London Bombings

Why would terrorists strike in anger at a G8 meeting? Is it related or is it only a response to military presence in Afghanistan and Iraq? There is absolutely no excuse for terrorism, and the continued attacks on mass transit frightens me personally since I use it and enjoy using it to get to work.

The best coverage is from the BBC.

"London rocked by terror attacks"

I'm still trying to figure out what time the attacks occurred at. I understand it was during the morning commute, but at what time? And they're several hours ahead of us, so how long have they been dealing with this? Guess I should start checking blog sources...

Update: It started around 8:47am local London time and the last of the four explosions (on the bus) happened around 9:40am. Is that really when the majority of Londoners are on mass transit? Doesn't their workday start at 9am? I mean, thank goodness if the time helped alleviate the severity of the casualties, but I do wonder...And yes, I recognize that an estimated 40 deaths is 40 too many.
