I'm watching CNN - 6 explosions in London's subway system in the past few hours. Devastation at a most opportune time for a terrorist cell. G8 up north, Olympic announcement yesterday. The world is riveted once again. As I try and shake off the nausea I am feeling, and it feels alot like 9/11, I try to remember that this is the country that survived the Blitz and IRA attacks over 3 decades. They are better equipped psychologically and physically to deal with this than we Americans were in 2001. Still, how six pretty much simultaneous attacks occurred during a time when security should have been tightest is disturbing. Another moment in history where the British fortitude and efficiency will shine through, but I fear my 10 year old will know this same horror in her adult life and I pray I am wrong. LONDON, July 7 (AFP): At least six blasts rocked the London subway and tore open a packed double-decker bus during the morning rush hour Thursday, police said, killing at least two people and injuring nine, prompting officials to shut down the entire underground transport network. The near simultaneous explosions came a day after London was awarded the 2012 Olympics and as the G-8 summit was getting underway in Scotland. Initial reports blamed a power surge, but officials were not ruling out an intentional attack. One witness, Darren Hall, said some passengers emerging from an evacuated subway station had soot and blood on their faces. He told BBC TV that he was evacuated along with others near the major King's Cross station and only afterward heard a blast. A witness at the Russell Square blast said the entire top deck of that bus was destroyed. "I was on the bus in front and heard an incredible bang, I turned round and half the double decker bus was in the air," Belinda Seabrook told Press Association, the British news agency. She said the bus was packed with people.
