Yeah, must be Al-Qaeda because it comes nicely at a time when the propaganda machine isn't doing too well. Nothing like a bomb to frighten the people into running to the gov. for "security".

I find it laughable they know it's a certain group already. Hell, in the past when we were hit with bombs, we only found out it was the IRA long after the fact, or if the IRA left one of their calling cards - the phone call.

It's 95% sure this is "Islamic" terrorism. OK, can we all accept that?

Now, can we get back to getting the facts on the ground? We can argue the politics later, ok?

Can be a group of Islamists. Can be a group of anarchists against G8. Can be the French who smell and want the Olympics. Can be Scientologists. Or can be a bunch of fools who want to buy stocks.

My sincere condolences go out to the victims and their families. To the Londoners here: I wish you and yours the best. Take reasonable precautions, but don't let yourselves be paralyzed by this. Fear is a natural reaction -to not feel it would be stupid, not brave- but don't let it get the better of you. That's what the attackers want (that much, at least, can be said even before we know who they are). You beat them by not letting that happen.
You are in Soviet Russia. It is dark. Grue is likely to be eaten by YOU!

Or maybe somebody, who is interested that the G8 summit revolves around increasing "security" and military forces, rather than environmental issues or combating global poverty...

Like 9/11 happened they should have learned you can kill thousands but you can't kill the heart of the people who stand together. When will Islamists learn from the great peacemakers who said no to violence. If you are violent someone will find an excuse to do the same back to you. If you are peaceful and prove you are a victim the world will join you.

Since this thread is basically dead now....

Super: You have a very good point. Just look how the US has lost almost all international support in the last years.

Then don't be surprised when people fight back after ?US/UK aggression on their people.

The sheer hypocrisy is mind-numbing. We bomb them - it's all just and for a good cause. They bomb us - they are terrorists and agents of evil.

No the hypocrisy is how they kill each other and allow their own people to oppress them. If someone else wants to help it's a ****ing occupation. If they use their brains they can use occupation or whatever for their advantage. You know, like build up their countries and ****ing stop fighting about who got the better religion and ****. They ****ing kill even over simple **** like a woman who says she doesn't believe in God no more. It's all ****ing hotheaded ****.
