Not leaving on a jet plane...

Apologies for the flippancy, but might all this 10/8 (yeah, thanks, Sky News) hoo-hah merely be a silly-season publicity stunt...

... Sheikhs On A Plane, anyone?

personally, I'm waiting for the snide, catty Daily Mail piece about how convenient it was that Tony Blair left for his holiday *just before* this happened - thus avoiding the airport chaos - even though he hadn't secured the UNSC resolution as promised...

We recently adopted the American system for the colours associated with a particular "terrorist threat" level. You know, the red, yellow, amber, blue, green, pink, turquoise, gothic loving tints of black and any other colour you find in a cross-stitches' handbook.

We've got to give it a test to see if its intended purpose actually does induces panic and fear amongst the indigenous individuals.

Hey, how do you think it's going?

Ouch! Still keeps the war out of the news, doesn't it?

It is strange that they found terrorists in good ol' Britannia and not Iraq. Remind me, why are we over there again?

Many people here in the U. S. are also questioning the timing of things.

To be fair, I think over in Iraq they're called insurgents (those cerrazy Arabs) and, yes, a fair few have been found. And destroyed.

Maybe one day we'll be on "rainbow alert".
