Bombs That Suck?

Equally absent from the official British government narrative report on the London bombings is any reference to a very disturbing eyewitness report from the
Cambridge Evening News from July 2005. Dancer Bruce Lait had just boarded the train at Liverpool Street station on his way to the South Bank for a rehearsal when an explosion occurred:
"We'd been on there for a minute at most and then something happened. It was like a huge electricity surge which knocked us out and burst our eardrums. [...] We were right in the carriage where the bomb was. I was knocked out. I did not know what was going on." He and Crystal (his dance partner) were helped out of the carriage. As they made their way out, a policeman pointed out where the bomb had been. "The policeman said 'mind that hole, that's where the bomb was'. The metal was pushed upwards as if the bomb was underneath the train. They seem to think the bomb was left in a bag, but I don't remember anybody being where the bomb was, or any bag."
If someone would kindly explain to me how a bomb in a rucksack on the floor of a train can cause the floor of the train to be blasted inwards, I would truly appreciate it.

For The Love Of Terror

I have written in the past about the counter-insurgency strategy currently being employed by US and British military intelligence agencies in Iraq, where covert attacks on the civilian population of Iraq are being carried out in order to confuse and demoralise the Iraqi population, and the real insurgency that they support, in an attempt to consolidate US government control over the future of the Iraqi nation. It is my opinion that in the 9/11 attacks, and the Madrid and London train bombings, we are witness to the very similar counter-insurgency tactics, only this time they are being used against the American, British, Spanish and wider European and world civilian population.

There is a very clear link between the American and Israeli war in Iraq, Palestine and soon the wider Middle East, and the need for the population of Europe and America to believe in the reality of the 'war on Islamic terror'. The invasion and ongoing occupation of Iraq by American and British forces is, after all, being pursued under the aegis of the very same 'war on Islamic terror'. It is essential therefore for the populations of America and Western Europe to continue to believe in the 'reality' of ' Islamic terrorism' in order for the US, British and Israeli governments to continue to expand their war of aggression in the Middle East and beyond. Given the absence of any real worldwide Islamic terror threat, it has long been understood by these governments that such a threat must be manufactured. In the 9/11, London, Madrid and other alleged Islamic terror attacks, we have evidence of just such a campaign of manufactured Islamic terrorism, and the glaring holes in the official accounts of how and why those attacks occurred provides more than enough evidence to support this thesis.

Forest Gate - Psychological Terror Op

On June 2nd 2006, 250 heavily armed British police descended on a house in East London where, it was alleged, 'Muslim terrorists' were manufacturing chemical weapons to unleash on innocent Londoners. During the raid, which has become know as the 'Forest Gate Raid', one of two brothers living in the house was shot and both were arrested. At a press conference after their release, the brothers (aged 23 and 20) described their ordeal.
When Kahar heard the front door being smashed down, he assumed it was a burglary and left his bedroom to come down stairs, where, at a distance of 'two or three feet', a policeman opened fire without issuing a warning or identifying himself. "We had eye contact and he shot me straight away," recalled Kahar. The bullet entered his chest and exited through his shoulder, sparing his life by inches. "I was begging him, 'Please, please, I can't breathe,' and he just kicked me in my face. He kept on saying, 'Shut the f*ck up'.... one of the officers slapped me on the face ... I thought that they're going to either shoot me again, or they're going to start shooting my brother." Koyair, the brother, was also sworn at and beaten. Their elderly mother was dragged out in handcuffs. Their sister, Humeya Kalam, told the BBC, "I heard doors being smashed, windows being broken. I woke up, opened my door and saw a person dressed all in black, gun pointing towards me." Meanwhile, the police raided the house next door, where the residents received similar rough treatment.
In what has become standard policy, the police attempted to smear the two victims by claiming first that Kahar had been shot after he had struggled with officers, then that he had actually been shot by his brother during a scuffle, and then that a police officer had 'accidentally' discharged his gun as a result of wearing thick gloves. It was also stated that the brothers had attended militant Islamist demonstrations and that Kahar's wound was superficial. Not surprisingly, all of these were outright lies, and the two brothers were entirely innocent, but even more shocking was the subsequent revelation that the police informant who provided the information that led to the raid, was an "utter incompetent" with an IQ of 69.

Mohammed Abu Bakr Mansha (22) is a friend of the two brothers and had been imprisoned in January for possessing an old address of a decorated British soldier. This was an operation that involved 250 heavily-armed and bio-suited officers in a pre-dawn raid on a London home. Such operations are not sanctioned without meticulous planning, including, in theory, rigorous checking to make sure that the 'target' is a genuine, or likely to be genuine 'terrorist'. Are we to assume that the British 'securocrats' that sanctioned this operation were unaware that, given that the informant was a 22 year old incompetent idiot, any information he might offer should have been treated with serious suspicion, especially if he was being offered early release in exchange for any information on 'terrorists' he could provide, meaning that there was a distinct possibility that the information he provided was bogus, as indeed it turned out to be?

The obvious conclusion here is that the Forest Gate raid was given the green light, not because any faith was placed in the 'tip off' from the incompetent idiot, but rather because it would help to create the 'reality', in the minds of the British population, that Islamic terrorism is a real threat to the world and that the Blair government is justified in introducing further draconian anti-terror laws. After all, if 250 heavily-armed police are kicking in doors and shooting people, then there simply must be a good and justifiable reason for it, right? Well, yes, there is a justifiable reason for it, but it's not any justice that you or I would readily ascribe to, unless of course we were deceived into doing so.

Incompetent half-wits - the FBI wants You For Islamic Terror Opportunities!
We are also reminded of the 'Miami Seven' affair in the US, where an undercover FBI agent, posing as an 'al-Qaeda' operative, approached a group of apparently incompetent half-wits living in a warehouse in Florida. The group's name is "the Sea of David' and far from having anything to do with 'Islamic terrorism' they all claimed to be Christians who "trained through the bible". In a perfect example of how agents of the US government are actively attempting to manufacture Islamic terrorism, the undercover FBI agent:

approached the group and asked them if they wanted to join 'al-Qaeda'
