GLA Attacked!

Glasgow Airport (GLA) was attacked in the afternoon (3:15 pm) on 30 Jun 2007 by a SUV crashing through the front glass door and blazing. Had the bollard not gotten in the way of the driver, the damage would have been more extensive as the car would have been able to drive further in and create even more serious damage. As far as I have read, there has been no innocent fatalities. Thank God. The driver and the passenger(s) probably suffered severe burns but there is no sympathies there from me there.

All these just mere days after new British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, was sworn in. I suspect that all the attacks including the discovery and defusing of two car bombs in London filled with petrol and nails had something to do with the new PM. Perhaps Glasgow was targeted because Gordon Brown himself is a Scot?

As I read the news reports (Click Here), I ask myself who these attackers are i.e. what race and most of the reports have already anticipated this question and indicated them to be South Asian, a term which the British use to describe people from the Pakistan, Afghanistan region which indirectly mean the Islamic Fanatics.

The way I see it, no religion or right of mind will condone the taking of innocent lives. All these kill-all-infidels bullshit is just plain brain-washing of evil instigators. They are not Muslims and they must be denounced. They are an evil cult blaspheming the name of the Holy Prophet. I'd bet these instigators would cowered in fear if they were asked to be the martyrs themselves. Instead all they do is to conveniently point finger at other people to do their dirty work for them.

Just earlier, Heathrow and New York JFK were on high alert after discovery suspicious packages. No reports thereafter were available and so I think they were just false positive.

Now that the airports are back on high alert and security will clench up tight again, it is bad news for me as I am heading up to the US later in the month.

Fucking bastards.

Hey, happy belated birthday - was in the States till late Friday evening. Did you get my text message? Thank God we got through Heathrow ok. Saturday on our way up to visit my inlaws, there was a diversion on the motorway - we were told there was an 'accident'. Turned out that they were arresting two of the 5 people they've arrested so far in connection to this bombing!! how exciting!

Pam: Thanks for the birthday greet and no I did not receive any text message.

I hope there isn't any knee jerk reaction from the locals to take "revenge" against South Asians?
