Heathrow security on “high alert” – can the TSA be far behind?

Well, since the UK is no better than the US when it comes to civil liberties, we can expect this kind of thing to be trotted out every now and again — which it is.

Today’s “news” is to Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid! Same old same old, you say? Not quite. This time, we are to be afraid of . . .

Boobie bombs!

Yes, gentle reader, boobie bombs. Then again, we’ve also been warned for years now about the pervasive threat of exploding undies.

Do you worry that the thousands of silicone breasts that surround you might be explosive? Do you cower in fear every time you see a well-endowed woman who looks a little . . . well . . . unnatural? Do you suspect that the many women who are breast cancer survivors and have had reconstructive surgery are secretly harboring flaming bombaloos?

Well, you should! At least that’s according to the latest “terror alert” in the UK. (Yes, I had to reread it, too, to make sure it wasn’t dated April 1st.)

The magic words: We have a “credible threat.”

Oh, no, Virginia, say it ain’t so!

Wonder how many women are getting their breasts pawed at Heathrow today? I bet the TSA is salivating, and desperately hoping that John Pistole will declare a “credible threat” from exploding boobies in the US, too. Why should the Brits have all the fun?

    Better watch out for that batman cell phome bomb inside a womans chest. The US government even hires fiction writers to come up with bomb ideas. Look it up. People choose to be afraid.

    Sickening. Body cavities and implants of ALL KINDS! Liquids soaked into clothing! My, how alarmist. If this threat is so credible why do they use words like “could be”, “may have”, “perhaps”, “possibility” and so on. I shudder to think of the extra screening that innocent women will be subjected to because of this.

    No one has complained? I call shenanigans!

    Aside: Body scanners are not good at identifying things outside the body. They detect “anomalies”, not specific items, which lead to enhanced pat-downs.

  • I want to say I’m shocked, but I’m not. This is entirely expected. My country has lost its mind to the same degree America has lost hers.

    Where, oh where, are the Monty Python guys when you need them?
