26. Lunch Hour Bus Blasts at London Subways

LONDON - Another blast attack happened again at lunch hour. Police in London have arrested two men in connection with four attacks on three subway trains and a double-decker bus on Thursday, a scene hauntingly similar to deadly explosions set off by four suicide bombers exactly two weeks before. It was an inescapable message that life in London now means living with the threat of terror.

Fortunately, the explosive devices were either faulty or too small to cause bloodshed, and the only reported injury turned out to be an asthma attack. But the blasts still rattled the city as London citizens are still edgy after the July 7 explosions, which killed 52 people and four suicide bombers.

Authorities said it was too early to determine whether the attacks were carried out by the same organization as the July 7 blasts — or whether they were linked to al-Qaida.

But NBC News reported that British authorities told their U.S. counterparts that backpacks and explosives used Thursday were identical to those in the July 7 attacks. And the British Broadcasting Corp. reported "speculation" that the devices were so similar they may even have been part of the same batch. (*read more of the blasts )


I wonder what were racing through the minds of these bombers, which lead them to cause harm to the public. This is just insane. Hatred among religions and jealous of other nations' wealth and growth or any other absurd ideas do not justify killing those innocent people. What good would it bring by these deaths and those damages done? More money will need to be poured in to clear up the mess and for the reconstruction work. And it definitely wouldn't gain anymore sympathy from anyone at all. The act is just plain absurd, it will not and never will justify no matter how many good deeds they have done. They should just be sent to Hell and let the devils do the justice to all mankind.
