Posted on 07/07/2005 1:45:13 AM PDT by RWR8189
There has been an explosion at Aldgate East underground station in London, causing the closure of the entire Tube network.
There are also reports that a second incident took place at Edgware Road station in north west London.
The Aldgate East blast was caused by "some kind of power surge", according to Tube infrastructure company Metronet, which is responsible for maintaining the Metropolitan line.
A spokesman said: "We don't know the extent of the problem yet."
A London Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: "We have just sent some resources out to the scene."
British Transport Police confirmed that there are "walking wounded" and said paramedics have responded to one report of a person classed as "life at risk".
"It's chaos, with people trying to work out what has happened," said a spokesman.
"All we know at the moment is that staff reported a loud bang at 8.49am. No one is sure what caused an explosion, but it is thought it could have been a collision, a power cut, or a power cable problem."
One witness said the packed underground train he was on was 200 metres from Kings Cross when there was a huge flash.
The train stopped and people were using umberellas to smash windows of the trains. Passengers were led out of the train by underground staff.
He added people were milling around Kings Cross covered in soot.
Terrorists attack allies of Nazis and genocidal militaries?
How do you propose 'draining the [Saudi} swamp' without military invasion?
Ultimately we (western civilization) will have to.
(Since this discussion is off topic and this thread is getting even longer, I'm going to bow out of our conversation now....)
God bless and protect our incredible, capable and brave U.S. military!
And prayers continue for our wonderful friends and allies in Great Britain!
do you think China and Russia smiled when they heard about this? i mean every attack against us makes China's rise as hegemon that little bit quicker doesn't it?
Unfortunately morals are not absolutes. They are accepted on an individual basis. Most people accept the moral code of their parents, which in this country is typically a Judeo-Christian code. But in the middle east, the ayatollahs have bee shoving a code of death down the throats of the people for at least 3 generations and so their code says it's OK to kill innocents.
Your code may be right and their's wrong, and I encourage you to go straighten them out - Good Luck! But according to their code it is quite logical to blow up themselves and as many other people as possible. Only when their code changes will they change.
My point is that these people are quite logical and rational, based on their moral(?) code in what they do. Their code says that it is good to kill innocents and infidels and if they die too, that's good too. So it's quite rational for them to do the things they do.
The solution is: 1. You either have to deprogram them, or 2. You have to kill them. I don't #1 will work very well.
# 2 would be my choice, then.
I'm with you, bub!
Thank you for the info.
