The final cut

Four London Blasts Kill 45, Injure 300

AP - 16 minutes ago

LONDON - Three explosions rocked the London subway and one tore open a packed double-decker bus during the morning rush hour Thursday. The blasts killed at least 45, according to a U.S. law enforcement official, and injured more than 300 in what a shaken Prime Minister Tony Blair called a series of "barbaric" terrorist attacks. The U.S. official spoke on condition of anonymity because British officials have yet to make public the death toll. U.S. authorities learned of the number from their British counterparts, according to the official.

Blair said the "terrorist attacks" were clearly designed to coincide with the opening of the G-8 summit in Gleneagles, Scotland. They also came a day after London won the bid to host the 2012 Olympics. The explosions hit three subway stations and a double-decker bus in rapid succession between 8:30 and 9:30 a.m. Implementing an emergency plan, authorities immediately shut down the subway and bus lines that log 8.4 million passenger trips every weekday. It brought the city's transportation system to a standstill and left many central London streets deserted.

And people wonder why I am so pro-war, As of now this is being claimed by, "The Secret Organization of al-Qaida in Europe". True cowards who believe if they die they will have 60+ virgins or whatever. This is why I say good men of the world unite, or be damned for what we will gain by doing nothing.

As a comment, It now looks like any good planed from this weekends concerts is now gone. Congrats Al-Qaida you may have now made Africa mad, but I doubt it. To the moderate Arabs who condem these groups, when will you do more than condem them and attempt to stop them. As we have so heard they eyes of the world are watching you, well we're watching and we are waiting.
