Canadian Terror Plot

Quote:
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."

Police arrested 12 men and five young people. The adults were from Toronto, its western suburb of Mississauga and from Kingston, Ontario, at the eastern edge of Lake Ontario and not far from the border with the United States.

At a news conference announcing the arrests, police showed off a haul they described as bomb-making equipment, including white sacks of fertilizer, a cell phone in a box with wiring, a board apparently used for target practice, a computer hard drive and army fatigues.

"This group posed a real and serious threat," McDonell said. "It had the capacity and intent to carry out attacks. ... The modus operandi is very similar to other attacks that have taken place around the world and other threat of attacks."

He added: "We must remain vigilant. Canada is susceptible to criminal terrorist activity as much as any other country."

Police charged the adults, aged between 19 and 43, and five youngsters under the age of 18, with terrorism-related offenses and they were to appear at a heavily guarded courthouse on Saturday. The building was ringed by police vehicles, and snipers stood guard nearby.

Good grief. I'm glad they got those terrorists before they could wreak any havoc.

This really is a crazy thing for us Canadians... we hear so often of terror overseas, but rarely does something like this strike so close to home. It's a true eye-opener.

One of these days, everyone around the world will realize that these Islamic fanatics hate everyone that disagrees with their various radical brands of religion.

Staying out of Iraq and Afghanistan, supporting Palestinian jihadists against Israel, hating America, it doesn't matter... you are all kafirs, convert or die.

Canada received a wake up call today. It will be interesting to see how it will respond (Patriot Act anyone?)

I wonder why people are saying "how will we respond"

Doesnt this indicate that our system is working. It has been said that the majority of these people are home grown and are of Jamican, Trinadad and African decent. 5 of them are under 18!

Isnt our system working? We caught them.

i hope the american government will take that on board and increase there anti terror stratergies so we dont have another 9/11 or oklahoma incident!

and our british government is bad aswell, did anyone catch the sunday ppl a month or so ago?

a journalist desgised himself as a worker, no ID and walked into the new Wembley stadium, and the new Arsnal football stadiums with no problems, got into the VIP sections etc, and got out without anyone asking him for anything!

imagine if that was filled with people! sheesh!

The U.S. definitely needs to take a look at how anti-terror funds are being distributed. It's impossible to prevent an attack at every important place in America, and it's true that no city or state will EVER be satisfied. But it makes since to direct the majority of funds to the most obvious targets in our biggest cities. I think Homeland Security is failing us on that.

just need to watch some documentaries about 9/11 and it is a perfect example of where the government lacks its common sense, had all these warnings yet nothings done about it, they have all these radical islamics preachign about killing americans yet nothing is done, i remember being in NY in Feb, there were 3 radicals preaching calling us white bastards, one guy from philly started having a go back and the police threatened to arrest the guy from threatening behaviour yet these guys were saying behead the americans and white population etc, its stupid!
