Could be copycat. It didn't sound like much in common.There was speculation that this was linked with the potential london car-bombings yesterday, due to the similarities (cans of petrol in the cars being one of them). However, I think it's just a coincidence that these two decided to do this today.
Yea, it didn't sound too similar to me either. However, I've just checked the BBC website and come across this: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/6257606.stm. Apparently they were linked, arrests have been made in other parts of the country, and now we're on the highest security level.It didn't sound like much in common.
There has to be a balance between extra security and the economic costs, including delays or disruption.They stepped up security in NY airports big time; the same goes for the subways. But the bad part is that all the extra security presence will be gone in a couple months time. Its just a shame that they have to wait for something to happen to take some extra preventative measures.
