I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

A real threat broken up the right way

Britain Thwarts Airline Terror Plot
British authorities said today they had disrupted a "major terrorist plot" to blow up passenger flights between the United Kingdom and the United States with liquid explosives, prompting a full-scale security clampdown at U.S. and British airports and a cascade of delays in trans-Atlantic flights.

London's Deputy Police Commissioner, Paul Stephenson, said 21 people had been arrested in London and in Birmingham, England, after a months-long investigation into what he said was a plan for "mass murder on an unimaginable scale." Peter Clarke, chief of the London police department's anti-terrorism branch, said the investigation reached a "critical point" last night, requiring immediate disruption of the plot, the arrests and the imposition of heightened security measures.
Now you will notice that this plot was broken not with torture in secret prisons or invading countries that had nothing to do with it but by good old fashion police work. Yes the war on terror should be a police action not a military one. Good job London Police Department. Few of us "lefties" deny there is a threat but we do question methods that only inflame the problem.

Well I may be wrong, Just heard Larry Johnson on Thom Hartman he he is doubtful. Apparently the Brits can't get their story straight. He thinks it is indeed BS and he's be right more often than not.
