Appeasement makes you safer...

This is a good piece on the Canadian terrost arrests...

Be sickened. Be frightened. Be angry. But don't you dare be shocked.

Unless you've been had.

Either way, the time has long passed for domestic bliss born of ignorance, virtue and wilful denial.

For everyone who thought Canada could cower in a corner of the planet, unnoticed and unthreatened by evil men — even when the most menacing of a very bad lot has twice referenced this country as a target for attack — take a good, hard look at what's been presented and what's being alleged.

Three tonnes of ammonium nitrate, thrice the amount used by Timothy McVeigh to demolish a government building in Oklahoma City. Cellphone detonators. Switches. Computer hard drive. A 9-mm pistol. Soldering gun. Camouflage gear.....

F--ing lotta good appeasement and military weakness has done Canada. Oh, and by the way, this is what a ton of Ammonium Nitrate does...

Oklahoma City Bombing

The Oklahoma City bombing. Did you notice the line quoted above? "Unless you've been had." Well folks, the reference to Oklahoma City reminds me that there is a high degree of likelihood that YOU have been had, too. Clinton and the press leaped on the idea that Oklahoma City was a right-wing plot inspired by Rush Limbaugh. The result was that we never got the answers to some sticky questions.

How did Nichols get the money for trips to the Philippines? Why did his paths cross those of Ramzi Yousef? (Remember him? The first WTC bombing.) Why did Oklahoma City use a new bomb formula also found on a captured terrorist's laptop a month before? Here are some more of the questions. Don't expect any answers....
