Foreign students coming to Britain to learn how to make WMDs

Almost 800 foreign students have been barred from studying in the UK amid fears they might use the knowledge they gain to build weapons of mass destruction.

A total of 739 student applications, for a range science and engineering based courses, have been rejected to prevent extremists gaining access to the information and materials they need to develop nuclear and chemical weapons.

The students were barred as part of the Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS), which was introduced in 2007 following concern from the security services that terrorists were targeting British universities.

    Stop selling out our own kids. No more foreign students. Let other countries educate their own.

        If it wasn’t for all the terrorists and communists studying engineering and science then the universities would be unable to subsidize those transgender studies students and business studies.

    Now if we could only prevent Red Chinese students (and Koreans) from coming here to study computer technology, nuclear physics, etc., we’d have a good start.
