Each of the bombs over the weekend were estimated to hold 250 gallons of petrol, 8 canisters of propane, and 18-20 cases of carpenter nails. All legally accessible products and when combined could create a fireball that expands to over 400 feet in length in every direction.
So you're average jihadist is able to run around free as a bird, put together these rather conventional style bombs, and what does the left in America say?
Well as of press time for this column, none of the Democratic candidates for President had publicly addressed the matter. Most leftist media also shrugged it off. But their "nutroots" supporters were all over it. Posters at the Huffington Post, The Democratic Underground, and The Daily Kos web sites were already hatching 102 different conspiracy theories about how this was planned by the evil genius George Bush.
What was shocking in many of the posts at all three sites were the confessions by those who posted them, that they were, "just too cynical to believe these reports anymore."
In other words the freaks who live in these internet caves are more willing to trust the intentions of the "control ordered" Islamic killers, than they are of multiple confirmed reports from CNN, the BBC, and of course the major broadcast networks - none of which lean in any imaginary way in support of the War on Islamic Fascism.
The thing is - the killers know this. They know their rights under British law, they can argue their freedoms under the sanction of "control orders." They are attempting to persuade America to move in that direction and to end the detainments of jihadist psychos living in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Unfortunately the Supreme Court has expressed an interest in at least hearing them out.
What the nutroots, and the liberals did not even bother to investigate has to do with the timing of the attempted car bombings. British authorities knew that threats had been made. Previous attacks were carried out on important dates. Friday was the first day on the job for the Brits' new Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Perhaps even more importantly Al Qaeda may have been attempting to send a message to the jurors in the last London bombing case. The jurors were on their first day of deliberating the outcome of the last batch of murderous thugs who had been captured.
Whatever the motivation, one thing is still very clear...
Islamic Jihadistinannies want to kill free people, particularly free people who stand up to them.
Unfortunately liberals and the nutroots who support them are firmly on their side, passing laws to give the terrorists access, and conspiracies to cover their trails.
Ignoring the voice of these three groups is a global security matter. Detaining, monitoring the communications of, and keeping close track of where these dogs lie, and what they are up to is the only way we can insure both safety and freedom in the days to come.
And I would always prefer those odds, as to say, the pure dumb luck of a passing policeman or parking garage attendants!
