Unlikely UK terror alert makes news headlines around the world but no evidence is offered

The British regime has claimed that a terrorist attack was prevented yesterday, and this claim has been among the top news headlines around the world, ever since the news broke.

No evidence or specific details whatsoever have been offered to support the official story, but this obstacle has not deterred the mass media from engaging in wild and sensational speculation to fill the vacuum that might otherwise have been occupied by news and facts.

We now know that the detonator was either "an iPod, digital watch or mobile phone" or any other "electronic device". The raw "explosives" could be either "colourless, pale yellow or brown" or any other colour depending on what explosive was used, and could have been a "liquid" or "powder" disguised as "baby milk", "fizzy drinks", "baby formula", "medicines", or "food". The "ingredients" for the explosives could have included either "fuel" and "fertilizer" or anything else that an "Islamic fascist" could "manufacture" in his "kitchen". Indeed anything at all that any "expert" willing to speak to a "journalist" can think-up becomes newsworthy.

So what type of bomb, or equipment, exactly, if any, has been found in the possession of the 21 Muslims arrested so far? There is no doubt about the nature or existence of the mass-produced weapons and ammunition which have been used to kill civilians all week long in Lebanon, Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan, by used by Israel, the US, and UK .

The "scale" of the "prevented" attack, had it ever occurred, is said to be "unimaginable", though politicians, officials, and journalists have succeeded in imagining both the mechanism and effect of the plot in vivid and specific detail, from the "iPod" detonator to the final death-toll which probably would have "surpassed" 9/11, as extensively reported around the world.

The authorities in the UK have allowed flights to continue today, despite the "unimaginable" danger. British Airways warns that "some" flights to the US may be disrupted, but their online arrivals/departures feature shows most flights to the US departing on schedule, including the next flight from Heathrow to Washington (flight BA0229 at 1300 BST).

The terror alert clearly serves the propaganda requirements of allies of the British regime and the regime its self, not least by perpetuating the myth that we in the west are all engaged in a "war" against "terrorism", therefore any strategy is justified.

Along with related reports and commentary, the story has replaced escalating Israeli war crimes and atrocities in Lebanon and Palestine, continuing with full support from the US and UK, as the big news topic of the day.


The Guardian, "Officials see plot as worst threat since 9/11", 11 August 2006.,,1842374,00.html
    Officials see plot as worst threat since 9/11
    The White House framed the apparently thwarted terrorist plot as a direct attack on the US yesterday, as America responded to the news from London with a nationwide tightening of airport security.
    With officials describing the plot as the greatest terrorist threat to the US since September 11 2001, George Bush called the arrests a "stark reminder" that the country was "at war with Islamic fascists who will use any means to destroy those of us who love freedom, to hurt our nation". Speaking in Wisconsin, the president said: "It is a mistake to believe there is no threat to the United States of America."
    Delays grew at airports after homeland security officials banned all liquids and gels from aircraft cabins except for baby formula and medicines. The official terror threat level was raised throughout the aviation system, requiring airlines to provide US authorities in advance with the name of every passenger travelling from Britain.
Federal security officials were focusing on John F Kennedy airport in New York, Dulles airport outside Washington, and Los Angeles International airport as the probable destinations of the planes involved, they told state-level officials privately. A spokesman described officers at the US Northern Command in Colorado as "a little bit more vigilant" than normal.
    Showing a markedly more relaxed attitude than British authorities, Mr Chertoff said US passengers should "go about their plans confidently, while maintaining vigilance in their surroundings, and exercising patience with screening and security officials".

BBC News, "Papers pore over 'bomb plot'", 11 August 2006.
    Friday's papers reflect on what they believe are the details of the suspected plot to blow up passenger planes.
    Under the front page headline "Bottle Bombers", the Sun says suicide bombers wanted to detonate liquid explosives to kill 4,000 people.
    The Daily Express reports that it is thought the suspects were within 48 hours of carrying out their suicide missions before being foiled.
    [These British examples are typical of coverage by corporate and state news sources in western and allied countries.]

The Guardian, "Chemical compounds most likely to be chosen by would-be bombers", 11 August 2006.,,1842283,00.html
    Few details have been released about the exact nature of the bomb components in the alleged plot, but experts said last night that several types of liquid explosives could have been involved. [To be precise, no details or evidence whatsoever have been offered, and the entire story appears to be wild and varied speculation dressed as "news", as we often observe in war-time propaganda, from the "colourless, pale yellow or brown" appearance of the explosives, to the "iPod, digital watch or mobile phone" used as a detonator.]
    Security services sources have suggested that the explosive devices would have involved a liquid, a powder and an electronic detonator. The detonator would provide the energy to set off a reaction and could be concealed in an iPod, digital watch or mobile phone.
    Hans Michaels, an explosives expert at Imperial College London, said nitrate and nitro containing compounds such as nitroglycerin would be relatively easy for a kitchen chemist to manufacture using fertilisers as a raw material.
    "It can be colourless, pale yellow or brown, but you can add colour to make it resemble anything you like, such as fizzy drinks or even baby food," he said.
    Another possibility would be the industrial solvent and fuel nitromethane, which is fairly easy to obtain because it is used to fuel model aeroplanes and racing cars. To work as a bomb, nitromethane would need to be combined with an oxidiser such as ammonium nitrate (fertiliser).

The Guardian, "'A plot to commit murder on an unimaginable scale'", 11 August 2006.,,1842272,00.html
    British suicide bombers were within days of blowing up 12 passenger jets above five US cities in an unprecedented terrorist attack designed to commit "mass murder on an unimaginable scale", counterterrorism sources claimed last night. [In fact the source of this highly-quoted propaganda soundbite was the deputy police chief of London, to whom the quote is attributed later in the same article.

[The potential "scale" of the attack is said to be "unimaginable", but officials, politicians, and journalists have succeeded in imagining the mechanism and effect of the plot in vivid and specific detail, from the "iPod" detonator to the final death-toll which would have "surpassed" 9/11, all extensively reported, and cited in this very article.]
    US and British counterterrorism officials claimed the men, the majority British Muslims of Pakistani descent, were going to disguise liquid explosive as bottles of soft drink and carry them in their hand luggage on to US-bound planes leaving British airports.
    When the jets were in midair over American cities, they planned to combine the explosives and detonate them using an electric charge from an iPod, the security services believe. BA flights were among the targets. US officials said the bombers had been seeking to hit New York, Washington, San Francisco, Boston and Los Angeles. Other airlines targeted were thought to be United, American and Continental.
    Loss of life might have surpassed the 2,700 killed in the attack on the twin towers in New York five years ago. "This was our 9/11," a British security source said.
    The Metropolitan police deputy commissioner, Paul Stephenson, said: "This was intended to be mass murder on an unimaginable scale."
    Twenty-four people were in custody last night after police raided addresses in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, in Birmingham, and in north and east London. Among those arrested was a Muslim bookkeeper from Walthamstow. Another of the alleged plotters was understood to work at Heathrow.
    Although security sources said they believed they had arrested all the known main suspects, police were last night still hunting a number of others thought to be involved in the plot, a senior counterterrorism official told the Guardian.

The Guardian, "Concern and relief mixed with fear and cynicism", 11 August 2006.,,1842278,00.html
    British Muslims reacted with a mixture of concern and defensiveness to the latest terror alert and arrests. Raw memories of the Forest Gate fiasco and last year's Stockwell shooting tempered their response.
    Sir Iqbal Sacranie, of the Muslim Council of Britain, said: "We applaud the action of the police in taking appropriate action to avert a tragedy but what is really required now is to be aware of the appropriate facts on which their action was taken. There is a danger of stigmatising a whole community.
    "What I think is, we have to be extremely cautious about the measures being taken. People are cynical about the timing and critical about the way this is being done. People are supportive of the need for security in our country, but they're fearful of their front door being kicked down by the police at 3 o'clock in the morning."
    Websites yesterday were chattering with distrust of ministers and the government's good faith, and conspiracy theories were already starting to circulate, with frequent mention of previous police actions and resentment that the subsequent release of suspects found innocent achieved less publicity than their original arrests.

BBC News, "UK threat level remains critical", 11 August 2006.
    The UK security threat level is to stay at "critical" following a suspected plot to blow up airliners, Home Secretary John Reid has said.
    Everyone faced the threat and everyone "should respond with a common purpose and common solidarity", Mr Reid said.

BBC News, "At-a-glance: UK airports", 11 August 2006.
    BA said it expected to run 70% of its 400 short haul and domestic flights.

BBC News, "Police probe flights terror plot", 10 August 2006.
    American broadcaster ABC News reported that five more suspects still at large in Britain were being "urgently sought", citing US sources briefed on the plot.

British Airways, "Latest disruption update", 1100 BST, 11 August 2006.
    British Airways, along with all other airlines, has experienced major disruption to its operations at London Heathrow and London Gatwick on Thursday, August 10, due to severe airport congestion following the introduction of new security arrangements.
    British Airways expects to operate the vast majority of its flights on Friday, August 11 but is advising customers to check for the latest flight information  before leaving home and to allow plenty of time for their journey.
    The airline anticipates that it will operate all longhaul flights from London Gatwick and all longhaul flights from London Heathrow with the exception of some [not all] flights to and from the US.
    In addition to these restrictions, the airline has decided that no hand baggage will be allowed in the cabin on inbound British Airways' flights to the UK from the USA to speed up the departure process from the USA.

BBC Breakfast, "Latest advice for air travellers", 11 August 2006.
    If travelling from the UK you should expect long delays today (Friday), but check in as normal and read the full guidelines below to help speed up your check-in


Thomsonfly newsletter email, 2100 hrs BST, 14 August 2006.
    With no flight cancellations and 83% of UK departure flights being delayed by less than one hour, the UK's third largest airline Thomsonfly has operated every flight since Thursday's security announcement, carrying over 175,000 customers. The figures speak for themselves - and our on-time performance is improving every day.
    [In other words, amid all the news headlines about "disruption" every day since Thursday morning, in reality we learn from the UK's third largest airline company reports that no flights were cancelled and only 20% of flights were delayed by more than one hour, which is not an extraordinary period for a flight to be delayed.]

BBC News, "Heathrow threat real says Blunkett", 14 February 2006.
    The home secretary was speaking in the House of Commons after bowing to pressure from opposition parties to deliver a statement on the security operation [when tanks and troops arrived at the airport last year guaranteeing plenty of photos and headlines in the news] at the world's busiest airport.
    Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir John Stevens said it was the largest operation of its kind that police had ever been involved in and he denied it was a propoganda exercise.
