President Bush just said the events in London are “a stark reminder that this nation is at war with Islamic fascists.”

These are homegrown Brits apparently trying to blow up planes over the Atlantic. Good thing we’ve got a 150,000 or so troops in Iraq to take the fight to them.
Ivo Daalder has more.
