A short history of terrorism attacks involving Canada

A short history of terrorism attacks involving Canada | War on terror | Scoop.it
Canadians have been the targets – and sometimes the perpetrators – of terrorist attacks in the modern era.

Via @NewDayStarts
Matthew Bryan Vos's insight:

Canada has been targeted seven times in acts of terror. To be honest were like the number 1 ally to Canada besides Great Britian. Canada is still standing strong that should show terrorists that we powerful countries do not collapse easily its going to take a lot more to weaken us. Were almost to war even though were going to disarm the chemical weapons in syira.  But were almost there before we start unleashing our military strength on them. Canada, United states and the U.K. combine forces it should put a red flag in their sights that we're not a weak striking force.

I think that it is odd that they use terrorism in Canada. Canada doesn't really do anything bad. They are a peaceful country. Why Canada?
sebastian Martin's curator insight, October 3, 2013 1:15 PM

Canada has also had terrorist attacks. This article started with the year of 1985 and goes up until 2013. In 2006, 18 men were arrested for trying to kill the prime minister and bomb other buildings. In my opinion, I think that they should be punished the most possible.

I agree, I think that terrorist should not get away with their unruly acts and that the U.S and it's allies combined are very powerful but a war wont solve all the problems going on with terrorists.

Two held over Canada 'terror plot'

Two held over Canada 'terror plot' | War on terror | Scoop.it
Two people are arrested in British Columbia and accused of plotting to plant a bomb outside the British Columbia legislature on Canada's national day.

Via @NewDayStarts
Matthew Bryan Vos's insight:

Well it's good that they were caught and the bombs were disarmed and under police authority because the bombs had nuts and bolts that could kill or serverely hurt someone if the bombs went off. Now the two bombers were not linked to any terrorist groups but were influenced by the movements. They will foolow sentencing later in court

Israel and U.S. Conduct Missile Test in Mediterranean

Israel and U.S. Conduct Missile Test in Mediterranean | War on terror | Scoop.it
The testing of the Sparrow target missile caused concern in Russia and Syria, given the tensions over a possible American military strike on Syria.

Matthew Bryan Vos's insight:

Well I think it was a good idea to conduct a missile test because with Syira using chemical weapons things can get real ugly real fast it could be used in their country or possibly they could mount a chemical attack on us which will put us at the Defcon 5.  We will go to war when it reaches Defcon 5. But we have got russia and and syira's attention so maybe they will understand that we are ready to strike when needed to.

I don't think this was a good idea. This could have set Russia or Syria off and made them attack us. This was a very bad idea by the U.S.
Jerod Garland's comment, October 16, 2013 9:06 PM
Do you think being allies with Israel helps our reputation in the Middle Eastern world? Should we worry about our reputation at all? Good scoop, Matt.
Matthew Bryan Vos's comment, October 17, 2013 9:19 AM
Well if we decided to strike Syria it would be good to test the missiles but if we could work out a plan with russia to be on better terms with them so we would not have to get hostile

Chomsky: 9/11 Is the Basis for 'Obama's Massive Terrorist War'

Chomsky: 9/11 Is the Basis for 'Obama's Massive Terrorist War' | War on terror | Scoop.it

Noam Chomsky, the world-renowned political dissident, linguist and author, weighs in on today’s 12th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, attacks and how the civil war in Syria appears destined to permanently break the country apart. "[9/11] was very significant, a major terrorist act, thousands of people killed," Chomsky says. "It’s the first time since the War of 1812 that U.S. territory had been attacked. The United States has had remarkable security, and therefore was, aside from the horrible atrocity, a very significant, historical event. And it changed attitudes and policies in the United States quite considerably.

Matthew Bryan Vos's insight:

Since 9/11 we have became more aware of terroist attacks and attempted acts of terror. We have been able to take a punch in the heart which really almost made us crumble as a country and as a economic and military power house. But we counter reacted like Chomsky said we have changed completly. We may have been vaunerable in the past but now we have become one of the strongest military powers in the world.

Iran denies Canada terror plot link

Iran denies Canada terror plot link | War on terror | Scoop.it
Tehran denies any links to al-Qaeda after Canada arrests two men it says were planning to derail a train with support from militant elements in Iran.

Via @NewDayStarts
Matthew Bryan Vos's insight:

I don't think Iran can deny this because this plot takes a lot of planning and precise execution in a small window time. The people who were conducting the plot were not canaidian citizens and that set's an alarm off for the Canaidian police and higher authorties that something is not right and there is terrorist actvity going on. Canaidian officals say " Iran is the most significant threat to global peace and security in the world today".

@NewDayStarts's curator insight, April 23, 2013 12:31 PM

Iran has denied any links to two men arrested in Canada on suspicion of planning an attack on a train.

Canadian officials said an attack had been planned with support from al-Qaeda elements in Iran, although there was no evidence of state sponsorship.

Chiheb Esseghaier, 30, and Raed Jaser, 35, are due to appear in court on Tuesday for a bail hearing.

Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said to suggest a link between al-Qaeda and Iran was "ridiculous".

"This is the most hilarious thing I've heard in my 64 years," Mr Salehi told the Iranian Isna news agency.

"Terrorist acts and transnational organized crime, including arms and drug trafficking, threaten stability.
Matthew Bryan Vos's insight:

I really like how were thinking and contriving on a plan to stop terrorism on the contient and having all the leaders there to work out issues and comprimise on a solution. realisticly we would have no clue going to war with africa on our side and with arms and drug trafficking involved it would have us spreaded out very far with all the cartel's and the dealers it would create chaos in finding terroists with the dealers in the trafficking situation.

The Miranda Warning

The British government and police haven't labeled Miranda a terrorist.
Matthew Bryan Vos's insight:

Well I agree with how are policy is that we can,t call someone a terrorist becasue they don,t try to intimidate the public or by race or religion. But Miranda almost leaked information on how we can get information from mail, cell phones and other and etc.. He was labeled under a act of terroism which if the documents were given to terrorist which could have helped them. Scotland yard said that there would be a investigation and copy inspect and distribute Mr.Mirandas files. This can help us stop acts of terrorism in its feet if we can stop people like Miranda for leaking highly classified sensative information

Well we are on the brink of war right now. How can terrorists think they can keep terrorizing us and get away with it? To be honest they are asking for it and were going to be really upset and show them that we will stand up to them with our military strength.
