3 sought after 2nd car bomb found in London
msnbc. ^ | 06/29/2007

Posted on 06/29/2007 1:26:26 PM PDT by Sleeping Freeper

British authorities were seeking three men Friday after police defused two car bombs that they said could have caused “significant injury or loss of life” in London.

The three men are believed to be from the Birmingham area, a center of radical Islamic unrest in Britain, U.S. officials who had been briefed on the developments told NBC News.

Police said the two cars, a light green and a light blue Mercedes-Benz, were found early Friday morning in London’s theater district. The green Mercedes was defused at the site. The blue Mercedes was not discovered to be a threat until early Friday evening, after it had been issued a parking ticket and towed to an impoundment lot near Hyde Park.

“These vehicles are clearly linked,” said Peter Clarke, chief of Britain’s antiterrorism police. “The discovery of a second bomb is obviously troubling.”

The car bombs were similar to highly destructive explosives used in Iraq and could have killed scores of people, U.S. and British officials told NBC News. British officials warned that the country was facing a “serious and sustained” terrorist threat.

So a buddy of mine has this Irish/muslim theory:

If the guy stays in the car when it blows up, he’s a muslim.

If the guy parks the car and runs away, he’s Irish.

This smacks of the Irish MO...

I just hope no one thinks this says anything at all about Islam. After all, this is typical behavior for all religious people. Islam is a great religion that has brought the world such wonderful things as conversion or the sword, honor killings, suicide bombers, beheadings of infidels in the year 2007, and on and on.

If the drivers leave two kids in the car, run away, then the car blows up, what does that make them.

Well, another story did say that he “staggered” when he dropped off the car. Hmmm.

More: Designed for fuel-air explosion

The first car, which was parked under a blue awning near the popular Tiger Tiger nightclub, just 50 yards from Trafalgar Square, was jammed with gasoline and 18 to 20 boxes of roofing nails. Six to eight tanks of propane, intended to mix with the gasoline in a mist to make a fuel-air explosion, were inside and around the car, counterterrorism officials told NBC News.

Clarke told reporters that the second car was similarly laden with explosives and nails.

U.S. officials told NBC that the devices appeared designed to create a highly explosive bomb of the type that had been seen in Iraq but not, until now, in the West.

Islamist terrorist suspects convicted in recent London cases have spoken of moving up to more deadly fuel-air explosives, authorities said. Metropolitan Police Commissioner Ian Blair said earlier this year that “vehicle-borne weaponry is the greatest danger that we can face.”

You'd stagger too if you were driving a vehicle that was so full of gasoline the fumes could be seen.

They shouldn’t have let them into their country.

Yup. I would have sent them all out of the country and back to their natal and ancestral hell holes on September 21, 2001. I can’t figure out why that wasn’t done.

I figure this is a test of the new PM. If he pulls out of iraq in the next 30-60 days, we'll know exactly what he's made of.

As usual the plots are figured out eventually. Frigen clowns should live in camel shit huts in al Mahmudiya in 130 degree summers with no clean water. Perhaps they would thank their stone idol they live in a country that offers them so many comforts and freedoms.
