The following exchange between Fox News host Brian Kilmeade and Fox News business contributor and substitute host Stuart Varney occurred during breaking news coverage of the attacks on London subways and buses on the July 7 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends:

KILMEADE: And he [British Prime Minister Tony Blair] made the statement, clearly shaken, but clearly determined. This is his second address in the last hour. First to the people of London, and now at the G8 summit, where their topic Number 1 --believe it or not-- was global warming, the second was African aid. And that was the first time since 9-11 when they should know, and they do know now, that terrorism should be Number 1. But it's important for them all to be together. I think that works to our advantage, in the Western world's advantage, for people to experience something like this together, just 500 miles from where the attacks have happened.

VARNEY: It puts the Number 1 issue right back on the front burner right at the point where all these world leaders are meeting. It takes global warming off the front burner. It takes African aid off the front burner. It sticks terrorism and the fight on the war on terror, right up front all over again.

KILMEADE: Yeah.




My thoughts are with the families of those affected by the attack (and the entire British people, including coffeewolf on this here el jay).

I couldn’t agree more.

This only serves one clan’s purpose, and that’s the Bush Co.  This would be too stupid to come from a terrorist group, be their minds sick or not…

i think the time to be "liberal" has gone and the time to be somewhat more extreme is here

idem dfuruta

not to mention that a different foreign policy could seriously put a dent in terrorism as well. it's pretty simple: if the us & uk stopped terrorizing other people, they will stop being terrorized as well.
