Well, it was good while it was getting better, now we’re back to square one again, I’m talking about airport security of course. After the attempted plane bombing attempt on Christmas Day, security has now been upped at international US airports again for any incoming flights deemed to be from “terror-prone” countries. The new rules came into effect today as Barack Obama has been under pressure to visibly improve security.
The Transportation Security Administration said in a statement the new rules apply to flyers coming from or via countries on the US state department’s state sponsors of terrorism list. This includes Cuba, Iran, Sudan, Syria, Afghanistan, Algeria, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia and Yemen. However, any passenger from any country could now be checked at random as well, so it’s entirely possible to be checked when flying directly from the UK.
I’m so tired with all of this now, the ridiculous security that never seems to work well, the constant wars that it seems we must be involved in (thanks America), the endless violence…it just seems to be getting worse with every passing month. What with the admittance made by MP’s here now that they new, along with the states, that the whole Iraq war was really about regime change, it just shows how ignorant and self righteous the West has become.
