Blazing car driven into Glasgow airport

by on Jun.30, 2007, under Uncategorized

It seems that two men, described by eyewitnesses as Asian, have driven a burning vehicle into Glasgow airport, or at least crashed it into the front doors – it didn’t get into the terminal itself.

Apparently the Jeep Cherokee was on fire before crashing into the building. Police restrained and arrested the two men, with help from members of the public.

A Whitehall spokesman said:

the incident was not being treated as a national security threat however the prime minister is being kept informed of developments and is expected to chair a meeting of Cobra – the emergency committee later.

This comes just a day after a car containing explosives was found in Picadilly in London (and BBC’s news report states two cars, so there must have been another somewhere).

It seems odd that there’s a sudden spate of failed attacks. They don’t sound organised enough to have been carried out by real terrorists, in my opinion – they seem too shoddily-done.

Alternatively, for a nice dose of cynical conspiracy theory: perhaps the government had fake attacks performed to justify continued “war on terrorism” in Iraq, Afghanistan etc. :)
(No, I don’t really believe that to be the case).
