    Oh brother, not again. Well if that story's correct, looks like the only injury might be the vermin who perpetrated the thing. That is unless someone planted the detonator in his backpack.

    Yeah, looks like there were very few injuries. I'm in Farringdon today, so no idea how I will get home at the moment...

    Think all the buses are stopped for the moment. Last I heard was that there was a long line of abandoned buses along the road outside. I normally have to take the tube part of the way back too, but that part is closed off.

    I guess it'll just be a long evening...

    Ok it's never pretty, but at least terrorism is only doing bombs. It is very far down the list of nasties.

    If you go down the path of risk analysis, chances of being killed in a terrorist attack are very small. Chances of death by other means are significantly higher.

    I agree with you. Our Church never ever educates us to hate others and other religions. We are, since we were a kid, to love and to care for others, be they poor, handicapped or abandoned. The head of the religion has all the responsibilities in the world to educate them not to hate.

    I fear not to go to London for viewtrips. In fact, I am encouraging my friends and their kids to go for the summer vacation. What these terrorists want is to scare off innocent citizens and create a horiifying atmosphere. If we refrain from going to England just because of that, we will be giving in to these monsters! I hate them, and I will NEVER forgive these terrorists and those who are habouring them.

    Terrorism is a new enemy to our world, every one of us living on this planet. It is more than the damages that their attack has brought about. It is a kind of deviated thinking. In the past, we had the IRA but they are not the same as today's terrorists. The primary difference between IRA and terrorists is IRA's targets were mostly structures. Collateral damages though, did happen. But terrorists target at people. The most frustrating is that they target at innocent people. Another issue posed by terrorism is that there are no entities which constitutes and control the group. They are ... like a network but you can't see and identify until they take actions.

    During the cold war, we have clear enemies. Our missiles had targets so did the other side. We have to study them. I don't know how, but we must find a way to do that.

    The latest news is that special duties have shot dead one suspect in the Stockwell tube station. The suspect fell on his knees aparently, by accident while he was on the run. One of the servicemen grabbed him and pushed him on the ground. When others reached the spot, they shot him. 5 shots. I guess he was trying something really stupid. Bomb is horrible but chemical attack is really the most terrifying. All suspects should be shot on sight because if any device they carry goes off, disaster will follow. 1 dead is better than a hundred.

    I say prayers everyday for British servicemen in the Gulf. We should pray for the safety of every men and wonmen in the country and let's pray God enter these terrorist hearts and stop hurting others.

    Seems like our services are beginning to adopt a "don't **** with us" attitude.

    I say about time.

    I concur. Because the result of letting one of these f***ers slip off, catastrophic events will take place. Defense and alert must never get losen under current situation. Shoot-on-sight. This is domestic pre-emptive counter measure which is the safest by far, before we can think of any other aletrnatives.

    Though the camera system in the city is a bit inconvenient and rude to Londonners, but when the city is under threats; they prove to be extremely useful.

    These terrorists are threatening the world. It's like in the past, the former USSR threatened us using their nuclear weapons. They even set up free-fall type of nuclear rockets in Cuba if one remembers the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962 well before we were born. DO NOT THREATEN us, we are and will become even more united and strike you back with the world largest airforce and navy, and beyond doubt, the most awesome firepower beyond imagination. We have the abilities to create radiating nuclear weapons, we are also able to create non-radiating weapons which produce the destructive power to the same effect. Do you remember the giant bomb we used in Afghanistan? It's only massively heavy that's all. I say, 2 to 3 will certainly destroy the capital of Iran for instance. Maybe it takes 4 to take out the capital of N Korea though considering the population there.
