    So far, doesn't seem as serious.

    I just heard that since the explosion was relatively small, they are now concerned it was used to disperse some kind of biological agent. Not sure of this, just a rumor floating on the internet from Brits in London.

    Fox was reporting that at the one train station, where a nail bomb exploded, there were people entering with Haz-mat suits.

    Small explosions would be in keeping with the detonating of chemical or biological bombs... you don't want to destroy the agents with the heat generated from a large explosion.

    Of course, this is just pure speculation at this point!

    They also were reporting that the police thought some of the 'bangs' which people thought were guns, may have been detonators. I will say the police milling around do not look overly concerned, then again, they may just be patrol people.

    Here's another British report:

    Haz-mat suits are SOP in situations such as this.

    Reports are saying that the areas have tested NEGATIVE for chemical or biological agents! That's great!

    More likely the bombs were so poorly constructed they didn't detonate properly (thank God!).

    Here's a fact, folks

    London has a large Muslim population.

    Now, watch what happens, the Brits will be deporting a lot of them back to wherever they came from. Incarcerating a lot more and if they haven't already, pass a Patriot Act of their own....

    Don't be surprised if they start setting up camps to "detain" Muslims just like we did with Japanese Americans during World War II.
