First of all, happy first of July.
There has been a string of suspected terrorist attacks in the United Kingdom, the first of which was allegedly stopped before it occured in London (police found explosives, etc., in two cars). Just a bit after the London discovery a Jeep full of gas cylenders rammed into the terminal of an airport in Glasgow, Scotland. Inital reports of the Glasgow car ramming made it sound like the car was already on fire before it hit the airport. Now that appears not to be true. It is unknown whether these events are related or whether they are part of a wider network of attempted and planned terror attacks by an al-Qaeda cell or sub-group. There are possible additional plots too:
I'l still on vacation of course, but had a bit of downtime and felt the urge to hop on the net since I can (darn you wireless internet access!). I couldn't resist blogging at least a bit. Anyway, more soon.
