One of the rationales seen on the right for the Iraq invasion was the "flypaper theory" -- that by keeping all the terrorists busy in Iraq, they'd somehow not want to strike over here.

Many have noted that recent events in London would appear to discredit this theory. So, it appears, would recent events in Iraq, as jihaddi bulletin boards on the net are now telling aspiring homicidal freaks they are not wanted. At least not unless they already have specific training and experience. Apparently, the thugs already have all the cannon fodder they need, and then some.

Well, isn't that a relief?
