The goddamn terrorists tried to attack someone again, but this time they failed. So what I have heard is that terrorists were trying to blow up as many as ten planes heading for the US today. They mixed Gatorade and some kind of gel to create an explosive liquid that could have been detonated wirelessly using an iPod or cellphone, or any kind of electronic transmitter. London police confirmed that 24 people were arrested and are in custody.
Dave thinks that World War Three is coming soon. And I agree. It is pretty inevidable. Oh, and I started a new forum, WW3Forum. It is here: http://ww3.unicharity.org/forum.
Update: Homeland Security posts a Code-Red alert, and bans liquids from the airplanes.
