ROMULUS, Mich. (AP) - An attempted terrorist attack on a Christmas Day flight began with a pop and a puff of smoke - sending passengers scrambling to subdue a Nigerian man who claimed to be acting on orders from al-Qaida to blow up the airliner, officials and travelers said.
The rest of the story is here; http://apnews.myway.com/article/20091226/D9CR18JO0.html
This incident, the capture of Richard Reid (the "shoe bomber") and the crash of Flight 93 on 9/11/01. Every one of them involved the actions of John & Joan Q. Public in stopping Islamic attacks.
IMHO it's past time to take that activist mindset and make it a part of our culture. Air marshalls, bomb sniffing dogs, etc. are all nice but when the followers of the Pedophile Prophet successfully circumvent protective measures it'll be up to the man/woman on the street to bring this crap to a screaming halt.
Fort Hood was recently shot up because of treasonous political correctness. I mention this to illustrate that the general public can't rely on our "leaders" to keep us safe. They won't for fear of seeming "insensitive" and "Islamophobic". As proven here; http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20091226/ap_on_go_ot/us_airliner_attack_terror_list
At the end of the day, after a plane falls from the sky or some public facility is shot up, they'll sit at home in their gated communities reading the newspapers and clucking their tongues over the state of the world.
Then the survivors can tell them, "Thanks for nothing!"
So only the man in the street can take care of business. Fortunately that sort of thing isn't totally alien to the American mind. It's fallen into disrepute over the years (witness how fighting back against a schoolyard bully is no longer encouraged) but it's still present.
Time to take the chains off Chang and get to work. Not just in this area alone, the more active the citizenry the less likely we'll see a successful socialist takeover of our nation. That last might explain why so many of the intelligentsia are irate about those who blog, twitter, etc.
