I'm glad that this plot was foiled
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 12:26 PM by Greylyn58
and that there was no loss of life. God knows this planet has seen too much death and destruction over the last 3 years and I pray that an end comes soon. Wishful thinking on my part I know, but hey--that's my wish for everyone on the Earth.

However, I can't shake the part of me that wonders if this plot was discovered and/or happened at this particular time to distract from the up-coming elections here in the US. Let's keep the sheeple terrorized and on edge...only we(meaning the Repugs) can save you. It's not like we haven't seen this scenario before. Bushco just loves to trot out the "Terra" whenever it's needed to keep the subjects in-line

Maybe my tin-foil hat is too tight or perhaps it's the lies and corruption of Bushco that are pushing me in this direction. I don't know, but I'm praying that we-the voters-are smarter and will not fall for this crap again.

I guess only time will tell.





Edited: because I don't wish to fight on DU and be accused of being heartless!!

1. too early for that
and it's August. This isn't good for Chimpy and co, since it looks like the brits are better than we are. If this was a political unveiling, it would be in September. (close enough to the election, but far enough away that some of the flight restrictions could be eased, and the terra level lowered, before people go to the polls)

2. Well let's ask ourselves: why aren' they calling for ceasefire?
War is good for them. They enjoy it (at the polls and at the pocketbook).

8. Yes I agree... feeding the war machine
BIG TIME!! That is precisely why no ceasefire (you can see right through Condi on this). That is so obvious. Well orchestrated war. Does anyone else see that?

3. Is that really what you meant to say: "Part of me is glad that...
this plot was foiled..." While many of us may question the truth behind this alert, I can not imagine any DUer or progressive being only "partially glad" that the plot was foiled and thus (if true) no lives were lost? I'm betting that was not what you meant to say...

Nonetheless, I'm guessing your post will be up on all the RW websites as an example of how inhumane the Left is.... :shrug:

6. I'm sorry that's how you read my post
I was trying to indicate how conflicted I feel about this. I wish I could have looked at this story and just been happy instead of wondering if it was something that was created to scare the masses.

I'm glad that it was stopped. As I said, we do not need anymore death...there's more than enough going on right now.

5. Let's get some perspective here.
There's no 'part of me' to it. Thank God it was foiled and bless Scotland Yard for it.

If there is any political connection, it is possibly an al Qaeda attempt to influence the elections to ensure that the Republicans and Bush keep their power. Perhaps this was the substitute for an election eve bin Laden speech a la 2004.

7. I read last night that Cheney said "the terraists rejoice
at the loss of Lieberman"

Now ole Dick will probably point to this in future months and say "See? See? I was right."

Snake.

I am terribly glad it was foiled. I just hope they don't get lucky any time soon.

Snakes.

12. You're so right
he is a snake.

We haven't seen much of ole' Dick of late. Wanna bet he crawls out from under his rock now that "terra" is back in the news. He'll probably start showing up on all the best RW news shows spewing his crap.

10. Absolutely! GOP faces the possibility of losing CONTROL come November
and that's a fact, I remeber when the full blown alert that was imposed on New York city from intel/info that was 5 years old and Bush's numbers coincidently were tanking then too!!

11. That's why I can't lose my tin-foil hat
when it comes to these people.

We can't trust anything that comes out of their mouths.
