Bombing London on such a joyous day, I was going to blog about the great news of London winning the Olympic bid for 2012, beating the stinky garlic munching hairy arm-pitted frogs of gay paris by 4 votes..
But how can I when my country has just been blown to shit.
It’s pretty sick aswell, coinciding with the start of the G8 summit in Scotland…
According to the latest news, there were 4 blasts, all targeting public transport during rush hour…
Currently known as 2 dead and a LOT injured, maybe more than 300, am not sure as of now..ITN is reporting up to 40 dead..
Blogs responded to the blast quickly as due to congestion the cellular networks were down..
As I’ve been saying blogs are the new media..
Jeff Ooi also has some coverage on this.
Injured people, bloody and covered in soot were seen coming out of the tube stations..
We always said if they hit, they’ll hit the underground…I didn’t except the buses too..
A group calling itself “The Secret Organization of al-Qaida in Europe” posted a claim of responsibility for the blasts, saying they were in retaliation for Britain’s involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Web statement, republished on the site of the German magazine Der Spiegel, could not be immediately confirmed.
The full statement:
In the name of God, the merciful, the compassionate, may peace be upon the cheerful one and undaunted fighter, Prophet Muhammad, God’s peace be upon him.
Nation of Islam and Arab nation: Rejoice for it is time to take revenge against the British Zionist Crusader government in retaliation for the massacres Britain is committing in Iraq and Afghanistan. The heroic mujahideen have carried out a blessed raid in London. Britain is now burning with fear, terror and panic in its northern, southern, eastern, and western quarters.
We have repeatedly warned the British Government and people. We have fulfilled our promise and carried out our blessed military raid in Britain after our mujahideen exerted strenuous efforts over a long period of time to ensure the success of the raid.
We continue to warn the governments of Denmark and Italy and all the Crusader governments that they will be punished in the same way if they do not withdraw their troops from Iraq and Afghanistan. He who warns is excused.
God says: “You who believe: If ye will aid (the cause of) Allah, He will aid you, and plant your feet firmly.”
Makes me feel sick to my stomach.
Good summary from a UK blog HERE.
For all those that SMS’ed me, thanks for caring, yes it feels horrible and my family are all ok, we are near Birmingham, so well out of the way of London.
What more can I say? Apart from..MAN THIS IS FUCKED.
