I just got a call from my brother about this latest terrorist attack in Scotland. I am thankful that there does not appear to be any loss of life. But…
Witnesses said two Asian-looking men crashed a four-wheel drive vehicle into the doors of the airport’s main terminal building. One of the men got out of the Jeep Cherokee with his clothes on fire. He was restrained by passengers while others put out the flames with a fire extinguisher. The two men were later arrested.
The Paisley hospital where the injured was being treated was evacuated after a suspect device was found, said Chief Constable Willie Rae of Strathclyde Police, who also revealed that the attack was being linked to the two car bombs discovered in London yesterday.
In a televised statement in 10 Downing Street following a meeting of the emergency contingencies committee Cobra, Prime Minister Gordon Brown urged the British people to be “vigilant” and to support the police and security services in their counter-terror measures.
One eyewitness at yesterday’s attack in Glasgow, Jackie Kennedy, 46, a beautician from the city, described how she watched one of the occupants of the car douse himself in petrol and set himself alight.(source)
Such low-tech bombs can be put together without even creating suspicion but the leftists love to say that the risk of such things is very low. However when we read accounts of how much these nutters are in love with death and killing…
“He had a big smirk on his face. He lifted up what appeared to be a five-litre drum, which I think had petrol in it, and set himself on fire,” she said. “His clothes were melting in front of my very eyes.
“The police tried to pounce on him but he fought back and was struggling with them. It was only when a member of the public punched him in the face that the police managed to restrain him. The police were trying to spray CS gas in his face but it was not working. I can’t believe what I have just seen. I have no doubt this was a terrorist attack.”
One eyewitness said : “Some holidaymaker tried to restrain him, then the police came over and wrestled him to the ground – the fire was burning through his clothes – and finally put him out with a fire extinguisher.”
Another said one of the men had tried to open the boot of the vehicle but was not successful.
“Police tried to restrain him but the guy was quite strong and he started fighting off the police,” he said(source)
Is it any wonder that the claims that Islam is a “Religion of Peace” ring ever so hollow?
May I suggest that the medical treatment of the burnt terrorist not include ANY pain relief?
