Car bombs come to London

So here's the thing. Islamic terrorists attacked the United States on September 11th 2001. This eventually led to the US and other western countries to invade Afghanistan and oust the Taliban. Then, for reasons I still am yet to understand, the US invaded Iraq. The British came with us. Now it seems that England has become a prime target by Islamic terrorists mainly because, one, its large Muslim population and two, its close proximity to the Middle East. So, on behalf of the US people, sorry bout that.

Police were last night hunting a suspected al-Qaida-inspired terrorist cell after the discovery of two "Iraqi style" car bombs, which UK officials said were designed to cause mass murder. One was outside a London nightclub, and a second nearby.

Hats off to the British police. Someone deserves a medal. Saved a lot of lives.

Only luck and probable faults in the bombs' construction meant that the first device, inside a metallic green Mercedes, could be disarmed, while the second, in a blue Mercedes 280E, failed to explode.

Okay, so at least we're not dealing with masterminds here. They don't know what they're doing when it comes to bombmaking. I don't know if that's actually a good thing.

Police say both were capable of causing severe casualties and were intended to have been detonated remotely, most likely by a mobile phone.

The mistakes in Iraq are going to haunt us for a long, long time.

Counter-terrorism officials said the first device - made up of 60 litres of petrol, several propane gas cylinders, nails and a detonation mechanism - was similar to those used by al-Qaida in Iraq.

Well at this point anything that blows up is similiar to Iraq.

The second car, containing similar lethal materials, was given a parking ticket at 2.30am before being towed to a car park in Park Lane, central London.

Perfect, so, now, when the guy comes to pay the fine, grab him!
