Watch them charge the passenger with something; bet they get a conviction too.

hasn't flown since 1970...since they started violating our search and seizure rights...went to pick up the mother in law in '71 and got violated physically by those idiots at the gate...

won't be flying anymore until the sick fear mongering is over and our rights are given back...

/besides they don't want a dirtbag like me on their planes: i believe in freedoms that are in the constitution that we don't have anymore...

==Predictions==

1) Guy was old or sick, made a mess in the bathroom/on the way to the bathroom, and spent a while cleaning it up. Ceiling tiles were amiss before takeoff and no one had noticed.

2) Guy was of west or south-asian descent, was nervous about flying on account of all the prejudices against several million people who look somewhat like him, and desperately wanted a smoke to calm himself. He was allowed to carry matches onboard, but when he saw the smoke detector in the bathroom, he decided to stand on the toilet and ventilate through a raised ceiling tile.

3) We caught the world's dumbest terrorist.

Now who's taking bets?

Amen, urthen_sak

There's no greater risk of you, or anyone else, blowing up a plane than there is of someone on the street blowing up a restaurant or a bus. If we sacrifice the right to travel with our personal privacy in one scenario, why not another? At the risk of being a knee-jerk libertarian, anyone who still pays for the right to have their persons violated in order to fly is part of the problem.

The french were hamstrung by a military investment strategy that was obsoleted by a new type of warfare, and they were faced with a REAL threat. Being overwhelmed in battle is hardly equivalent to being panty waste sissys that can't cope with the fact that life has 0.01% adversity.

I'm not sure if you're dumb because you think he'll be charged, or because you think he'll be convicted.

Oh no wait, its because you'll never fly again.

You represent the extreme side of the dumb-end of people who point out that injustice happens. Of course it happens. However, you have to follow the stories, presume the system will presume innocence until proven guilty, and most of all ... keep travelling and meeting people until you can count yourself among the people who can consider themselves adequately informed as to how relative the political situation is in your society.

Its farked up, of course. But its also full of people who base their opinions and worldview on events before they actually end. He'll be fine. Unfairly detained, over-reaction, and all that, but to actually form an opinion at this point is the opinion-forming equivient of suffering from premature ejaculation.

I know, its fark and all, but the amount of people who piss their pants when somebody launches a class action lawsuit that is thrown out before it even hits the courts, or when somebody is questioned before they're formally charged to me demontrates an almost unreal denial of a system that *can* be fair. It isn't always, I conceed that. But its a terribly grevious method of forming an opinion on the judicial system. It judges the stage of investigation, not the stage of conclusion.

Tell you what; when hes charged and conviced for doing absolutely nothing, *then* take this article as an example of the judicial system gone wrong. Until then, lets agree its an example of people acting under duress of a fear mongering culture. You probably know what fear mongering is; some people who succumb to it have been lead to believe that their society, government, and judicial system is inches from becoming a full blown police state.

I think I'll call shinanigans on this, it was because France didnt take any action, along with Britan, when Germany decided to re-arm itself under Hitler. This emboldened Germany to then break the Treaty of Versailles without any ramifications. In 1938(I dont recall the exact date)Russia, Germany, Britain, France, and Italy met in Munich to decide upon actions to take against Germany on actions againsts Czechoslovakia(had to look that one up, Im a terrible speller:) The Allies decided to do nothing against Germany and allows them to continue un-abated with their millitary developments. All this is important because it directly leads to Frances surrender, not because of some bold, but failed millitary action, but because of Allied incompetence, but mainly France and Britons unwillingness to do anything that directly lead to WWII and then onto Frances surrender.

How dare you suggest that France was not a victim of its own disposition. How dare you suggest that France, and by extention, the rest of the world does not live in a 'just world' where supposedly people, and nations, get what they deserve. We must misremember the alamo!

I am utterly convinced that if justice did actually prevail the world as we know it will end, not in some apocolyptical holocost, but with a noise sounding somewhat similar to a fart and then nothing.

I love how the article claims the plane was "forced to land"

The pilot chose to land. There was no gun at his head, nor was the plane forced down by mechanical problems. My bet is that the ceiling panels were displaced beforehand but nobody noticed. I've seen some really poorly maintained cabins with things like over-seat lights with missing plastic covers, broken hinges on overhead bins, etc.

This poor bastard will be charged with "tampering" regardless, though, just so the airline can save face. Then the charges will quietly be dropped later, when nobody is looking... as long as the guy agrees not to sue them for the hell of having been threatened with PMITA prison.

Oh my. Well, without bringing up the history of european politics and strife. The idea that war is a last resort, born from the nightmares leading up to the treaty of westphalia. Do you even understand the dollar value of the maginot line? The single most impressive fortification of its time for the most part bankrupted the military. How many billion francs? The point is, is that france wasn't derelict in any way. THey were merely beaten. Quarterbacking the decisions after the fact means nothing. You either judge the situation on its merits or you dont.

Would you call the Americans at the kasserine pass cowardly?

Great, next time I got a killer case of the runs on a plane, I'll just let the load loose in my seat. No mystery as to what I'm up to. You'll just wonder why the hell i did it.

On the other hand, I'd probably be branded a terrorist who released a "biological weapon" into the cabin and exposed a dozen to liquid bombardment and 50-100 to aerial contamination. Can you really win?

2006-08-20 03:52:02 AM
The authorities are just going at this from the "better safe than sorry" viewpoint. If some guy in your flight stays in the bathroom for a long time, then you discover that the ceiling tiles have been moved around (and no, that doesn't happen by accident or on its own), do you continue your flight? No - because about the only way a terrorist -could- theoretically put together a bomb is by spending a large chunk of time in the bathroom, and that's also one of the best places to hide it.

There have been quite a few plane diversions for much more idiotic reasons. I sort of agree on this one.

If I remember my history correctly, wasnt that the one with the US II corps under Ferdendall? Ferdendall was a bafoon who had failed in the eyes of his subordiates and was later replaced by Gen Patton. Cowerdly? No. Stupid? Yes.

All this is important because it directly leads to Frances surrender, not because of some bold, but failed millitary action, but because of Allied incompetence, but mainly France and Britons unwillingness to do anything that directly lead to WWII and then onto Frances surrender.

Go study Verdun and the Somme (there are no American military equivalents) and the total casualties from WW1. Europe was bled white and for what, historians still can't agree. They were pacifist, disilusioned, distrustful of their government's motives, propaganda and largely militarily unprepared and they knew it. US disillusionment with WW1 was just as strong.

You can call France "surrender monkeys cliques" and Britian "appeasers" and second guess their motives after WW2 was concluded but the sacrifices in dead and wounded were anything but cowardly. Here's another obscure historical fact. AFTER Pearl Harbor was attacked a Roper Poll stated that 37% of Americans wanted to stay out of the war and 30% didn't want to do buisness with any war country even on a cash and carry basis. And the Treaty of Versailles, 1919 debacle can be largely placed on Woodrow Wilson's niavete', vanity, incompetence and failure of implementing his Fourteen Points or even tempering Allied vengence.

Naills Ferguson has stated that Britian and the UK even to this day have never recovered from World War One. A far greater calamity in lives lost than WW2 by tens of thousands which explains their lack of military enthuisiasm to subdue Hitler in the 1930's

Barring the fact that I don't think you have any idea what I'm talking about, you admit that I'm right. Thanks. So the french were unable to hold off the germans, that's given. Not because they were cowards, but because they were out maneuvered, in fact like thermopylae the opponent was utterly outclassed.

Do you understand that now? And are you willing to join the rest people who have studied and accepted history for what it is?

but the sacrifices in dead and wounded were anything but cowardly. Agreed.

If France and Briton had upheld the Treaty of Versailles then do you think WWII would have happened?

You do realize the treaty of versailles was the cause of ww2? Right?

Phil Moskowitz
Only, if ONLY they were willing to uphold the Treaty of Versailles then Yes, I will conceed to your points, but because they DIDNT, then no, I do not. They ALLOWED Germany to gain a position of superior armorment. Comeon, how hard would it have been at the time with all the Allies backing them? They totally droped the ball.
 
2006-08-20 04:17:15 AM
No no.. It's like saying that if ONLY the germans had wiped out all the jews, then they'd be able to negotiate a peace with the allies. The fact is, you can design a peace that's untenable. Do you know what I'm saying?
 
2006-08-20 04:20:47 AM
Phil Moskowitz
Yes, I do know that, because the French and the Britons couldnt or I should say wouldnt enforce it that Germany went on building armorments un-abated.
 
2006-08-20 04:22:16 AM
versailles was the worst single threat to peace ever devised. Have you heard of the marshall plan? Do you know what happens to a state that experiences internal collapse?
