bombs on planes?
« on: August 10, 2006, 06:14:12 AM »
Waking up to severe threat to Heathrow planes bound for US

This seems like the beginning of constant threats( ok 9/11 and 7/7 was, you know what I mean)

I just cant believe it- Seemsto be because of the whole Israel/Lebanon thing. I had a chill when I saw our Tony( good old Tony in the caribbean ::)) and Bush standing together, talking nonsense

Im sorry, this post is not meant to offend of start a bunfight- Im just sick of the way the world is going I really am

A sad scotslassie (who prays noone will get hurt again in terrorist attacks and we can go some way in acheiving some kind of understanding arond the world )

News breaks to say it was United Airlines who were to be hit again

I wonder how much  money they have lost recently.

I flew less than a week ago back from Africa, things were busy and security took ages to get back to UK- wonder if they knew then?

Hey while I have the same abhorrence to our our leaders, the Israeli part is just bs. Just like the whole q'ran ballyhoo. Muslims have no problem blowing each other up so why bent out of shape when another country doesn't like when it's citizens are kidnapped.

Btw in muslim law females can be married at age 9. Their prophet married a six year old girl. I believe this is called pedophilia. So long as religion ( any) is around this crap will go on. America has a growing fundamental christian group that is infiltrated everything from education to medicine to politics. They are buying their  bs ways into our gov't.
Here is an example of how tolerant America's good friend Saudi Arabia  is
http://www.saudia-online.com/Travelling%20to%20Saudi%20Arabia.htm


CUSTOMS REGULATIONS

A number of items are not allowed to be brought into the Kingdom due to religious reasons and local regulations. These include alcoholic beverages, pork and pork products, prohibited drugs and narcotics, firearms, explosives, edged weapons and pornographic materials.

Items and articles belonging to religions other than Islam are also prohibited. These may include Bibles, crucifixes, statues, carvings, items with religious symbols such as the Star of David, and others. Makkah and Medina hold special religious significance and only persons of the Islamic faith are allowed entry.
 They have no problem  blatently dissing other"s religious beliefs.
Not to mention how they treat gays. How did you feel on Iran's murder of that little girl? Tolerance is a 2 way street. Get rid of religion.

Islam will be the cause of the third world war. As you say Johnny: tolerance is a two way street and muslims are the least tolerant people in the world. Do you remember the demostration in London with hundreds of muslims saying we are the cancer of Islam?. What are they doing in London or the occidental world then? Why dont they go back to their countries to live in tents on the desert again? That is what they deserve.
The catholic Kings did very well in Spain when they got rid of all the muslims.

The little whackjob in Iran told us this would happen soon. Iran and Syria are up to their eyeballs in all of this,bet on it.  Hezbollah is Syria and Iran. Syria and Iran get their weapons from Russia and China. WWIII is in progress.
How anyone equate right wing Christians to these madmen is beyond me. There is no comparison. These are people who use their own children as weapon delivery systems.
This threat will not end till good Muslims rise up and stop the terrorists. It must be made abundantly clear to Muslims around the world that this is their problem too and they must help solve it by declaring war on those who use the Muslim religion as their Trojan horse.
Do I hear anyone complaining this morning about eavesdropping on telephone calls from or to the US with known foreign terrorists?

Jack if I remember my history the first crusades used- children! I know when you are in the epicentre ( Texas ) of this crap it is hard to believe there are other realities.

When people  are told they can't get legal medicines because the doctor or pharmacist doesn't believe in it, then I equate them with those whackjobs.
When American museums show exhibitions of dinosaurs and man co existing - then I equate it.
When christian tv says that people lived longer because they were inbred, then I equate it.
When Christians protest military funerals then I equate it.
When people are told they have no right to marry then I equate it.
When Bush was elected the last time -
How many more examples shall I give?

Can I just say I am in no way against Islam as a religion- I come from scotland where people are beaten up, or killed in some cases, because they support a catholic or protestant football team ffs

Religion is the main player in this, but I dont think it is Islams fault. Its the extremism where people think it is right to do honour killings and suicide bomb places so they go to heaven and become martyrs. They are the sick ones, not the millions of other muslims who are actually tolerant and peaceful

I just cant abide our PM siding with wacko bush and geting involved, I hate my country being involved in all of this. I knew all this would happen as soon as Blair decided he wanted to start bombing Iraq 4 years ago

Anyway, I dont like to see muslims being attacked, because its a select few. Also places like Iran and Syria have severe regimes, yes, but launching attacks on them and saying you will take military action against them will only add flames to the fire- I just wonder what can be done

And as others say, I often wonder will Islam become the reason for the next World War?

But Jakey, I thought you, Dubya and the rest of the hawks in the US had risen up to stop the terrorists! Or was that just crazy talk?

johny, I really don't know what to say. You equate arab muslim children strapped with bombs to our soldiers? You equate muslim terrorists with right wing christians?  Maybe we should kill ourselves? Lets ban religion is the US, that will stop the muslim terrorists.

Scotlassie, when will you people stop blaming Bush,christians, and the US for muslim terrorists? We have been appeasing these scoundrels since Reagan ran from Beirut. They hate us because we don't use our power to destroy them. They hate us because we exist. They hate us because we appease.
Bush has tried to bring democracy to the middle east hoping that one state would create a domino effect toppling all the dictatorships, who finance the system that creates the terrorists because having the US as a bogeyman keeps the masses in line. It was a noble but stupid plan.
Mid east democracy in not worth one US life. If you go to war go to destroy your enemy and win. If you aren't willing to do your enemy  one more than he will do you, don't go to war.

There is no reason for Muslim terrorism. We are not doing anything wrong to deserve terrorist attacks. If we start blaming ourselves, terrorism will win the battle. The only bad people here are the terrorists. Stop blaming America, stop blaming Bush or Blair. Don´t make the mistakes the foolish Spanish president is making every day finding excuses and justifications for terrorists attacks. This is like when a child abuser makes the child feel guilty.

Matty, W appeases the terrorists with his attempt to bring democracy to the middle east. I was for the war because I thought we were going in to destroy our enemy not bring democracy to them. We led the horse to water, it ain't drinking.  Bush should have attacked Syria and Iran two years ago, not in attempt to bring democracy to them but to crush them. Syria and Iran are waging war on Israel now via Hezbollah. Its really difficult to argue this with people who think we are the bad guys.

Sorry I have never cricitised christianity in fact I made it clear I dont blame religion per se

What I do criticise is Blair and Bush- who are all out for money, and for fame, and for their own agendas. They are not fighting these wars for us, or for the world they want themselves to be remembered for doing " good"- what they perceive as good. The fact that so many people in our countries are christian and jewish mean they have to play into their hands, blaming the big bad muslim people.

Now I dont know a huge amount about politics- but what I do know is that countries in the middle east are minted, and our countries want a share of it. Hence gulf war etc etc. Im not so naive to think that bush and blair are all about stopping terrorism and stopping attrocities- although I hope they dont actually want this- but if they DO want to stop it they have go to rethink the way they interact with muslim society- whether it is right or wrong, I dont think anyone can say. But I do know that these things are , for a large part, down to the two of them

Well why not Jakey? Are not US soldiers on trial at the moment for the rape and murder of an Iraqi girl? In her own house? As for killing yourselves, it's an option, but let's put it on the back burner.

For now.

As for banning religion, I'm not sure. It's a useful tool of social control.

Scotlassie, when will you people stop blaming Bush,christians, and the US for muslim terrorists? We have been appeasing these scoundrels since Reagan ran from Beirut. They hate us because we don't use our power to destroy them. They hate us because we exist. They hate us because we appease.


No Jakey, they hate us (remember Australia and the UK are slavish members of the Coalition Witless) because we seek to impose our will on them. They're not entirely sure why we think we're better.

Bush has tried to bring democracy to the middle east hoping that one state would create a domino effect toppling all the dictatorships, who finance the system that creates the terrorists because having the US as a bogeyman keeps the masses in line. It was a noble but stupid plan.


As usual Jakey, you're a sterling representative of your alignment. Rush would be proud. This has to be one of the greatest non-sequiturs I've ever encountered.

Mid east democracy in not worth one US life. If you go to war go to destroy your enemy and win. If you aren't willing to do your enemy  one more than he will do you, don't go to war.

Yup. Lyndie England is worth more than a mere arab. She couldn't read, but at least she could vote.

Jakey, the US Armed Forces isn't a collective of the proudest and bravest in the world, it's just a massive social welfare programme. It's the device by which your government disposes of the stupid, poor and criminal minded. Cannon fodder babe. That's what they are, and I include the Marines in that. At least if Jose or Elijah has his brains spread across the thankless plains of a foreign land, he won't be waving a piece in your face at WalMart or languishing on death row.

And his parents will get a neat medal and nice new flag.

lassie, Syria and Iran are attacking Israel. Israel is defending itself. Its too late to argue about whether Israel should be a state, that horse is out of the barn. Israel is a legitimate state and it is defending itself. They are at war. Ceasefires only enable Iran and Syria to more troops and arms into Lebanon.
I predict by the end of the day there will be blogs in the US with stories of how todays events in London were really hatched by Rove and Bush to make the Dems look like idiots for opposing surveillance of US/Overseas communications.

I dont agree with either side tbh Jack- I think both are as bad as each other. Unfortunately Bush especially likes to make out the " big bad men" are trying to stop HIS views on what the world should be like- have you noticed in press conferences its all about him?

He loves himself, he wants noterioty, he wants everyone to think and act like him, unfortunately he has got many people who do.

When he speaks he reminds me of a little kid in a playground- But miss, they are picking on me, the big baddies, they are being nasty to me

I cant stand it, sorry- it has nothing to do with his religion, even his voice, its just what he does. He is a manipulating idiot of the highest order.

If our military is just a collection ground for the homeless and hopless, why did my nephew just turn down a 6 figure job on Wall Street to join the Army?  Personally, I think he is crazy. Why is my niece, summa cum laude from an Ivy league school, in her 8th year in the navy.

Bingo Jake...Lord knows this administration has never lied to us before. Neocons are jumping up and down  thanking Allah.

Yesterday Whitehouse spokesman Tony Snow ( Fox News fame ) stated voting for democrats would lead to another 9/11.

Why did they join Jakey? Because they chose to join. I don't recall there being a draft in this. If your niece and nephew don't want to get their heads blown off by the infidel, probably they should have used their sparkling degrees to secure positions as cubicle monkeys with one of America's finer corporate employers.

As I recall, Dubya was a Skull and Bones man. The fucker can barely read and yet he got into Yale, so please save me the "Ivy League summa cum laude" crap. Frankly, if your nephew turned down a six figure job on Wall Street to eat lead in a foreign land for Dick Cheney I suspect academic achievement in the US is based on something other than merit.

Matt,

Nah, I didn't feel I got whopped as you call it in the other thread.  I do not look at each discussion in here as some game in which there is a winner and a loser.  And even if I was the only person in the forum who believed in my God or my country, I would stand firm and would not feel I lost.  You have some really good things to say at times, but more often than not you resort to attacking others on a personal level, another's faith, Jack's family, etc.  That just doesn't seem worth it so you can sign-off each day feeling you whopped someone half way around the world with your mental prowess.

Good for you kid! A positive outlook is a beneficial thing and all that.

When all else is lost, you can rely on the Manifest Destiny. I bet that's what Dubya whispers to Laura at night. Or is it Condi? Nah, it'd be Laura - miscegenation and all. You know what they say, Connecticut born, but Texas bred.

You have some really good things to say at times, but more often than not you resort to attacking others on a personal level, another's faith, Jack's family, etc.


Yeah, that's the way, you've busted me. I'm just a vulnerable, damaged heart beating under a hard exterior. It's all a show. I need someone to love me. Could it be you who reaches out to me? God knows, I can't resist a puppy dog.

Nevertheless, it wasn't me who brought Jakey's family (or his faith for what that's worth) into play. If you cleaned the patriotic crud out of your teary eyes and read this thread, you'd see it was Jake (Jack) who did that. But details and the facts were never your strong point were they Biggums? That's what screwed you in the Gay Christian thread.

That just doesn't seem worth it so you can sign-off each day feeling you whopped someone half way around the world with your mental prowess.

Ouch! That stung! Such wisdom should be on a desk calendar.

Good Lord,

how did this degenerate from news about a united attack using liquid bombs to attacking religion and those who beliefs?  WTH is wrong with ya'll?  >:(

Seems to me some of you either forgot (or aren't old enough) to remember Viet Nam and how things happened there (kids, women with grenades/bombs, our guys attacking civilians).

War, "police actions" or whatever suxors for all concerned (except for those who cause it).

There are generally fanatics on both side (anyone here old enough to remember the Cold War?).

Yeah, you're right Clarke, somewhere along the line we all forgot about the love. Shame on us. Still, I don't think you have to resort to blasphemy to make your point. Cuss words make the Baby Jesus cry and all that.

I wasn't there, but I'll hazard a guess. America stepped in to clean up the mistakes of a failed european empire. Millions of Vietnamese died. As a result hundreds of thousands of angry American veterans claim benefits and abuse Vicodin. Were you one of them?

It's a mad world.

Ummm, France was there first in the 50's to assist keeping back Communist forces in China (supplied by Russia) from invading.  Then it got turned over to the U.S.A. before the 60's after France took some serious butt-whippings.

I wasn't "one of them" but I knew many who were, and came back to a very hostile America (thank you Jane Fonda  :P ).  Many of them were also messed up psycologically from what they either went thru and/or saw.  It was a messed up situation for all concerned, us and the Vietnamese.  We left them with an extremely hostile leadership who was very willing to commit to what Mao had done in his own country.  Even tho' some refer to it as the Viet Nam War, it never was a "war".  More like a "Police Action" or "Conflict", but "war" was never declared.

sorry 'bout the "cussing", didn't know 7734 was a cussword  :o  ;D

And what happend to the jews living in Spain and Portugal around the time that "The same kings that discovered America sent the muslims back to where they belonged" ?

By the way, as I recall from history lessons that during the Moorish occupation the arabs lived on reasonable foot alongside with the jews on the Iberian peninsula.

So tell me, who were the ones not showing respect or not being tollerant ?

Yeah well you tell that to the Vietnamese who were napalmed, or the Vietnam Veterans who to this day suffer from post traumatic stress disorder.

"Oh really? It was a police action and not a war? I guess I should stop drinking diesel from the pump and bashing my wife!"

Because legal niceities (ie 'police action' not 'war') make it all better.

For the record the only other country to join America in the "police action" was my country.

I hate the way people have the view that all muslims are terrorists it's rubbish.  Just look at it from an iraqi's point of view an estimated 40,000 civilian deaths with other sources suggesting as many as 100,000 and still rising at a rapid rate do you expect them to thank America and the UK for that?  Hearing stories like this doesnt help either:

Just read this from the David Byrne site- made me think of this thread
http://journal.davidbyrne.com/


8.2.06: American Madrassas
Saw a screening of a documentary called Jesus Camp. It focuses on a woman preacher (Becky Fischer) who indoctrinates children in a summer camp in North Dakota. Right wing political agendas and slogans are mixed with born again rituals that end with most of the kids in tears. of release and joy, they would claim — the children are not physically abused. The kids are around 9 or 10 years old, recruited from various churches, and are pliant willing receptacles. They are instructed that evolution is being forced upon us by evil Godless secular humanists, that abortion must be stopped at all costs, that we must form an “army” to defeat the Godless influences, that we must band together to insure that the right judges and politicians get into the courts and office and that global warming is a lie. (This last one is a puzzle — how did accepting the evidence for climate change and global warming become anti-Jesus? Did someone simply conflate all corporate agendas with Jesus and God and these folks accept that? Would Jesus drive an SUV? Is every conclusion responsible scientists make now suspect?)
Awareness of the rest of the world is curtailed — one can only view or read that which agrees with the agenda.
Naturally, the kids being so young, there is no questioning of any kind — they simply accept what grownups Fischer and the others say — they get pumped up, agitated, they memorize right wing and Jesus slogans and shout them back obediently. They become part of a support group — a warm, safe, comfortable feeling for anyone, for any social animal, for you and me. No one strays or gets out of line even the slightest bit. (More on peer pressure later.)
There were some perfect sound bites — at one point Pastor Fischer instructs the little ones that they should be willing to die for Christ, and the little ones obediently agree. She may even use the word martyr, which has a shocking echo in the Middle East. I can see future suicide bombers for Jesus — the next step will be learning to fly planes into buildings. Of course, the grownups would say, “Oh no, we’re not like them” — but they admit that the principal difference is simply that “We’re right.”
In another scene a cardboard cutout of George W. Bush, with his trademark smirking smile, is brought out and the children are urged to identify — many of the little ones come forward and reverently touch his cardboard hands.
I kept saying to myself, “O.K., these are the Christian version of the Madrassas (those Islamic religious instructional schools in Pakistan and elsewhere, often financed by Saudi oil money)...so both sides are pretty much equally sick, there’s a balance." (Although it must be said the Madrassas provide some regular education and literacy where no other option is available, they do community work that is non-religious...and they take in aimless troubled youth.)
They want to turn the U.S. into the "Christian" version of Iran or Saudi Arabia. A theocracy. The separation between church and state, already shaky with Bush in charge, is under full frontal assault by this bunch — and they are well organized, too. The megachurches tell their parishioners who to vote for, what judges to support, letters to write, and where they should stand on the issues. Well, we all do this to some extent — even in casual chats with friends we attempt to deduce and arrive at a consensus of opinion; a sloppy democratic give-and-take on any number of subjects often gives way to agreement. But this is top-down messaging — no discussion allowed. There’s a scene in the Colorado Springs megachurch run by the Preacher who talks with Bush once a week — same deal as with the kids, only most of the attendees are pliant adults.
What is it about Colorado Springs? Littleton is right next door to these megachurches. I think they are 2 sides to the same coin. One breeds the other. The dissatisfaction and alienation that leads folks to join this weird non-“Christian” Christianity (much the same has been said about fundamentalist Islamic groups, that they are a perversion of the Islam of the Prophet) leads down a road to both Littleton and Colorado Springs — and in the sense that they allow the mind to be pleasantly emptied, they are identical.
The documentary juxtaposes scenes of an Air America radio call-in guy, a former preacher himself — who rants against this version of Christianity. These scenes seemed almost unnecessary, as to many of us in the audience Becky was pretty much indicting herself, though she wouldn’t see it that way. But they did give some relief from the scary view of the heartland as harboring an army in formation. Zombies from the wheat fields.
Sad, as the heartland and areas untouched by the big city sicknesses are also the home of much practical down-to-earth wisdom. Wisdom borne of the land and of experience, unsullied by the trendy political and ethical philosophies that periodically sweep the urban jungles.
When one sees religion perverted — in the U.S. or in Israel, Pakistan, Afghanistan or India, one wonders if the spiritual seeds, planted by visionaries and enlightened prophets like Jesus, Mohammed, Marx and others, are just too volatile for large societies to deal with. One asks if religious visions are better off kept as a personal thing, or at least confined to a small group — otherwise the death and destruction sown by and in the name of religions more or less balances out their moral and personal virtues (which are many.)

matty, our entire military is volunteer,we have no draft.
Many young americans choose to serve in the military,and many have college degrees.Some join out of a sense of duty, some join cause you retire after 30years with a great pension, some join cause its a way to move up, some join cause its their only opportunity. Many of these people have a level of responsibility in their 20s in the military that an individual would work 30 years to attain in the corporate world.
My niece was  head engineer on an Aegis Cruiser. She ran the ship. She was in the first attack group on Iraq and spent 18 months there. She was also one of the first US service people delivering supplies to the victims of the tsunami. Very inspiring stuff. S he is attending law school now while working in the Pentagon.
My nephew will be special forces. I have no idea where he will be eating. His father was navy and his father was navy. They are buried in Arlington. Its what they do. I dont know why they do,but I sure am glad they do.
I agree that W sounds like a retard, but remember he had a higher grade average than Algore.

I may get flamed for this, but to my thinking both sides of this conflict are in the wrong. Both are doing evil and it matters not to me who threw the first stone.

Perpetuating killing is not justifiable in my mind, and that's what this is.

Besides, putting all things into realistic perspective there’s not a thing I can do to stop any of it.



Now where did I put that magic wand . . .

so because we have been indoctrinated into Christianity  we are supposed to root for people who cheer at the death of Mathew Shepard, protest NY C firemen etc. Christians can be juust as bad, look at what they did in Salem.

Salem?? Are you on drugs? Let me ask you this, if you are gay, would you rather live in the US or in a muslim mid east country?  Case Closed.
It has nothing to do with Christianity. The muslim terrorists want us dead because our way of life threatens their way of life.  Free markets and technology are spreading the seeds and hope of freedom through out the dictatorships of the mid east, the dictators only hope to hold their power is to destroy us. Of course if they destroy us they will have no one to buy their oil and they will collapse anyways.  The terrorists do not hate us because we are a "christian" country, they hate us because we exist. There is nothing you can do about it, its kill or be killed.

Grasshopper, you don´t know much about Spanish history.
About the established myth of three different religions living peacefully I should say that the relationship between Spain and Islam was of enormous tension and full of violence and wars. In the VIII century, the invasion of Spain by the Muslims ended the most rich culture in Occident and turned Spaniards into second class citizens in their own country, they were slaves of the Muslims or were exiled. During the following centuries (under the Muslim occupation) the Iberian peninsula was the scenery of a fight for the national freedom between the north, willing to recover the national unity against the Muslim occupants that were unable to create a stable political order and suffering continuous northafrican invasions.
Nowadays, Islam is a big threaten for Spain: immigration, terrorism (192 dead on the trains two years ago) or the Moroccan demands of certain Spanish cities.
Anyway the only bad guys here are the terrorist, and trying to find a justification is what they want, and proves our weaknes to them. We are letting win the battle because we feel guilty.
Muslism find the Saria the only good way of ruling the world and the main purpose of Islam is to extend all over the world killing if necessary.
In the following picture the Muslims surrender to the Catholic Kings: Isabel & Fernando.
