“Explosives-Packed Car Defused in London” by David Stringer.
British authorities defused a bomb-laden car that was seen as suspicious. The target was London’s night entertainment district. There were nails in the car as well so as to maximize damage. (The inclusion of such elements — nails and ball bearings — suggests to me that the people, more often than not Islamist terrorists, are inhuman.) The people behind this were almost undoubtedly Islamist terrorists. What we need to see is whether any of them were home-grown.
Some believe this is a message to Britain’s new prime minister, Gordon Brown. He became prime minister day two days ago. The message, needless to say, is that Britain needs to withdraw from Iraq. If Gordon Brown gives in, as did Rodríguez Zapatero of Spain, this could be a serious blow to The West, and a major victory not only for Islamist terrorists but for all terrorists.
Let us see what happens.
