Car Bomb Scare In London
Sky Newx (UK) ^ | June 29, 2007

Posted on 06/28/2007 11:55:13 PM PDT by HAL9000

An explosive device found in a car in central London has been defused.

Police were called to reports of a suspicious vehicle parked in The Haymarket area shortly before 02:00 this morning.

The area was cordoned off by police who examined the car.

They discovered what appeared to be a potentially explosive device, which was then made safe.

An investigation has been launched by the Metropolitan Police's Counter Terrorism Command.

Probably not a scare. New reports say “massive car bomb” defused. All you limey Freepers keep your eyes open for another parked somewhere.

**All you limey Freepers keep your eyes open for another parked somewhere.**

Exactly what I was thinking, they rarely plant them one at a time, this one was only found because a passer by thought it looked suspicious, it’s rush hour now in London the favoured time for multiple bombings, I hope people are being very careful right now.

Ferdinand and Isabella are condemned by historians for deporting the Moors from Granada. Sounds like an idea whose idea has come — again!

Times have really changed!

Vice President Bush and his wife were scheduled to visit their Son and DIL in Midland, Texas.

A supervisor of 3 of my crews lived next door to George and Laura Bush.

Even though the neighbors were checked out, the SS ran a check to see if anybody had visitors or anything out of place.

The supervisor had just received his new leased car.

It was winter and he would start his car to warm up while he finished his coffee.

The car caught on fire and there were people running around the entire neighborhood.

An Army flatbed hauled the car away and nothing was ever explained or in the news.

He got a new lease car the same day!

And can you believe they dealt with this very concern on The Bill last week. Course it turned out it was arson for gain and not terrorism. Didn't stop the police from ransacking a house, arresting the wrong man, ripping a part a family (course the father did that bit really though didn't he?), and putting a general scare on.

Maybe if they could just find an innocent Brazilian to shoot in the next few days everything will calm down....

I am relieved that this was defused.

I am concerned with the use of the word ‘massive’ for a car bomb. You can only fit so much explosives into a car (especially a European car).

I hope this is not media hype.

Why is this not in Breaking News? Seems like an urgent matter if heretofore unknown terrorists are on the loose in London. The car bomb angle is most troubling in that it demonstrates that these clowns are not bothering with meticulous planning at this point.

At any rate, they dodged a bullet and I’m glad no one was hurt.

I bet he parked the silver Mercedes containing gas cylinders on a GRASSY GASSY KNOLL.

Actually, the DUer's are saying it is a US plant from Bush, intended to get Gordon Brown's support in the war on terror.

Just one of the thousands of reasons we call them moonbats.

In answer to your first two questions, about the UK, I don’t know what is really going on with Britain, which I visited for the first time about 3 years ago. On the surface, British life looks pretty normal, but that country, like ours, is no longer “for” the people who live there as Brits, and are there as traditional Brits in the sense that their lineage goes back many generations AS Brits. THAT is the way the world should be, but things have gotten out of hand. The tipping point has been reached in the West in general, with this “glorious mosaic” that also includes huge populations of aliens with different cultural “requirements”, worst and most intractable being Islamists, moderate or otherwise. No one seems to realize ANYWHERE just how subtle this infiltration has been , and just how culpable WE are in aiding and abetting it. THEY can always “play dumb” and plead innocence as to why they are here, and that plays right into the dumb and innocent denial that the Western governments are still in the grip of. Nations in the West

are making a HUGE mistake that could cost them their identities, and sooner rather than later. I know that if I were in charge in Britain, that after the subway and street bombings, EVERY mosque would have been closed,and MASSIVE numbers of Muslims would have been deported. That they weren’t only shows how deeply dysfunctional British institutions are , and how dangerously flabby the sense of British identity has become. Instead, the problems were taken , as they have been elsewhere, and (for some people) here, as nothing more than “police problems”. To think of them any other way, apparently, would make us REALLY nervous, at having to confront our little example of Global Jihad. But THAT is what’s really happening.Thinking of them as police problems presupposes “it is all our fault, we brought this about, these are British citizens, boo hoo hooo, etc.”, which is EXACTLY the reaction the Islamists want and have come to expect. Most of them in Britain, HAVE been on the dole, so Britain has even helped subsidize its own problems. Another HUGE area of denial they’d better get over very soon.
*****************************************
As for Geraldo, your little typo of his last name, brings up the idea of going all the way and calling him “Geraldo Riviera” -—if you’ve ever seen him up close you know how different he looks from the pancake makeup slathered commentator we see on TV. About a year ago, I was in a strip mall in Ft. Lee , New Jersey, just a couple miles down the road from the big CNBC studios, where Geraldo sometimes works from: that explained the arrival in the parking lot of a noisy Harley with a little bow-legged guy wearing one of those idiotic little half-helmets Harley owners wear. He was wearing shorts and as he disembarked from the bike I saw it was Geraldo. He made a bee-line for some little Nail Salon, and walked in and did I know not what , but in a few seconds, was out again, and getting on his bike. I stood there JUST to see how he would leave the parking lot. THere is a HUGE univeral symbol NO LEFT TURN sign on BOTH exits of this strip mall’s parking lot. I knew he would ignore them as he left. He did, turned left and noisily barreled up Lemoine Ave. toward Englewood Cliffs. That is Geraldo “Riviera”,
“Harley Liberal”.

I don’t about Brown setting this up, but with each one of these bungled, foiled near-misses, the islamists look like less and less of a real threat.

Look at this thread. 50 posts, maybe? And half of them are recycled jokes that stopped being funny years ago.

Who benefits when we stop taking the threat seriously?

The DUers are playing right into their hands. But I wouldn’t discount the possibility that these “attacks” are designed to fail.
