So while I’ve been taking my shoes and socks off, dumping my bottle of water, being felt up by a security perv, being chemically swabbed and having my underpants X-rayed at airports, all the “terrorists” had to do was to send their “bomb” via post.
Parcel bombs are not a new phenomena, all you have to say is unabomber and the americans will drop a load in their pants.
No parcel bomb has ever killed more than a couple of people – they do not cause mass casualties.
I accept that even two or three dead or injured people is too many, but the worldwide media coverage is completely disproportionate to the threat.
It goes without saying that media coverage was the real aim, timed to fit into America’s mid-term elections rather well? I thought that was George Bush’s tactic, pull out a Bin Laden mixtape everytime he was doing poorly in the ratings or the yank army were exposed for committing another war crime.
If bad publicity was the aim, to tar another Muslim country within the global war OF terror, to act as a pretext and to justify the covert war in Yemen blowing up to an open war, then doesn’t that rather widen the field of people who might have been behind it all?
For the last several weeks we’ve been told that the threat level was increasing. This message, we are told, was found on a “secret website” by an Israeli company who put it in a press release.
The group distributing these threats, SITE Intelligence, is contracted to the American government, is run by a former IDF member whose father was a Mossad terrorist. SITE Intelligence is the source of the Osama bin Laden tapes long proven to be, not only the wrong voice, but to resemble bin Laden so little as to have become a joke.
The easy and extremely detailed tip off from the Saudi security services is very interesting.
Not only did the Saudi secret service have the precise details of the bomb packages, the female alleged terrorist in Sanaa gave her phone number to the courier company. As all ultra dangerous highly trained Al-Qaidah operatives are obviously taught to do. Not withstanding the fact her identity was hijacked.
Now who do we know that hijacks identities for a weekend away in Dubai?
While the politicians are still living off the blank cheque from 9/11 by saying the bombs might have been detonated on the plane, except that the parcels changed cargo planes three times, it would be difficult to know when they were on a plane and where they were.
Contrary to the false reports disseminated by government agencies, there were no detonators in the toner bombs. They would therefore almost certainly have failed to go off, the mobile phone circuits they were attached too would not pick up a signal at altitude, even if they had a power source, which they didn’t.
As for the weird insistence by the government that the bombs were designed to go off on the plane, I just don’t believe it.
What is the evidence for this?
If the object was to bring down a plane, why possibly call attention to the packages by addressing them to Jewish organisations in Chicago?
No suspicions there then.
The only possible reason to insist that planes, not synagogues, were the target is to tap in to the public psyche which since 9/11 has been thoroughly indoctrinated with the airline bomb threat.
In other words, deliberate government fearmongering.
There is now an official insistence that the bombs were physically created by the same man who created the underpants bomb. Actually entirely possible, in that both attempts were useless, had no access to detonators, and didn’t kill anyone.
Somebody posted two parcel bombs.
Grave threat to western civilisation.
Our basic principles are at stake.
They hate our freedoms.
Biggest threat since World War 2.
Islam incompatible with democracy.
Yemen is the new Afghanistan.
Eternal vigilance needed.
More tanks required at airports.
Fighter plane escort for passenger planes is a rational answer to parcel bombs.
NATO may need to invade Somalia.
Torture in Saudi Arabia vindicated by this tip off.
Israel is our stoutest ally.
Will that do?
Rupert Murdoch when can I expect my cheque?
