If you are aware of the situation in Turkey you can realise that it could be a Turkish group (that is funded by Al qaeda as I said before) that wants to lower the power of the turkish government which was asked to send military forces to Iraq. It acts as a threat to the government.

My opinion on the attack: savage, unnecessary and irrational...now who is going to argue with me?

Well obviously now they have had quick terrorism they are likely to back Bush on many ore issues and it feels that the east is more of a hotspot than ever. Even wrose is the image of terorism creeping into Europe.

Is this the safer world promised by Bush/Blair post Iraq?

Rubbish
The attacks were exactly what was predicted. No group was ever going to go after Bush, i always thought there would be an attack in Lonsdon so that Blair and Bush got the message 'you've not got us beat yet' as opposed to being killed (in which case i wouldnt be surprised if the publics rose up in support of them!).
Instead the attacks were in Turkey on British targets. Several groups are claiming responsibility, which one it was will take time, though remember that if its a muslim group with a hate of the west it doesnt need any links to Al Queda..

And as for the synagogue attacks. Well these suicidal pricks manage to kill a damn sight more innocent muslims than Jews. I cant see how they will get heaven and a bevvie of virgins as reward for that

Maybe this is the start of a campaign against British people due to our government's stance on Iraq?

Its not just that though is it. Turkey let the US use its airspace in the war. It also wants to 'join the coalition' - mainly to seize the kurdish oilfields. Bombing british interests in turkey (has alot of british tourism) nails both in one go.
