With the anniversary of Osama bin Laden's death looming, American and European authorities told ABC News today that they fear al Qaeda may soon try to explode U.S.-bound aircraft with explosives hidden inside the bodies of terrorists.
As a result, security at several airports in the U.K. and elsewhere in Europe and the Middle East has been substantially stepped up, with a focus on U.S. carriers.

I like when people say conspiracy theorists or alternative news junkies are "too paranoid" and need to get a life, etc.
The level of paranoia in "normal society" and within the governments of the west has gone to dangerous levels. The entire United States is just a festering pit of manufactured fear that is spreading like a disease. I once thought that it was a modest assembly of "elite" that orchestrates all of this.. but now I'm not so sure. I believe there are still some string pullers out there, but it seems like everyone is just crippled with paranoia.
Frequent flyers generally lead dangerous lifestyles before they ever get on a plane anyway.. They're still groggy from "induced zombie sleep" from Ambien, hocked up on an overdose of caffeine in the morning, the pairing of which causes insanity in itself. (If it's Monday, they're hungover from binge drinking last night.) They get in their rickety petrol bomb on wheels, which they do not perform maintenance on, driving 70-85mph next to other zombies on a high-traffic death track, one hand on the wheel while they eat whatever heart-clogging greasy slop they bought on the road, and one eye on their text-o-matic slave device.
Then they get in line at the TSA sexual-molestation conveyor belt, get dosed with a year's worth of radiation in one second, then sit on a plane filled to the brim with filth, disease and mental vacuums. THEN THIS IS WHEN THEY GET "CONCERNED" FOR THEIR SAFETY.
GO FLOG YOURSELF, WHOEVER YOU ARE. If it's possible to shove your head up your ass any further than it already is, then please do so.edit on 30-4-2012 by SyphonX because: (no reason given)
