War on terror

Despite what we may think of George Bush, Jim Doyle or Mark Green- we all need to understand that we are in the middle of the war on terror.

My fear is that we, as a nation, will forget about the war on terror, and another 9/11 will happen again.

Today-British police arrested 26 people suspected of an involvment with plotting to plant bombs on a plane. This plot was very serious and involved flights heading to the US from Heathrow Airport.

Here is the story from USA Today.

British authorities said Thursday they had thwarted a terrorist plot to simultaneously blow up several aircraft to the U.S. using explosives smuggled in hand luggage, averting what police described as "mass murder on an unimaginable scale."

Officials raised security to its highest level in Britain — suggesting a terrorist attack might be imminent — and banned hand-carried luggage on all trans-Atlantic flights. Huge crowds formed at security barriers at London's Heathrow airport as officials searching for explosives barred nearly every form of liquid outside of baby formula.

If cut and run and lose the war at all cost Feingold had his way there would again be more dead Americans with plane parts all over the sea.
