    From another site re donating blood:

    Do NOT donate blood unless asked to...

    When 9/11 happened, they had a huge influx of blood, much of which wasn't needed. They then had a dip, as people can't donate blood again for (6 months?)

    The end result was a lot of wasted blood, and the struggling to fulfill supply.

    The blood service will make an appeal if neccesary.

    Also, please don't take my post as patronising or condescending, just trying to point it out..

    Well the whole thing about Al-qaida is that it's just a collection of (largely) independent groups, and this was probably only carried out by a dozen or so people. By people I mean completely cunts obviously.

    To add re blood:

    Although blood banks greatly appreciated the good will and effort of the new donors, Chambers says their donations wouldn't have helped mass casualties on Sept. 11. Instead, these people would have required blood collected in the weeks before the attacks, since blood needs time to be tested and processed.

    Do you really know that? Is it helpful to call these terorrists cunts? They may be widows of men we killed - or mothers/sisters/brothers of men we killed.

    Isn;t it time we realised our own responsibilty here - we've fucked around with the Arab world for decades.

    The answer is we do something about getting rid of Blair - like the Spanish did after the Madrid blasts.

    All I know is the reports that the station has been shut due to a suspect package; I'll see what I can get from the local news and post back.

    Charles Clarke has called them terrorist attacks. so much for due process and evidence based statements.

    Major Tom Mentalist Wierdo RIP

    It's alright to then to refer to the terorrists as cunts - but I can't respond - just saying I think that unreasonable language is not going to help. That's all I want to say
