...and over 20 suspects have been arrested by British authorities today.
From the AP: "British authorities said Thursday they thwarted a terrorist plot to simultaneously blow up several aircraft heading to the United States using explosives smuggled in carry-on luggage. U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said the terrorists planned to use liquid explosives disguised as beverages and other common products and detonators disguised as electronic devices."
WTF! I want to see how the European community is going to react to the investigation and prosecution of all those involved in this demonic plot. As the war on terror escalates it's time that West engage in its form of Shariah -- I call for speedy the investigation, trial and execution of suspected terrorists. We have no time to afford rights and lengthy legal procedures to anyone with the slightest level of complicity in killing mass numbers of innocent people.
To process this latest development in the WOT, I decided to scroll through the comments on the Huffington Post. Here are a few take-aways:
-- The continuous string of failures, incompetence and questions as to credibility has turned this useless and redundant part of the Cabinet, the "boy that cried wolf" of our Executive Branch. What about the Miami Terrorists and other "plots" against America? What about GITMO? What about the waste and corruption in DHS? What about the truth about 9/11?
-- Thank GOD for President Bush and PM Tony Blair. Get back to sucking your thumb under your covers chicken shit.
-- Take a good look at yourselves.. its not even 5 hours before you blame this on Bush.next why dont you say that we should stop arresting thieves because arresting them only emboldens more to become theives, right?go Ned Lamont. (until real election day, that is)
-- These people wouldn't try to blow themselves up if Bush and Blair weren't such Nazis. It's all Bush and Blair. Let's exhume Chamberlain and we'll finally have some peace.
I agree that our government has become comically breathless with its color-coded terror alerts and flag waving every time they unfoil another terrorist plot. How the most well-funded, sophisticated intelligence organization in the world had no idea that terrorists were planning to level NY and Washington is beyond me. So for Chertoff to chime in now, with the anniversary of his deplorable handling of Hurricane Katrina just around the corner, is just convenient for him and unncessary for everyone else.
Ladies and gentlemen, we are sitting ducks. If you think for one second that the terror alerts and the press conferences out of Washington and London mean we are safe the next time we board a plane then you're out of your mind. I am thankful that we haven't seen another airliner attacked since 9-11 but I do not credit our current administration with this -- I call it luck. And until we find Osama and get out of Iraq and stop funding the war machine that is Israel, we will testing our luck everytime we choose to leave our homes.
