Someone forgot to re-read the US constitution this past July 4th.
Someone developed a lacuna where the words of another Founding Father should have been:
Those willing to give up a little liberty for a little security deserve neither security nor liberty.
Someone decided that because right wing reagent media is poisonous, intimidating and loud, it must be worthy of emulation.
Someone needs to be told in no uncertain terms that London was brave, sensible, dignified and and just in her acceptance of a cosmopolitan society before the bombings, brave, sensible, dignified and and just in her conduct during the bombings, and has shown very little dimming of that bravery, good sense, dignity and justice after the bombings. There are a lot of Americans who can learn lessons from this fact, if they can hold their ridicule long enough to engage their own brain cells.
London did not throw out all its Irish residents during the IRA bombing campaign. They survived that campaign, and emerged a stronger city. Never forget that.
P.S. Also worth a read: "Bugged by the Brits"
