The May 22 attack in Woolwich yesterday was horrific. There can be no
justification for a murderous attack on an individual soldier in the
streets of London. It must have been awful, too, for the local people who
witnessed it ...

The Woolwich attack, carried out by two men now shot and wounded and under
arrest in hospital, appears to represent a phenomenon that was pointed out
nearly a decade ago by the security services in Britain: that the wars in
Afghanistan and Iraq would lead to a growing threat of terrorism in Britain.

Those of us in Stop the War have long predicted that these sorts of attacks
would happen because of the war on terror.
