Britain Foils Terror Plot with Help From Pakistani Officials – Liquid Explosives Could Have Been Used

It appears a major terror plot against the United States and Great Britain has been uncovered before suspected terrorists were able to blow up nine aircraft loaded with passengers traveling from the UK to the US. The security action has disrupted air travel between both nations, and put the US and Great Britain on high alert.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: A Great Danger to the World

Since winning election in June 2005 on a platform of bringing about a “Second Islamic Revolution,” Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called for Israel’s destruction and repeatedly denied the Holocaust. In October, the Iranian President called Israel a “disgraceful blot” and declared that it must be “wiped off the map.” In the wake of Hezbollah’s initiation of hostilities against Israel and Israel’s military operations against that Iranian proxy, Ahamdinejad declared, “The real cure for the conflict is elimination of the Zionist regime.” In addition, he has repeatedly described the Holocaust as a “myth.” The world can ill afford to stand aside while Ahmadinejad foams at the mouth so to speak. Ahmadinejad actually means what he says. If not checked, he may well gain the ability to pursue his radical vision.

Ahmadinejad is a charismatic leader. Charismatic leaders possess an often extraordinary ability to appeal to the masses in building support for their vision. It is precisely that attribute that allowed the then relatively little-known Mayor of Tehran to make a meteoric ascent to the Presidency. Such leaders can accomplish a lot during their tenure or they can bring about great harm. Adolf Hitler was one who inflicted catastrophic harm. Given his ideology and ambitions, the Iranian leader is a charismatic leader who could prove most dangerous.

14 Billion Doesn't Buy What It Used To

I am not sure how much national attention this story has gotten but there was a tragedy that took place in Boston’s Big Dig on July 10th. One of the ceiling panels that are hung in the tunnels of the biggest construction project in the world, the “Big Dig”, fell and crushed a car killing a woman inside. The panels are 20’ x 20” and reports have said they weigh anywhere from 3 to 12 tons.

This is a huge story here in Massachusetts where I live, as it should be. Politicians are once again using this to their advantage to either make themselves look better or the other party look worse. Everyone in this country is the victim, because it is all tax money, although the woman that died and her new husband are directly victimized.
