    Glasgow airport

    Suspects arrested after ramming car into Glasgow Int airport...

    Detectives hunted Saturday for suspects who abandoned two explosives-packed cars in the heart of London's nightlife district, reviewing closed circuit television footage and scouring the vehicles for clues.

    Amid fears of further attacks, a burning sport utility vehicle crashed at full speed into the terminal building at Glasgow airport in Scotland, police and witnesses said.

    The airport was evacuated and all flights suspended. TV footage showed flames and black smoke rising from a vehicle in front of the building.

    "The Jeep is completely on fire and it exploded not long after. It exploded at the entrance to the terminal," witness Stephen Clarkson told the British Broadcasting Corp. "It may have been an explosion of petrol in the tank because it was not a massive explosion."

    Earlier Saturday, counterterrorism officers at Scotland Yard briefed Prime Minister Gordon Brown, and the British leader later chaired a meeting of top spies, police and senior officials in COBRA, the government's emergency committee, his office said.

    Detectives said they were keeping an open mind about the suspects in the London case, but terrorism experts said the signs pointed to a cell linked to or inspired by al-Qaida. Police would not comment on an ABC News report saying police had a "crystal clear" picture of one suspect from CCTV footage.

    Police said they were strengthening patrols in the city to reassure the public, with 350 officers on duty at the annual Gay Pride parade through central London, not far from where two Mercedes loaded with gasoline, gas canisters and nails were found Friday.

    One car was abandoned outside a nightclub on Haymarket, a busy street of shops, clubs, theaters and restaurants just yards from Trafalgar Square and Piccadilly Circus.

    The other had been towed after being parked illegally on a nearby street and was discovered in an impound lot about a mile away near Hyde Park.

    Deputy Assistant Commissioner Peter Clarke, the Metropolitan Police anti-terrorism chief, said the two devices could have caused "significant injury or loss of life." ....

    I'm still waiting to hear outrage from the Muslim religious leaders over the perversion of their religion by these terrorists. Maybe it's time to offer a choice: get out or go to camp. We will never know the number of lives saved by the internment of Jaspanese-Americans in WWII.

    While I agree with the basic sentiment that Muslim leaders need to be much more visible and vocal against terrorism -- I've got to disagree with the last part of your post.

    The internment of the Japanese-Americans in WWII was just plain wrong. Entire families, including those who had family members serving valiantly in our armed forces, were unjustly forced into the camps without any supporting suspicion. Contrast that with the people we have in Guantanamo Bay today; they were all taken into custody in response to actual suspicions, based on documented facts. (The relative merit is another issue...)

    Jks9199.....Political niceties aside, the point is whether you agree with internment or not.....the fact that the Japanese-Americans were locked away certainly prohibited any of them from engaging in terrorists attacks.
