Hands across the ocean...|
I've been chewing my nails, worrying (about Pooh especially, since we've met). :(
Don't worry... the poohster and freakspawn have posted, and freakspawn says honeyfitz is okay, at least.
Having gotten over the shock a bit, though, I have to wonder... is this Al-Quaeda, or somebody else? It doesn't seem like the attacks on the US, where they hit symbols of power. They didn't even hit the big subway stations (I think) - they hit a couple of specific lines. It seems more like the kinds of bombings they have in Iran, or Northern Ireland - smaller stuff. You know what I mean?
Well, D.C. is acting like it's Al-Quaeda, because there are now agents with submachine guns on all the Metro platforms. If it's not Al-Quaeda, it may well be a faction that's not too happy with what's going on in Iraq, and blame the UK as much as the US. :(
Yes, and I read an article that reminded me that what they did in Madrid was similar to this (I'd forgotten). And it's possible that heightened security around the big, obvious targets has forced them to hit the less heavily guarded targets.
Sad, and stupid, and wrong.
lj has been one big hug today .. thank heavens for it.
thankfully not in the city myself.
VERY thankful. But, because of where you work, I imagine things are pretty crazy! Thanks for posting earlier, so we all knew you were okay.
yup Surrey are backing up the Met Police with lots of special duties now.
Thankfully, yes. *GLOMPS* the Poohwise.
Can I join in? *G* *GLOMPS you both!*
