Terrorists found out after 9/11 that the response from a superpower with a strong leader can be far more than they bargained for. I expect they will find this out again after the cowardly attacks in London. This time it will be Tony Blair who will show what a strong and honorable leader can do. From what I have observed, Tony Blair is as tough as they come. The good citizens of the United States are grateful to have him as an ally.
“We the British are a people that stand by our friends in time of need, trial and tragedy, and we do so without hesitation now.”
Tony Blair, speech to Parliament, September 14, 2001
“We, therefore, here in Britain stand shoulder to shoulder with our American friends in this hour of tragedy, and we, like them, will not rest until this evil is driven from our world.”

â€œIt is important, however, that those engaged in terrorism realise that our determination to defend our values and our way of life is greater than their determination to cause death and destruction to innocent people.”
Tony Blair, following the London subway terrorist attacks, July 7,2005
