Don't get me wrong, I'm glad they are as this certainly keeps a lot more people alive and in one piece. But apart from the 7th July bombings a couple of years ago the rest of the attempts have been so disorganised or farcicle that if it wasn't such a serious problem I'd be laughing loads. OK, maybe I am laughing a fair bit in anycase.
But between having suicide bombers whose backpacks all refuse to detonate and car bombers who crash into a bin and run away you'd have thought that whoever is training these idiots needs to be sacked. Or is it really only the utter idiots that are trickling to 'The Cause' and these incompetants are the only ones they have to play with?
Anyway, the car bombing that was averted in London last night was done so through stupidity and not anything that Her Majesty's Government did to prevent it. Sadly this will largely be the case with most attempts. The gvoernment can only do so much but a lot of it ends up being down to luck.
But luck is definetly on our side (our being the non-terrorists) with eyewitness reports such as this...
"Bouncers from a nearby nightclub said they saw the car being driven erratically before it crashed into a bin. They said the driver then got out and ran off."
