Handling of the London bombings

Yesterday four devastating bombs hit London, killing over 50 people, with at least 9 of them being Australian.

What strikes me as quite amazing is that the British police are handling the investigation incredibly professionally as a criminal investigation and the sites are being referred to, and treated as, crime scenes.

This is in contrast to the American way that they handled attacks. They treated it as a crusade, immediately determined to go on a witchhunt, invading countries and oppressing people. The American way of handling hasn't been much better than the perpetrators themselves.

I have much more respect for the British. From the press reports and other information, the police have been doing nothing but a 100% professional criminal investigation. Bravo!
