Al-qaeda has once-again proven that they are a force to be reckoned with by testing their mettle against tin-cans full of people. Bombs were detonated on the Underground and a bus earlier today in London, with the terrorist network claiming responsibility.
A spokesman for Al-queda put the attacks into perspective for western viewers:
Fighting trained soldiers was starting to get a little ‘old-hat’, you know? We had heard whisperings of the great mechanical dragons and their riches living beneath the Misty City. The stories of sneaking weapons into such a tightly guarded and private sanctuary will live on forever.
Anyway, weblogs seem to be the way that people are getting information. They can usually be trusted:
- Wikipedia entry
- Wikinews entry
- CNN Timeline
- Flickr photo pool
- Google News
- Technorati: london bomb
- Al Jazeera
Bombing mass-transit is absolutely despicable. You see photos roll in from Jerusalem, Tokyo, Baghdad and Madrid and you have to wonder what people are thinking when they do these things. They’re only hurting people like themselves.
