The only question is, WHICH terrorists? Islamic fundamentalists? Some disaffected offshoot of the Provos (the "Real IRA" or a similar group)? Anti-globalisation anarchists aiming to disrupt the G8 summit? Without any real evidence, it's too soon to tell.

Well....

I am sorry for those who are caught in a tragedy. But lets not jump to conclusions.

In the Oklahoma City Bombing everyone was ready to fly over to the Middle-East and start bombing and it turned out that the guy was from here. NOT THAT THIS IS THE CASE HERE, but just that it could be.

Good luck our friends from across the ocean.

5. It could even be the old IRA fire jumping to life....
I believe it is simply a warning of what they can expect in 2012.

Had NY gotten the nod for the Olympics, it would have been here.

Had Moscow gotten the nod, it would have been THERE.

Simply a preview . . . personal opinion only

6. We have been Conditioned
Note that as soon as it was said terrorist attacked people assumed Al-Qaeda.

8. Look to see what the end result of this is
the British people rallying round Tony Blair and pushing for more British troops in the "war on terror"?

Blair's ratings go up?

Bush's go up?

This smells...How convenient...

My heart goes out to the families of those lost...
