85 percent in britain connect London attack to Iraq

Nearly 85 per cent of all Britishers believe that the 7/7 London blasts were connected with Britain's participation in the US-led Iraq war, with a quarter of them believing, that it was a direct outcome of the war

The YouGov survey for the 'Daily Mirror' and GMTV revealed that 23 per cent of the total population believes that the Iraq war was the "main cause" of the attacks, while 62 percent said it was only a "contributory factor", the 'Daily Mail' reported.

Only 12 per cent of the Britishers were of the view that the attacks on underground trains and a bus were "not a significant cause" of Britain's involvement in the Iraq war, the survey found out.
According to the paper, the UK government had consistently rejected the argument that the bombings were the result of Britain's involvement in Iraq, insisting that extremist Islamic terror attacks began long before the invasion.
While, a majority of people, nearly 58 per cent, said that they did not believe the security forces could have done any more to prevent the attacks, 71 per cent thought the police could not have done anything to prevent the attacks.

so what?

next year 85% of the population might think it is because of global warming or Madonna's new album, who cares? you are wasting your time trying to get into the mind of someone that straps dynamite to their underwear and attempt to learn anything through rational explanation of this.

go fight in iraq, leave iraq, doesn't really matter which, they are still going to keep coming and if we are smart, we will help them as much as humanly possible in their quest to meet Allah.

Indeed, and it's telling that this dissent comes from the Mail but I'm not too surprised the British public aint buying Blairs bullshit.

it may not matter to you , but to the families of the 25,000 iraqi's killed i imagine it matters quite alot

these are people (just like you and me )

try looking at the recorded cases of terrorism in iraq previous to the war ?

find any ?

didnt think so

if 25000 died in my country (the uk) we would call that terrorism

as my previous reply

what has any of this got to do with the people of iraq ?

Hummm....try looking in a few of those mass graves, maybe you will find a dissadent or two.

Are you really one of those that thinks Iraq was some kind of peaceful little corner of Arabia a couple of years ago? Just waiting for the big bad US govt to come and rip it all up?

Listen guy. You won't take my advice but I'll offer it just the same. Your blog is identical to 10,000 other leftist blogs that have all the answers to everything in the world and every one of them involves hating the US government. If you want to actually make a point that someone might listen to and ponder, don't try the usual garbage of re-writing history and quoting crap information to make your arguments for you (like there was no terrorism in Iraq before the US got there). Have an honest debate, it won't hurt, I promise.

i wont advice you on your paranoia either

the United states CIA stated

"yes iraq is a problem but it is ranked 7th . we see NO REASON to do anything about any country outside the top 5 "

does that mean that the american CIA hate the american government .. boy have they got problems

like most people from the right you think by being sarcastic and loud you make your point better

you dont . you look foolish

i am already reaching the amusing point of replying to things your assuming i feel rather then things i have actually said

were did i say that iraq was the garden of eden ?

grow up please .. feel free to respond to what i say .. dont hold me responsible for the neurosis you hold in your mind for thinking i believe this or that .. some people describe that as an illness

you will find that many people do listen to what i say and many agree and many disagree

so have an honest debate ? i would love to .. bring it on .. (go check some facts first though)

I can't check any facts today, I'm far too busy laughing at what you consider fact. This should not bother you however, just keep in mind that I am afflicted with "neurosis". Boy, didn't even know I had it, must of crept up on me.

You think you are going to get some where by arguing whether or not we should have done something, that we have already done!!!!! It serves no purpose, other than to please your little one sided agenda that you promote on this blog. Again, just like so many others that have nothing to say.

Maybe some day you will be convincing, just not yet. When you get past 2003, post something from let's say 2004 or maybe even 2005, I'll come back and play. I know you are likely waiting on the edge of your seat.

the point of history is to learn and not to repeat the lessons hard learnt from our past

it appears we still have plenty to learn from our past (judging from you) that the purpose .. to learn something !

oh god yes ... my transcripts with you are orgasmic (not) . i did feel someone was coming along who actually had facts instead of rhetoric .

my site is full of articles about now .. infact this article you are posting on is about a news event that happened today

maybe you didnt read it ?

I think the fact of the matter is:
(a) invading a sovereign nation
(b) thrusting said nation into turmoil and civil war
(c) setting up permanent military bases, puppet government
(d) jailing people of said nation and torturing and humiliating them, many of which are found to be innocent and released

Every single Arab or Middle Easterner can see what's going on in Iraq. And that is the single greatest "terrorist" recruiting tool Osama ever could have dreamed of. They don't see us as concerned for their rights or freedoms. They see us as occupiers and terrorists ourselves.
