The British officials are freaking out about the incidents in London and Glasgow, pushing the terror alert to the top level. According to the BBC they do believe the cars found in London and the car incident in Glasgow are connected because there are "similarities".

Chief Constable Willie Rae said: "There are clearly similarities, and we can confirm that [the Glasgow attack] is being treated as a terrorist incident."

Please consider these "similarities":

  • In London two Mercedes were used.
  • In Glasgow a Jeep Cherokee was involved.


  • In London the cars were parked late at night.
  • The Glasgow the car was driving in the middle of the afternoon.
  • In London the drivers walked away and vanished.
  • In Glasgow the driver and a passenger jumped out in panic, one of them on fire, when the burning car hit the building. Both are accounted for.
  • In London petrol (gas), propane canisters and an unspecified amount of nails have been found inside the cars.
  • In Glasgow no such stuff was found inside the car.
  • In London the two cars were parked along the route of yesterdays gay pride parade.
  • In Glasgow the car ran onto (not into) an airport building.
  • In London the cars did not burn.
  • In Glasgow the car did burn underneath while still driving and before it hit the building.
  • There is a history of nail bomb attacks on gays in London.
  • There is no history of burning cars hitting an airport building in Glasgow.
  • The Mercedes types found in London were never factory recalled for carrying nails or propane.
  • Various Jeep Cherokee types, similar to the one on fire in Glasgow, have been subject of recall campaigns because of possible vehicle fires (NHTSA Campaign ID number: 02V104000, 00V195000, 02V104000, 01V348000, 01V374000, 02V032000, 02V104000 plus a 07/2006 recall for seat heating fires).
  • In London the police does not say how much propane and what amount of nails were found in the cars and it does not provide any account of a possible bomb trigger nor CCTV pictures of the car drivers.
  • In Glasgow the police is very vague about the identity of the people inside the car.

Because of all these above "similarities", we agree that there must be a connection between Glasgow and London.

The most likely one though being the intent of police commissioners and their bosses to reinforce fear of terror within the British people.

What I really wonder about though is the yet unreported connection of the London-Glasgow terror events to Iran's hidden Imam nuke program ...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
