Puzzling [Jul. 22nd, 2005|09:13 am]
Tony Grist
You punch above your weight in international affairs- as Britain is proud of doing- and you get punched back. There may not be a direct causal link between Mr Blair's Iraq adventure and the London bombs, but there's clearly a connection. Britain has been dropping bombs all over the Islamic world recently and sooner or later someone was bound to want to retaliate.

This latest failed attack is puzzling. I can think of scenarios that might explain it- the bomb-maker was incompetent- he deliberately sabotaged the mission- but they're all a bit wild. Four dud bombs in a batch of four is verging on the surreal.

The good thing is the police now have four half-exploded bombs to submit to forensic examination. They also- pretty soon- are likely to have four live bombers to interrogate.

Or dead ones, which is not so helpful. They seem to have shot someone, though whether he was one of yesterday's bombers back for another attempt or someone acting on his own, only time will tell.

P.S. I hope you don't mind that I've added you to my Friends list. I found you via jackiejj and I like your pictures. I've lived in Wales for many years now, but I'm originally from your part of the world or at least from not far away (Moston in NE Manchester).

Pleased to meet you. I'm adding you back.

The tube shooting just adds to the mystery. I guess we'll eventually find out what it's all about.
