Think About It!!
Remember all of the terrorist alerts with the color codes before the election in 2004?? Then after the election it all seemed to settle down. Now it appears that it is happening again, just before the mid-term elections. Things that make you say "Hmmmmmm."

1. You got that right.
If we don't learn from history, we are doomed to repeat it. Let's stop believing all the bullshit.

3. Yeah, but you know, we are doing a pre-emptive over reaction

We have no evidence for any conspiracy theory. We have some decidedly weak correlations which are mostly variants on -- Lamont won, London foils bomb plot.

And yet there are more than 2 dozen of these themed posts and scores of responses sliding down the major forums.

I believe many people got that haunting feeling in the back of their mind, but that's all we have so far, a haunting feeling in the back of our minds. Let's not go out of our minds over that.

4. Lamont won, London foils bomb plot
To think/believe the whole UK anti-terror efforts are so concerned about a dem primary in CT to launch a distraction for right-wing political reasons is why many on DU are the bunt of national media jokes.

5. post hoc ergo propter hoc
tr: After this, therefore because of this.

A logical fallacy which assumes or asserts that if one event happens after another, then the first must be the cause of the second.
