You Can't Rely On Amateurs

Listen, you want a mosque blown up? Don't be passive/agressive and repeat a message like "boy, it sure would be good if that Mosque wasn't there in Dearborn. Yep, sure would be good." Because you're only going to attract talent like this.

A California man is in jail on a terrorism charge after he was arrested in Dearborn for allegedly trying to blow up the biggest mosque in metro Detroit, Dearborn officials said today.

The suspect was arrested in the parking lot of the Islamic Center of America in Dearborn on Monday, while hundreds were inside the mosque that sits along Ford Road, police said. He came to the city because of its large Arab-American and Muslim population, police said.

Roger Stockham, 63, was arraigned Wednesday on one count on a threat of terrorism or false report and one count of explosive-possession of bombs with unlawful intent for possession of Class C fireworks, Dearborn Police said.

...Dearborn Mayor Jack O'Reilly said the suspect "had a lot of high-end fireworks."

"It was the max you could buy legally."

They were not "conventional explosives," O'Reilly said. "But at that level, those things misused are terrific weapons."
No, they're TERRIBLE weapons. You can get much better for less money if you know what you're doing. But people who know what they're doing have tight schedules and can't just go out for a weekend on a lark to blow stuff up. They need a little cash up front.

Listen, don't be fooled by Al Queada. They get one thing right and everybody is terrified. But most of the time it's just a buncha idiots and they fail. Don't use that model, if you want to get anything done. Ailes needs to go with one of the classicists, like Hitler or at least Juan Peron. Half-measures don't accomplish nothin, Roger.
