7/7 – Who won?

I would have a lot more respect for the media’s claims about “not being beaten by terrorists” on the tenth anniversary of 7/7 were it not for them all trying to out-do each other with displays of tacky jingoism which does nothing but cheapen the solemnity the occasion deserves. 

With the media running around like headless chickens on occasions such as this, it is difficult to reach any other conclusion than that the terrorists did indeed win. 

Their objective is to affect our society for the worse. They achieved that, sadly.
