If you haven’t been glued to the news this morning, you need to hop on that.  British authorities have foiled a major terrorist plot to blow up planes mid-air en-route from the UK to America.  Both British and US airlines were targeted. 

This should serve as a reminder to everyone that we are at war and our enemies are creative in their attacks on our country and our allies.  Luckily, this plot was foiled before anyone was hurt.  It is a success that shows the importance of a strong defense system against terrorism, so that we may prevent terrorist attacks before they are executed.  It also shows the need for the US to continue to cooperate with our allies such as the UK if we are going to win the war the on terror.
