Airport security? Don’t make me laugh

The simple truth is that airport security has never played a role in frustrating terrorist attack plans; all have been the result of good intelligence. The ridiculous checks on liquids et al are there because the real way to do security — profiling — isn’t PC

    If that really is what the bomb looked like, the bomber smuggled it on board and set it off. Th solution is for muslims to design and build their own planes, set up their own airlines and not fly with the rest of us humans.

    • When I saw the draft which was of 7159 dollars, I accept that my friend’s brother was like really generating cash in his spare time with his computer. . His aunts neighbor has done this for only 10 months and by now repaid the loan on their home and bought a new Car .This is what they are donig …

      The job of re-sealing the base of the can with epoxy resin looks a bit crude. The base would be removed to insert an explosive charge.
      The small hole in the middle of the base would be to take the electric detonator, the component in the centre.
      The top of the can and ringpull would look intact for cursory inspection if the can was placed in a catering trolley.
      The component on the right should be an exploder. It looks fake to me, with those red and green indicator lights.

        The thing on the right is just a toggle switch so you can send power to the detonator. That’s why it has to be a suicide bomb. There is no timer or remote control switch. The operator has to flick that toggle switch. You could put a small timer inside the can but that’s not what they are showing here.

      “set up their own airlines and not fly with the rest of us humans.”

      What I am sure you meant to say was

      ‘set up their own airlines and not fly with us humans’

      Drop “the rest of us”. Now your sentence makes more sense.

    Among the many islamophobia stories in the Star website today is something related to travel. That old commie Rick Salutin after ranting about islamophobic Mark Steyn and how the West created ISIS, he gives as one of the reasons young muslims go to fight in Syria, is that they simply want to travel.

    • tom_billesley

      As Jihadi John found out, travel broadens the mind. In his case it’s now about half an acre broad.

      When Maher Arar got him self in trouble globe trotting with his wife and kids he used our media for his propaganda that he was on “vacation” in Tunisian and had to fly to New York to get back to Canada .
      But he was refused entry at JFK because the FBI had a file on him for his ties to the radical jihadist producing Boston mosque that had ties to Al-qaeda .
      Omar Khadr said he saw Maher Arar at an Al-Qaeda training camp in Afghanistan prior to 9/11 which matched his timeline to have a second Home near a Boston Airport around 2000.
      Now the Arar’s want to “vacation” in Saudi Arabia but can’t get a travel Visa to cross over into USA space to get there.

      The quran allows muslims to lie if it’s in the cuase to further sharia or to plot against the Infidels to take over there land for the Caliphate.

    The good news is it was supposedly put on the wrong plane.
    so now ISIS has Russians on their ass instead of Obama.

      It would have been “Call me Dave” on their ass.

    Airport security theatre has modest costs to the politically connected providers who make the big bucks. Not unlike most rent seeking to be had around airports. Low paid jobs with good theft benefits are always quickly taken up.
    In such actions there is usually a high probability that a long term smoothly operating drug smuggling route has been “borrowed” for the occasion.

    Toronto newscasts are once again reminding us that islamophobia has gone crazy all over Toronto. Muslims are being hunted down and persecuted all over the city because they are members of the religion of peace. Will these atrocities not end. I suggest to make muslims more comfortable this time of year and to welcome the refugees, that all Christmas celebrations both public and private be banned.

      John Tory is in full swing for Canadian-bashing to blame they alleged attacks on Mosques or muslims done by white christian Canadians.
      This is the same John Tory that denied there was any overt male nudity in the PRIDE parade just because he didn’t see it , Tory also said that if the Laws were broken the Police would have done something.

      He knows deep down inside how dangerous it is now to offend islam or muslims based on actual facts and events where a large number are prone
      to riots, terrorism acts and willing to die for allah as a suicide bomber.

      Sadly though, Justin and Tory won’t wake-up until the pressure-cooker bombs go off at a PRIDE parade or when suicide bombers go into gay bars to turn gays into rice pudding.
      Toronto had its issues in the 1960’s, but the Liberal leftist progressives have destroyed all the good things along with the bad where we now see Toronto as a welfare city and minority ghetto heading towards being a Detroit with guns and gangs . The production job are leaving Toronto while more Welfare housing is built and more Public sector jobs to handle the Social services .

      The Toronto-18 muslims wanted to slaughter around 10,000 people in the Down Town area via their truck-bombs …..and John Tory has the nerve to expect us to shut-up and accept a death-cult or be called a Racist Bigot if we even question the claims by CAIR or Sheema Khan the islam is a religion of peace.

      Terrorism works so islamists don’t have to.

        Tory is a liberal asshat

    • Blind Druid

      Too many bleeding heart liberals with heads in the sand. The Friday-After-Mosque mass murder/hostage thing today at The Radisson Hotel in Mali is still going on, but in Toronto they are having a “Muslim solidarity march”, all because some sharmuta was called names and had her niqab yanked at, and there was some “Racist” graffiti (“Muslims go home”) on the Go-Train. For the millionth time – What “Race” is Islam? Now the sickening CTV/CBC are portraying the Muslims as the freaking VICTIMS!

      • Alain

        The message about going home is clearly not being made strong enough.

    • Alain

      Oh if only there were true. I am talking about all this “islamophobia” of course.

    Now that Omar Khadr is loose and the TTC is going to put WiFi in the Subway system , I won’t be shocked when a Madrid style slaughter happens by the Khadr’s and radical muslims that use backpak bombs set off by a Phone that is wired to the detonator when the call comes in .

    The TTC is still in their dream World that Canada has all the peaceful
    muslims while Germany , England and France got many of the bad ones that follow the quran to a T.
    It took until around 2006 when I saw the local TTC subway give out a notice that fake smoke would be coming from a Subway tunnel as part of a Rescue Exercise .

    The dolts in charge are going to get us killed.
