Far from our home.

Osama Bin Laden's lieutenant Ayman al-Zawahri has warned London will face more attacks because of Tony Blair's foreign policy decisions. The al-Qaeda deputy was quoted as saying: "Blair has brought you destruction to the heart of London, and he will bring more destruction, God willing."

He also warned that the US that Iraq would be worse than Vietnam. These threats were made because apparently al-Qaeda believes that the U.S. and British foreign policy is aimed directly at Muslims. Well, it just so happens that these poicies are aimed at countries involved in terrorism and are potential biological warfare threats. It just so happens that those countries are all controlled by Muslims.

It's a frustrating situation to say the least which leaves us in a catch 22. If we withdraw our forces from the Middle East, then they will not terrorize us, rather they will terrorize other smaller and weaker countries. Who do we protect...ourselves our other countries?

These guys played an amazing show at the Mercy Lounge in Nashville last night. It's amazing to see people play with such passion for the music they're playing and the lyrics they're singing.

Stumbled over your blog by clicking the "next blog" link from a friend who also uses blogspot. It was a joy to read your posts -- thoughtful, reasoned, rational... a rarity! I'm sure I'll be back to read more.
