I just saw that on CNN a few minutes ago when I woke up. A good friend of mine is spending the summer with his sister in London, but I haven't been able to get in touch with him. I guess I'll try to call when I get to work. :( :confused:


Edit: Apparently Israel was warned before the blast. Supposedly authorities have located a statement confirming that it's al-qaida. I ran this address through Babel Fish. http://www.spiegel.de/politik/ausland/0,1518,364121,00.html

Qaida Bekennerschreiben to notices in London

Of Yassin Musharbash

The terrorist organization aluminium-Qaida has itself to the notices of London well-known. A group named "secret organization - aluminium-Qaida in Europe" just published frequented InterNet side a Bekennerschreiben after information from MIRROR ON-LINE ONE on one of Islamics.

erlin - "you happy, community of the Muslims" makes, is called it in the letter, which is present MIRROR ON-LINE ONE. "the heroful Mudschahidin accomplished, continues to be called today an attack in London" it. Great Britain is now shaken and shocked completely, "in the north, in the south, in the west and in the east". "we warned, write the British government and the British people again and again" the authors. "we held our promise and accomplished a gesegnete military operation."

"we warn also further", are called it in the document, "the governments of Denmark and Italy and all further cross driver governments". All states are requested to withdraw their troops from Afghanistan and the Iraq.

The authenticity of the document could be confirmed not immediately. On the InterNet side, on that it publish - the forum "aluminium-Qala'a" - in the past months regularly authentic Bekennerschreiben and bulletins of different groups of terror, among other things the Iraqi aluminium-Qaida-branch had already accumulated. In addition, unauthentisches material is occasionally gepostet there. The today's Posting is signatoryly with "secret organization - aluminium-Qaida (woertl.: the Dschihad basis) in Europe".

Six bombings is the count I believe... Two died, many injured.
It hasn´t yet been verified as Al-Qaeda, eventhough Blair accused "extremists" on the bombings.

Humbug.

The London Undergroud needed a refit anyway for the planned Olympics. :p (Typical British humor)

BTW

The British don't panic in such a situation like the Americans.
They just did the proper thing to do, shut down the entire city traffic to be able to search for the attackers and possibly prevent more bombings.

Tony Blair seemed very impressed when he gave a short speech,
at least he looked very tired.

I can look at the BBC, and things seem to be under control.
No victims trapped anymore!
Heathrow Airport has been shut down as a precaution.

Imagine how it must feel if you're a terrorist on an Island you can't get off! :cool:

Well, a Londoner may say it a bit civilized, but what he means is:
"We don't give a fuck!"

That is the best way to deal with a terrorist attack.

The truth is, most people give a fuck.

I agree, but pro-war people that talk like that are hypocrits that need to fucking stop breathing.

So, are you against the war?

I know that's going to be controversial, but any country that invades another, killing civilians in the process, kinda asked for violence in return.

I'm against killing innocent people for a political cause, but this is merely an "eye for an eye" situation.

Nonetheless I think people should find other ways of protesting : hijacking TV signals, throw cream pies in the face of politicians, or any other forms of active protests that do not involve killing innocent people.

Do you really think that?
Antropology shows that people only care for their own genetical material, in other words.. Family, next of kin. Their neighbourhood, village or their city.
All the rest is nationalistic hooha!
