Hmmm, that's not good. We here in N Ireland have to keep an eye out for suspiciously parked cars. One trick that they used to use was to put a bomb in a boilersuit, stuff the boliersuit and leave it in the middle of some darkened road. The security forces would turn up thinking someone had been shot and get caught in the blast. The problem here is that terrorists are getting more inventive all of the time. A few years ago they built a bomb into a traffic cone and placed it outside someones house. The target person's neighbour picked it up and now they can't walk.

They're all scumbags with no respect for life

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill
