better world.

Here at this summit, the world's leaders are striving to combat world poverty and save and improve human life. The perpetrators of today's attacks are intent on destroying human life.

The terrorists will not succeed. Today's bombings will not weaken in any way our resolve to uphold the most deeply held principles of our societies and to defeat those who would impose their fanaticism and extremism on all of us.

We shall prevail and they shall not.
