does anyone know anything about this?
quite scary - just down the road
Police are attending a suspect vehicle in Old Castle St junction with Whitechapel High street. Cordons have been implemented.
We have been advised to advise staff to keep away from the area .
We will send a further update as we receive more news.
Meh, it's probably nothing.
twitter said so, must be true
shut down Aldate East, reopened Aldage East.
IED found in car, defused
IED found in phone box, not defused
Out of interest, is that what it is or are you just channelling Generation Kill and the like?
have read all of this thread, i'm oscar mike to the music board
only thing i could find.
leave the comma and numbers in the link.
she said: "No, what?"
I assure you, this is NOTHING compared to that. Awful.
Clearly a bomb that has been found in advance and not gone off will be better than 7th July 2005 was.
I was working in Aldgate back then too. It was fairly surreal as most of the office was in and working by the time the bomb went off.
IED is a British Army term, was around long before Gen Kill or even the Iraq War,
I assumed it referred to something more, well, 'improvised' and rushed. As in made from found items that were a result of being in the middle of a conflict and armed struggle, etc.
I actually tried to stop the page submitting that.
In a thread about BOMBS?
Should I be scared? I should, shouldn't I.
Yeah you're right... I didn't word that properly. I basically just wanted to communicate the sentiment that I was working in Aldgate on July 7th 2005 and it was fucking rubbish. No point to be made in comparison...
Damn first day back after Bank Holiday brain rot.
We all heard the bus explode and someone was like, "hey, that sounds like a bus exploding! LOL!" and we all laughed.
SHARING IS CARING
for their investment in tar sands exploration?
"a spokesman for the Met Police said by phone today"
I'm looking forward to the inevitable grounding of all motor vehicles and blanket media coverage by 13:58 today.
The Pakistani Taliban tried to claim the car bomb in New York despite all evidence suggesting otherwise. And that was a FAILED attempt. Ditto for the undercracker bomber in Detroit – Al Qaeda pipe up for that – some unfathomable dickhead blows his own nuts off he’s so incompetent and they produce a video message BRAGGING about it. Take away the spectre of what could have happened, and what you have is not much more than an America’s Funniest Home Video: friendless loser makes himself into a eunuch, sings like a canary to Feds afterwards. These guys, by and large, are incompetent idiots. And doing something in the name of religion is even more pathetic than killing for money.
Anyway, I just wanted to claim the failed and possibly non-existent RBS bombing before any of these cabbages check their inboxes. I did it in the name of love.
We know if you went on a terrorist spree it would be all kites with razor sharp twine...
