Confirmed that there were seven blasts, as certain as it can be that they were terrorist attacks. Six tube stations Kings Cross, Liverpool Street, Russel Square, Aldgate East, Edgware Road and Moorgate
plus a bus at Tavistock Place. Lady K pretty much takes this route to work but is sitting on the couch watching the news.

Two confirmed deaths so far but there will be more from the bus.
My thoughts are with all in London. This makes me absolutely sick. It was exactly a year ago when my wife and I were in London with our best friends and I can say that I had an amazing time. The people were great, very hospitable, helpful and always willing to go out of their way to answer our questions.

One of the best places I have ever been and to think that there are people out there with sick minds that want to destroy cities and peoples lives. Mad Frown Frown

I'm feeling ill this morning Frown

It has been a hectic day here in London to say the least. Lots of helicopters overhead throughout the day, as we are across Grosvenor Square from the American Embassy, which has been blocked off. All public transport in central London is closed and many areas are apparently also blocked off, so moving about, even on foot, is complicated to say the least.

I am about to leave my office for the first time since I arrived this morning, to walk back to my hotel (which is not so far). The Seaquams are fine if anyone was worried, they are scheduled to leave town tomorrow but who knows. I believe that all other London-based regular contributors to these forums are also fine (Aussie in in Cornwall as I recall) but have not heard yet from BirDungy.

The British are dealing with this admirably, as anyone who knows them would expect.
Thanks to all for the kind wishes. My family and I are all fine and were luckily not in the vicinity of the blasts.

I couldn't agree more that the perpetrators of these filthy acts should hung, drawn and quartered in Smithfield Market.

London will bounce back from this - this is a truly resilient city full of practical people. I was here during the late '80's and early 90's when the IRA campaign was in full swing and and people will quickly move on.

They should be caged and put on tour, so you could pay to see them, and piss on them.


After which I can remember a scene in "Pulp Fiction" that can be replayed on these bastards..or maybe "Deliverance"...with broomsticks of course
My daughter works in London and lives in Leicester Square. She phoned and said she was fine but she said it was a very scary feeling being so near the bombings. The Brits are a strong and determined people who won't give in to these lowly cowards.

Perhaps this is just to keep the thread wine related, so it won't get yanked.

England, our hearts and prayers go out to you today.

Honestly though, what do these cowardly f**ks think this is going to do for them? Do they think the rest of the world will simply say "Uncle" and go home? If anything, continued terrorist strikes will eventually lead the non-Islam world to conclude they've had enough, and call for real for the next round of crusades or "Last Jihad". But this time it won't be fought with swords, more likely tactical nukes.
How many US and coalition bombs blew up innocent citizens of Iraq and Afganistan? How many terrorist bombs blew up people on 911 and this incident? They can't possibly win using U.S. war tactics, so they developed their own; terrorism, suicide bombings, car bombs, planting bombs etc. It's effective, very effective. It's a war, and they don't follow any "rules of war". Why should they have to?

yes, it is a war, and what exactly makes you different from Nazi sympathizers during the WW II?
Renquist, at the least your logic is faulty. At the worst, you lack intelligence. (How's that for a gentle euphemism?) Any civilians in Afghanistan or Iraq killed by allied bombs were unintended victims of actions against miltary targets. These barbarians in London didn't strike at anything resembling military targets; they intentionally killed civilians.
