Just heard it on the news, broadstreet's been evacuated and there's been a controlled explosion on a suspect bag.

I heard that too.

I don't know about you,I also have heard that they are preparing some other attacks on countries who support Bush.

Is that true? Do you believe it is possible?

Sounds like a prank. The "bombers" gave a warning beforehand, so it sounds like they're trying to scare people rather than injure them. That ain't exactly the militant Islamic M.O.

Bombings usually occur after months of careful planning, and with the heightened security, terrorist groups would likely lay low for a bit, not wanting to risk having their killings go awry.

^ The bombings come in twos - I was reading this in the Times just now; apparently they tried to blow up another train a couple of months after the original one in Spain but it failed. I think there was something about it happening in the US too, but anyway, tis still far too soon for them to be going after Birmingham.


why Birmingham?

Tis Britain's second largest city (and 30 mins away fom me!)

It has to be a fake scare. I went to Birmingham on the day of the London bombings - was far, far emptier than usual. But I doubt they're going to bomb Birmingham - as I said in another thread, London's far more of a symbol. Plus, at the moment, the story is "Terrorists bomb capital of England". If they were to bomb Birmingham too, it'd be "Terrorists bomb capital of England [and second largest too]." Slightly diluted.

Around where i am (Bradford) we all thought it was safe (we have nearenough all races here) as we didnt think they would bomb their own, but now it is really becomeing unstable, if they have done Birmingham (which i thought was the same idea as Bradford) then who knows where they will go for next!
A few people i know, think that London was down to some French Rebels, as not getting the olympics!
I dont think they will ever catch the ring leaders of all this, as they will be in hiding all the time, and the bombers would rather die then give in! If they get caught, or close to being caught they will just kill them selves. If were not careful, we will be slaves to them, as the whole world will cower under their power and what they can do!

Just my ideas of it all, and my god it is scary!

WTF are you blabbering about? Of course people took it seriously at first.

I also agree that we won't see another attack for some time...still, better safe than sorry.

Imagine what would happen if there was another serious attack and they hadn't been on high alert. People would go crazy, saying "look what just happened in London and you didn't even go on high alert and now this happened". They can't risk that kind of criticism if nothing else.

You're right, that is unnecessary. Who'd bother to attack France?

All right then. If you don't think it's a valid point then answer the question.

Paint_It_Black
07-10-2005, 09:14 AM
And why would they attack France?

Paint_It_Black
07-10-2005, 09:18 AM
Just admit it. France isn't interesting enough for anyone to hate them. The best they can manage is a mild dislike from the British. France hasn't been important to the world since the Germans left.

France is a potential threat no matter what you think.

Culturally we're far above them.

Maria

Explain that to me. How are you defining culture? I can't think of any French bands. I bet you can think of many British ones. I can't think of any French novelists. I bet you can think of many British ones. I can't think of any French films...see my point? Oh, you can argue that your culture is better if you like, but I can't debate it. Because no one outside of France knows about it. There's a reason why you all learn English, but few of us learn French. And it's not totally because we're lazy and arrogant.

Hackneyed clichés. Why do so many Britons come to France to work & rest? Hmm?

Maria

To feel superiour to everyone around them? Might as well ask why so many Canadians live in the US.

If it were not for the US you'd be grovelling to us, you poodles!

Maria

You're going to need to actually supply an argument for that one. If it wasn't for us you'd be speaking German, and it wouldn't really bother us, because you'd still learn English too.


The reason you're not interested in other culture is because you already have enough difficulty comint to terms with your 'own'!

We're interested in other culture. Just not yours. If yours is so great why are you here? Last time I checked it wasn't Le Offspring.

You moron... don't you read the papers? Oh you make me sick with disgust... didn't know you Brits were so snotty.

Maria

No, actually I don't read newspapers. I read all my news on the internet. It's easier to find the articles that interest me.

How could you not know we are snotty? We're famous for it. Just like you smell and don't shave. Bloody common knowledge that.
