Tired of bigots, apologists and career building experts
Maybe the phone rang two minutes after it was disconnected from the thing it was set to trigger? Doesn't seem too much of a stretch on my imagination to see how both those statements could be true. The papers also said the guy they arrested on the M6 had called the 'trigger' phone 4 times. I can just see the copper's face when the phone he had in his hand rang 2 minutes after he disconnected it.
I considered that at the time, but considering the length of time the car had been sitting, and the other one had been left long enough to be towed away.
Surely if you are going to trigger with a mobile phone you will be close enough to make sure there is atleast something close enough to damage, as triggering 'on command' allows such an option.
After speaking to the reoprter who wrote that part of the article the phrase "due to go off" was apparently quoted from the security services, with the implication that it was a timer. I pointed this out to the reporter and he didn't see the difference between phone triggered and timer triggered (a tree stump has a higher IQ)
Thinking about it, if they where so poor at choosing the explosive, I wonder how reliable their trigger would have been ?
What was that about understanding what you read? When there's so little actual 'fact' being reported, how can you 'understand' anything from it?
I was referring to the reg article not the 3rd press reports we have been fed with.
The Glasgow incident has been upgraded from burning vehicle (accurate) to car bomb (inaccurate). I have no beef against the members of the security services who do something useful. However the ones talking up the fear level to justify overseas conferences and higher budgets are a different matter
Just because they where completely incompetant, dosn't make any difference to their original intent to commit murder.
As for the Iraq violence, I hold a sever grudge against the US & UK goverments actions.
However it is Iraqui killing Iraqui, these tensions have always been there, but they where too afraid of the previous leadership. Yes the invasion (without any plan for the future) the underlying bigotry to run wild. BUT it is the choice of Iraqui extermists to carry on this pointless waste of life
