TERRA! TERRA! TERRA! Happy election season everybody!
Welcome to our first code "orange" alert. It's election year again so we'll be seeing more of these. Remember last time. Just remember, THE ONLY THING YOU HAVE TO FEAR IS FEAR ITSELF. Don't let the bastards ruin your day. Carry on my fearless ones....

1. Nobody seems to be freaking out over here.
It's seen as a giant pain in the ass more than anything else.

2. Yeah, but someone's going to have to get toasted somewhere
to emphasize the point.

4. I was just listing to CNN on XM and the reporter seemed kind of
upset while talking with airline travelers at Heathrow... "It sounds really calm there..." Passenger, "It is..."


Damn. No story here. No chance to whip up fear. I truly think it is getting so damned transparent that people are sick of it...


...except for the one guy who kept referring to "These dastardly folks..."

9. Well, that's Britain for you.
Terrorism isn't anything new here, at least not the way it is in the states. I've noticed that the fearmongering tactics so effective in the US seem to have little or no traction here. Don't expect Tony's poll numbers to go anywhere as a result of this, either.

10. More and more Americans are catching on as well.
Although not as many as I'd like. You Brits are far ahead of us when it comes to bullshit detection. We Yanks are just starting to catch on. Keep leading the way, alright? ;)

11. I'm an American, actually.
Just giving my perspective as someone who has lived under both Bush and Blair. :)

6. Isn't OBLs next tape overdue?
Or will they wait until the '08 elections for that?

8. HEY CNN, FAUX!!
And all the others (you know who you are).

Your credibility is so destroyed that unless you back-up with absolute proof anything you say. I don't believe one word that comes out of your mouths.

YA BASTA!

12. Before the next synthetic terror, the dramatic foiled attacks...
That was what a few of us concluded when we first started speculating about a 9/11 follow-on attack. The reasoning was that another "out of the blue" attack would tend to show BushCo as incapable of protecting us, so several dramatic foiled attacks would be necessary to prove competence, and then an actual attack to prove the threats are real.
