LONDON - Explosions struck the London Underground and a bus at midday Thursday in a chilling but far less bloody replay of the suicide bombings that killed 56 people two weeks ago.
Only one person was reported injured in the nearly simultaneous lunch-hour blasts, which shocked and disrupted the capital and were hauntingly similar to the July 7 bombings by four attackers.

I know these guys were probably amateur copycats, but Jesus H. Christ, how did amateurs pull this off a couple weeks after the last bombings? Prepare for Chimpy Inc to try and take some more of our civil liberties as the fear mongering begins.
And just as I talk about the fear mongering, I find this at Lefty's:
Apparently, a report is being prepared that will state that Iran offered free passage to up to 10 of the 9/11 hijackers.
So this is the beginning of the 'Iran Gambit'. Brace yourself for the rhetoric. I mean, we got bases on either side of 'em now, why not chase the Ayatollahs in Iran out too. We gotta keep 'Murika safe and Christian, right?
