    Default Car Crashes Into Glasgow Airport

    This just happened about an hour and a half ago, I was watching BBC at the time. Thoughts?

    It's very strange.

    although it does seem delibrate.

    There is a chance that it is an accident though...

    And on TV there's a guy who took down a guy from the car! Now that is a brave guy!

    A flaming car crashes its way into an airport doorway. A day after bombs are discovered by nightclubs in london. Doubt it's an accident.

    If it were then why in the world did the men bother to waste time in a burning vehicle to guide it into the doorway? Instead of sensibly stoping and running out when it first caught on fire?

    The question is; how will Britain respond to these attacks?

    Her Britannic Majesty's Government shall respond by invading and annexing a foreign country mildly connected with those people who crashed into the building.

    However, the Scottish "government" (since it was a crime, and commited in Scotland and therefore under the jurisdiction of the Scottish "government") shall respond by saying everything is under control.

    This was clearly an attack. Luckily, like yesterday, not by very bright terrorists. I wonder if there are any other imminent attacks planned. Each of the three so far were narrowly averted and could've cause major injury.

    In the shed.

    Given that there so far seem to have been zero injuries I'm not impressed, come on, if you're going to attack the UK you need to gut the centre of one of our cities or blow the top off Big Ben.

    The IRA have desensitised us.

    These are some dumb terrorists
    There, but for the grace of God, goes John Bradford

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    Witness Jackie Kennedy said a man got out of the car, went to the back and pulled out a can of fuel, which he poured on himself and ignited.

    I'd say it's just as likely, or more likely, that this is related to some random loonies having fun or some criminal stuff(gone bad), as terrorism.

    we will keep catching or killing them.

    with any luck, they will manage to kill themselves.

    I believe that this is the most significant terrorist attack in recent Scottish history (by dint of being the only I can recall) and suggests that the heavily London centric mentality of terrorists is possibly not as strong as it used to be. Plus its worth noting that it might have worked a lot better if they'd made the gas cylinders they apparently had explode, or if they'd actually had brains.

    I'd be more worried now about follow up attacks in central England, where there are large muslim communities and where such incidents just aren't expected. Although thats partly because I'm going to London on holiday this July; better wear my bombproof undies.

    Well, there was Lockerbie...though that one wasn't technically aimed at Scots.

    oops, this was supposed to be part of the last post:

    Brown Sweeps In On Staged Terror
    Car Bomb Attacks Herald New Wave Of Strategy of Tension

    Paul Joseph Watson
    Prison Planet
    Saturday, June 30, 2007


    The discovery of two unexploded car bombs in London and a bizarre incident today in which a flaming jeep was crashed at high speed into a terminal building at Glasgow Airport could herald a new wave of staged terror carefully timed to coincide with Prime Minister Gordon Brown's installation at Number 10.

    The hysteria reached new heights this afternoon when a Jeep Cherokee ploughed into a terminal building at Glasgow Airport before two Asian men on fire exited and were tackled by holidaymakers and police.

    Despite the fact that in both this incident and yesterday's events the cars involved were filled with nothing more deadly than gasoline, which is hardly a carnage-inducing explosive, the British government and the media have embarked upon a fresh assault of fearmongering and are hyping the inevitability that more attacks are imminent.

    Gordon Brown has swept into Downing Street with the aid of a new injection of the strategy of tension.

    What fear mongering?

    One newsie called them idiots.

    These guys are boring, the IRA mortered 10 Downing Street, John Major was under the cabinet table with all his ministers!

    Since 2001 they've pulled off one attack, which seems to have lost them their only four competant operatives and in those four blasts the total casualties were 52 dead 700 injured. That breaks down as 13 dead 166 injured per blast.

    That's nasty but it caused little disruption or material damage and the per-blast casualties were worse in some PIRA or RIRA attacks.

    From a purely callous point of view they're pathetic and no match for the home grown terrorists we had to deal with for thirty years.

    A bit like a 99 without the steps.
    There are times I wish they’d just ban everything- baccy and beer, burgers and bangers, and all the rest- once and for all. Instead, they creep forward one apparently tiny step at a time. It’s like being executed with a bacon slicer.
