Londoners in the Blitz ? aren't you conveniently ignoring the thirty years of terrorism openly financed in Britain by America ? Did you visit London during that time to see the extent of the security that this necessitated ?
the man referred to was killed in Manassas - it was at Manassas Junction, at Bull Run, that several hundred people from Washington went to watch the spectacle of the Confederate armies being crushed in a few hours. It didn't quite work like that, did it ? Within ten hours there had been five thousand casualties, and the war that resulted - the first modern, technological war - killed over a million Americans.
Military estimates for a widened conflict caused by an unprovoked attack by the United States on the Middle East are not, as Rumsfeld says two hundred and fifty or "only" a thousand dead Americans, but over fifty million US dead.
The Civil War reference is sadly appropriate when the President of today gives speeched from in front of the slogan of the White Supremacists, the followers of Nathan Bedford Forrest.
If Americans want urban safety and peace for themselves and their children then it might be an idea to try and promote peace - rather than racial stereotyping, hatred and violence.
