we're talking about airport security. I believe Gitmo needs to be investigated as much as anyone else, I don't see where I indicated otherwise. I also dislike the Patriot Act, and I don't see where I said I agreed with it. so I guess we're in agreement there.

Has Bono made any statement about this yet? Will they cancel or delay the G-8 summit?
I don't see what Bono has to do with this, and personally I think it'd be in poor taste for him to come out and make a public statement on it. He's not exactly a world leader or anything...

They won't cancel the G8 (although it may help them get away with a lousy aid package to Africa)

I guess a certain Spoiled Rotten Billionaire Bastard (who doesn't give adamn aobut the poor Muslims he says eh cares aobut) can't stand the fact that London got the Games. Screw him.
what? are you suggesting Bush bombed London because he was jealous that London got the games?

Oops. The Bastard in question was Bin Laden. Thought I;d clear this up.!!!

And Bono has nothing to do with this. I wasn't suggesting that. I am just interested as he is in Scotland at the moment.

First up - I though the bastard we were talking about was Chirac

I might be misunderstanding the context in which you're using Bin Laden's name (and if I am, please correct me), but he hasn't claimed responsibility for it, not have his branch of Al Qaeda.
An unknown group are the ones who are bragging about today's explosions. Even that is unconfirmed yet though.

While we don't have confirmation regarding the perpetrators of today's events, I believe we do have- yes, I'm just getting this in- we've officially confirmed Bin Laden is a real bastard.

. May you hear from your friend soon.

Watched a bit of the coverage of this on CNN earlier this evening...totally surreal. And heartbreaking.

This has been a pretty depressing week news-wise as it was, actually, and now this on top of everything else...yeesh.

I hope so too...I know there's a hotline you can call as far as Americans in London. I'm pretty sure there have been no American deaths (I think we'd have heard about it on the news), but not sure about the hundreds of injured.

im sure she's fine, hope so

I have no idea whether or not you're being sarcastic towards what I said. I'm too tired to notice or care but the words Bin Laden and Bastard together in the same sentence sounds right to me. I wasn't disputing that in the first place

Discotheque, I hope you hear from your friend soon. I'll be hoping that she's safe tonight

Two Tennessee sisters vacationing in London were injured in the blasts.

No - it's me that should be in the box.
I'm sorry... I didn't mean to sound short. I'm just overtired... it's no excuse though.

fuck the subway bombers

we don't need no fucking violence


"How long... how long must we sing this song..."
Too true. I can't believe that any reasonable human being could be moronic enough to attack innocent and peaceful people. There will, unfortunately, always be dogshit scum around, who will use this as an excuse to indulge in some mindless violence. THANK GOD/ALLAH/BUDDHA/JEHOVAH/ISIS/WHOEVER THAT THESE IMBECILES ARE in the minority. I's like to think the rest if us have a lot more common sense, tolerance, and intelligence.
