They just got a different tool to use than we do: They kill innocent lives to achieve objectives. That's what they do. And they're good. They get on the TV screens and they get people to ask questions about, well, you know, this, that or the other. I mean, they're able to kind of say to people: Don't come and bother us, because we will kill you. Bush - Joint News Conference with Blair - 28 July '06

Londoners think Iraq contributed to terror

syracuse/AP: Seven out of 10 Londoners believe the Iraq war contributed to the July terrorist attacks in the city, and nearly as many want British troops withdrawn from Iraq, according to a poll published Tuesday.

The MORI poll for the Greater London Authority found that 72 percent believed British involvement in the U.S.-led war contributed a "great deal" or a "fair amount" to the July 7 transit attacks, in which four suicide bombers killed 52 people.

Only 8 percent thought the war was not a factor, while 15 percent thought it was "not very much" of a factor. Link
