Oh dear God, it's happening again 

What a difference 24 hours makes. Yesterday, London was celebrating an Olympic berth. Today... well...

A group calling itself "The Secret Organization of al-Qaida in Europe" posted a claim of responsibility, saying the blasts were in retaliation for Britain's involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I hope those fucking pigs rot for eternity.

London Mayor Ken Livingstone said the blasts that ripped through his city were "mass murder" carried out by terrorists bent on "indiscriminate ... slaughter."

"This was not a terrorist attack against the mighty or the powerful ... it was aimed at ordinary working-class Londoners," said Livingstone, in Singapore where he supported London's Olympic bid. Giselle Davies, an International Olympic Committee spokeswoman, said the committee still had "full confidence" in London.

There really isn't any other way to see it than this. Again, I have to ask, how the hell is a vile act like this meant to curry support and empathy? It doesn't. They're murderers.

The U.N. Security Council was to meet later Thursday to address the London attacks and was expected to pass a resolution condemning the blasts, an official said.

Bold step there, guys. Really going out on a limb.
