    Terror hero: I didn't hesitate

    This is who the media should be talking about. Not some piece of **** subhuman garbage that tried to murder innocent people.


    Passenger details fight to stop alleged terrorist - NYPOST.com

    A Dutch airline passenger told The Post how he leapt into action when an alleged Muslim terrorist tried to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner packed with 300 people just moments before landing.

    Chaos erupted as alleged terrorist Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab, 23, tried to set off a sophisticated explosive device strapped to his body.
    "Suddenly, we hear a bang. It sounded like a firecracker went off," said Jasper Schuringa, a film director who was traveling to the US to visit friends.

    "When [it] went off, everybody panicked ... Then someone screamed, ‘Fire! Fire!’"

    Schuringa, sitting in seat 20J, in the right-most section of the Airbus 330, looked to his left. "I saw smoke rising from a seat ... I didn’t hesitate. I just jumped," he said.

    Schuringa dove over four passengers to reach Abdul Mutallab’s seat. The suspect had a blanket on his lap. "It was smoking and there were flames coming from beneath his legs."

    "I searched on his body parts and he had his pants open. He had something strapped to his legs."

    The unassuming hero ripped the flaming, molten object — which resembled a small, white shampoo bottle — off Abdul Mutallab’s left leg, near his crotch. He said he put out the fire with his bare hands.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Let's just hope this heroes injuries quickly heal. He put himself at great risk and it would be nice to see the press follow up on him.

    See like I've always said, give every passenger a box cutter when they board. They'll turn terrorists into sliced bologna. Then collect the box cutters as they disembark.

    Once the euphoria of the moment passes, I wonder how long it will take for them to press charges against the passenger that came to the rescue.

    My local news just showed a brief clip from a interview with Schuringa. He looks healthy with only a bandaged right hand.

    God bless this kick a** Dutchman. Well done. The fact is the terrorist may have only sat there and suffered in pain with a device that wasn't going to work correctly. But Mr. Schuringa proved to be a leader just the same.

    Somebody ignites a bomb in a plane up in the air and you are a passenger.....Who isn't going to go flying over the seats to reach his throat.

    In these times there is a wonder that the passengers don't become like sharks in a freeding frenzy. Up 30,000 feet up in the air there is no playing around. I hate heights and even worst I hate falling from heights.

    Am sorry if this guy has any mental problems but in a situation like that I am going to hurt him seriously.

    Someone will want to ue him, like what happened with the Flying Immams. The guy's probably going to claim he was trying to light a cigarette, dropped his lighter and set his pants on fire.
