Let's Look at the facts.
First, let us all agree that it is much too early to know who is responsible for the attacks in London. Second, let us also agree that to disallow evidence and jump to ridiculous conclusions is not going to help either.
Therefore, why don't we look at several facts that we do know:
1) Scotland Yard reports four blasts caused by approx 10lbs of high explosive
2) the blasts occurred by means of self-timers and went off within 45mins of each other
3) serious loss of life, injury and damage occurred
4) Benj. Netanyahu remained in his hotel, although he had been scheduled to speack at time of the blasts
Without belabouring the obvious, can we at least demand to know how so many kilos of high-explosive material is floating around in the tube? These are not firecrackers and travel alarm clocks here. Something stinks about the apparent ease with which both the explosives were prepared and how they appeared on the underground and bus. Theory (a) has it that a terrorist cell was able to do this, theory (b) has it that trained secret agents carried this out. I am not going to tell you which one I think is more likely. Anyway, we need Scotland Yard forensics to be honest and TELL US WHAT the stuff was and WHERE it was made! Believe me, they will know exactly what molecules they found!
Although it is a sad prospect, we should be realistic about who might have done this terrible act. Theory (a) has it that terrorists who "hate our way of life" would strike innocent commuters, theory (b) has it that black operatives, working to counteract the growing opposition to UK presence in Iraq, or working to stymie G8 action on global warming, or seeking to stifle opposition to national ID cards and other security measures have willingly slain our citizens. Well, again, you don't need to know my opinion on this. But be open-minded. Ask yourself: just because the Queen says it and it is repeated ad nauseum on television, does it become true?
Finally, there has been a lot of talk and redaction about who "knew" what and who warned whom immediately before the attacks. Let's stick to the fact: Netanyahu stayed in his hotel room. Imagine that. The teeming millions of London, minding their own business are blown to bits, while a certain individual cancels his scheduled address to hundreds of attendees and stays very well put. I'm not saying that anyone is to blame here, but do you get a creepy feeling the way I do? A sort of chill up and down your spine that leaves you thinking:
how the hell is it the "leaders" always survive to call for war? to take away our civil liberties? to rob us blind for weapons and armed occupations? to stamp us down and call us unpatriotic when we are not silently going along with their bankrupt policies?
