We should profile every politician and strip search them.

Wait, no, thats a bad idea. I do not want to see these guys naked.

Ok, scratch that. Hmmm... there has got to be a better solution that does not involve me vomiting...

The idea of racial profiling to such an intensity is scary. The idea of stripping, no pun intended, our civil rights away so quickly is even scarier yet.


Nono, not our civil rights, their civil rights.

I think this general is the first guy to speak sense in a long time. If this happens and you're a young Muslim male wanting to fly on a plane? too bad, suck it up, blame it on those terrorist idiots, not on people trying to protect themselves.

What about White Muslims, Asian Muslims, or any other different kind of Muslim. Also how do we go about determining what religion is which? Are we going to have to get ID cards now declaring our faith and the ones that don't say Muslim get walk right through. So are we going to become a free religious nation... except for Muslims? Quite frankly sounds like a horrible idea from a corrupt evil fossil trying to push more military industrial complex might down our throats.

Also why is it so in fashion to blow up a plane? Why can't a terrorist drive a city bus full of C4 into a building? If you people would actually think about these things, you'd realize how stupid they are.

So what's your solution, just hope that nobody else tries to blow up a plane?

Do like the Israelis, accept that *SNIP* going to happen, get the *SNIP* when it does, and keep living our life without the paranoia and fear mongering.

I mean honestly how often does a plane blow up? Yes it's tragic and horrible but it happens so rarely. Plus no matter what you do someone can figure out a way around it. By the way, have you been through Airport Security? You honestly think these people are going to stop a sinister evil genius plot? Trust if the flow of coc aine and heroin keeps getting in, I'm sure a motivated terrorist could find a way to do his evil deeds.

I say accept that *SNIP* is going to happen and move on.

Plus what's funny is a lot of you are crying and worrying about security and aren't alarmed that a connected military general and a prime member of TPTB basically just threatened us the people.

Mod Edit: Easy on the swears. Cheers -alien

Honestly, the General has no idea what he is talking about. While there is clearly a threat from the Islamic Extremists who seek to force the rest of the world to convert to Islam, when the general suggest we profile for "Muslims," he illustrates his ignorance.

How exactly does one visually spot a, "Muslim?" Did he happen to specify the criteria to be used? I'm curious to know the criteria he would use to spot all of the muslims?

Guys like him go nothing to address the issue. He is just a blithering old fool.

You might want to do some research on El-al's security procedures. They hardly accept, as you so eloquently put it, "that #s going to happen."

Research is your friend. The thing called the internet is full of information.

LOL

Except in this case the theoretical people would already be dead, having blown up a plane.

And accept that stuff happens? It's true stuff does, that's a fine attitude to have when you're talking about things happening beyond your control. But things you can prevent? Then it's a bad attitude.

Not that often thankfully, we have the intelligence services, and to a much lesser extent airport security to thank for that.


Plus what's funny is a lot of you are crying and worrying about security and aren't alarmed that a connected military general and a prime member of TPTB basically just threatened us the people.


Yes it's all a sinister plot to take our rights away. I must remember to worship my neo statue later.

I have to fly on planes, and the full body scanners bother me a hell of a lot, I really resent the fact that I have to put up with that all because of some idiotic suicidal Muslims.

We have to face it, Muslims want to blow up planes and do all kinds of unreasonable stuff. It's about time we actually targetted the people who are the problem here instead of making the whole world suffer for the things they have done.

I'm totally against fascist measures that our governments are putting into effect because of the overinflated threat of terrosism, yes it's a relatively tiny threat compared to lung cancer. But this particular measure I support, purely because it is targetted AT THE CAUSE and not at people in general.

If you have a problem and you know who's causing it, you go after those people, thats all there is to it. You dont wait around and when they blow up a plane, you just shrug and say "oh well stuff happens"

My point is that you were way off base on how Israel views terror threats. That is what we are discussing in this thread isn't it?

Is there a real, substantiated threat of a US airliner being downed? Is there true terrorist chatter hinting to such a disaster? Is this just further fear-mongering?


No matter what the answer to the other questions, yes, it is definitely fear mongering.

Giving up freedoms we take for granted, ie not having to be strip searched when we haven't even been convicted of anything, is only helping terrorists win their supposed war against our liberties.

To me it seems the only people that really hate our freedoms and liberties are the government.

That guy was one of the most ignorant and I honestly believe halfway mentally incapable person I have ever seen. How did they let him on the air? Are they serious?

This guy really thinks we will give up our personal freedoms for security?

Ohh wait nevermind Americans already are, and they do not care, maybe they will when they are gone and they only have sticks and stones to throw at the tyrants.

I am not a Muslim, but I can put myself in their shoes. Imagine traveling to the middle east and being strip searched because you were a Christian....

I say this guy gets put on a watch list because he seems more like an Extremist to me more so than the average Muslim. Makes me sick to think this beautiful country that I love so dearly and I so proudly served in the service has come to this..... When will it end? When tell me? When?? This country is not going to hell in a handbasket, it is going to hell in the hands of irresponsible bureaucrats and politicians.

Out of curiosity, how many muslims in America do you think are team players. More specifically, which team?


No true Muslim can in good conscience support America or any Western Judeo-christian based civilization. Their book calls for the conversion or the death of infidels. There is no middle ground. Jihad demands blood and always has throughout muslim history.

The multi-culturists and the patsies screaming racism and civil rights etc., are just useful idiots for the jihadists. Back during WWII when men still had a pair, we did oh so uncivilized things like fire bomb Dresden and nuke Hiroshima. However a far worse fate was planned for us by our enemies and our leaders knew it. The Japanese were close to dispersing radiological bombs over western America, and Hitler had his plans for the Jews and the colored folks. It required the utmost courage and determination to defeat these monsters.

Today we utterly fail to see that we face a much more dangerous and in fact more evil foe. In sharia law it is perfectly legal to rape and kill non-believers who are treated at best as property. The traditions of the mahdi suggest that their future leader will no longer even allow the luxury of nonbelievers to exist in Muslim lands. The mass murderers are coming, what do you intend to do about it? Shuffle off quietly to the camps? Show them your necks to make it easier for them to cut off your head?

The only difference between that man and a terrorist, is about 5,000 miles.

SO when an extremist scumbag purposely attempts to blow up an airliner carrying children, there are no innocents?

[*SNIP*]

(more snip)


I too find it hilarious anyone is shocked when angry people seek revenge for US actions and try to inflict damage with the tools they have.

Millions of innocent people too far to harm the US even if they wanted too have suffered unimaginable horror based on official united states govt lies...and what?, it's supposed to be all good because our colored cloth on a stick is cooler than theirs? We're not slaughtering mid east dogs, these are an ancient very proud people who had laws & courts 1000s of years before the founding fathers were sperm. They're also people like you and I who just want to eek out a reasonably happy existence... but the empire gets in their way and pisses them off.

US sanctions, wars, occupations, drones, troops & bombs kill their children & loved ones by the dozens, so guess what?.. that makes YOUR children & loved ones a target for revenge.. which is best served cold... "all is fair in love and war", eye for an eye, kid for a kid, cruelty begets cruelty, life sucks and then you die.

Thank the US government for making you & I targets of angry strangers.. it's nothing personal, unless you actually believe random dudes 6,000+ miles away wake up hating you personally.. because you enjoy the freedom to watch porn, vote, and trash talk the govt.. lol pleeeeze...

Yes, there are people who would not hesitate to blow your plane.. with your kids & loved ones... into pablum bit fish food .. maybe as payback for having their kids and loved ones droned to death by a CIA joystick jockey? or JDAM?... 2 wars?, occupations? Payback just part of war man, nothing new.

Has anyone ever considered the possibility there is a conspiracy to destroy the airline industry? If they DO start strip-searching people, or making you wait six hours to go on a plane, how many people are really gonna keep flying?

Maybe they want to keep people inside their borders for some reason? hmmmmm.

I find it hilarious when people have a complete lack of understanding as to the goal of Islamic Fundamentalists. It is a goal they have clearly laid out and stated for all to see.

One might want to venture beyond conspiracy message boards to form opinions.

The murdering scum do thank you for apologizing for their actions though. You are very useful to their cause.

Well yes, if the US are implementing more efficient systems to catch terrorists, then they'll strike before they're in place, and that could be in the next 3 months. It's a reasonable analysis to say it's likely, but I doubt anyone is promising it will happen.
