There are a couple things that come to mind when I read this:
TORONTO (Reuters) – A group of Canadian residents arrested for “terrorism related offenses” were inspired by al Qaeda, had amassed enough explosives to build huge bombs and were planning to blow up targets in densely populated Ontario, police said on Saturday.
Mike McDonell, assistant commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, said the group had acquired three metric tons of ammonium nitrate — or three times the amount used in the 1995 bombing in Oklahoma City — as they sought to “create explosive devices.”
The first thing I wonder about is will this cause people to walk up any? Or will they just figure, “Oh, it’s our fault for being in the mid-east, if we weren’t there it would have happened.” People can’t seem to realize that the Islamic extremists have been trying to convert the world to Islam by force for several hundred years now. It’s not going to stop anytime soon.
The second thing I wonder about is ammonium nitrate readily available in Canada? If so I wonder if I can pick myself up a 1000 pounds or so for Boomershoot 2010 or whenever it is that I will exhaust my current supply.
