Global Incident Map

I found this to be a very interesting and busy map of what is happening today.

So why is Homeland Security tying up border crossings with by far your largest trading partner??

No particular reason.
Ahmed Ressam - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In part:

"On December 14, 1999, Ressam boarded the M/V Coho at Vancouver Island and crossed the border at the Port Angeles, Washington ferry landing. Upon noticing that he appeared nervous, customs officers inspected him more closely and asked for further identification. Ressam panicked and attempted to flee. Customs officials then found nitroglycerin and four timing devices concealed in a spare tire well of his rented car. He was arrested by customs, and investigated by the FBI. He had shared a room in Canada with Abdelmajid Dahoumane, a suspected terrorist."


"Certainly, Canada has a long history of harboring political dissidents from a number of different ethnic militant groups (perhaps as many as 50 organizations). This is an outgrowth of the liberal refugee policies and generous social welfare programs for which Canada is known around the world. . . . Many of these refugees arrive in Canada without documentation, or with forged or counterfeit documents, making it nearly impossible to verify a person's true identity. Prior to November 2001, none of these people were screened for criminal, terrorism or other concerns unless they requested permanent residency in Canada."


. . . ."Perhaps the most notorious of the cases (and certainly the most controversial) involving Canada were the twin bombings of Air India Flights 182 and 301, carried out by Babbar Khalsa in 1985. The bomb on Flight 182 exploded over the Atlantic Ocean and killed all 329 people aboard; the bomb placed on Flight 301 exploded on the ground at Narita Airport in Japan, killing two baggage handlers. There were several arrests in each case but only one man, Inderjit Singh Reyat, was ever convicted. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison on charges related to the Narita bombing in 1991; in 2001, he was charged and pleaded guilty to his role in the Flight 182 bombing, for which he received an additional five-year sentence. As part of the plea agreement, Reyat was expected to testify in the trial of two other Flight 182 suspects. However, he later claimed he could not remember anything, and the suspects were acquitted in March 2005."


We've had more Islamic terrosists come to the US from Canada than have come from Mexico.

Of course, maybe the Canadians should also be concerned "aboot" extremists coming from the US into Canada. If so, you should put both of your border security guards on high alert.

I'm thinking some of y'all get a tingly feeling when you see all that action on the map of the US, even if it is just "suspicious activity" by somebody's definition (could be Mooninites) or lame ass fake bomb threats same as we've had as long as I can remember back to my childhood. Some are even just "suspicious packages" getting checked out. All that action on the map, though, cool explosions, sure looks fearsome (America is under siege!) and makes you feel righteous. Bring em on! Keep fighting the fight!

America, F * c k Yeah!!!
