Yikes (or Foiling a Splash in the Pond)

Being a somewhat frequent traveler between the US and the UK on United Airlines, this was unsettling news:

The United States on Thursday raised its terror threat level after British police said they had arrested more than 20 suspects in a major terrorist plot to blow up passenger jets flying between the United Kingdom and the United States.

The foiled plot was "intended to be mass murder on an unimaginable scale," Metropolitan Police Deputy Commissioner Paul Stephenson said.

The intelligence that uncovered the plot "makes very strong links to al Qaeda," a senior U.S. administration official told CNN.

I think, uh, maybe I'll just stay Stateside for a while.

Kudos to the British police and intelligence services for the take-down.

(Pssst... a little reminder to too many on the left*: there's a war on).

* That would be this left, that segment of the "reality-based community" that lives in a dream world of black helicopters and conspiracy theories and giant, nuclear-mutated insects.
