Posted:There was a bobmb scare beside me on Friday. reckon there will be many more of these, some of them not just scares

Expect a lot more now that the Americans have revealed Sadaam may not have had any weapons of mass destruction, terrorists will think they are vindicated in attacking.

If you do see a suspect package or someone acting suspiciously, get help.

Posted:Well... the thing is, is there are not more "attacks" or threats, they are just more revealed to the public.

Iraq is a pretty big country, I bet you I could hide a cruise ship in the middle of Iraq and you would never find it!

Posted:It's not actually very big, about the size of california and a high altitude plane can photograph miles of country side at a time.

It's not that hard to find stuff.

Posted:does C@ntus have a fuzzy face??

I actually heard today that the attack was made by a disgruntled Qantas employee.

Thats rather sad actually, because the two ppl that got seriously hurt were also employees.... seems wrong somehow.

Posted:yesh that whole terrorist on plane thing today was scary. heard it on the news as i was pulling into work.

when i came home flicked on the news and there it was... one poor fella with his head all sliced open with many stitches... and a girl who had been bashed.

the guy was tryin to get into the cockpit but the 2 flight attendants stopped him... with a wooden stake as a weapon.

also, he wasnt a qantas employee... he worked sumwhere else... dont remember where, (mebbe they are connected to qantas? i dunno...) but hes facing life imprisonment (and so he should!) and is goin into court today or tomorrow...

kinda scary really...

thats all i know

[edit] i jus heard on the news after i pushed post... that the terrorist went to court today for attempting to hijack a plane and 2 assault charges... and he will go back in august (why so long???)

and he was an I.T dude... btw

Posted:apparently the IT dude had alotta personal probs in the years and months leading up to him.
Apparently he was a real nice guy before he quit his job.
I doubt that he was a part of a terrorist organisation - his company's name wasn't 'Microsoft'

Posted:I thought they said they were modifying planes to make the cockpit unaccesible from the passenger compartment? After 9/11 it's absolutly disgusting that they haven't done this yet. It's bad enough they didn't do it before 9/11 let alone now. I get so pissed off when governments would rather take away our civil rights but won't do anything about actual security. 9/11 could have been prevented if they didn't slack off on security after the 70's when the hijackings stopped happening.

Posted:you gotta remember that this is Australia (I think it was even a domestic flight, but I am not sure). Australia has not had terrorist activity on its soil. As a country, we are incredibly naive and inexperienced when it comes to these things.

It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...
