      Perhaps this is the plan of the Western political forces: To intimidate citizens and increase spending on the fight against terrorism.
      Well, with terrorist regimes.

            In achieving its “Wishlist,” the West rarely cares about the victims and consequences.
            ---------------------

            In this case, London politicians seem to have "taken care" of their citizens.
            As I understand it, the explosion did not contain any damaging metal elements in the bag. Otherwise, there would have been more victims of burns and lacerations with deaths.
            Poor common people in London! It would seem that they have something to do with it ?! But the terrorists "blame" them as their bargaining chips with the British authorities! Something the British, apparently, did not pay the terrorists what was promised to them - they “threw” them at something. Interestingly, the British did not finish the terrorists: money? weapons? support in manpower? Not all militants were taken out of any hot spot? thrown to the mercy of fate? gave them little social benefits in England?

                This is not a terrorist attack. This is his imitation: there were no destructive elements, only the detonator exploded. The Anglo-Saxons want to convince everyone that they, too, suffer from terror.

              It is difficult to say what ordinary Britons are “to blame” for before the barmaleys. But the fact that there were no destructive elements in the explosive device undoubtedly saved more than one life. I admit the thought that there was a demonstration attack.

              The reasons for the real terrorist attacks we all see is the indefatigable desire to earn more dough from other people's troubles. Not all migrants live happily on benefits. Someone may have enough, but most want more. In addition, not all visitors with a healthy psyche, and some, generally in the past, gladly cut their heads to infidels. However, these are tricks that do not lead to victims, or the victims are as a result of their own stupidity, most likely the actions of their own special services. In this story, not even a specialist can see, this is a production.

      As in another branch one citizen of Great Britain has spoken, it’s you who live in the barracks of control, and we have a free country here. Even when buying a SIM card, you do not need to present a passport. So ordinary citizens suffer, for the imaginary freedoms that politicians and corporations imposed on them in the pursuit of power, money and spheres of influence.
      My condolences to the victims.

      Nobody seems to have died. Eyewitnesses report a heat wave. The tendency, however, the demolitionists are not torn to the guria, they are trying to shed and save their own skin (the terrorist did not detonate the bomb on himself). And still, they are no longer trying to attack large objects - this station is unremarkable, unlike, for example, Westminster (near BigBen) or Power Hill near the Tower. So they are afraid of security measures there.

          The version of excessive kindness and tolerance towards representatives of a certain religious group towards Western society and its values ​​is considered. It is possible that the previously adopted approach will be reviewed.
          I am sure that the terrorist will prove to be a nee UK citizen and he is taking revenge for public housing and medical care (as almost always was). We will find out soon.

          I ask you to pay attention that there was no alla in the bar and the terrorist carried away the soles, and did not fly to the guri for gluing from pieces. And his wife and children (or whoever is with him) probably live in England at the expense of the state with a level of prosperity significantly higher than the average Russian (and average European too).

            I don’t know about you, but I see, either this is an unwise person-a loser-schoolboy who failed to correctly combine the ingredients, or the work of special services. I’m just leaning towards the second version, because the special services and authorities understand that they gave too many freedoms. For their own, twisted citizens, all this works, but for visitors, complete irresponsibility, which provokes them to various bad actions.

      Most likely, improvised explosives made from concentrated hydrogen peroxide and flour (they used to be caught before) turned out to be too artisanal and didn’t detonate but burned down. Eyewitnesses speak of a heatwave, not shock or concussion.

Unlike previous strokes, cellular communication is working fine. Eyewitnesses observed a tongue of flame and a heat wave immediately after the cotton detonator could not cause an explosion - the filling simply burnt out (the car even next to the bomb did not damage the seat velor at 10 centimeters intact) Panic and stairs became a striking element (the station opened in 1880 practically it hasn’t changed since then and there are no escalators there, but it’s not underground either.

                In the 90s, we arrived with comrades in the city of Voronezh (1996), a meeting was organized near the railway station. When they arrived, a lot of police and dog handlers with dogs saw that there was no time to find out. Already at home I learned on television that in the waiting room, in a backpack or bag, the detonator detonated near the IED, but the TNT filling did not detonate, so it was scattered around the room, lucky people ...

                  Here the detonator from pussycat is usually, and the explosive is a mixture of flour and a strong solution of peroxide. It is extracted by evaporation from a weak one. And they are caught, the smoke is poisonous, spoils the paint, and kills the plants. Rumor has it that civilian wagons with gas analyzers on board drive through the streets - even during the rave and underground cookers this was the case. They are also caught trying to get an industrial freezer - it is needed to store finished products.
