    I personally think this is being all blown out of proportion by the governments involved. Been too long since we have had a big terrorist threat. Only the ones involved will know. Probably only 1 person who was going to try this (remember richard reid? Oh my god, there are 20 people who are going to blow up bombs in their shoes on planes) and its being exaggerated.

    Thats all I have to say or else it will wind up in a political discussion.

    well if it is only 1 then there are going to be 20 upset people as they arrested over 20. As a frequent flier between JFK and Heathrow, better safe than sorry I say.

    I agree better be safe than sorry, and I guess what I am trying to say actually is aimed towards the government and the media both, equally responsible. Our goverment and media, especially recently, has gained a reputation for blowing things way out of proportion and finding out later that they were causing more chaos than necessary.

    I think it all started on 9/11. Remember when they were reporting "Cars are blowing up outside of the State Department!" "Cars are being blown up outside of the White House".

    And now whenever there is a shooting, like say like the one in Washington State a few weeks ago, all of a sudden they shoot up the level saying "We know there are more people out there getting ready to do this! Lock down the hatches!"

    Oh, and my favorite is like what happened the other day ago. The FBI says "We have 10 students of Arab descent who were supposed to report to college for english classes and they didn't. Several members of the 9/11 attacks were supposed to be reporting to college for english classes. But we don't consider these people dangerous". Well NICE....Then why even mention that several members of the 9/11 attack mirror these people?

    The government and the media both love to instill fear into the public. They think it helps make them stronger, which in all actuallity it probably does. I am not making light of 9/11 or anything of that nature. I am just getting tired of our government jerking us and spinning us around like we are on the "wheel o' barf" at an amusement park.

    Sorry to thread jack...

    Once again another bunch of fear mongering floated by those in power. Bad thing is the problems TSA is going to have disposing of all the liquids. Not to mention that if one of the "HIGHLY" trained rollie pollies were to actually come upon liquid explosive; it would be to late. Their exposure of such contraband would immediately cause the owner to react. I could go on all night but I won't. My 2 Cents!

    Re: Important info for Travelers

    That's what I want to know because next summer I am flying to camp (I mentioned this in another thread but I'll repeat it here), and I carry lotion, hair spray, etc in bottles, nail clippers, etc. If I am without that stuff I don't know where I'm gonna get it.

    Wow - yeah it is bad. However, I agree with most it's better safe than sorry. I think that the US has a fair number of terrorist on our soil just waiting on the right time to act. I hope they never get the chance again to do what they did on 9/11

    Re: Important info for Travelers

    personally i thinks these new rules are a bit to much. I mean what now when you travel you need to buy all your personally care products and what not when you get to your destination. not as bad for guys but what about our wives, its going to cost hundreds extra when they have to go buy all new perfume, body sprays, make-up and whatever else they need...not going to take it any further, you get my point
