Looks like things are slowly getting back to normal. No-one is left trapped at Kings Cross Station, the London underground is still shut down, an emegency number has been released but I can't find it.

There are some buses back in sevice, although the situation is constantly changing due to continuing bomb threats:

BBC Story

I think the majority of the "walking wounded" are in the pubs having a quiet one and trying to work out what the hell went wrong. I'm waiting to hear from 3 friends in London, if anyone else is waiting, don't worry, the networks are pretty much paralysed but things are calming down now.

What a day! Have all the London ATSers checked in yet?

I've heard that they have decided that it was 4 bombs, not the originally thought 7. That is still so horrible, but I we can be thankful it wasn't worse...

I think I've already figured out what 07/07/2005 is symbolic of

7 + 7 + [ 2+0+0+5] = *7-7-7*

Like how you hit the jackpot on slots in casinos? :\. Terrorists and their sick, sadistic symbolism.

I'm just wondering what major city will be next...

But i dont see how an oversurge of electric can take the top of a bus??


I saw an interview of several Brittish authorities and one of them, "Tim something" said that at first there was a report of "an oversurge of electricity" because in the control stations they saw that electricity was cut off in several places at the same time, and that's the reason it was first reported as there being a power oversurge.

He also said that a few moments later there was a report of a train having derailed which they thought could have cut one of the powerlines of the transport system in London causing the oversurges in electricity. As more information came in they realized that the cause for all of this was several bombs that had exploded.

I think it should be pointed out there was absolutely no warning of the attack and no intelligence or at least no reports of any intelligence pointing to an attack.

The terror threat level had just been reduced slightly but still was very high no doubt because the G8 were here rather than an expected attack.

There is no credible reports of the israeli embassy being advised of the attack and if there was it would probably be a standard response of a terrorst threat and all foreign embassies would be advised as would all member of the government.

For those of you who think that it was done by the UK/US government, that is just stupid and it is far too early to make any statement about who is to blame anyway. The difference you will see here from the 9/11 attacks is that the british have more restraint than GW has. Just look at the response of our spanish friends after the madrid bombings. They like us have lived under the threat of domestic terrorism for many many years.

please dont take this as an anti-american statement, it isn't I know the american people stood firm and proud in the days after 9/11 and the whole world was proud of you. This is meant as an anti-bush statement!

sorry to disappoint the conspiracy theorists here but there will be no marchall law, no draconian laws, ID card would not have stopped this attack. The only people who are going to suffer from this are the victims and families of the innocent people murdered on their way to work.

The racists will freely walk our streets while our british muslim brothers and sisters will be syubjected to racial abuse and hate attacks and many of them will be afraid to leave their home for fear of such hateful criminal acts

And for the many racists on the board (you know you you are!) the british muslim council was one of the first to condemn the criminal acts carried out this morning.

This is a great coup from Tony Blair as he will now gain the support of the US and Europe.
If you saw the pictures of Blair speaking with the other G8 leaders you could see Bush and Chirac's very sad faces. Bush nodded occasionally during as speech as he is the most experienced in dealing with these things.
At least Britain will now have new Anti-Terrorism laws which get rid of our civil rights.

I just wanted to post a couple good links. I apologize if they have been posted.

London rocked by terror attacks



At least two people have been killed and scores injured after three blasts on the Underground network and another on a double-decker bus in London.

UK Prime Minister Tony Blair said it was "reasonably clear" there had been a series of terrorist attacks.

He said it was "particularly barbaric" that it was timed to coincide with the G8 summit. He is returning to London.

An Islamist website has posted a statement - purportedly from al-Qaeda - claiming it was behind the attacks.


Please visit the link provided for the complete story.


Map of the Blast Locations

Blasts occurred:
    - Between Aldgate East and Liverpool Street tube stations
    - Between Russell Square and King's Cross tube stations
    - At Edgware Road tube station
    - On bus at Tavistock Square


Minute-by-minute account - In reverse order



9:41 London Underground reports a second explosion at a subway station in northwest London.

9:33 Witnesses say London Underground told them services are suspended after "power surge."

9:27 Metronet, the subway maintenance company, says power surge has caused explosion in London tube station.

9:25 Police say "there are walking wounded" in London's financial district.

9:15 am British Transport Police tell news agencies an explosion has struck London's financial district in the area near Liverpool railway station.

Just heard a Police Chief, or someone like that, say that London was already on its 2nd highest level of Terrorism Alert. So if 4 bombs can go off while at that level, these damm I.D. cards will probably be speeded up now, and i doubt the shackles will stop there.
Things are settling down a lot now it seems, but i did hear that there will be thorough investigations of the tubes, mat be closed longer than expected.

I haven't read this entire thread nor will I any time soon. But if anyone is wondering how this is affecting the U.S. Military Stateside and Overseas, I've got some updates for you. What I am about to tell you isn't classified, it's basic information and fairly obvious. At 1200Zulu, 2100L/9:00PM Japan (Pacific Time) the base I am stationed at announced that we were now into the next level of force proctection. Also known as FPCON (Force Protection Condition) Bravo as opposed to the second lowest, which is FPCON ALPHA. If you're not familiar with FPCON conditions now would be a good time for that in order for you to further understand how the U.S. Military is assesing this terrorists threat on a worldwide basis.

Since we are now at FPCON Bravo I still have access to my work computer to do simply anything. But as soon as we reach FPCON Charlie, which is the next highest security condtion, I will hopefully be able to post one last time to inform you guys so the rest of the world could know how the U.S. Military is being affected by this. ..And if anyone expects me to have any more secret insights as to what "really happened", I have no answers, except for the basics and thensome.

Godless, Take Care, and Thanks for Your Time,

-------U.S. Air Force-------
~ Airman Eric Adamo ~

P.S. Goodluck with any digging and requiring certain information that "they" don't want you to have. I'm on "your" side all the way, not "theirs" in terms of the rutheless conspiracy secret bull#.

I wonder when will the people realize that it's not Bush/Blair/NWO/Illuminati killing them because of oil, ID cards or anything else, but (surprise, surprise) muslim fundamentalists.

So who is going to be the first nut case to say that these attacks were planned and carried out by the G8 leaders? I think I'll check conspiracy forum now...

here is the full text of the statement from Secret Organisation Group of al-Qaeda


In the name of God, the merciful, the compassionate, may peace be upon the cheerful one and undaunted fighter, Prophet Muhammad, God's peace be upon him.

Nation of Islam and Arab nation: Rejoice for it is time to take revenge against the British Zionist Crusader government in retaliation for the massacres Britain is committing in Iraq and Afghanistan. The heroic mujahideen have carried out a blessed raid in London. Britain is now burning with fear, terror and panic in its northern, southern, eastern, and western quarters.

We have repeatedly warned the British Government and people. We have fulfilled our promise and carried out our blessed military raid in Britain after our mujahideen exerted strenuous efforts over a long period of time to ensure the success of the raid.

We continue to warn the governments of Denmark and Italy and all the Crusader governments that they will be punished in the same way if they do not withdraw their troops from Iraq and Afghanistan. He who warns is excused.

God says: "You who believe: If ye will aid (the cause of) Allah, He will aid you, and plant your feet firmly."


taken from bbc news site: news.bbc.co.uk...

One bit caught my eye


Britain is now burning with fear, terror and panic in its northern, southern, eastern, and western quarters


in their dreams
they'll be the ones burning with fear, terror and panic when MI5 and scotland yard get their hands on 'em, just ask any of the IRA terrorists what sort of treatment they got when caught!

And they will be caught...

This is awful.

Terrorists always ruin everything.

Today: Beautiful weather. Everyone in London was happy they got the Olympics. Yesterday I was driving around with the windows open listening to the B-Side of Abbey Road. There was a nice breeze blowing off the lake and I was feeling really good.

Bali: Place was like heaven. I remember it was in October and I was at the gym and saw it at the news. The big smoke cloud coming up really pissed me off.

9/11: It's my dad's birthday Very pleasent sunny day. Finished watching a good game of Monday Night Football and took the day off. I was about to hit the golf course when I heard "A plane has just hit the World Trade Center."

What the hell is there problem anyways? Anyone who thinks they are the good guys should think again.

To everyone in London, get a drink, smoke a big blunt, listen to some good rock music, and enjoy how good it is to be alive.

Tommorrow we will get the guys who did this. Man, I want to mess them up big time.

If I got my hands on them, I would tie them to one of those wooden chairs and just keep hitting them in the nose. I don't care if it took days, I would keep hitting them in the nose until there head bashed apart.
