A Disturbing Turn in the War on Terror (Yes! We Are At War, Folks!)

After watching Primetime last night on ABC, these terrorists devised a shrewd and, yes, brilliant way to get past security checkpoints through the use of liquid or haircare products (read below). It’s a new day on the war front.
(2) Our far too complacent country led by our far too complacent government is still at war with an enemy that hates all things Israeli and all things Western — and that this enemy will not go away anytime soon.

Pertaining to the terror plot, Robert Barr (AP) reports:

British police have arrested 24 people suspected of involvement in the plot. Investigators, describing a plan on the scale of the Sept. 11 attacks, said the attackers planned to use common electronic devices to detonate liquid explosives to bring down as many as 10 planes.The bombs were to be assembled on the aircraft, apparently with peroxide-based solution and everyday carry-on items such as a disposable camera or a music player, two American law enforcement officials told The Associated Press. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because Britain asked that no information be released. (To read the entire article, click here.)

As a result, more security measures are now in place. No haircare products (sprays, gels, etc.) nor any liquids at all may come on board.

Let us pray that proper action would take place to help maintain the security of our country.

Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. [2] Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. [3] For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, [4] for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer. [5] Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience. [6] For the same reason you also pay taxes, for the authorities are ministers of God, attending to this very thing (Romans 13:1-6, ESV)
