    It will be interesting, to say the least, in the way the government says it failed and how it failed given the atmosphere present at the scene before the event.

    Send some good vibes towards the injured too, they're gonna need all the help they can get.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I just hope there's no more bombs or terrorit attacks in the US or indeed UK which hosts Mrs Thatchers funeral tomorrow with dignitaries attending from across the globe including former US Presidents and the London Marathon is on this Sunday

    Nah, Anders Breivik used similar tactics by himself without training.

    If this person is caught, I propose we light a stick of dynamite, shove it up their ***, and let the world watch.

    So far I've heard that 3 are dead, 100+ injured (some critically). I've heard that they took some "young" person in for questioning who happens to be here on a some kind of work visa, but that person is not YET a suspect. Also, the library is a big question mark. They keep saying that it was an unrelated incident yet they are treating it as if it is related. Where's the logic in that? Why would you treat something that isn't related as if it is related?

    It's annoying because we STILL don't have any real definitive information yet.

    Be patient. It's early yet. I'd rather authorities do a thorough job than rush to judgement and home in on a false trail and miss the real perps. Sometimes law enforcement does this and the real clues go cold and useless.

    I'm trying to remain patient. It's just annoying when they tell you that the incident was not related, yet say they are treating it as if it is related (about the JFK Library). Is it related or isn't it? It just seems like it's still a big ball of confusion.

    JFK Library was a fire, and was not related.
