    Oh okay. Why do you get off at Crumpsall? You don't goto Abraham Moss do you?

    btw sorry for all the weird questions, I'm not a stalker, I just find it odd that you live minutes away from me and I'm wondering if I've seen you around.

    It'd be funny if you were one of these people I push and squash on the tram everyday and I don't even know it's you.

    Probably not, heh once though, somebody blocked the door, and I couldn't get off at Crumpsall, and got stranded in Bowker Vale. Have you noticed that one of the trams that comes around 8.30 is called EROTICA? :|

    The question is if ETA committed this then why on earth would they direct it to al Qaida and openly deny the act? How would it serve their cause? It doesnt make any sense.

    maybe they werent expecting the explosions to be so deadly, and they are putting the blame on someone else to not lose their support

    On the otherhand...

    Islamist extremists have the following motives:

    • 1. For Spain's support & alliance with america in the Iraq war.

      2. For Spain's huge success in capturing muslim terrorists.

      3. The need to make an example for those who support America.

      4. Old accounts. In medieval times the Spaniards reconquered all lands stolen by muslims and drove all muslims into the sea. A very humiliating defeat for the whole Ummah (muslim world).

    That is absurd. The ETA are highly experienced bombers and isnt it quite obvious what 12 Bombs in 3 crowded trains would do?

    It doesnt make sense to blame the ETA for this.

    i would say that since the bombings were so extremely well planned it has to have been something people have planning.
    i cant imagine it being a coincidence either. There are exactly 911 days between the two dates and it was two and a half years later which makes me think the sick minds of Al Qaeda who could be behind th

    as i said before i think the only way anyone could understand the full impact of the bombings, would be if it happened to them in their local town or city, and they experience it themselves.

    i also think the media put far too much emphasis on cases which dont really matter, such as the footballers being locked up in spain, when there are hundreds dying every day in places such as Burundi, Haiti and
    Liberia from civil war and millions dying from genocide in Rwanda, bosnia and iraq-(noone bothered to care at the time).
    Also look at many african countries in which it is happening at this very moment, such as zimbabwe.

    im sure we'll find out soon the true story

    (p.s) i get the met too quite often but from eccles to piccadilly gdns.
