Suicide Bombers Come To London

Looks like they were suicide bombers, though the police seem awfully reluctant to say so.

Just because a bomber commits suicide during the act of terrorism doesn't necessarily make him a suicide bomber, right?

As in the 9-11 attacks, where (if I recall correctly) a customs or other security official actually noticed odd behavior by one of the terrorists but didn't say anything because of political correctness...

Earlier reports had quoted a witness on the bus who said he saw an “agitated” olive-skinned man rummaging in a backpack moments before the explosion.

Not only does this bring the horrors of Palestinian-style terrorism right to the heart of the sleeping West, it forces us to confront a question we've sought to avoid.

Had the bombers simply left their backpacks behind, we could continue as we have preferred searching for suspicious objects. But with suicide bombers -- now we have to look for suspicious people, and those people will almost all be, of course, Arab or Persian or Asian Muslims.

The bombers in London seem to have been British subjects, but of Pakistani descent.

How can racial profiling be avoided under these circumstances?

I'm sure our death-before-political-incorrectness leaders will find a way.
