Huh, huh!!

I also looked up a tarot card. I found the 7 of swords = secret plan.

One of my great old books has a picture of a Mohammed follower on horseback entitled "A sword in one hand and the Koran in the other".

The circ is only 7,000, so we only have five reporters...including me, the intern.

And with that, I need to get back to writing a story.

This map shows a little more of the entire tube system, but the locations that were bombed are not marked. You can see more easily, how the locations that were chosen were the feeder lines to the outlying areas. Aldgate station feeds the eastern area of London.

I wonder what the spanish people are thinking....

They're probably thinking that the Brits should have bowed down. Those who are not brave enough to fight for their freedom probably cannot understand those who are.

Talking numbers here, friend. Care to speculate what % of the mindless, cowardly and savage attacks on helpless men woman and children over the past 5 years have been executed by other them MUSLIMS, middle eastern MUSLIMS, swarthy looking MUSLIMS, women included but MUSLIMS.

If they switch to WASPs at a later date then we deal with that at the time. To not attack this problem in a way that deals with the reality as backed by the facts of TODAY is nothing short of sheer lunacy.

The United Kingdom cannot do want Spain or the US did after the Beirut Bombing. They must show they mean buisness and they need to kick some terrorist ass.

They will do exactly what needs to be done. They stood alone against Hitler. Unlike us, they wouldn't freak out because some bride runs away. It takes a lot to ruffle their feathers.

Hell, if you saw some of the older Monty Python stuff, you'd see they used to do skits mocking the IRA bombings. As I said, the US could learn a lesson or two from then when it comes to these kinds of things. They don't scare easily.

There's a guy who was pretty messed up on one of the trains being interviewed right now on BBC News (you can watch it online via Windows Media Player or RealMedia). He's lucky to be alive.

"they are trying to pour salt on London's wounds...(by using) India reporters in the heart of the terrorist acts in London."


Indians have plenty of experience dealing with Muslime terrorism, unfortunately. Don't associate Hindu Indians with Muslime terrorism.

8:48 AM was the first plane strike on the WTC, same time as the first London bomb.

"...and we continue to keep them in our country. Why?"

Remember the Godfather? "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer" There is truth in this. The terrorists we know of in America are probably a good source of intel for us, whether the terrorists themselves know it or not.

They were sounding very defiant and brave. Most Londoners went on to work, the financial markets are calm, and the London police are EXTREMELY well trained and organized to respond to such an attack after years of IRA bombings.

60,000 British civilians were killed by German attacks during WWII. they are a tough lot, very inspiring indeed. As the famous war correspondent (Ernie Pyle I think) once said, when journalists actually were patriots and not traitors--"This is London....London can take it!"

Anyway, from what I gather from you and other freepers, that Mayor is the epitome of the dangerousness of politicians, when they will look you in the eye and lie, or pretend to be what they aren't....

It is getting harder and harder to not be so cynical that I want give up on politics...!

AP has learned that the Israeli embassy in London was alerted early on since Benjamin Netanyahu is/was in town for a financial conference. Still trying to verify.

Bibi was called AFTER the first blast, and told to stay put. And it was Scotland Yard which called him, not Israeli intelligence who somehow knew about it. There are so many Jew-haters in the UK, this lie was not surprising

Our public services look like they still have their act together. They got a lot of practice at this sort of thing during 20 odd years of the IRA doing it.

In general public reaction here is about what I'd expect. Calm and stubbornly unmoved. This isn't going to change anyones mind here about the war on terrorism I think.

Whatever they thought about it already, they'll probably carry on thinking. What isn't going to happen though, and what didn't happen for the IRA is the British people letting themselves be intimidated or influenced by this.

Bombing us has been tried. It doesn't work.

perhaps. but clearly in the UK, they have not been vigilant enough to break up cells amongst their native British islamofascists - I doubt this attack was carried out by an "imported" team, its home grown.

My apologies for being so late about reacting to this.

I'm very pessimistic. We should have turned Mecca into a parking lot after 9/11 but we didn't. Instead we heard speech after speech about what a great religion islam was and how tolerant we were of it. Almost four years after what have we done? True, we've removed Hussein (mach shemo), but aside from frisking little old ladies at airports and refusing to "discriminate" against "the other," what have we done?

All we do is talk talk talk. We cry, we suffer nobly, we rededicate ourselves to a multiculturalism that would outlaw criticism of islam even as it mercilessly attacks the "host religion" for its "bigotry."

Can you imagine what the world would look like today if we had had this attitide back during World War II? How did the victorious West come away from that conflict burdened with all the guilt of the vanquished foe, even as its twin Communist brother came out full of self-righteousness?

I don't understand it, but for some reason all the guilt of the Axis was transferred to the non-Communist allies of that war, despite the fact that we had lost thousands upon thousands of men destroying it. To this day we pat ourselves on the back for winning the war against Germany and immediately switch to hand-wringing over defeating the Japanese and for being suspicious of the poor innocent little Commies during the ensuing "Cold War."

Ever since World War II the West (which defeated the Nazis) has borne the guilt of Hitler (mach shemo!). Instead of learning of the importance of defeating a deadly enemy we have instead spent all our time fretting over a "domestic Hitlerism" in the form of anti-Communism and "bigotry" against "the other." What must our sainted dead of that war think of us as they look down at us and see us celebrating our victory in World War II when the only "lesson" we have learned is that we are always wrong and "the other" is always right?

Gad. You'd think at least we'd have some moles buried deep within the enemy to get the job done without implicating us. We don't seem to intend to ever do anything but react, suffer, and remain true to the bizarre "lesson" we "learned" from the Second World War!!!
