I just raised my personel threat level to ORANGE
Now my ORANGE is 2 levels above PINKISH/RED
PINKISH/RED is never good and is just 4 levels below the dreaded BLACK LEVEL7
BLACK LEVEL7 is the top or worst color in my personal color threat-o-meter. It is 15 levels above, or worse than the bottom color which is LAVENDAR.
LAVENDAR is good - I feel good when I am at LAVENDAR, but of course I always end up rasing it to OFF WHITE before a LAVENDAR day is done.
What color was it again?

I just got this level alert via MI5 aswell, Hmm makes you wonder with all the little incidents at airports around the world lately and many wondering if all the things going on right now are just "The stage being set" so to speak...
Interesting days ahead, One i do hope though goes without incident.

My advice to the UK is don't buy into this whole terrorism thing like the US did. Don't let your media influence you like what happened here.

I couldn't care less what the threat level is - I trust the authorities to be working hard at stopping any threat, whether real or potential, 24/7. It is why I pay my taxes.
So what if the level if Deep Red? Just WTF am I supposed to do about it?
Terrorists - you try and kill me at your own risk. I *WILL* fight back.
Other than that, just another day at the office for me.

This system helps police and other law enforcement agencies decide how to allocate staff.
An official from the Department of Homeland Security told Sky News the increased threat level brings the UK in line with the US in terms of airport security measures.

Whenever there is heat on the ruling elite, as is the case of the Iraq war evidence investigation, this kind of thing happens. Just another way of distracting the masses from something truly important.
Same thing happened in the US with those threat level increases. They are now almost a tip off that something is going on NOT related to terrorism.

Having lived through the worst of The Troubles here in Northern Ireland I can't help but feel a sense of schadenfreude.
The British and Americans encouraged both sides here to murder and cause the public great fear.
What goes round comes round!
