    I work in London but fortunately south of the attacks. They took place in the morning rush hour.

    Seems like a large co-ordinated terrorist attack over 6 main areas of the capital.

    Tube trains and buses have been hit and they are now suspended.

    Lots of casualities so far, over 100 and some fatalities.

    Coincides with G8 summit and winning of the Olympic bid.

    Bloody Buggers!! If the powers that be keep insisting on having Summits that accomplish little why don't they lease an Aircraft Carrier and hold them in the Mid Atlantic. It seems the only people that suffer in these attacks are the Common Folk!

    Distressed, big ed

    This said; don't let this stop us from spreading the message of peace!

    Please be sensible, and don't allow 'them' for us to continue the circle of hate.

    NO RETREAT, NO SURRENDER.​

    BUT MAKE LOVE NOT WAR.​

    Fill your heart with constructive thoughts instead of destructive ones.


    "Come not in terrors, as the King of kings,

    But kind and good, with healing in Thy wings,
    Tears for all woes, a heart for every plea—
    Come, Friend of sinners, and thus bide with me."

    You've resurrected before, and I know you will again - stronger than before.

    Have faith.

    United we stand

    Probably both as they can virtually guarantee maximum publicity with London being in the news of most other countries.

    But it must have taken a lot of planning and therefore the G8 summit was probably the key.

    I just heard it on the news and was really shocked. :'(
    When will this horror stop?
    Simply unbelievable. :mad:

    Our prayers go out to all the people who lost someone, those
    who got hurt and those still not found by this act of inhumanity. :'(

    Same here. I first noticed something was up when I got to the bus stop at Waterloo and there were more people there than usual. I got into the office (which is not far from Scotland Yard) and found out what was going on.

    I didn't feel like doing much work after that.

    Bizarrely, the journey home at about 3.30 from Waterloo was delay free. o_O

    All very nice thoughts Slammer my Friend only if it is aimed at people with ethics and feelings, but sadly that is no longer the case.....'Turning the other cheek' won't cut it....atrocities like this, fired by misguided religious fanatical beliefs demand swift and violent retribution........if we can't hit the perpetrators then hit the people who furnish them with the wherewithall to carry out their insidious deeds....no fear, no favour....these people need to be shown that what they get upto isn't a good idea....until the 'Nettle' is grasped and ripped out of this Planet we are all destined to live in fear........

    My only other comment is to express my disgust at the hard, unfeeling attitude of the media....with regard to fighting to interview badly injured victims with terrible burns etc., asking questions of people who are so deep in shock from their Injuries and the carnage that they have witnessed that they don't really know where they are......Shame on everyone of them....not one was offering help, only seeking the chance to get the best picture or get an interview with the worst injured......Words cannot fully describe my feelings....Damn them all....


    Cochise,

    My sentiments exactly as well. I saw that. One look at the TV and I havent looked since then.

    My best wishes lie with the victims and their families. May god bring his fury upon the cowards who caused this tragic event.

    This is truly a very sad circumstance for not just London, but all of us....no wonder I am in such a bad mood today. God bless the good people of England and Great Britian. This is not just another black day for all of us, but a black eye and reminder for mankind that we have such evil, hate-filled murderors amongst us and that their terrorist activities must de dealt with accordingly.

    The following was spoken 65 years ago during the time of another crisis in Britain.

    I believe the words may still convey sentiments that a lot of our friends in the UK have:

    I expect that the Battle of Britain is about to begin. Upon this battle depends the survival of Christian civilization. Upon it depends our own British life, and the long continuity of our institutions and our Empire. The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us.

    ...If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be free and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands. But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science.

    Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, 'This was their finest hour.'


    --Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill - June 18th 1940
