New Attacks in London

Right now,the situation is still very confused.

At lunch hour in London today, four "minor bombings" occurred in an eerie mimicry of the 7/7 terror attacks. Three incidents occurred in various Tube stations, and a fourth occurred on a double-decker bus.

So far, only one injury has been reported, and the bombers apparently wanted to survive this attack. In one attack, the bomber threw a knapsack into a crowded train car just before the doors closed, then turned and ran up the stairs.

What is not yet clear: was this a prank, a copycat incident, or a genuine Al Qaeda operation that went bad?

Check the BBC News website for the latest.

P.S.: The 7/7 investigation may be moving to American shores. The British are seeking a man tied to an attempt to establish a terrorist training camp in Oregon. (See Orbusmax for more.)

Ok, now that's starting to get scary Tyler... What's with the combo flag? You do realize that we revolted AGAINST the British for our own sovrign independence... and the idea of a Combo Flag seems to against the whole soverign independence thing.

What would call this strange new breed? The Union Stripes? Jack Glory? Stars and Jack? Half-Jack Glory? Half-Jack and some stripes? Or maybe all Jacked up?
