SickosTwo Doctors Held Over Bomb Attacks
Two doctors were among five people being held as terror suspects last night after the bomb plots in London and Glasgow.
One was one of two men who tried to drive a blazing Jeep packed with petrol, gas canisters and nails into Glasgow Airport on Saturday. ... The revelation raises the horrifying prospect that Al Qaeda propaganda is reaching beyond disaffected young Muslims.
...Two of the five people arrested were a woman of 27 and her 26-year-old husband, boxed in by unmarked police cars as they drove on the M6 in Cheshire.
...One of the doctors, the man arrested on the M6, was said to be a Jordanian-born doctor at the North Staffordshire Hospital in Stoke-on-Trent.
So 26 isn't young anymore? Doctors are incapable of disaffection? Are doctors in the employ of the state ever less than disaffected on any given day? Didn't the resumes of the 9/11 suiciders see and raise that very same horrifying prospect once and for all?
Thankfully, socialized terrorism works about as well as you'd expect:
...It also emerged that only "technical failure" stopped the bombs spreading carnage among late-night revellers.
Mobile phones in the cars were meant to trigger a blast when they were called.
The bombers called the Tiger Tiger car twice, and the other four times, but the bombs failed to detonate.Like an abyss Narcissus, Australia stares into the depths and sees itself:

Ambulance officers were called to the Tiger Tiger bar in the city's West End about 1am on Friday to help the struggling party-goer.
The officers then noticed a car parked nearby with smoke seemingly pouring out of it.
They called police, who noticed a mobile phone sitting on the dash.
The "smoke" is now believed to have been vapours from the 60 litres of petrol stashed in the back seat. Bomb experts were called and a robot sent in to defuse the bomb. (Aternate post title: Tiger, Tiger, Gutteryng Dym)
