    With this recent bust of the UK flight, it begins to make me seriously question if terrorists have switched tactics from trying to kill people to intentionally trying to be caught in plots that would kill people so as to make the rest of the country miserable through ever suffocating restrictions.

    Is this the new Jihad? Sacrifice for the terrorist "good" through means other than death?

    Is this terrorism via mounting inconvenience?


    Or, as a conspiracy theory, who thinks Colgate masterminded this whole thing to boost toothpaste sales? :p

    That is part of terrorism; once it has been established that a terrorist attack CAN be executed, the mere threat of an attack is enough to provide chaos.

    Nope.

    You get 72 virgins in Heaven for killing the enemy in battle. Not for merely annoying him.

    Personally I think it's a Gay, Jewish, Satanic, Atheist, Liberal, Neoconservative, Chinese, Japanese, Mexican, White, Alien, Corporate, Anarchist, plan to create a New World Order... or increase toothpaste sales. Either one works really.

    The US and UK agencies to uncover terrorist plots is to give us one more victorious battle. It shows that our government is indeed lessening the threat of terror attacks, and it makes the terrorists appear weaker and weaker with each spoiled plan.

    So, no, I dont think the terrorists are purposely creating plans to be foiled.

    63. This is a distraction
    Cindy Sheehan is destroying Rethuglikkans in Texas. She must be overshadowed. I would not be surprised to find out that the people arrested are all robots.

    It's two days after Joe got trounced. At least they gave us a day to celebrate.
