    Nail bombs, busses and metro's. An unreliable source claims there has been a shooting as well.

    Waiting for more info. Scary since the last one just happened 2 weeks back, usually the timer goes back to 4 years or so.... I hope this is it, I espescially hate nail bombs. Hope things don't end up too bad.

    A friend told me about it, and i wasn't really surprised. I didn't even bother to check the news until now. Terrorism is becoming a common matter, and that scares me.

    If it isn't a copycat then the solution IMO is obvious: Tony did it. Think about it, 4 bombs and nobody dead. That's not a coincidence. That's on purpose. The time the bombs went off is another thing.

    Still it could be a copycat. But if the foreign affairs change towards Iran within the next 4 weeks then I atleast will believe to know what really happened today.

    Actually I was thinking the same....my wife told me (she watched the telly) about it and I didn't check up on the news until a few hours later... and usually I'm instantly reading up on news like this...

    On a brighter note, whee, this is my 666th post since the big crash :)

    Last I heard, the copycat theory ended up not being the case at all. Primary detonations reportedly were successful, but failed to detonate the main charge. One of the subjects reportedly yelled in frustration before throwing down his pack and running, only to be chased by an angry crowd.

    Two in custody.

    That's all I've heard. Who knows how much is true, but if the above report pans out, and they've recovered some of the explosives, that should yield quite a bit of forensic evidence and insight.

    Besides, IMO, being a copycat with a dummy bomb is just, well, retarded. And obviously dangerous to your health. Those Brits may keep a stiff upper lip, but I imagine they carry a stiffer uppercut under the circumstances.

    And another dumbass tried it again and paid the price... last reports say that the police shot one possible suicide bomber, pity he is about certain to die from his wounds.

    London is no slouch when it comes to terrorists. The terrorosts actually do worse with your brain housing group than they do killing folks...its the fear. Typically, they are less offensive than a common street gang. (the exception of course being the trade centers {where I worked, tower 1, I loved that office}.just thugs and murderer's. Im sure SAS is on the alert within the city. I hope so , I gotta go there in 2 months.
