What will be interesting, at least to me, will be the differences between how the Bush admin pursued Bin Lauden and how the Blair govt goes after Al Qaeda, and what they do to British individual rights contrasted to the what Bush/Ashcroft/Gonzales have done/are doing. However you view it, it will be interesting.

My guess is that the culture shock won't be so jarring there. England has prior experience with terror via the IRA, and London is already one of the most heavily-surveiled cities on earth. I imagine the public outcry will be less.

I don't know. Al Qaeda has a different emotional valence than the IRA, I think...But maybe so.

Much of the commentary is suggesting that AQ is more a concept or a cause than an actual existing organism. After the training camps it has spread and mutated and is caught by others along the way. There are, of course, qestions being asked about the security services, but when there is no definable group, per se, it's hard to monitor and track.

Yeah, AQ is the demon name applied -- I was speaking in that context.
