Better safe than sorry?


Sadly, the Olympics have not been free from military attacks. (some people call them attacks from "militants")

Seems Londoners are not at all thrilled with the extra security.

How thrilled would you be with an anti-aircraft missile installment on your roof or one of those missile robot contraptions on your front lawn? (Now, if they planted some nice geraniums around them, that might be another story)

A Conundrum writ large ...


IF The Olympics should be a Target of a Mass Terror Attack (recall the London Underground Attack not that long ago), THEN there would be HUGE Complaints, "Why did The Government allow this to happen ... ???  Why DIDN'T they "Beef-up" Security for us ... ???"


"There's just no pleasing some People ... "


 -- The Lord Jesus of Nazareth, in Luke 7:31-35
