LOOK, its not about about a real or fake terror plot OK?
Like everything else related to this fictional "warren terra", the way it works is like this:

* There is a little sliver of what could be considered a terra plot (think Miami gang)

* The information is filed away by President Douchebag's minions

* An elaborate narrative is prepared to maximize the fear factor

* Political circumstances arise that need a terra scare

* The plot is dusted off and announced with great fanfare, CNN goes into full-on terror boner

* President Numb-nuts declares "see, this is why we hate muslims"


LATHER RINSE REPEAT

So please stop with the bitching about whether it was a real plot or not, technically it was, several months ago. Then is was wrapped up in layers of bullshit and propoganda and served up steaming hot to a gullible and brainwashed public.

Have I told you today how much I hate these people?

1. I don't know much about this particular plot but that's exactly how...
...it's worked, for the most part, in the past. I don't see any reason they'd change their playbook.

Spot-on and recommended!

4. Remember the Miami gang?
They talked about blowing up the Sears Tower, it was credible because one of them visited Chicago once :wtf:
They lived in a friggin warehouse.

5. Now, THAT I agree with.
The "plot" may well have been real (in some form).

The issue isn't with a fabrication, it's with the hyping of an event to scare people.

7. Assume The Plot Was Real - Plot Foiled - Why Publicize Now?
Answer!

Bush enabler Lieberman - defeated!

Bush poll numbers in the toilet!

BP oil pipeline closure raising pump prices!

Everything is designed to distract the American public.

8. If the bush administration had done their jobs ...
... we wouldn't be dealing with this crap. If Osama or whoever was responsible for September 11, 2001, would have been captured/killed, then Al Qaeda would have crumbled. Terrorists perceived the U.S. as weak and stupid the moment we diverted our resources and went into the cesspool vortex of Iraq. Instead of spending all that money in Iraq, the U.S. and Britain could have implemented greater security strongholds in both countries, and a stronger military.

If you don't do the right thing, with strength and good judgment, people will strike at you when they realize that you are weak and stupid. Here we are, 5 years after that horrid day, and it's the same old sh*t, thanks to the incompetence and shortsightedness of the bush administration.

bush blew it.

10. Totally agree, it doen't matter
they use everything and anything whether it is true, a half truth, or a lie.

Don't forget that the Madrid bombings were used by the right wing government there
but the people caught on to the scam the government tried to push.

13. Like I said in another thread - they're fucking with us at this point.
That's it. We got their main man Joe Schmoe out of Congress, now they want to scare the shit out of us. So this whole shit about not being able to bring liquids on planes is just one more way of fucking with us. What are the duty-free shops going to do?

16. If it follows the usual arc, we'll find out in the next few days/weeks...
that the "terrorists" were actually a bunch of losers who spouted nonsense to an agent who was actually the source of most of the terror ideas.

17. They're kinda screwed at this point..
... they need another terror strike to scare the American Pussies, but if there is one it will be a failure of their anti-terror program.

They don't know whether to shit or flush. :)

21. The media has been wall to wall squealing chimps.
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 01:58 PM by BrightKnight
The MSNBC headline "Red Alert!" is way over the top. The Primate House is milking it for all they can get out out of it.
