7. the muslim community in the us is too small
to hide or harbor al qaeda cells. There might be one or two, but most likely there aren't any. In London and Madrid the muslim community is large enough to support active groups, but not large enough that whomever is making decisions wanted to use up their resources with suicide attacks. Instead in Madrid the group appeared to be intending to strike again when they were caught, and presumably the same is true in London. In Iraq there is no shortage of human resources and suicide bombings are extremely effective both psychologically and physically, however the most common form of attack is the IED, which is the more traditional 'homicide bomber' attack (to use the reichwing meme correctly) not suicide bombs.

Of course everything could be not what it seems, but I think for now assuming that the London attack is what it has been called: an al qaeda attack, is a prudent assumption.
