Air Marshals Heads

The British Airline Pilots' Association is debating whether or not to formally accept the deployment of air marshals on US-bound flights:

British pilots -- unhappy with air marshals but starting to see them as inevitable -- were due to meet Darling later on Tuesday to press for an industry-wide agreement on their deployment.

"The fact that you have got people behind you in a pressurized cabin with guns and bullets is not a happy thought," said a spokesman for the British Airline Pilots' Association (BALPA), which groups most of Britain's 9,200 airline pilots.

Imperialist American Infidel To Be SlaughteredWhat does the thought of five Islamic extremists with murderous intentions behind you cause? Warm fuzzies?

This is of concern to me as British Airways is the only airline to offer non-stop flights from Denver to London, and the World Wide Wife and Runt* are heading there next month to visit family. So it's not just a matter of them being unwilling to defend their own lives; they're unwilling to have the lives of my wife and child defended. Maybe I should cancel that trip until those pilots sprout some nads.

(shakes head)

(walks away)

Update: Hooray, something else to worry about.

Police in England and Europe are seeking Al Qaeda terrorists planning to bomb trans-Atlantic jets departing Paris and London, security sources said yesterday.
Such stories wouldn't really have concerned me before I became a father. Odd that.

* Isn't she adorable? And, yet, our enemy would think nothing of killing her. No remorse. No regret. She's an infidel and must be slaughtered. Try it, assholes.
