So now it is Tony's fault, is it?

I thought that the terrorist attacks were all President Bush's fault!

But no, Al Qaeda's 2nd in "command" (though what exactly he commands is a mystery---a group of fellow cowards?):

said in a video statement Thursday that the London transit bombings were retribution for British military intervention in Muslim countries and warned of "more destruction" if Britain doesn't withdraw. He also threatened new attacks on Americans.
So, if they are justified in bombing because the Brits, along with us, intervened in horrible situations, then are we not justified in also bombing the hell, literally, out of them?

He went on:

Prime Minister Tony Blair "has brought you destruction in central London and, God willing, will bring more destruction," Zawahiri said, addressing the "English people" in a statement broadcast on the al-Jazeera satellite television channel.

"Our message to you is crystal clear: Your salvation will only come in your withdrawal from our land, in stopping the robbing of our oil and resources, and in stopping your support for the corrupt and corrupting leaders."
And your salvation, Zawahiri, comes when we send a missile into your home. Have fun in hell.
