    Been watching it for several minutes now and came here and two of you beat me to it!

    Sounds like they poured petrol on themselves and the vehicle and then drove it into the airport.

    I've often thought if the terrorists start using cars as weapons then we would face a true danger and threat. Hopefully these things are not going to become frequent.

    And for the record, eyewitnesses said they were Asian males (in the UK, the news said, you use Asian to characterize people from India, Pakistan, etc., where here in the States, we used it to mean Oriental, as in Chinese, Korean, etc.) It was reported one suspect hospitalized had a suicide bomb belt on. A third suspect's body was in the car, they reported.

    5 arrested now - the two in the car, another two on the M6 expressway and another in Liverpool.

    And, yes, 'Asian' is normally used to mean South Asian over here.

    I heard they arrested seven suspects so far. Two of them are doctors. One is from Iraq and the other is from Jordan.

    Now today they have said that 5 are doctors. So much for the so-called poor wanting to do jihad because they have no future, etc., etc., blah, blah, as some would have us believe.

    So much for the claim by some that these United States and the United Kingdom have to fight them over there so that we won't have to fight them over here.

    This is the reason why I think we should close our borders.

    I'm rather worried about people using vehicles as weapons. Between this and the recent attempts in England concerning cars.

    Well, to anyone who has close contact on a professional level with muslim doctors in America, the fact that there are terrorist muslim doctors will not come as a shock.

    When 09/11 happened: Friends of mine working in 3 different hospitals said some of the muslim doctors were cheering (this was witnessed by nursing staff & patients, although it was always denied by hospital administrators). In one hospital I know of, the American doctors were so angry and upset about it, they banished the muslim doctors from the doctor's lounge for a few weeks. I had a friend who worked in a muslim doctor's office for several years (in the 1990s) as a general practitioner. She showed me some of the jihad against America magazines coming into his office in the mail addressed to him (the ones in English shocked me; hard telling what the arabic ones said).

    That's shameful. It is amazing that they were allowed to continue working in those places.

    We don't have enough doctors working in these United States to get rid of any.

    If you've ever travelled you have probably filled in temporary visa forms. When entering the US there is a box youhave to tick yes or no that practically asks if you are a foreign spy.

    Maybe these doctors did put it on their application form but got the jobs anyway... :) I know the NHS is so inept it would do that.
