So I”m sure most of you have heard about the foiled terror plot from the U.K. and U.S.A.
I’ll be the first to say I guess I’m a little too jaded sometimes. I was never shy about saying that these raised levels of security and new Terrorist prevention organizations were just a huge waste of time and that there are 6 billion people on the planet so there’s no way to know who’s going to attack you and when. That these were just a tremendous waste of money and did nothing but scare the public.
I’ll shut my mouth today. In the last 2 months, 2 large terrorist plots have been foiled. One here in the Toronto area and this most recent one today involving these flights. I’ll tip my hat to whoever was tracking this and was able to stop it, as apparently it would have been much larger than 9/11 in terms of loss of life as they aimed to blow up flights heading to major airports in California, New York and Washington D.C.
I’ll say this. It’s a scarey fucking world and it’s not getting any more pleasant.
