Nuclear device goes off in London? perfect excuse to nuke the afgan rebels. Wipe the country off the map. While we are at it, who else is harbouring terrorists (and oil)?
Nuking Afghanistan is about as ineffective and expensive as dumping tons of caviar over its mountains. That's just an exceptionally silly notion.

Please excuse my ignorance, but how does Al-Qa'ida have nuclear bombs?
Since this is a conspiracy website I am going to go ahead and say what I think.
This is if actually true proves that Al-Qa'ida/bin laden and the US government are all one, and if these "terrorists" actually have nukes they where supplied by the US. Its all part of the US plan to conquer the world.
First they move into the middle east then Europe ect...
I mean they killed the indigenous people of America and took their land, they could do it again but in a more complex and sophisticated way.
France’s Vigipirate system, Europe’s most expensive anti-terror program, was designed to fight what it calls the growing terrorist threat. With troops patrolling the streets it is feared that France is now just one step from a police state.
French Prime Minister Francois Fillon says troops are required because France bombing Libya threatens a terror attack at home. One can now find soldiers at shops, tourist sites, government buildings, train stations, airports, schools and churches. But experts say the system does not even work. “The main feature of terrorism is that it is impossible to foresee,” believes Bertrand Badie, from Paris Institute of Political Studies. Vigipirate’s real target is not to catch terrorists, claims one investigator, but to monitor the public.
Moe Seager, an independent journalist says it is easy to persuade people that there could be a terrorist at a metro station. It is easy then for people in France to believe: “Well, they have a right to listen to my phone calls (which they do), they have a right to monitor my emails, Facebook, because they’re only protecting us,” says Seager.
Critics like Michel Collon have dubbed the Vigipirate system “Vichypirate”. Vichy was France’s fascist regime in World War II. It spied and informed on people, and targeted ethnic minorities. The French government today stands accused of doing the same to its own citizens.
Ayman al-Zawahiri's Russian Adventure By JR Nyquist
A fascinating piece by Andrew Higgins and Alan Cullison recently appeared in The Wall Street Journal [July 2] with the title: "How a Secret, Failed Trip to Chechnya Turned Key Plotter's Focus to America and bin Laden." The key plotter in this case was 9/11 mastermind and bin Laden's Egyptian lieutenant, Ayman al-Zawahiri.
The article's title suggests that Zawahiri's failure to settle in Chechnya (due to his "detention" by the KGB/FSB in 1996-97) led him to Afghanistan and an alliance with bin Laden. But according to ranking U.S. terrorism expert, Yossef Bodansky, Egyptian Jihad leader Zawahiri was preparing a massive terrorist assault on America as early as 1993, years before he "disappeared" into Russia for six months. Dressed in Western-style clothing with his beard shaved, the university-educated Zawahiri had long worked in Europe, organizing an elite network specifically designed for "future terror operations" against the United States. Bodansky alleges that Zawahiri established his operational headquarters in Geneva Switzerland in early 1994. In addition to this, Zawahiri mobilized Islamist Bosnian forces in the aftermath of the Yugoslav breakup. His command center for the Balkans was located in Sofia, Bulgaria. It is hard to believe this was done without the full knowledge and consent of the Moscow-directed and trained Bulgarian secret police.
It is also hard to believe that the KGB/FSB later had Zawahiri in their custody for six months without knowing who he was (as alleged by Wall Street Journal writers Higgins and Cullison). An inconsistency in the story of Zawahiri's Russian adventure also appears in the fact that he did not simply go to "independent" Chechnya, but was arrested after crossing over into Russian-held Dagestan. In addition, Higgins and Cullison tell us that Zawahiri arrived in Russia after visiting China where he had money dealings with a mainland Chinese bank in Guangdong province. One ought to ask what kind of Islamist sets up a command center in Bulgaria, does banking in China and pays extended visits to Russia?
Radical Islam was long ago infiltrated by Moscow's agents -- as evidenced by East German and Cuban support for the Saudi Islamists who attacked the Grand Mosque in 1979, as well as the KGB's clandestine role in provoking the Iranian hostage crisis during the Carter administration (see Bodansky's Bin Laden: The Man Who Declared War on America, p. 9).

This whole business is just to lay the ground for a false flag terrorist attact - possible escalating to world war.
But since there are so many al quaeda supporters in Europe, it would be a but silly to nuke it imo.
Also why despoil the land for yourself and your progeny?
I would guess however a significant attack somewhere.
It's so obvious. TPTB don't even care about being believable anymore.
Which means buckle down your seatbelts.

You know this could all just be a bluff. I guess its wise to be vigilant, but to fear something that is only a possibility according to the source is stupid. You are just playing into their hands. Besides if a nuke did go off, ground zero is probably the best place to be.
(S//NF) Detainee has knowledge of al-Qaida possibly possessing a nuclear bomb. Al-Qaida associate Sharif al-Masri stated in June or July 2004, upon encountering difficulties in moving the nuclear bomb, detainee commented if al-Qaida was able to move the bomb, al-Qaida would find operatives to use it. However, detainee told Sharif al-Masri that al-Qaida currently had no operatives in the US. The operatives would be Europeans of Arab or Asian descent. The device was reportedly located in Europe.40 Sharif al-Masri reported detainee would know about the bomb and its exact location.41 Sharif al-Masri believes if UBL were to be captured or killed, the bomb would be detonated in the US, detainee would be one of those able to give the order.
