Although this is still UNCONFIRMED, sources believe that Al Qaeda is behind the attack in London. I really hope that isn’t the case because then Bush will have more ammunition and support for his “war on terrorism”
Call me an idealist but if these so called terrorist are trying to get their point across, why attack innocent people? Those Londoners are regular people just trying to live their lives. IN fact most Europeans are against US occupation in the Middle East, so why attack them? Right now I'm in Geneva and on the tram to the UN today a lot of people had a change of opinon on the US war on terror. This situation just infuriates me because incidents like in London just validates Bush's campaign on terrorism. IF these so called terrorist are acting in the name of "God" by hurting thousands of people, then maybe they should get hunted down like animals and locked away for the rest of their natural lives.
It has been confirmed that AlQ is responsible. I don't have words to express the panick here. My office is in Moorgate, where one of the first explosions occurred. We can see police blocking out the area from our windows. Scary that they are blocking out where you are! I can't believe this has happened. We're lucky that noone in our firm has been injured, but what about the others? There is, of course, no excuse for this behaviuor. But how can you reason with an organisation whose whole value system is completely in contrast with yours? Since they don't value human life, I just don't see what form of punishment could be on inflicted on them, even if the people responsible were caught.
Security is extra tight around the UN office in Geneva right now. I think the WTO is closing for today as well.ImVinny I wasn't trying to sound like an idiot. I understand they are terrorist, but killing innocent people isn't going to further their cause unless they are trying to start chaos. Theortically if these groups are trying to convert the world to Islam, killing folks isn't going to accomplish that goal. These fundamentalist are so contradictory because Islam is supposed to be a peaceful religion. What has happened in London is repuslive. I'm just grateful that the attack didn't occur during rush hour or a lot more people would be dead.
