This **** is getting old. I just got back from picking up my wife.
Ummm, what are you talking about?
I'm guessing the fact that there were additional explosions in London today. Three subway stations and one bus. It appears that the bombs (and therefore the casualties numbers) are smaller, thanks goodness.
There is very little solid information on this. From what I understand, only the detonators on the explosives went off.
Man, that sucks. I hope no one was hurt. I'm watching CNN and theydon't have alot of info
Friggin Terrible. I wonder if it's some dumb copycat or something. Doesn't seem like Al Quaida (if in fact that's who it was) to do something like this so close together. They tend to dissappear for a while.
My thoughts go to the folks whose lives were touched by this and 7/7's terror acts.
In my mind, it doesn't matter whether or not it's copycat. Once the perps are found, they should be dipped in jam and tied to a fireant hill. Then, if they're still alive, execute 'em. No room for negotiation or plea agreement.
I can't help, but think of conspiracy theories when I see this. Especially if Britain starts to churn out some huge civil rights infringing legislation. We already have the Patriot Act and I heard Britain had something in the works or something.
You can't help but think of conspiracy theories because some explosions occured two weeks from each other? I'm sorry I don't see it. It's like people claiming that the U.S. government was responsible for 9/11. Hogwash.
Nah, just the whole deal. And I'm not sure why you think the US government allowing 9/11 would be hogwash.
It's a public fact that OBL's family's plane was the only commercial flight allowed to take off within two hours of 9/11.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not buying into any of that Michael Moore BS.
But it sure makes you wonder, doesn't it?
I don't believe for one minute that the government would ALLOW the deaths of hundreds of americans, including a substantial number of police and firefighters, or the amount of economic damage that was done that day.
Why do you think it's anything BUT hogwash? Sounds like the ruminations of a bunch of whacked out conspiracy theorists, to me.
Yeah, I'm not going to say I'm certain, but I definitely play around with the idea.
well this is good
Two Suspects Caught
Not quite. I'm not in support of terrorism or anything, but just check out the facts for yourself on Snopes.
Basically - Members of the bin Laden family were flown within the country to "assembly points", and then left the country once normal air travel resumed.
Now then - I really hope this thing today wasn't a failed al Qaeda thing, because they seem to get annoyed and try again harder next time (remember the first time the WTC was bombed, and then 9/11... was the first time aQ?)
Prayers are with all Britons. Peace.
death to terrorist scum is all i have to say.
I heard the same thing about the detonators only going off, not the main explosives. Hard to believe all those bombs malfunctioned. Not likely.
Must have been incompetent bombmakers. That does strike me as odd, Al-Qaeda usually seems to do their homework.
I wonder if this was a copycat of some sort?
Haven't heard anyone take credit yet.
There was something going on in the Palisades Mall Yesterday with bombs, I didn't get the full story. But from what I heard there were 2 boxes wraped in tin foil with wires sticking out, one of the roof top, and one in a men's bathroom, and I think*** that one was a real bomb that wasn't set off.
My wife's supposed to go see her friend in England next month. She was just getting brave enough to make the trip after the first bombings when I confidently reasoned; "What are the odds that they're going to do that again?" Pretty good I guess.
