And they from Sheba shall come

Your credits have run out. Please put five dollars more in the slot. Withdrawing Spanish troops from Iraq was nice but now we need more. Reuters reports that 9 persons, including 7 Spanish tourists, were killed in a suicide car bomb attack in Yemen.

Yemen said seven Spanish tourists and two Yemenis were killed in a suspected al Qaeda suicide car bomb attack on their convoy in the province of Marib on Monday. ... Security sources told Reuters earlier the attack followed an al Qaeda statement last week demanding the release of some of its members jailed in Yemen and warned of unspecified actions.

Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos said the tourists were accompanied by Yemeni security personnel when the suicide bomber rammed his vehicle into their convoy as they left the Queen of Sheba Temple.

The rest of the article describes the continuous struggle between the Yemenis and al-Qaeda. Realistically speaking, there can be no full escape from the War on Terror unless it is possible to leave the planet Earth. Whether in Glasgow, Yemen, Bali, the little town of Beslan or bustling New York, there is no withdrawal from the problem. But that realization may take a while for that to sink in.

Nothing follows.

At the moment of the first London attack the media began blaming the Iraq war. Now it appears one of the Doctors may have a connection with Iraq. But his connection with British Socialized Medicine is far more recent. And he probably watched the BBC a lot as well.

Now that the MSM can actually offer a bit of evidence they shall surely blame it all future terror on the Iraq war.
