Terrorist Attack in London

I can't understand how someone can actually DO anything like this.

Are all members and relatives OK?

Re: Terrorist Attack in London

I heard about it at school, and I'm kind of worried about my boyfriend. He lives in South London, however, so I think he'll be fine (the attacks were in central).

I think it was suicide bombers who bombed a bus, several underground trains, and King's Cross station. Al-Quaeda admitted he was responsible, and Tony Blair said that we would be getting them back.......
That's what I head in last lesson.

I don't want a world war 3. We need peace......:(

I hope everyone, and everyone everyone knows, is safe.

It's the universal truth, along with the fact that ferrets'll rule the world.

Re: Terrorist Attack in London

I think it's because England is America's ally, and London is the capital of England.

Re: Terrorist Attack in London

I heard about it cycling home from work. I heard the end of the news report on Radio 1. It didn't make any sense for another 15 minutes when I heard the news update. It's dispicable

It is like they think "We will kill and maim innocent people, they will be so much in fear that they will then do anything we ask".

What is their point? They want us in their power. We, human beings, are not slaves or toys!

Re: Terrorist Attack in London

And they strike again! This time it seems they weren't very clever at making their bombs.

And the best thing - PLENTY of evidence. All power to the crime scene investigators!

Two weeks. The attacks will be every two weeks.

Re: Terrorist Attack in London

How will you know? Just because there was an attack yesterday and two weeks ago, it doesn't mean its going to happen every two weeks. Some man got shot oday. The police was chasing him and he kept running in the underground and got shot and died.

Re: Terrorist Attack in London

He got shot five times in the head.
Terrorist attacks are normally well planned, they'll probably be trying regular attacks just like clockwork to show organisation and attempt to inspire fear.

No - because people would catch on and not go out every two weeks.

That's the general idea of generating fear.

Re: Terrorist Attack in London

The man that got 5 times was innocent!!

If you ask me, the terroists havea reason to be annoyed at the western world. We think we can invade any country we want, bomb the hell out of it, murder and beat and reap the innocent and POW's and we expect them to take it lying down!!

They could say we are the real terrorists
