Another Attack in the UK

At least 7 people have been murdered in terrorist attacks in London:
  • Seven people have been killed and dozens injured during attacks in two closely connected areas of London on Saturday night. The police are treating the attacks as terrorist incidents.
  • Police were called after a white rental van ploughed into pedestrians on London Bridge at about 9.58pm on Saturday night. The van continued on to nearby Borough Market where three attackers emerged and carried out multiple stabbings in pubs and restaurants.
  • Armed police arrived and shot the attackers dead within 8 minutes of being alerted. The attackers were armed with knives and wore what turned out to be fake suicide vests.
  • On Sunday night, Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack. “A detachment of Islamic State fighters executed yesterday’s London attack,” said a statement posted on the militant group’s Amaq media agency website.
We are lucky that they didn't have guns. The death toll would have been far higher.

I think that it's fairly clear that this was an attempt to influence the upcoming election, the election is in just four days, but it is not clear just who they were intending to help.

It really would be nice if George Walker Bush and Anthony Charles Lynton Blair were to spend the rest of their lives for what they unleashed on Iraq and the rest of us.
