Some people might disagree with me, but I think that Tony Blair having to go back to London does disrupt the G8 Summit. It is sad that we have to witness more senseless deaths in our generation and to think we call ourselves civilized.
It is thought that the 7 blasts in London’s transportation system was timed to coincide with the G8 summit, but there is still no clear motive behind it. The attacks are also believed to not be related to London winning bid to host the 2012 Olympic games. There is no clear measure of the casualties at this point but I do send my most sincere condolences to anyone affected by this tragedy.
Who would want to disrupt the G8 Summit… who in the world would want to mess with financial aide to Africa and agreements for a better environment?
While I think that President Bush was not going to necessarily do everything we in our eyes see as possible for the summit, I still held Blair’s kind of optimism in that some concession could be made. Blair is said to return to the summit tonight, I hope that they can really make a difference and not let terrorism hurt a great cause.
