7th July 2005.
Going back and reading my blog entry for that day and from the days following the attack (don’t forget the reprise on the 21st July) made me feel weird, sad, empty, pointless. A blog captures all the moments you experience, whether good or bad and going over them again feels like the digging up of a corpse.
Somethings change, some things stay the same. I still have no doubt that al-Qaeda had no involvement whatsoever in the attacks, the video conveniently released today only confirms my suspicions. Also there is no evidence of their involvement and plenty of evidence that points to an independent act of aggression; of young men being manipulated beyond their means.
Unashamedly, I’m still of the opinion that this was an attack orchestrated by our government against its own people (like 9/11) in order to solidify an alliance of the war on a noun. The facts stand as follows:
- the 7th of July had been designated a training day to re-create a terrorist attack on London’s transport network, amazingly simulations of terrorist attacks were happening at the exact same stations that were targeted.
- My goverment has consistently resisted the call for an enquiry into the events of 7/7.
- The ringleader of the group of bombers was Mohammed Siddique Khan and he was was on the payroll of British Intelligence..
Here are those whose lives were lost in the atrocity, my thoughts today are with their families.
