Beavis and Butthead in London jihad

… interesting take on the latest UK ‘Terror’ threat …

Huh-huh-huh, let’s break somethin’

“Police and securocrats know that there aren’t enough real terrorists in the world, which is why they have to keep manufacturing them. This is because citizens tire of being watched by cameras, frisked and x-rayed, having their belongings searched, giving fingerprints to so-called friendly nations on entry, contemplating the myriad government databases where their details and activities are preserved, and wondering if some dour little bureaucrat is reading their email or listening to them on the phone.…”

One thought on “Beavis and Butthead in London jihad

  1. I agree with the author, excepting one point — the goal of terrorism is to create terror. Even though neither of these “devices” detonated (nor the “flaming car of death” in Glascow), they still were able to ratchet up the tension level in at least two countries. Though the effects are temporary, their goal was achieved.

    On a side note… glad to see you’re still alive Andy! Been wondering about you…
