    How on earth do you stop a totally isolated group of homegrown terrorists making bombs out of easily obtained chemicals and walking into a train or bus?

    I'm sitting in an office down the road from Warren Street and there have been quite a few police cars rushing up the road.
    Let's not assume the worst yet.

    I donīt think it is serious, but still: Three incidents in the subway and also a tiny explosion on a bus/train. Maybee the bomb didnīt acted as it should have done?

    Letīs hope it isnīt as bad as the explosions two weeks ago.

    One of the reports mentioned that a rucksack bomb exploded, but went off as a dud... and that the would be suicide bomber didnt die. There's someone the Police might want to have a few words with.

    The thing is though, when I first heard about the last bombings, they were saying it was a power surge that caused a small explosion with a few "walking wounded". Then over the next hour or two it turned into a small terror attack, then there were 2 deaths, then 5 then 20 etc... I reckon it is done this way to avoid mass panic. It may be a lot worse than has been reported so far. Lets hope Im totally wrong!!!

    Hopefully something's just gone bad somewehre, and it's not another piece of murder. Regardless, Proleteriat said what I would have.

    EDIT:Cut out the second part. It can be done later.

    Four reported bombs they think now, apparently one suicide bomber attempted to blow himself up but the bomb didnt go off.

    These guys make me sick.

    Last time the news about bombs were out in International networks way before the 'power surge' story was removed by the local media...If someone from abroad is watching and has fresher info please post....

    It doesnt look very bad, it looks more like something failed, I hope it is a false alarm or something. Lets hope everyone is ok.

    BBC are saying explosions are detonators only - not bombs.

    If the would be bomber survived then the police might be able to get some information out of the beast. Hopefully...

    could be that he survived. if the bomb failed and only the detonator worked its possible that the injured person they mention is the bomber...


    ...its a plausible scenario, this is how we eliminated our local terrorism in Greece...

    So far the police say they are not treating this as a major incident so hopefully this means casualties are at a minimum. The driver of the bus, which has a bomb go off on the upper floor said everyone got out fine with no injuries.

    Only 1 confirmed injury. This is not serious.

    Hopefully there will be no disruption to the cricket.

    It currently appears to have been either a hoax, or a series of dud bombs. Regardless, this is still incredibly offensive. The disruption will be awful too.

    I'm thinking more along the lines of slowly removing the bomber's skin and various small body parts until the animal's entire life history has become an open book...

    Targeting is the difference. Terrorist target innocents. Dealing with the guilty and getting information to find their networks is a whole different matter.

    My sympathies to all Londoners, I hope noone was injured (besides the scumbag).

    Red Harvest, The terrorist's choir of apologists would attack you if you didn't give them a Koran, a holy piece of fabric in which to store aforementioned Koran, the time to pray five times a day, light excercise, all the lawyers they want, and you can't hold them even if you know they're going to kill more if you release them. And you must give them a moist toilette 3 times a day. Especially if it's at a tropical paradise, like, say Gitmo.
