Al Qaeda Attacks Britain

Islam is one of the great world religions, teaching many virtues and providing order and guidance to the lives of more than a billion people. Radical Islamism, on the other hand, is a poisonous political ideology that spawns hatred and violence of the most brutal and indiscriminate kind. Its basic tenant appears to be that anyone who does not subscribe to a narrow, political, version of Islam can and should be killed, be they man, woman or child; be they Moslem or any other faith. An especial twist is that Radical Islamists often seek their own suicide in acts of violence, often to no other purpose, and this self-destruction makes them utterly indifferent to the carnage and grief they leave behind. These vermin have recently visited their spite on Britain again, this time proving inept rather than deadly, but we were very lucky and the nation could easily have been in mourning today. For those that haven't noticed, we at war with these people, a war made more brutal by the absolute impossibility of a negotiated peace, because there is no common ground upon which any kind of peace can be based. Most adults in the UK have been here before, until the IRA finally saw sense and laid down their arms. That was a long haul though, and this looks to be longer.
