From: Ross Hardter, USA
I would like to add one more voice to those expressing their condolences over the attacks in London. As Britons sympathized with us after 9/11, so we do with you. We may occasionally disagree over policies (as we often disagree in this country with our own policies), but Britain and America have been friends and allies for nearly a hundred years, and that is not about to change. We stood with you in two World Wars, as you have stood with us in our legitimate fight against terrorists in the current age, and we continue to stand with you today as always.
As an American, I was very pleased to see London get the 2012 Olympics, clearly the second choice of every American. I am sorry to see your joy spoiled for now, but this day will pass and 2012 should continue to be a goal in which we can all take pride. So take heart. Britain will survive as it has for over 2,000 years. And more than survive, it will continue to offer a model for the world.
