Italy, still reeling from the London bombings, has decided to clamp down on terrorism. Going by some of the precedents set by the USA, Italy has limited some of the rights of their citizens. Italy however, is not as restrictive as the USA is with the patriot act from 2001.

I believe that stopping terrorism is good, but I dont want to see this trend of slowly limiting the rights of citizens to continue, how much is enough? I think we should go full out trying to turn those 3rd world countries the terrorists came from, into strong countries. But this notion of money and greed keeps us from doing what needs to be done.

In an analysis of the bombings in London , published on the evening of July 7 in a Jihadi web site by one of the leading Saudi supporters of Al-Qaeda, the effect of the bombings was anticipated to be in the medium and long run, not the short one. 3 The analyst, is a man calling himself “Barbarosa,”
