Thoughts on the military and military activities of a diverse nature. Free-ranging and eclectic.

This is coolbert:

"Threat level in Britain raised to 'critical'"

Attack on the Glasgow Airport by apparent jihadis? Two "south Asian men" [a British euphemism for Muslims from the Indian sub-continent] have been captured and are in custody.

A SUV ramming through the main entrance of the airport terminal. Drive the vehicle through the inner expanse, mowing down air travelers. That is what was planned?

[attacks of this type have occurred in San Francisco and North Carolina previously? This type of "warfare" is spread by discussion on jihadi web sites?]

Copycats or a well-thought-out jihadi tactic to be used over and over?

Access to the terminal was blocked by concrete post obstacles, bollards.

"bollards — security posts outside the entrance — stopped the driver from barreling into the bustling terminal at Glasgow's airport."

"Permanent and retractable buried bollards are increasingly common around the world to hinder vehicle-based terrorist actions from achieving close proximity to buildings"

[I have noticed recently that ALL jewelry stores in the U.S. are NOW incorporating into their architectural design bollards. At the entrance to deter smash and grab style attack using SUV, so favored by criminals, primarily street gang members.]

This could have been a major disaster. Lots of casualties.

"He's trying to get through the main door frame but the bollards have stopped him from going through. If he'd got through, he'd have killed hundreds, obviously,"

"Intelligence officials were examining a post to an Islamist Web site — hours before the cars were found — that suggested Britain would be attacked for awarding a knighthood to the novelist Salman Rushdie and for intervening in Muslim countries."

Well, there you have it. Salman Rushdie is awarded a knighthood, so you kill hundreds of folks in response.

This attack, coupled with the two car bombs discovered in London, could be an indication that the INTERNAL INSURRECTION feared by British MI5 is NOW taking place?

And, just think about how easy this sort of thing is to do. WHO NEEDS rifles, pistols, explosives, etc., when all you need is a SUV!
