HUGE Terrorist Plot Foiled!!!

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

Postby teddy ballgame » Thu Aug 10, 2006 12:11 pm

The thing I don't get, is these reports that the number of deaths would have been unprecedented, but weren't they going to blow the planes up over the atlantic or something? I don't think 10 planes would equal the number of deaths of the WTC. They're also reporting that Muslims in England are going to defend Islam before their country (England), and they're getting up in arms towards the US about this incident. 8-o

Things are becoming messy, fast. :-o

BTW Bush you are a freaking moron as usual


The terror plot arrests in London are a “stark reminder that this nation is at war with Islamic fascists,” President Bush says.


Nice way to lump in a religion with the threat.

Can't he just say we are at way with terrorist factions.

This is gonna piss people off.

A Boeing 777 can fit 550 passengers and some 20 crew members. Down 10 of those and that's close to 6,000 murdered. 911 death toll was under 3,000.
Let's go O's. Let's go Mets.

Trans-Atlantic flights normally carry 300+ passengers. The WTC death toll was just under 3000 IRC.

Security alert follows arrests
British and U.S. security agencies quickly moved to impose strict limits on carry-on items in the wake of Thursday's arrests, causing extended delays at airport security checkpoints. (Full story)

The British Airports Authority said no hand luggage would be allowed onto planes leaving British airports until further notice.


No mention of snakes being restricted. I don't think I'll feel safe enough to fly until I hear a definite "no snakes on a plane" rule from the airline security groups.


Same here.

A little off topic, but for some reason, I remembered this story I had at Heathrow about the inspections process there. I don't know if they do this in airports here, but at Heathrow they take all the Arab or Indian folks to the side and inspect them, while the other folks including myself weren't even screened. If I remembered right, the day before I was to take off from Heathrow, there was a terrorist arrest at Stansted and so, I have to admit I was a little nervous about my flight the next day. But yes, the British intelligence is top-notch.

It does piss me off that we don't screen passangers based on race. Maybee that sounds bad but it seems that most Terrorists aren't white dudes, black dudes, asians, or native american. Sorry we are free here but we do need to be careful.

Also this kinda unnerves me.

The metal detector and X-ray machines at airport security checkpoints cannot detect explosives. At many, but not all airport checkpoints, the TSA has deployed walkthrough “sniffer” or “puffer” machines that can detect explosives residue.
