American counterterrorism forces recently thwarted an apparent plot by Al Qaeda's franchise in Yemen to bring down a commercial plane, seizing a new, more sophisticated explosive device designed to be worn by a passenger, government officials said Monday.

First this prooves that terrorism is not a myth according to many who think its all made up, and secondly if Bin Laden were not really killed would they plan a attack on the 1 year anniversary of his demise? People think that is also a myth.

Or this is just more fiction, & the Powers at be selected the 1 year anniversary to lend the fake attack more credence.

1) why would any terrorist organization be so transparent as to plot an attack on the death of it's former leader.
why not any other random day of the year, or another day of significance to the west.

2) Another underwear bomb ūüôĄ that one AGAIN !!!

Some would say that people in our government are terrorists but most of those people are also terrorists.

Catch up .......

Australia is as much a target of terrorism as is the USA or the U.K or any other country on the planet for that matter.

Your delusional to think the USA is the only one in this fight.

The USA is the only one who seeks to keep it's people in a constant state of fear.

Most likely to keep it's people from seeing the real issue.

which is, that America's failing economy.

The USA is amongst the poorest nations in the world, barley has a working healthcare system, it's electoral system is a joke.

& it's tax system is geared in favour of business & the rich and not the average person on the street.

The USA lack of democracy, & the fact that the USA claims to be a free society when all the while it's in fact a military state & a country hell bent on tracking & spying on it's own people.

Yes terrorism is real in the USA and in every country around the world

[highlight=#bf00bf]But the way the USA uses terrorism as a smoke screen to keep the American people in fear so as to keep their minds on war & the fear of being killed.
THU stopping them from turning their minds & their thoughts to the real issue which is the decay of the USA into poverty & how the American people so freely handed over there freedoms to a military state, for so little in return, is also real.[/highlight]

Here is one off my fave songs from back in my school days of the late 90's.

A song iv posted for you in the past, ..... See if you can relate to it's tone.

Remember these songs are from 1994, move forward to 2001 - 2012. ūüĎŅ

Off the top of my head ...

Hmmmmm

The following actual attacks either happened in Australian territory, were targeted against Australia, or involved a substantial number of Australian casualties.

Sydney Hilton bombing

On 13 February 1978, a bomb exploded outside the Hilton Hotel in Sydney, which was hosting the first Commonwealth Heads of Government Regional Meeting. Two garbage collectors and a police officer were killed and eleven others were injured. As a result of the bombing, ASIO's powers and budget were greatly expanded. It was also a motivation for the formation of the Australian Federal Police.

Turkish consulate bombing
On 23 November 1986, a car bomb exploded in a carpark beneath the Turkish Consulate in South Yarra, Victoria, killing the bomber who failed to correctly set up the explosive device. Levon Demirian, a Sydney resident with links to the Armenian Revolutionary Federation, was charged over the attack and served 10 years.

[highlight=#ff40ff]2002 Bali bombings[/highlight]
Occurred on 12 October 2002 in the tourist district of Kuta on the Indonesian island of Bali. The attack was the deadliest act of terrorism in the history of Indonesia or Australia, killing 202 people, of whom the largest portion (88) were Australians. A further 240 people were injured.

[highlight=#ff40ff]Australia has been a direct target most notably in the 2004 Australian embassy bombing in Jakarta, Indonesia,[/highlight]

I know where this is going so let me cut you off right there.

Australia, like every nation has had it's share of terrorist attacks.

Further more,

Australia has been right there when other nations have also been attacked as well.

Australian Prime Minister John Howard was in Washington D.C on the morning of the attacks

On September 11, 2001 John Howard, Prime Minister of Australia attended a joint session of Congress and was acknowledged with a standing ovation.

The 2005 London bombings

Prime Minister Tony Blair has cancelled a visit to an east London school and a photo shoot & meeting with visiting Prime Minister John Howard of Australia, instead heading to a COBRA committee emergency meeting. Australian Prime Minister John Howard is in London and is involved in discussions with Tony Blair as this unfolds.

In a public press conference, Blair said that "there appear to have been no casualties", and that he wanted people to "React calmly, and continue with our lives". John Howard also stated that Australia stood by Britain and that people should "beware the minds of terrorists."
