|O/T - I find the timing very suspicious, as it has been for the last 2-3 events reported. I know there are real threats all the time. We had them in 2000 with the Millenium threats - just as serious as now.|
This will never stop.
Treating it as a war does not work, IMO- as has been demonstrated so well since 2003 - as we went after the wrong bad actors.
There will always be things like this - just as we need police for crime, we will need responses to terrorism - but calling it a war doesn't make it a war.
I'm glad the authorities in the UK caught this. I have much more confidence in them than in the US officials. If the announcements came from US officials only - 2 days after major primary elections in the US - I would be very, very suspicious.
That's my 2 cents - let the experts do their work - but let's not scare everyone that we must hunker down and certainly don't question anyone in government - since we are "AT WAR" - I think this is a crock.
