"Ten Years After the London Bombings, the British Still Don't Get It"

I think they don't want to get it. 

Or as Mark Steyn has put it: 

"In July 2005, in The Irish Times a couple of days after the slaughter, I suggested that, for all the horror and a higher corpse count than the IRA ever managed, blowing up Tube cars and buses "lacked the searing iconic precision of using aircraft to demolish the Manhattan skyline" and therefore 7/7 was unlikely to be a "day the world changed", as we used to say, for a while, about 9/11. London lapsed into Blitz mode - "Britain can take it." But, as I wrote in the Telegraph:"
That's never been in doubt. The question is whether Britain can still dish it out.
