How many countries do you think are going to pull out of the Olympics? (Not that I care too much about that)
Is there any doubt at all that this was an attack? It seems extremely well planned that first the tube got shut down, *then* the buses were targeted, once they began to take the overflow. This shows much more co-ordination and planning than what you hear about suicide bombers in the news in Iraq and Israel/Palestine.


After much consideration, I find that the view is worth the asphyxiation.

I don't think talking about anything else is helping people still waiting for news of loved ones.

See, Aus just heard about it within the last hour or so.

I just feel so sick, I can't imagine how you guys are feeling.

It just proves that they're everywhere, Aus will probably be next. frown

I'm just so relieved to hear that so many people here are okay.

Posted:[censored].

Seven blasts timed for London's rush hour traffic...

The news seems to think it's Al-Qaeda, Blair lays the blame at terrorists trying to disrupt the G8.

I am not trying to cause excess worry or panic... but there is still the fear of one being out there (seven blasts/G8)... but the police are searching the underground now.

They attacked the transport because that's where the most amount of people would be at that time of the morning... causing maximum damage and disruption.

All my thoughts are with the families of those killed (two confirmed, at this stage) and those injured.

And of course, our missing Hoppers.

Who do we have left to trace?

Take care all

Posted:The BBC are saying that the police have reported to them 6 blasts on the underground and one on a bus in Taverstock square. It appears that the bus blast had been reported as occuring in 3 of the roads going into the square hence people believing there were 3 blasts not one.

I don't know what else to say. In many ways I am glad I know longer work there, but I'm desperate to make sure the people I know are safe and well.
