This is kind of frenzy, seems like confusion in the ranks or something. All suspect vehicles are now potentially explosive when before they would've been thought as been at most stolen untill investigation.


Tell you what, next time you see a suspiscious car parked out near your street or anywhere else, you see smoke comming off it, you go up and check it out, muck about in there for a while oks see how long you live for oks....

Was the Glasgow Airport bomb at all close to actually going off? If the car was on fire then i'm assuming they were just hoping for the canisters to eventually blow up or something? Does that realistically happen when they get too hot from fire?


Yes. Heat any pressurised substance and without a means to release the pressure, there is usually an almighty bang. With a flammable gas under pressure to the point where it is liquid, there is a real possibility of an explosion of some force.

I take it the fire crews had to put it out as fast as they could?


Standard procedures usually have gas cylinders constantly cooled by water from the pumps for at least 24 hours to ensure there is no explosion.

Well at least I'd check if the smoke is coming from the ashtray before I call the bomb squad to blow it up. And fyi where I'm from we dont get car bombs very often, I only recall one in my lifetime so I'm not expecting to be blown up anytime soon.

The news is now saying that 2 of the 5 arrested were physicians in the UK. Thats rather interesting.

Interesting...


Scotland Yard said two people were arrested on the M6 in Cheshire overnight - a 26-year-old man and 27-year-old woman.

The man has been identified by the BBC as Dr Mohammed Asha, from Iran.

Emphasis mine....

I was waiting for the Iran word to come up. I expected it to come up earlier but here it is.

that is interesting! very interesting news...

Also,
Bush has just hailed Gordon Brown for the strong response

[edit]

Skynews just said something about "professionals" being involved and still at large. Something about more attacks coming...its was sketchy.

It was bound to happen sooner or later, at least from some quarters.

Whether he had any connections to any organs of State in Iran is another matter.

Incidentally, here is a pretty good pic of the burnt out Jeep at Glasgow:

i wouldn't use those words to describe the image.

Sky have gone silent regarding the professional element, news has slowed down.

WOW if true that certainly could explain why they have the hospital in complete lockdown perhaps they fear there may be more doctors involved.

The doctor element is concerning. If such educated persons can be swayed into extremism, then it says alot about the extent of the problem.

Also, alot of Dr's and Nurses in the UK are from overseas. My own doctor is a Muslim. I know one shouldn't generalise, but then again, I am surprised a doctor would be involved anyway.

what about the Hippocratic oath?

Have you forgot Osama himself? Jeez the perception that terrorists are usually uneducated and poor seems to reach many minds.

That's not exactly what it says. It says that the US learned of potential terror attacks against the airport, but the 'kept them secret'. That doesn't mean that they didn't pass them along to other security agencies in other countries.

'kept secret' could mean many things ... most of the time it means that the info isn't shared with the general public.
