As for the poster above who doesn't think it is an "attack", I think you need to re-evaluate the evidence, mate. I suspect you haven't actually read much into what transpired at all.


Yeah I've been reading around and looking at photographs and I still cant find anything that would spell 'terrorist attack'. I mean the evidence at this point don't seem like enough to me since I can come up with multiple theories for each piece of 'evidence'. It's like it's been automatically being called 'terrorist attack' without even considering other possibilities.

Suspect device was found at the hospital the burned terrorist was taken to and has been dealt with. The man is in critical condition.

The Jeep is in an unstable condition.

Cannabis doesn't give you any courage. It might make you uneasy in public and lethargic in general. I think it is a bit of a stretch to think that "weed" made them do it and a cop out if anyone tries to use it as an excuse.

Honestly..... Let's try to stick to the facts rather than spouting random nonsense.

Scottish police are now reporting that "a suspect device" was found at the hospital that was evacuated. This is different than the "vest" reported earlier?

As for motive:


The Times newspaper reported that police distributed a document to nightclubs two weeks ago warning of the threat from “vehicle-borne explosive devices”—car bombs. The document, prepared by the National Counterterrorism Security Office, took the form of general counterterrorism advice for British clubs.

Intelligence officials were examining a post to an Islamist Web site—hours before the cars were found—that suggested Britain would be attacked for awarding a knighthood to the novelist Salman Rushdie and for intervening in Muslim countries.

My thoughts exactly. People only care when it's on their soil.



Not true, when it happens thousands of miles away people can disassociate themselves with it. When it happens in the one place you thought safe then it's a real kick in the teeth.

I'm not ashamed to admit that whenever they report an attack in the Middle East that I don't sit down and get the full story, I'm desensitized towards it, but when it happens in the country I love then I sit up and pay more attention.

I can't see this situation getting any better, it seems that the war has caught up with us again. Then only thing we can do is to stand strong and not let these bastards get to us.

is it true the burned guy is dead then as was mentioned earlier that US networks had reported it?

That is scary! I wonder if they will now search the local hospitals to where the car bombs were in London in case devices were planted there also. A suspect device does not always mean bomb, but if the Jeep did maximum damage and they then set off a bomb in the hospital?


Glasgow and London ARE bing linked

He got 90% burns, we know that, apparently the blast was such that it blew his clothes off and took most of his skin off as described by one witness.

He likened it to some thing out of thriller....

But i did read back earlier that it was reported that he was dead, what are the chances of him surviving after that?

In the UK people from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh are usually grouped together and referred to as Asian.

Move westwards from there and you move into 'Middle Eastern' territory

Once you move further to the east, Burma, Vietnam, Thailand, China etc these are generally referred to as 'Oriental' (from the East)

I gotta say, being from the uk, i would/could still refer to them as Asians, or is that what you ment?

Ok, I see where this mindset comes from. I've been watching the news reports from youtube and they refer to this as an 'attack' done by 'terrorist' continously. No wonder noone seems to question this incident.

Well technically they are Asians. But people from the east of Burma are more generaly referred to as Oriental.

I have to admit I am being forced to say that, as my wife who is Thai is tightly squeezing my goolies. and if I call her asian, she may hiccup

Oh, and just saw the clip where PM Brown thanks the emergency services where he says 'incidents yesterday in london and this _attack_ today in glassgow'

I think you'll find there's quite a few questions been raised and theories flying about. This may be being taken more seriously than the London episodes because something definitely happened.

The device in the hospital that caused an evacuation was on the suspect that was taken there. Does that sway you at all?
