There was chaos at Britain’s airports yesterday after it was revealed that British Intelligence had foiled a terrorist plot to cause “mass murder on an unimaginable scale” by blowing up at least ten planes on route to American cities. Many British and foreign flight operators cancelled flights, leaving tens of thousands of passengers stranded. The terror level at Britain’s airports has now been raised to critical and security measures tightened. Long queues formed at the nation’s airports as all passengers were hand searched and their footwear and anything they were carrying was x rayed and screened. Many outbound and inbound flights have been cancelled and passengers are not allowed hand baggage, apart from critical items which must be placed in a clear plastic bag. Those travelling with babies are required to taste the contents of baby’s milk bottles, before being allowed to take them on board. Twenty four people have now been arrested over the terrorist plot, which involved smuggling liquid explosives in hand luggage and detonating them.

Thanks for the concern on my big dumb foot! I hope these arrests in Britain really did stop any attacks that were being planned. I don't believe in conspiracy theories but every time the 11th rolls around I worry. May 11 Madrid, June 11 Mumbai, and August 11th?? Call me crazy, maybe it's my foot talking.

Thanks for the visit.

Thank goodness arrests have been made and it means the British police have obviously been on full alert quietly in the background since 9/11 to have caught them so promptly. Well done to them.
