title riped straight from the BBC because i couldnt think of anything myself :p
I could see this here so i thought id post it.
A man has pleaded guilty to conspiring to murder people in a series of bombings on British and US targets.
Dhiren Barot, of north London, planned to use a radioactive "dirty bomb" in one of a series of attacks in the UK, Woolwich Crown Court heard.
This could have been possibly the biggest terrorist plot to date yet theres practicaly no physical evidence at all that suggests the attacks would
ever take place.
Among some of the attacks around the UK and US that would happen simultaneously were a dirty bomb, attacks on the International Monetary Fund, World
Bank buildings, New York Stock Exchange, Citigroup buildings, Prudential buildings and Blow up limousines in underground car parks willed with gas
cylinders and explosives along with a number of other attacks.
Someone try to explain to me how all that makes sense? not to mention why its only been brought up today when the guy was arrested a year ago.
The problems that i have here (and i should probably just list them) are as follows.
They only have 8 men arrested in connection with these planned attacks. 8 men surely isnt enough to make a plan like this work?
Theres no physical evidence that they were even planning to carry out these attacks. Apart from the laptop of course, theres no bombs, no gas, no
If all this was planed and all documented on his computer then why are there specific targets mentioned, some generals ones then just a mention of a
number of other attacks? Why not list all the locations of attacks and what they involved?
Why are the planed attack so erratic? on the one hand you have attacks that were "designed to kill as many innocent people as possible" then on the
other hand you have attacks that were to cause "injury, fear, terror and chaos" but not kill as many people or anyone for that matter.
maybe i'm looking to much into this, dam you ATS ill be wearing a tinfoil hat soon.
Anyway anyone have any thoughts on this?
