The ramblings of a former Australian SaND TSC* Principal Field Technologist


My heart and thoughts are with those in London.

I am relieved that my relatives were out of the city today, but that’s obviously not the case for many.

I have to agree with the sentiments of Dubya’s speech writers in condeming this as an act of cowardice.

In the local papers (in Sydney) this morning I read the message from those claiming responsibility.

“The heroic mujahedeen carried out a blessed attack in London, and now Britain is burning with fear and terror, from north to south, east to west.”

“We warned the British Government and the British people repeatedly,” the group said. “We have carried out our promise and carried out a military attack in Britain after great efforts by the heroic mujahedeen over a long period to ensure its success.

There was nothing “blessed”, “heroic”, or even “military” about this cowardly act.

It was also good to see just how quickly the emergency services swung into an impressive coordinated response.
