    They are too convenient a scapegoat.

    Now, I'm fretting because my cousin lives in Central London with her mother.
    Well, no one can say it's the Muslim terrorists...

    May be French terrorists who are angry that Paris did not get the hosting rights, may be others etcetcetc....

    they are just plain terrorists. religion has no part in it. these bas****s are using religion as a fig leaf to justify their cause.

    there's no sane religion in the world dat preaches killing and violence to obtain their goals.

    during the ioc meeting, police armed with gas masks were seen patrolling in pairs at city hall station(not inside the train stn). many, many pairs were seen in raffles city conventions centre.

    london is facing a transportation standstill now. how people leave london in the evening is anyone's guess. i suppose a staggered release of people would help.
