....this is unreal...????
if prestwick no great loss
I was there earlier picking up a friend.
An eye witness on BBC 24 just said that he tackled one of the asian men, who was on fire, to the ground, after he tried to get into the boot of the car...FUCK!
what an incredibly brave thing to do.
Doesn't look like any of the public was hurt though.
This is insane
I love it when terrorists fuck up, get caught n live.
They in for a world of hurt from now on, I think terrorists are the only people that do DESERVE to be publically shamed, instead of imprisoned they should let them back out into the public, passport free. Then they'd get led piped n shit (mainly by me) n it should be like not a crime to do so.
that will definitely prove that you're better than them won't it. Meeting violence with more violence, tried and tested human strategy!
I had a thought of Agent Provocateur eg, PNP justifiying a 'race war' but that seems too crude.
duh! and I mean London
canisters outside the car.
l o l
some terrorists are really, really, really stupid.
Surely it can't be that difficult to indiscriminately kill loads of people.
Anyone remember that thing on time trumpet where they pretended terrorists flew the twin towers into planes?
"Hey, this'll show them, we'll break the automatic doors at an airport... with a car!"
"Lets take this one step further... lets set fire to ourselves!"
"FUCK YEAH! FIRE'S COOL!"
Im flying out from prestwick tomorrow. I hope I dont get terroristed.
Gordon Brown takes over as Prime Minister, having been closely linked with Blair's government. Within days, we have attacks on London, where government operates and Scotland, where Brown is from.
The Asian guys brought bottles of petrol with them, to pour on the car to make it go on fire quicker!
some people really need to be put down.
So hang on, is the car still on fire, where are the passengers now, was the building damaged? There seems to be a distinct lack of detail in that piece.
How many more will there be? I don't think the police had any warning of this one.
it sounds like amatuer terrorism
was vapour, the police said. This sounds like actual smoke from it being on fire.
although it's interesting that Whitehall is still calling it a local incident - it could be a spur of the moment copycat attempt without having a detonator to hand, as on what we have so far they appear to have been relying on the jeep blowing up, except nothing blew up when it was on fire. Oh, I dunno.
I don't see Brown coming into power as that offensive to them... the aniversary of the bombings would see attacks on that day, and surely they're not stupid enough to attack on a day that will have such security... Is this all to do with Rushdie?!
do you want a 3,000 word essay
I prefer the summary my friend just gave me. It goes as follows;
"Extremist muslims are dogmatic violent neanderthals who don't deserve the life their precious allah gave them"
Not very PC, but how long can the moral majority go on before they get very, very pissed off at all of this.
I feel really bad for the normal Muslim who has to sit there whilst people go around performing atrocities in the name of their god, and trying to justify them on religions grounds.
should speak up once in a while. They never condemn terrorism, and as such become passively complicit with it.
They all think and act exactly the same.
and it's just a bunch off pissed off smokers
this may be the only time when there is fire WITHOUT smoke.
That there is a difference between extremist terrorists and the normal common -or-garden muslim.
But you never get militant christian suicide bombers attacking airports, do you?
Their extremists just love an overreaction.
what do muslims have to be pissed off about?
go on, relativise THAT to christian extremism, I dares ya. If you say 'the crusades' you automatically lose.
...more than 4000 charged with homosexual acts. More than 4000 people have been executed, obv.
what a prick
I'm a prick because I don't like it when Muslims go around killing and maiming random people unrelated to the issues that their extremist religious beliefs have problems with.
I guess that makes most of the country a prick too.
I'm on about the extremist cunts. Not the normal muslim. Terrorists are bad, bad muslims, but that doesn't detract from the fact that they're using their religion as a motivation for all of their attacks.
Brown has been Chancellor during this "war on terrorism". That's a pretty influential position, and the Muslims probably see him as not much better than Tony.
really can't see that these are specifically due to Brown 'coming into power', or that Glasgow was targeted specifically because he's Scottish.
it's just speculation.
Well, they fucking kill themselves dont they so that's pretty much a null point. At least it's a ethos.
If it comes out that these are Hindu extremists I'll run around Brixton naked shouting obscenities at gang members.
they even missed the fucking doors...hit an advertising board to the side of the entrance and "got stuck".
I'm fucking terrified of flying as it is and given I"m gonna be flying for the first time in 4 years in 3 weeks time, this isn't helping my obscene levels of fear. Fucking inconsiderate terrorists.
Scared? You bet. And that's adding to my incredible level of vitriol about this whole thing.
know what you mean...I'm gonna be flying 8 times within one month. After four years of studiously avoiding travelling anywhere by plane. That's what having a girlfriend who lives in America does to you. Fuck.
but I'm terrified of flying as it is and that fear tends to affect other worries exponentially. And it goes without saying that there always has to be a first time...
if i end up dying in a terrorist bomb attack in the middle of heathrow airport i will never ever forgive them.
i know i it's all blown out of proportion and all, but there's always that worry present. the world's crazy enough at the moment as it is.
there is a programme 'When Terrorism Goes Wrong'.
"These guys thought they would drive a burning car into an airport. There'll be no airports where they're headed - jail!"
the English bloke who revoices them for Bravo with the same script who tries to copy the intonation but you can tell wants to piss himself laughing at it.
That would be ace!
took a wrong turn on way to Pollokshields
On the other hand, it really is about time elements of the left stopped pandering to jihadists. I was reading in Private Eye earlier that in a Channel 4 poll 25% of muslims believed the London bombers were innocent although this is in no way representative of the feelings of Britains muslim population, I doubt if 25% of them are that stupid
Anyways, I'm about to strap on my home made bomb, go to my local mosque and when it fails to detonate say it was never meant to, it was a protest against the war
from the J.Kyle show.
He'd sort them out. The man's a genius.
Probably quite busy.
The news people said there were quite a lot of people there.
Enough people to bomb, obviously.
.......That probably won't be the headline in any tabloids tomorrow, but, it should be.
they found a suspect device on his person, and the hospital was evacuated
I was a little surprised by that.
You would have thought that an injured suspected suicide bomber would be stripped and searched prior to being taken to hospital.
"Device found at hospital where attack suspect taken". I know Al-Qaeda do a lot of planning, but I doubt they'd go to that much detail.
Surely the police would have found anything really suspicious? Why would you attach a 'device' to yourself if you're planning a suicide attack in a car full of gas and petrol? I dunno.
I dunno, they evacuated the hospital so it was obviously a credible threat. Then again, it does raise the question as to why the device wasn't detonated when members of the public wrestled these guys to the ground. Pretty fucking lucky if that's the case and it was a viable device - can't see too many people attempting to tackle a terrorist in the future if that does emerge.
good name for an emo band
Though I guess if you're gonna take on a terrorist then taking on one who's unable to drive a car through a gigantic fuck off pair of doors and then unable to detonate a bomb he'd strapped to himself is a pretty good bet.
The Cat Stevens discography on repeat.
I'm no PC nazi, but come on.
Someone set a firework off in the street next to me in soho a few hours ago.
For a minute I was like... not another fuckin' lame terrorism attempt?
the article identifies them only as asians
but identifying them primarily by race kinda smells and adds fuel the whole knee-jerk "I'm not a racist but... bloody muslims blowing things up" tendency on the part of some.
Not necessarily here... I've just been pissed off today by some of the reactions ive observed in various places.. should probably cheer up and go to bed
I see where you're coming from, but I disagree. Identifying people involved in these sorts of incidents by race is no more racist than giving their age is ageist. Its a legitimate piece of information. It all gets racist when people start going 'bloody asians always blowing people up' etc.
I just noticed in your post. MUSLIM ISN'T A RACE. Ahem.
not saying they should pussyfoot around mentioning it. Just comes across rather pejorative and unhelpful when people use their race consitently as the sole identifier when referring to them.
that way, but I suspec the constant reference to them as asian males is more a symptom of information-thirsty rolling new s culture than creeping racism at the BBC. In fact, the BBC is the very last news organisation I'd accuse of having a secret racist agenda.
certainly does not have a racist agenda, it's fervent desire to be PC could well fuel racism.
Does anyone recall the Swindon school attack last summer?
The BBC engaged in some shameful revisionist reporting and selective editing in order to make a particularly nasty attack that was at least partially racial in motive perpetrated by a group of asian men against a white teenager seem like a playground altercation.
The same week they reported an alleged attack on a Sikh boy as a race hate crime by white youths......it later turned out the 'victim' was a liar and no such attack occurred.
The BBC were rather less eager to publicise that twist though.
not accusing the bbc
I get perhaps overly cynical/sad about any perceived shift in language / attitudes caused by attacks like this.
...is very much relevant.
It fucks me off no end when the BBC go out of their way to avoid mentioning race when a negative news story involves certain racial groups. I'm glad they haven't attempted to gloss over the reality of the situation this time.
Obviously these guys could turn out to be Asian Presbyterians, members of a militant pro smoking organisation or a postmodern performance art troupe...but, I somewhat doubt it.
