Don't know if everyone's heard yet this morning or not but, there was a "Major terriorism plot" broken up by U.S. and UK counter-terriorism and law enforcement officials. From what I'm hearing it would have killed close to as many people as 9/11 by blowing up planes over the Atlantic on their way to the U.S. . I'm not sure if this is proper or not to put this post on this site but I for one just want this community to know that we should deeply thank those that work so hard to protect us from these idiots who have no regard for human life. So again anyone reading this that is in law enforcement or any form of the military, Thank-you for everything you do. You guys are the "True Heroes".

very kind of you to say...this was a big score.
and for those of you in the LE world who are bogged down by recent changes in your workday post 9/11: even the mundane tasks such as routine patrols and pushing paperwork contributes to the cause. Never lose sight on "why" we do what we do.

21 people were arrested. The tip came from the Pakistani govt
(a major ally in the war on terror)

I hope that the people that would have been on those planes hug policemen today. I have so much respect for the LE in this country.

unless it has changed, the report from Britian this morning said up to 10 planes in coordinated succession. if you assume 400 passengers each (a conservative number), that is upwards of 4,000 people that could have died in the attack - a sight more than 9/11 if i'm not mistaken.

Thanks for backing my comments up on that. I heard the same thing as you. Which with those numbers as I said would be on the scale of 9/11. I didn't want to sound like a rumourer, if that is a word. I did hear it was unimaginable what they were planning. Nonetheless, Bottom line as I stated earlier I thank those who broke it up.

well, it is looking as though it would have been quite a bit more than 9/11 had it gone through - the death toll for 9/11 was 2,752 people. you'd have more people than that easily on 10 trans-atlantic flights.

scary, this world of ours.

I heard about this right after I got to work this morning....my stomach dropped and I seriously felt the way I did the morning of 9/11 when I was at work.....I was just waiting for bad news all day....just goes to show we still can't let our guards down......
