A little bang in the BIG APPLE

It's hard to make out what yesterday mornings grenade/bomb explosion in New York means to us here in the U.S. It does not appear to be Blowback from the current Neocon snafu that is Iraq today. Was it aimed at the British? Lord knows England has enough people pissed off at it from it's days as an imperial power and we seem to be running down that road thanks to the Bush doctrine . I recall driving through Kenya back in the mid 1980's I asked our driver about how things were when Kenya was still a British colony. Our driver paused, stared straight ahead and diplomatically said "I have nothing to say about the British". Which said a lot to me.
