Are there any bets for a guy, wearing a long brownish coat, picking up the fallen torch and running all the way to light the flame at the stadium?  It happened on telly....!

Very slim I'd say.

There are too many Islamic "freedom fighters" with assets banked there.

:)

Can't be blowing up your own bank. Even terrorists have direct debits to pay.

If I was a terrorist and wanted to slaughter loads...I'd ignore London and blow the crap out of some poor sods in a city miles away.Same difference...lotsa dead innocent citizens and all the robocops in one place hundreds of miles away.

You don't attack a superior heavily armoured enemy from the front...you attack the flanks.

$100 says there will be a terroist attack or a Munich style event.

$200 says this will be the last Olympics.

I hope you're wrong.  But there has been a bit of news about security lapses in the run up to the games.  I think Londoners should be more worried about exploding buses and subways than aircraft or missiles.  What a damned world we live in today...

  We've cast the world, we've set the stage,
  for what could be, the darkest age...

Maybe...the problem is that terrorists dont play by the rule book...extremely unpredictable but well thought out plans.
