Two Minutes

As Britons are urged to give two minutes of silence at noon today to mark the one week anniversay of suicide bombings in London, one can only assume that the folks at the International Freedom Center will be hard at work planning an exhibit showcasing exactly why Londoners deserved to die for British Imperialism. *

Adam Brodsky has an interesting op-ed in the NY Post today. He claims that Ground Zero isn't politicized enough - that it became politicized the moment the towers were hit by the planes. People should know that the US did nothing to deserve this surprise attack and that the has done more to support human rights than any other nation in histor. In fact, "it was our very record of successful international altruism — our military, economic, political and cultural accomplishments — that fed the terrorists' wrath."

Of course, that wont come to pass because the We support our troops but hate America (especially the Bush Administration and everything that the US has ever done in its history, even if it can't be traced to Bush) would not allow a positive message about the US to be displayed there. They'll claim jingoism, or rabid nationalism shouldn't be on display there.
