Is 6/30 going to be the next 9/11?

Saturday, June 30, 2007
What on earth is happening in the UK the past few days? The British government has raised their terror level to the highest level possible - CRITICAL. This follows the two car bombs found recently in central London AND today, an SUV loaded with gasoline was driven into the terminal of the Glasgow airport. The US has, as yet, not chosen to change their terror alert level in response to what's happened in the UK.
Granted the car bombs were discovered before anything exploded or people were hurt, but you have to guess that this is not how Gordon Brown wanted to start off his stint as Prime Minister.

My fear is that these are all part of a plan to have a big attack on July 7.

This is such bad news. And we have high-ranking government officials going on record saying meaningless banalities such as "It is unfortunate, but these things happen" (Jack Straw). No, these things DON'T just happen.

Likewise, Gordie is now saying he'll do the best he can to protect the British public. Well, I'd like to know just how he's going to do that. Is he going to ask the police to check every single car that drives past in any given spot around the UK? Ask every driver to go through checkpoints? These things cannot be policed, it's that simple. And that scary.

Let's get the hell out of Iraq and reconsider our position in the Middle East, then I'll feel a little bit more secure. Until then, I'll try to stay out of London. And shopping malls, bridges and tunnels leading to the big city, airports and train stations, the Underground...

May be something; may be "nothing". But one thing's for sure, it's a royal pain in the ass. It just makes you feel uneasy. And of course that is the whole point. I really hope Barbara (above) is wrong...

I hope Barbara's wrong too. I guess we'll all find out pretty soon. I've been avoiding the news today but I haven't heard whether or not these are definatively tied to Al-Qaeda or the mid east.

Red - I totally agree. I think that the west should get out of Iraq and reconsider their foreign policies towards the mid-east. Unfortunately because of the mess the west has made over there, pulling out completely and suddenly might do more damage now than sticking around...difficult to say.
