The world is holding its breath under the threat that terror attacks, authorized by Osama Bin Laden, may take place in major European airports. The danger is considered to be very real, very credible, and very difficult to prevent.
Clearly, the reason to attack airport terminals is because they're "soft targets;" lots of innocent victims, lots of suitcases in which to conceal guns and grenades, and huge economic impact if people become afraid to travel.
But to try to obscure the unspeakable evil of such an attack, a recent audiotape from Osama Bin Laden says that the terror mastermind is really concerned about Global Warming, and the "great catastrophes to the Islamic world" (such as the flooding in Pakistan) which are supposedly caused by the kinds of energy use (including transportation and manufacturing) that Democrats are also eager to curtail...or at least tax.
And by inference, if terror attacks on airports keep jets from polluting the skies, it will be good for the climate, the Islamic world, the trees, and the forest creatures.
When it comes to combatting so-called global warming, Al Gore is barely tolerable...but blood and gore is unacceptable. As is every day that Osama Bin Laden continues to draw breath.
