    U.S. warns of body bombs

    What next.

    I think it's time to stop lying to ourselves about Radical Islam.

    We need to at war witht them and take no prisoners in the process.

    Radicala have said and shown that they will stop at nothing hurt us any way they can come up with.

    I thinking I have flown for the last time unless it's a private plane.

    Air security is expected to tighten in light of recent intelligence that terrorists might be considering boarding flights with surgically implanted explosive devices, a U.S. security official said Wednesday. Here are five things to know about the warning:

    1Why are the warnings being issued? Al-Qaida operatives in Yemen has discussed surgically implanting an explosive device under the skin of a suicide bomber to get past airport detectors and blow up a U.S.-bound airliner, a U.S. official said Wednesday. One senior Homeland Security Department official said that the new intelligence surfaced about a month ago and had since been vetted. There is no indication of an immediate plot, but "the new intelligence indicated at least a fresh look at this possible tactic," the official said.

    2What is the focus of the threat? The Department of Homeland Security has "in recent days" warned foreign counterparts of the potential threat, said Greg Soule, a spokesman for the Transportation Security Agency. The focus is more on international flights, but domestic passengers are likely to see more security too.

    Surely we'll be able to wipe them out and eliminate the threat forever.

    This scares you enough to stop flying?

    Is this your official notice of surrender? Maybe you should surrender on one of the radical Islam websites just to make it official.

    The only body bombs I've experienced on flights are from people who ate too much airline food. The stench is insufferable.

    Seriously though... isn't it obvious where this kind of fear mongering is taking us? As if the TSA isn't intrusive enough already.

    "Excuse me sir, is that a surgically implanted pipe bomb or are you just happy to see me?"

    In Moscow, the terrorists simply blew up the line of people waiting, killing dozens. This security theater BS needs to end. Abusing people who are trying to fly protects no one.

    Terrorists will strike wherever they can if they want to. Guard one place, they'll find another. Soon you'll be walking around in suits of armor because they're...they're everywhere. EVERYWHERE, I tell you...

    You ever heard of Richard Marcinko? He was a retired Navy Seal that went into business checking the vulnerability of airports, nuclear facilities, and other such sensitive places. He REPEATEDLY infiltrated even the highest level of security systems and showed how the security personnel themselves could be made to give information. (that's right, we don't own a monopoly on torture) This proves that to a determined person, they will always find a way in. Just like hackers.

    You'd think there was a terrorist attack every Saturday from how terrified people are. In case you haven't noticed, the last time there was a successful terrorist attack involving an airplane was just about 10 years ago, and that was caused by a massive lack of competence in the intelligence community, not a lack of airport security.
