Shoe bombers and Gary McKinnon

Years ago a stupid jihadist tried to blow up 300 of his fellow passengers en route to NY - but
he could not get the match to light on his shoe. His fellow passengers grabbed him and off he
went to jail.
Last week, an idiot just like him in Iraq tried to hit George Bush with his shoes, but both times
he threw them, he missed. Missed me, missed me, now you gotta kiss me...
He was a journalist, and his fellow pressmen grabbed him just like they grabbed the shoe bomber. Both are now in jail.
But whadda ya know, there are idiots who want to make this guy a hero...just like the Gary McKinnon supporters.
Me thinks they do protest too much. And me thinks they will all be in jail a long, long time.
We will help to keep their feet on the ground, but they may live out their lives barefoot.

Rumble in Bombay

This whole week we have been hearing details of the terrorist atrocities in Bombay, or as they call it, Mumbai. 10 or more young Pakistanis opened fire and killed up to 300 people, and wounded lots more. Ironically, for guys who hated the west, they were all wearing upscale
western clothing. They looked like models for Banana Republic.
So it is not surprise to hear they were trained in Leeds, the home of the 7/7 bombers. And, it now appears, may have had some links to computer hackers who were able to get them jobs in the hotels. Then there is the question of the weapons they had, and the money behind this thing.
It points back to the UK, which is now a hotbed of terrorism. Some do the actual physical attacks, others do the money, while a third contingent is on to cyber attacks. Some of the people who do this are the nasties who comment adversely on this very blog, and the trail stretches from Essex to Bangkok...to Faridkot, the town in Pakistan where these model kids learned to become kami kazis.

£ and $

Greenbacks and pounds seem to be steadying out, last 3 days the dollar closed at
