As most of you probably know by now, earlier today, a man has attempted to detonate explosives on board of an AA 767 in flight from CDG to MIA (flight # 63). The man was luckily subdued by F/A's and pax who were alerted by a sulphur smell coming from the matches that he was using to try and ignite explosives hidden in his shoes. The bastards are getting even more creative. The one thing we can be sure of right now is that the timing, about 48 hours before Christmas Eve, was deffinetely not a coincidence. Nice try. Following the events of 9/11, I wouldn't wanna be that stupid bastard when the pax got their hands on him!
So, who is our mistery man? Well, he had a newly issues British passport (probably fake), which says his name is "Richard Ried". Yeah, right. Deffinetely a Mossad agent, as many of our "open-minded" members will soon claim. Most of us know better. So who is he? Part of OBL's great conspiracy that began with the 9/11? An opportunist? At least they got him alive this time.
You have to admit that the US government did warn the public of possible attacks in this period of time. Hopefuly this will show people that all the crazy security measures are worthless if the US doesn't invest more time and money into it's intelligence agencies and its armed forces. Being more agressive in fighting terror is also necessary. Too bad Ronald Reagan couldn't see this far ahead 15-20 years ago, eh? Guess what? The US had all this crap coming. And no, I'm not talking about it's foreign policies, I'm talking about its leadership not being agressive enough in the past, a few cruise missiles a couple days after a terrorist attack is not fighting terrorism. I won't blame it all on the Clinton administration, though. They were just the people who happened to be there. A Republican woudn't have done anything differently. Let's face it, without the 9/11, America's approach would have never changed.
So, for now, merry Christmas everybody! Enjoy being with your loved ones, and make sure you're thankful for all the wonderful things you've got.
P.S. Screw you, terrorists!
