Whoever gives a warning of an impending terrorist attack that actually occurs, usually tends to know something about that attack, and should be considered suspicious by law enforcement. Right?
I don't think so. It could well be that Scotland Yard received an anonymus call from inside the british islamistic scene by one of their connections or agents that they have heard that an attack is in action, but they don't know exactly how, where and who.
I don't see any conspiracy beside the obvious conspiracy going on there, namely that militant and islamistic
people, and not islamic
ones like a lot of people here have described them without noticing their latent islamophobia expressed therein, have set up small bombs in trains and a bus and detonated them either with a timer or a mobile-phone-call.
In their eyes and according to their ideology they are doing something good, retaliating or revenging the death of muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan with the possible and wished sideeffect that it could convince the british public to pressurize their government to withdraw from Iraq and Afghanistan. In order to further comfort their conscious, militant islamists define the western people, as being equal to polytheists of the ancient times, and that the violent death of them is not seen as a sin by God, but even as a good deed.
What western politicians, espescially american ones are doing, is exaggerating the threath of islamistic terror and trying to get as much political, military, economic gain out of it as possible.
But that's to be expected.
The reason why especially middle-eastern-muslims have a problem to uncompromisingly condemn islamistic militancy and islamistic terror, is not only because part of their societies are already islamistic due to wahabitic-financed mosques, but espescially because they rightfully feel wronged by the west for decades and sum up the death of their civilians due to direct or indirect western policy, and see the compared to that miniscule death of western civilians at the hand of islamistic militants as a small retaliation.
