London Mayor falling down

Greg Richards

We all know about the ghastly murder of British soldier Lee Rigby who was hacked to death in the Woolwich section of London in broad daylight yesterday.  Count on Rush to see what other people haven't seen.

Boris Johnson (mayor of London): "...This is not a question, now, of blaming the religion of Islam..."

But...

The Telegraph:

"Commanders have advised troops not to wear uniform travelling to and from work or outside bases following the brutal killing of a member of the military close to Woolwich barracks."

Hmmm...Why would they give that order if this was just a one-off inexplicable act of violence?  It seems denial is not just a river in Egypt as it appears to be flowing pretty strongly in London as well.

One wonders if the sudden policy on not wearing uniforms outside bases could have been influenced by the statement of one of the men with bloody knives in his hands:

"We swear by Almighty Allah, we will never stop fighting you until you leave us alone. The only reasons we killed this man is because Muslims are dying daily. This British soldier is an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. We apologize that woman had to see this today, but in our lands our women have to see the same. You people will never be safe. Remove your government. They don't care about you."

What could he mean by that?
