Red Alert! Red Alert!


The great news today (title bar) is that a terrorist plot to smuggle homemade bombs on planes bound for the U.S. was thwarted by Scotland Yard. Hooray Scotland Yard!

George raised the "terror alert" level to red for those airports in the U.S. where the targeted flights would have landed. IF they had landed, a gesture reminiscent of closing the barn door after the horses have escaped, but still.

There IS an election about 3 months away, & we've seen the terror alert levels raised just prior to elections before, as the GOP believes it drives voters to their side of the corral. And there's no very great news for them to brag about domestically or abroad otherwise.

Not long afterwards Democrats & Republicans in Washington were heard arguing which party will protect Americans from terrorist threats best.

Demon Princess says if the November elections turn solely on that factor, let's put Scotland Yard in office. After all, the hero's laurels go to them, not anyone here. Maybe they'll bring socialized medicine with them, too. Hail fellow well met!

Hahaha! I'd give my left!

Thanks be to Scotland Yard (with Pakistan government). Reminds me that I once had a really cute Scottish boyfriend. Met him in an airport when our flights crossed. Next thing I know I'm in Scotland visiting. Black hair, blue eyes & that brogue! Yum!

Uh, where was I...

Well now that it is glaringly apparent that there are an endless variety of explosives, plots and unceasing tenacity to carry out terrorist threats, perhaps the U.S. can spend a few billion on the root cause of all our problems...our shitty foriegn diplomacy under the leadership of short-sighted administration.

...perhaps now that it is glaringly apparent that terrorist threats come in many inconvenient forms, we can work on the root cause of all these problems...our shitty foreign policy!
