Did the London Bombers intent for it to be a Suicide Bombing?

From the Associated Press via New York NewsDay...

They bought roundtrip train tickets and paid for long-term parking -- two of the details that are prompting the intelligence community to question if the four London bombers intended to die.

On July 7, Hasib Hussain, Shahzad Tanweer, and Mohammad Sidique Khan traveled to Luton, north of London, to meet with Jermaine Lindsay.

According to experts who have been briefed by police, they parked a rental car outside the train station and paid to park for seven days, then purchased roundtrip tickets to London. Police later found explosives in the car.

When the men arrived at King's Cross station in the British capital, they split up and attacked three Tube trains and a bus --killing 52 people and themselves.

No suicide notes or videotaped messages for their families have surfaced as has happened in attacks elsewhere.

That would also explain why the subsequent bombings have failed. There's little doubt that the bombers knew that they would be killing people. It also should send a message to potential “couriers” for radical Moslem, that they may not be aware of the entirety of what's expected of them.
