3 Brits Convicted of Mass Bombing Plot

In this round of Civilization vs. Barbarians: Civilization 3, Barbarians 0:

A jury at Woolwich Crown Court in London found 27-year-old Ashik Ali; Irfan Khalid, also 27; and 31-year-old Irfan Naseer -- nicknamed Big Irfan, or Chubbs -- guilty of multiple counts of preparing for terrorism....

The men were "the real deal" and, if successful, would have perpetrated "another 9/11 or another 7/7 in the U.K.," said Detective Inspector Adam Gough, the case's senior investigating officer.

We won this round, but the game isn't over yet.
