July 7 bombings remembered

The second anniversary of the July 7 London suicide bombings will be commemorated at a series of low-key ceremonies today.

Hundreds of survivors and relatives are expected to gather at Kings Cross station, where the first bomb detonated two years ago.

London Mayor Ken Livingstone, Tessa Jowell, Transport Commissioner Peter Hendy and Tim O'Toole of London Underground will lay flowers at Kings Cross.

At 3pm 52 white balloons will be released outside Westminster Abbey to represent the number of victims that lost their lives as a result of the four bombs.

Families that were affected by the terror attack requested that there be no large public event and a national silence will not be observed.

Security services are on heightened alert as a number of high-profile events take place across the capital including the first stage of the Tour de France.

Tight security will also be surrounding the women's tennis final at Wimbledon and the Live Earth concert at Wembley Stadium which will feature Madonna and the Red Hot Chili Peppers among other stars.

Prime Minister Gordon Brown has warned that people face a summer of intensified security checks in the wake of the terrorist car bomb attacks in London and Glasgow.

The UK national threat level remains 'severe', which on Thursday was reduced from 'critical' - meaning an attack is thought to be imminent.

Work is under way to plan and erect a permanent memorial to the victims in Hyde Park's Lovers' Walk.

More than 700 people were also injured when three bombs exploded within seconds of each other on three London Underground trains.

The explosions took place at Russell Square, Aldgate and Edgware Road. A fourth bomb exploded on a bus nearly an hour later in Tavistock Square.

turkish_cypriot, all the hype we will hear about now will strengthen the grip that the government already have on the consciences of the British public, you will see all the 'dignitaries' (some even tearful) expressing their grief at the sad losses resulting from this henious crime against humanity.

You will not hear them mentioning the fact that THEY are equally responsible, neither will you be able to recognize the fact that they merely pay 'Lip Service' to the bereaved, they are too well schooled in deception for that.

You will have to attend the after-service piss-ups, to observe their true feelings, some of them will be fumbling each other in the 'Gents', others will be savouring the delights of hallucinagenic substances, ready for the next opportunity to expose their 'Bleeding Hearts' to the gullible public.

Security will of course be 'Very Tight'. :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

To all those in support of the vile criminals who expressed their dismay at the British involvement in Iraq , by blowing them selves up on a London bus , in the underground , killing and maiming totaly innocent people , let me tell you that you are an accessory to this hideous acts and if you expressed same sentiments in the UK and witnesses were available you would most probably be prosecuted. It makes me puke to know that people living in the UK would condone as you do such barbaric actions by barbarians shouting God all mighty as they detonate their bodies. You make me utterly sick that you can justify the actions of someone getting on a London bus and without giving a thought as to who they might kill they detonate them selves. You are guilty too of this obscenity and should be thoroughly ashamed of your selves.
Turkish Cypriot , you are a young man with years ahead of you . Answer me one question.Turkey today is occupying a part of Cyprus that used to be the home of some 200 thousand Cypriots. How would you react today if the dispossessed were to commence an act of successive suicide attacks killing innocent Turkish Cypriots , tourists and anyone else for that matter.Let me tell you how I would react. Exactly as I react when these barbarians commit suicide taking with them many innocents. The G/Cs and the T/Cs are my people. I would not in a million years accept that the killing of women and children intentionally is right. I would condemn such barbaric acts UNRESERVEDLY , No buts and ifs .

I believe ULKMAN called you a tosser , he was wrong !
You are the biggest moron I have ever had the misfortune of trying to educate. You are blinded by your inadequacies and your fervent hatred of the West .All the bullshit you have given us on this forum regarding your background is untrue. You are a caveman with a heavy chip on your shoulders , who now and again comes out of the cave to view the world and recharge your batteries with more hate for the West.

I find your views not only objectionable but acutely obsene and in contradiction of everything that the civilized world stands for. Not once have you condemned UNCODITIONALY such merderous acts always justifying such heinous acts with BUT THIS AND BUT THAT.
Let me once again state : What a bloody waste of education.

I had two friends who died 2 years ago in the bombings in London so maybe I should say no more!!!!!!!!!!!

I credit myself that I always see both sides of an argument...but in situations when a friend or family are killed it its very hard. But I still try!

Rest in peace all the people that were taken from us on 7 July and for all those around the world.

miltiades, I am extremely sorry, you see I didn't realize you were trying to educate me, had I been aware of that fact I might have paid more attention to your persistant ravings.

Never mind, you can rest assured that you are one person I will certainly remember in years to come, not for your wisdom Sir,but for your lack of it.

You have proven yourself to be unable to understand anything outside of your own sphere of perception, a very sad indictment for a man of your years....................God Bless................... :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink:

My point exactly!!!!

Dont misunderstand me I dont think they were right or their actions justified AT ALL!

But you have to think that if 2 bombs effect us this much, imagine how it effects these people who get bombed on a daily basis!!!! :?
