so you don’t end up fighting a terrorist with a Narwhal tusk, especially when he appears to have an explosive suicide vest on. BTW, the guy wielding the tusk is a Polish chef.  Don’t piss off the Poles.

or just industrial sabotage by a disgruntled employee?  Either way this guy needs to end up in jail for a long time.

It has been said that the for all the technological advantages of the advanced Western powers, they are ill equipped to fight modern terrorism that uses non-traditional methods and uses the structure of the open, Western welfare state societies against themselves.  Here and here are articles on an interesting exploration of the weaknesses of the Western welfare state.  The United Kingdom has had a similar issue for years.  To win the war against the barbarians, Western societies must find a way to deal with these asymmetric threats.  War isn’t just about guns and tanks and airplanes anymore.

This would be national news is the individuals on both sides were on the other sides of the political spectrum.

Is this news?

I wonder if we will see this anywhere but in the NY Post?  I suspect that if one of the suspects had ties to the Tea Party rather than OWS, we’d be seeing this on the national news.
