Strange as it may seem, a couple of weeks ago as I ruminated on Obama’s broken promise to bring the troops home, his attempt to out-warmonger the Bush administration and his plummeting popularity, I thought to myself: “ya know, what that guy (or rather the disgruntled US public) needs is a good old fashioned ‘Muslim terror attack’. Preferably one that includes a ranting ‘terrorist’ message about Afghanistan and ‘slaughtering infidels’. That’ll soon silence the rabble and get them behind Obama’s Afghan surge!”
And so it was that, as I sipped my eggnog on Christmas day, I was shockingly unsurprised to read the headlines about an ‘underwear bomb’ (as shown above).
To adequately address the recent airline “terror attack” in Detroit and the airborne terror attacks in Yemen we must delve into the topsy turvey world of the ‘war on terror’, where black is white, up is down, and shady Middle Eastern-looking men and your knickers share equal rating on the US DHS threat-o-meter. In short, it’s no easy task. So first of all, let me say a few words about airports and the old and new airport “security measures”.
