    I bet you there isn't even such a group as Al Queda - it's purely a scapegoat for the media to blame every single terrorist attack on. I highly doubt yesterday's attack was by ETA - it was too professional for them.

    Could have been a more extreme splinter grop. The 'Real ETA', if you like.

    It could be a small group of spanish terrorists, it could be one person, it's not exactly difficult to construct bombs and plan a terrorist attack. Terrorist organisations don't require millions of pounds to fund their attacks. Plans for bombs are quite accessible and the components for them are not difficult to find either.

    It could just be an individual. Timothy McVeigh managed to kill 300 in the Oklahoma bombing acting alone. Building a bomb is really piss easy so you don't need to be a member of a sophisticated terrorist unit to wreak havoc.

    Yes, it's possible.

    Do you think it's related to Spain supporting the war on Iraq?

    thats true you do call, 911, how weird
    i think you are all veering from the point here though.
    imagine a terrorist attack of this size in your local town or city.
    thinking about one in manchester it would be devaststing.

    Whilst I hate to play into stupid culture, I was sardined on the metrolink this morning, coming into Victoria, and couldn't help notice the similarities.

    I don't know. I guess it could be, or it could just be some nutter who's not happy with the spanish government. I'm not going to pretend that i know the person's motives.

    I know the feeling of being..sardined.

    It's worse when you're surrounded by people that don't exactly smell nice...

    Yeah, sure.

    It's just that it said on the news that it could be related, just wanted to know everyone's opinions.

    Trying to get on a 8.30am is just not funny. Though it is funny when the doors open and people come tumbling out and have to try and pack on again, even funnier when people step out to let somebody move out or something and then they can't get back on. I think the worst thing about being sardined is when it comes to a halt, and you go flying forwards into the person in front of you because you have nothing to grab onto. Or when you find a door which has room, and some old lady pushes past you and takes the space.

    Lol yeah. I go on around that time too and I was in a rush, and there was absolutely no room to get on. People were overflowing, but I just got on never the less, squashed the person even more that was standing by the door. I'm actually surprised the doors closed, with my bulky bag anyway.
    They really should make the trams more regular, especially at that time. It's a hazard.

    Where do you get it from?

    Yeah they should, that 12 mins delay message is so annoying, and they have double trams on when they're needed.

    Hmmmm, it is a very big coincidence and it's absolutely awful! It's just disgusting, I really don't understand some people.
    We are in trouble if Al Quaeda helped ETA, like things couldn't get any worse.
    I personally think thats the most likey possiblity.

    I don't understand everyone who counts the days... a bit pathetic to be honest. It's real people we are talking about. 190+ dead... that's probally the size of, say your sixth form. 1,300 odd killed, one, maybe one and half times your schools. Sept the 11 killed so many you can't put it in context. But think, your sixth form killed, your whole school injured...

    Too many people to start comparing dates and numbers.

    Whether you like it or not, they're just another statistic and so are we. I don't re-call anything being brought up about the thousands of innocent civilians killed in Afghanistan.

    Does anybody feel that perhaps the UK media and public are not being as errr, 'caring' as perhaps they would be if it were somewhere else. I can't help thinking if 200 people had died in London, or even Paris, not only would the UK public have reacted alot more like they did to 9/11, but so would the rest of Europe.

    There was that message left wasn't there, "Where are Britain and the US, your allys now?" I think it's a shame that this is true. If we're going to do all this shoulder to shoulder, push on for our way of life stuff, we should be doing it with Spain, and we're not.
