How Hard Is It to Prevent Terrorism in the Air?

U.S. and British intelligence officials say they believe a bomb was likely responsible for bringing down a Russian charter plane over Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula that killed 224 passengers and crew on Saturday.

Investigators continue inspecting wreckage on the ground, as well as security at the Sharm el-Sheikh Airport where the plane took off, but many experts wonder how terrorists could have smuggled an explosive device on board in the first place.

    It won’t happen at Pearson, until it isn’t profitable for the baggage handlers unloading the secret cocaine shipments.

    Just trick the muslims by claiming that the muslim-only fights are to have halal food and no alcohol to accommodate them as the Master-race destine to rule the Earth for Allah by sharia law.
    Let them slaughter each other so we can live in Peace.
