GROUP CLAIMS ATTACKS
Sky News ^ | July 7, 2005 | Staff

Posted on 07/07/2005 5:49:25 AM PDT by MadIvan

A terror group linked to al Qaeda says it carried out a series of terror attacks on London that have left a number of people dead and hundreds injured.

A previously unknown group calling itself "Secret Organisation al Qaeda in Europe" said it carried out the attacks as revenge for British "military massacres" in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Two London hospitals have reported a total of 185 wounded after a series of blasts hit locations across the city on buses and Tube stations.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair said there was evidence of explosives at at least two of the six sites.

Scotland Yard has denied reports they were warned of an attack by Israel minutes before the blasts.

Two people have been confirmed dead and at least 90 people injured in the explosion at Aldgate Station.

Prime Minister Tony Blair, issued a joint statement from all the leaders at the G8 summit.

"This is not an attack on one nation - it's an attack on all nations and civilised people everywhere," he said.

"It's important however that those engaged in terrorism realise that our determination to defend our values and way of life is greater than their determination to cause death and destruction to innocent people."

Witness, Angie, saw the bus explode in Russell Square. She said: "There were a whole lot of people around the bus. Next thing I was on the floor and there were a lot of people on me.

"I thought I was going to be crushed. The bus was ripped out at the back. It must have been a bomb."

The entire Tube network has been shut down and police have confirmed blasts at four sites: Russell Square and King's Cross Underground; Moorgate, Aldgate, and Liverpool Street Underground; Edgware Road Underground; and Tavistock Square where there has been a confirmed explosion on a bus.

One witness said the packed underground train he was on was 200 metres from King's Cross when there was a huge flash.

The train stopped and people were using umbrellas to smash windows of the trains. Passengers were led out of the train by underground staff.

He added people were milling around King's Cross covered in soot.

Now the British will understand that Israel was basically the "canary in the coal mine" - any tactics used against Jews in Israel can reasonably be expected to be used in Britain as well, including suicide bombings of pizza shops.

All will be well if such savagery strengthens our resolve.

Blair's right. It's an attack on all of us.

Ivan,

For the record: you Brits aren't alone. We're with you. Apparently no one in Al Queda owns a history book. Did they really think that the people who gave Hitler the finger during the Blitz would knuckle under to a bunch of rag head terrorists.

Now maybe we can finally go get the bastards. Finally maybe we can get serious.

I look out the window of my office; the car park is full, lorries are pulling into other buildings - commerce, trade and life is going on here.

These goat shaggers are nothing in comparison to what we've faced before.

Regards, Ivan

It's a World War, but many choose not to see the writing on the wall.

Good time for a quote from a Mel Gibson film.

-Our Father in Heaven, as we go into battle, every soldier among us will approach you each in his own way, our enemies too, according to their own understanding and will ask for protection and victory, and so we bow before your infinite wisdom. We offer our prayers as best we can. Yes, and one more thing, dear Lord. About our enemies-ignore their heathen prayers and help us blow those little bastards straight to hell. Amen.


Mel Gibson - -quote from: the movie "We Were Soldiers"

I am with you, but I fear this will mark the end of British involvement in Iraq. The gutless left will go the way of Spain i fear. I hope I am wrong and I hope the British spirit prevails.
