    This kind of thing really puts me on edge. Sure, this is the EU and not America, but the perpetual abstract fear of the "Terrorist" is something all too easily exploited, and the people everywhere are in prime condition to accept such exploitment. This is just more evidence of that.

    It is this kind of stuff that scares me a lot more than any terrorist.

    Yes. If we keep reacting to the Ts, we won't have a country left, at least as America, the Land of the Free, was meant to be. Our govt - whether Dems or Repubs - will *not* pass up an chance to sieze more power from the people at every given opportunity in the name of public safety. Just this morning, I heard on a news/talk channel some of our officials deriding the Brits for releasing T suspects for lack of evidence.
    One govt official said, and I quote, "If we had the collective evidence that they (the Brits) had, we would have held him indefinately".
    Sorry, no link.

    Be afraid, folks...

    At some point we will figure out playing defense is a guaranteed loser. At some point we will have to take the fight directly to those who plan events. I do not consider actions in Iraq or parts east to qualify. They are merely theaters in the war. We have yet to target cells for destruction. We insist on capture for the supposed value of intelligence. The threat of violence and destruction does not hang over the heads of those who do evil. Their families are safe and secure. Their religion is regarded as a curiosity rather than a fountainhead. Their religious schools continue to pump out haters. And countries and organizations who make terror possible feel no pain nor experience the consequences of their actions. I guess an analogy would be to say the badguys are playing NFL smashmouth football and we've come to the game dress out for cricket. There seems to be a fundamental discrepency between the enemy's tactics and our response.

    We have yet to engage in the total war our enemies have evidently unleashed on us.

    Sorry Biker, I'm WAY past being "afraid" of the way things are going in this nation. I'm out shopping for fine black fabric and home silk screening kits.

    He's right. A quick fix won't do--only a slow, steady, and complete destruction of individual rights, in tandem with a complete consolidation of all power in government, will do.

    The problem he's talking about "resolving" isn't terrorism.

    It's freedom.
