How to Prevent Glasgow Airport-Like Attacks – BOLLARDS

Glasgow-like attacks are preventable

MEASURES IN PLACE OR ARE PLANNED AT AREA AIRPORTS

Could a bomb-laden car ram into a crowded U.S. airport terminal like the attempted recent terror attack in Glasgow, Scotland?

Security analysts say “yes” in most U.S. airports, including all three major Bay Area airports. On the other hand, the same security measure that helped thwart the Glasgow attack can and in most cases will be put into place on this side of the Atlantic.

“We still have time; we don’t have to wait until this comes to us,” said Texas-based security consultant Issy Boim, who helped develop El Al Israel Airlines’ legendary security regime. “We need to think in a different way and actually find the right solution. In this type of business, even if it’s not popular and the threat exists, you cannot ignore the threat.”

The way to stop flaming explosive-laden cars from slamming into a crowded terminal, as the driver of an SUV attempted to do June 30 in Glasgow, is to put up sturdy posts called bollards.

Bollards already protect a variety of iconic buildings such as San Francisco’s iconic Transamerica Pyramid and government office buildings. They’re already partly in use at San Francisco International Airport, and officials are planning to install them at Oakland International Airport and in new and remodeled terminals at Mineta San Jose International Airport as well.

The often decoratively embellished posts reportedly kept attackers from ramming the crowded Glasgow terminal, and their usefulness is well-known in security circles.

At Glasgow last week:

An off duty policeman sprays water at a burning bomber (Dr. Khalid Ahmed) who tried to ignite explosives at Glasgow Airport – note the bollards.

Flap says install them. Assume the worst……..it certainly saved the folks in Glasgow.

UK Terror Watch: Dr Bilal Abdullah Charged in Glasgow Car Bombings

Dr. Bilal Abdulla arrested at the Glasgow Airport bombing

londonGlasgow_Airport_ter_183786a

Dr. Bilal Talal Abdul Samad Abdulla, an Iraqi from Baghdad who arrived in the UK in April 2006.  Dr. Bilal Abdulla has been transferred to Paddington Green high-security prison in London as the investigation continues

Man charged with London and Glasgow bomb plots

Iraqi doctor Bilal Abdullah tonight became the first person to be charged over the London and Glasgow car bomb attacks.

Abdullah, who was arrested after a flaming Jeep was driven into the doors of the arrivals hall of Glasgow Airport on Saturday, will appear before magistrates in Westminster, central London, tomorrow.

He was charged tonight with conspiring to cause explosions, Scotland Yard said.

Abdullah, 27, was working as a doctor at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley, Scotland, before his arrest.

He was transferred to London’s Paddington Green police station for questioning before being charged tonight on advice from the Crown Prosecution Service.

Two trainee doctors, aged 25 and 28, arrested at the same hospital, are among a total of seven people to have been arrested in the UK over the plot.

Send him away for a life term.

He and his Al Qaeda cohorts will wish they would have chosen self-detonation rather than cell phone remote detonation after their Muslim friends get a hold of them in a British prison.

Didn’t they want to martyr themselves?

Nah, probably not

The CPS said Abdullah was being charged under 1883 Explosive Substances Act.

The charge, which covers a period from January 1 to July 1 this year, alleges that he “unlawfully and maliciously conspired with others to cause explosions of a nature likely to endanger life or cause serious injury to property in the United Kingdom”.

It carries a maximum sentence of life.

Abdullah wont last that long……

Cox & Forkum: What’s in a Name

From the Daily Express: Brown: Don’t say terrorists are Muslims

Gordon Brown has banned ministers from using the word “Muslim” in connection with the terrorism crisis.The Prime Minister has also instructed his team – including new Home Secretary Jacqui Smith – that the phrase “war on terror” is to be dropped.

The shake-up is part of a fresh attempt to improve community relations and avoid offending Muslims, adopting a more “consensual” tone than existed under Tony Blair. …

Mr Brown’s spokesman acknowledged yesterday that ministers had been given specific guidelines to avoid inflammatory language. “There is clearly a need to strike a consensual tone in relation to all communities across the UK,” the spokesman said. “It is important that the country remains united.”

As Flap said the first time:

Right…..cover up the fact that the perps were not Islamic extremists. And, of course blame Tony Blair and President Bush.

How stupid and politically correct can these MORONS be?

UK Terror Watch: 45 Muslim Doctors Planned USA Terror

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Al Qaeda, Glasgow, Global War on Terror, London, Terrorists, United Kingdom

Cyber-terrorists: Tariq Daour, Younis Tsouli and Waseem Mughal

45 Muslim doctors planned US terror raids

A group of 45 Muslim doctors threatened to use car bombs and rocket grenades in terrorist attacks in the United States during discussions on an extremist internet chat site.

Police found details of the discussions on a site run by one of a three-strong “cyber-terrorist” gang.

They were discovered at the home of Younis Tsouli, 23, Woolwich Crown Court in south-east London heard.

One message read: “We are 45 doctors and we are determined to undertake jihad and take the battle inside America.
“The first target which will be penetrated by nine brothers is the naval base which gives shelter to the ship Kennedy.” This is thought to have been a reference to the USS John F Kennedy, which is often at Mayport Naval Base in Jacksonville, Florida.

The message discussed targets at the base, adding: “These are clubs for naked women which are opposite the First and Third units.”

It also referred to using six Chevrolet GT vehicles and three fishing boats and blowing up petrol tanks with rocket propelled grenades.

Investigators have found no link between the Tsouli chat room and the group of doctors and medics currently in custody over attempted car bomb attacks in London and Glasgow.

Interesting that these Islamic cyber-terrorists are internet talking about doctors commiting violent Jihad just as the London/Glasgow doctors attempt car bombing a London nightclub and a Scottish Airport.

Send these Islamofascists to prison and start BETTER controlling immigration including student visas.

Is there any doubt that Western security has broken down? Or perhaps the West is being to politically correct in dealing with countries that foster/sanction or excuse state sponsored terror on non-Muslim countries?

The UK was lucky this past weekend.

The next time the UK and America might NOT be so fortunate.

Dr. Kahlid Ahmed has been identified as the driver of the Glasgow Car Bomb

Iowa Hawk: Well, That Didn’t Work Out So Great

Iowahawk Guest Commentary
By Kahlid Ahmed, MD
Board Certified Gastroenterologist and former Jihad Associate, al Qaeda UK

Ever have “one of those days?” Sure, all of us go through the occasional rough patch, but I swear there are times when I think Allah must really have it in for me. I mean, I know the “Big Guy” is supposed to have a sense of humor, but do I always have to be the punchline?

Take for example this last week. A few mates and I had been planning a big martyrdom weekend for quite a while; it’s something we first began discussing a few years ago in medical school back in Amman. We were sitting around the dorm eating pizza, cramming for a big anatomy final, when Ali said “you know, after graduation, we should get together for something really big.” We talked about a fishing trip to Canada or something, but most of the guys thought that sounded pretty boring. Abdul suggested a golf weekend in Cancun, but the all-inclusives there can get pretty pricey in-season. Hassan (who’s really into motorcycles) suggested renting Harleys and going to Sturgis for the Biker Rally, but we heard that crowd can get pretty rowdy.

Anyhoo, Achmed finally says, “how about packing cars with explosives and killing hundreds of random infidels in a coordinated series of gigantic fireballs?” And we’re like, fuckin’ A! Not only would it be an awesome bonding experience (with plenty of Paradise poontang, LOL), we would be doing a valuable community service. Okay, so we high-fived and made a solemn promise that we’d target two years after graduation for the big weekend prank blowout.

I know how it usually goes with these kinds of fraternity things; what with starting up a medical practice, honor killing obligations, and starting a family, it’s easy to lose touch with the old school buddies. But this thing — our thing — was serious, you know? Thanks to email we were able to keep in touch and keep the plan going. As luck would have it, we all won Achmedinijad scholarships to do our residencies in England for the National Health Service. We got our families together most every weekend for backyard cookouts and self-flagellation and TV football matches. Afterwards me and the other guys would slip out to the garage for cigars, and to pack shrapnel.

So okay, the big weekend arrives, and the guys come over to my place bright and early, everybody’s jazzed about rolling up some kufr carnage. All the propane tanks and propellant and nail cannisters are ready to go. I look at Ali and say, “okay mate, back up your car to the garage and I’ll start loading it up.” He gets this dumbstruck look on his face and says, “my car? I thought Hassan was going to do the martyrdom.” And then Hassan does a massive spit-take with his tea, and he’s like, “whoa dude, I rigged the cell phones, I didn’t agree to blow up. I thought Mohammed was going to do the blowing up.” Then Mohammed’s like, “don’t look at me, pal, I thought I was just providing the spiritual guidance. Plus my car’s in the shop for transmission work.” From there it just descended into this big shouting match. Holy frickin’ prophet, two years of planning this prank and now everybody wants to pussy out on the actual martyrdom.

Long story short, we decided to draw straws. And guess who wins? Yep, yours truly, good old sucker Khalid, the same guy with a pile of charge card receipts for petrol and propane and hardware. The same guy who ended up having to host two thirds of the martyrdom planning parties at HIS house, because his good old college “pals” always have some convenient excuse about “kitchen remodeling” or “MI6 surveillance,” and never lift a finger to help clean up the empty bottles or paper plates or the C5 mess. Well, you know what they say: no good deed goes unpunished. Then the other short straw get pulled by Bilal, and I’m like, oh, great. Now I’ll be banging some celestial virgin with that wanker looking over my shoulder.

READ IT ALL…… 

Thankfully Dr. you had a BAD DAY……

UK Terror Watch: London Car Bombs Failed Because of Medical Syringe

Posted 4 CommentsPosted in Al Qaeda, Glasgow, Global War on Terror, London, Terrorists, United Kingdom

A Mercedes car, which contained a suspected car bomb, is loaded onto a removals truck in Haymarket Street, near Piccadilly, in central London, last Friday.

U.K. Terror Plot — Why the Bombs Failed

The London bomb plot allegedly planned by a cell of doctors failed early last Friday morning because a medical syringe used as part of the firing mechanism caused a malfunction, ABC News has learned.

According to nonclassified documents reviewed by ABC News, and confirmed by multiple sources, both mobile telephones initiated firing mechanisms rigged inside a Mercedes E 300 parked several yards from the front door of Tiger Tiger nightclub failed despite multiple calls to the cell phones designed to remotely trigger the devices.

The Mercedes in which the car bomb was found. Gas cylinders can be seen at the rear of the vehicle; in the back seat were petrol canisters and there were also nails in the car.

And the second car bomb also failed apparently due to the same malfunction. The second bomb was meant for the fleeing club members from the first bomb or rescue workers.

The same doctors who perpetrated these car bombs the next day (14 hours later) attempted to ram their SUV laden with the same fuel-air bombs into the Glasgow Airport.

The Brits were lucky and especially lucky were the patrons of the Tiger Tiger.

Thank God for that alert ambulance crew.
