A Blog Roundup Of The News

So you all probably know already about the car bombs in London and Glasgow. Did you know about the Scottish baggage handler John Smeaton who fought a blazin' jihadi who was "on fleemes?" Another great video clip at Hot Air. John's got a wiki entry, as well as a tribute site. Some select quotes of his (from Wiki):

"You’re no hitting the Polis mate, there's nae chance... So I ran straight towards the guy, we're all trying to get a kick-in at him, take a boot to subdue the guy... That's just Glasgow; we'll set about ye."
He also had a brother in arms, the cabby who broke his ankle kicking a jihadi in the balls. And Ace wonders why the MSM isn't mentioning the obvious (mild content warning-one MF-word). Great stuff!

In other news, Haray Caray mans a post in Iraq, providing some much needed humor to a serious situation, Allahpundit brings us news of creative and brave Apache pilots, more jihadi 'unrest' at the Red Mosque in Islamabad with the latest developments from ABC here, Alan Johnston is freed from/by his kidnappers, an end to an "appalling" affair, Farfour has passed, Iowahawk has the scoop (content warning) of all scoops in the UK bombing department, and IMAO has the anti-jihadi photoshop caption contest. That should do it for now, I'm off to Transformers baby!
