Al-Qaeda tagets Britain...

This is from the Daily Telegraph in the UK...
The terrorist threat facing Britain from home-grown al-Qaeda agents is higher than at any time since the September 11 attacks in 2001, secret intelligence documents reveal.

The number of British-based Islamic terrorists plotting suicide attacks against "soft" targets in this country is far greater than the Security Services had previously believed, the government paperwork discloses. It is thought the plotters could number more than 2,000.

Under the heading "International Terrorism in the UK", the document - seen by The Sunday Telegraph - states: "The scale of al-Qaeda's ambitions towards attacking the UK and the number of UK extremists prepared to participate in attacks are even greater than we had previously judged."

It warns that terrorist "attack planning" against Britain will increase in 2007, and adds: "We still believe that AQ [al-Qaeda] will continue to seek opportunities for mass casualty attacks against soft targets and key infrastructure. These attacks are likely to involve the use of suicide operatives."

Help us, help us, the terrorists are coming!

Nothing like a bit of scaremongering to sell papers.

And yet Dion doesn't think we need anti-terror laws anymore, Fred. I don't get it.

And yet, Joanne, if Canada (God forbid) were the victim of another terrorist attack (I obviously include the Air India bombing in that category), you can be sure that the Liberal opposition would be screaming, "Why didn't the government do anything to prevent it?"
