My Way News – Flaming Car Rams U.K. Airport; 2 Arrests
GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) – Two men rammed a flaming sport utility vehicle into the main terminal of Glasgow airport Saturday, crashing into the glass doors at the entrance and sparking a fire, witnesses said. Police said two suspects were arrested.
The airport – Scotland’s largest – was evacuated and all flights suspended, a day after British police thwarted a plot to bomb central London, discovering two cars abandoned with loads of gasoline, gas canisters and nails.
“One has to conclude … these are linked,” Dame Pauline Neville-Jones, former head of Britain’s joint intelligence committee, told Sky News. “This is a very young government, and we may yet see further attacks.”
Britain’s prime minister, Gordon Brown, who took office only Wednesday, was being briefed on developments by his officials, Downing Street said.
So, a country that seems to have believed that they were only targets because Tony Blair was George Bush’s love toy, has to now reconcile three terrorist incidents in just a few days, all since Tony Blair resigned.
It’s pretty clear to me that the terrorists are trying to intimidate the new PM. If the new PM has half the gonadic propensity of his predecessor, then the terrorists are doing a good job of creating a new ally for GW Bush and America.
It will be interesting to see if the new British government is more like the old one, or more like Spain.
