Explosion in London Tube Station, and North Korea fires another missile

Postby Boycs » Fri Sep 15, 2017 8:44 am

It's not a great day to read the news in the UK.

The explosion looks minor, possibly a dud? Could still be a failed terror attack of course. Witnesses report a bag blowing up but only minor injuries.

As for North Korea, no doubt this latest launch will result in "strong condemnation". The kind of condemnation that successfully stopped Ishant Sharma being select-oh, wait.... no it didn't.

I think there will be strong condemnation, as usual, for both cases, but the people behind these cases would carry on, regardless.

Trump has tweeted "an attack by another loser terrorist". Damn right. He can be refreshing for those tired of empty management talk from politicians too nervous about not offending anyone to ever actually convey a message.

Apparently it's about 20 injured, some from the panicky stampede afterwards. Looks a pretty poor quality home made IED from another self-radicalised bloke using instructions he downloaded from the internet.

There are so many people at risk of being twisted into these acts by accessing the wrong information or being preyed upon by the wrong people.

man. britain sure is shaken & stirred. my heart goes out to the innocent victims.

read this on whatsapp:
if you walk into a crowded starbucks but hate to wait in line for a long time, just shout "allah ho akbar" loudly. in a minute all would be gone, hope the employees stay to serve you coffee.

sadly, i believe it's true. blame the last 2 generations of politicians for this mess.

There was a time in Britain where that joke would have worked using a bloke walking into a cafe speaking with an Irish accent.

BBC now states that the device appears to have failed otherwise it would have killed "everyone in the carriage".

Obviously mostly speculation but it did seem to be a dud given that no one was killed. I doubt anyone intentionally builds these things weak.

it's small to avoid detection & suspicion. i am sure if any person with a long beard & brown skin would be stopped even if he is carrying a backpack to open and show while entering the tube system. (or not?)

i went to six flags and we all are asked to open and show stuff inside backpacks before entering. no exceptions even for kids.

As per the wise london mayor, "Terror attacks are part and parcel of living in a big city” ~ @SadiqKhan. this must the parcel he is talking about.

I cannot believe that London people are allowing themselves to become like Kashmiri pandits.

I wonder how NK would react if SK should announce it is developing nuclear weapons of its own as a deterrent....
