    Wasn't able to access BBC or Reuters due to busy servers. If this is not a terrorist attack I may be a chimp...

    Heard it on the news this morning. At least we can count on England not to cave like the Spaniards did.

    The European network for Al-Queida claimed responsibility.

    Checking the news networks for more.

    Oh man. What about ris? Doesn't he (or didn't he) work in London?

    As of now, 2 fatalities and over 100 wounded. They're saying 6 to 7 explosions in the tube, one or more bus bombs.

    BBC has some good information, I was able to get on the site after a few minutes.

    Between the G8 & the 2012 games, the Islamo-fascists have decided to show their disapproval. Perhaps, if the anti-war crowd gets their way, they'll talk the murderers into a letter writing campaign instead.

    Because it happened to his country this time. ;)

    Re the number of deaths, I just heard 40-45 on the live AP feed. I don't know how accurate that is but it supposedly comes from London law enforcement "officials."

    'Al-Qaeda' group linked to London blasts

    BERLIN (AP) — A group calling itself "Secret Organization — al-Qaeda in Europe" has posted a claim of responsibility for the series of blasts in London, a German magazine reported Thursday.
    Der Spiegel magazine reported that the group posted its message on a Web site popular with Islamic militants, which it did not name. It said the group claimed the explosions were in retaliation for Britain's involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    "Rejoice, Islamic nation. Rejoice, Arab world. The time has come for vengeance against the Zionist crusader government of Britain in response to the massacres Britain committed in Iraq and Afghanistan," read the statement, a photograph of which was displayed on Der Spiegel's Web site.

    "The heroic mujahedeen carried out a blessed attack in London, and now Britain is burning with fear and terror, from north to south, east to west," it said.

    The statement went on the warn the governments of Denmark and Italy that they would face "the same punishment" if they fail to withdraw their troops from Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Hopefully the UK won't invade Jordan when those responsible are in Afghanistan.
