Well I'm not fond of religious discussion, for the very reason stated earlier, it usually erupts into nastiness, but the statement that most of the world's wars were religiously based really isn't arguable. It's a fact.

Btw, I finally got hold of my friend in Ealing. He does work right near 1 explosion site and in fact came out of the tube station on that line earlier that day. But he's fine. Helluva time getting home that night, but at least he got there eventually.

I really wanted to visit london after these bombings. I live in manhattan and 4 yrs ago when we got hit, I ran into 15 or 20 brits in a 2 bl. radius around my street. They had come expressly to be supportive, knowing that tourism would disappear after the attacks. Like to be able to return the favor but the prices are still too high. Probably due in part to the exchange rate at present. Even though the £ dropped a bit against the $ after the bombings, it's still about 1.75 to 1

I was watching Euronews today, a satellite news channel, and it was showing an interview that a Spanish news channel did with a young British muslim women in London three days after the bombings. I'm not surprised why it wasn't shown on British television news as I think the reaction would have been very nasty indeed. This young woman was asked how she felt about the bombings, she said she was sad it had happened however she then said her younger brother 'jumped for joy' when he heard that bombs had gone off and people had been killed. This is what we, the British people, are up against, this idea that some of these people believe that it is good to kill and maime other people. As for my personal feelings about that particular 'brother', those I will keep to myself as they are not suitable for this forum!

We had that here too after 9/11. Were I running things, those people would be living elsewhere now.

were i running things, more severe, painful things would have happened to them.

Good to know you managed to contact him mate. My Dad also works very close to where the bus bomb exploded. Took me ages to get through to him as the phone networks were down.

Yeah he's fine. NIghtmare getting home that night but otherwise, fine. Security is way beefed up here too. We had tactical squad cops with automatic weapons riding on subway trains.

While watching the events unfold on the news, the day of the bombings, and listening to survivor accounts of how they escaped from the scene of the explosions an idea came to mind. How about equiping all tube trains, wherever they are, with 'emergency boxes' containing dust masks, safety goggles, flashlights and special hammers to break door and window glass should an event like this, and I truly hope it doesn't, occur again or an accident which could produce the same problems of dust, smoke etc. At least this might help to reduce the injuries caused by inhilation of dust and smoke and allow the emergency services more time to deal with those seriously injured ?
