Perhaps this is why police are tareting photographers?

    US 'video terrorist' pair jailed for 17 and 13 years


    Two US men convicted of plotting to aid terrorists by filming
    landmarks and sending the clips abroad have been given lengthy prison
    sentences.

    Ehsanul Islam Sadequee was jailed for 17 years, three years less than
    the prosecution had requested.

    Sadequee, 23, also went to Bangladesh to meet terrorist cells and
    tried to help a Pakistani militant group.

    His friend and co-defendant, 24-year-old Syed Haris Ahmed, got 13
    years in prison and 30 years supervised release.

    I'll bet those same men went to the toilet too, and a number of other
    suspicious things. We should outlaw toilets and anyone with eyes on
    their heads and the ability to send emails to bad people. They couldn't
    have helped the terrorist plot without the ability to go to the toilet;
    they would have exploded & died or at least would have been too grumpy
    to contribute.

    What the hell are you talking about?

    You have missed the point completely!
    That item was run by the Britains Bolshevik Corporation
    to support the Government in harassing photographers.

    I think the UK, the US, and indeed the rest of the world, should just go
    back to the practices used before the Iron Curtain in E. Germany. When all
    shop, street, and town name signs were removed and all maps were destroyed
    due to their own paranoias. Then those nasty terrorists couldn't find
    anything and win their war. Shut down the GPS satellites too just to be
    sure. Might as well shut down all camera manufacturing plants too and make
    it illegal to own all those terrorists' tools (cameras, GPS units, maps,
    phones, etc.). We wouldn't want those nasty terrorists changing life as we
    know it, now, would we. If that happens, controlling the behavior and laws
    of all others through their own insecurities, fears, and paranoias, then
    they've won.

    Ooops too late. You've already lost the war. Yes, you're all precisely that
    stupid and insecure. The more you tighten your laws and change your values
    and behaviors as a response to "terrorist activity" the more they have won.

    Hint: More people die from car accidents every year than all people that
    have died from terrorist activity since the beginning of modern history.
    You have a better chance of being hit by lightning or dying from rabies.
    Put it in perspective you stupid dolts. Politicians are manipulating you
    through your own fears and insecurities to destroy what little freedoms
    that you have left to gain even more control over you. And you all merrily
    and happily jump to their tune.

    have freely, foolishly, and irresponsibly given away--all by your little
    self."

    Why? This is stupid. As they say "only in America could this happen...
    Wel America, China, N.Korea Iran, Israel

    BTW why did they not use google like everyone else.
    So he is a Political prisoner.... Just like in China, Iran, N.Korea....

    This is ridiculous. Any this means any tourist could be arrested and
    imprisoned like in the old Soviet Union or China.

  7. One would think they would have used Google Earth and/or Streetview. Plenty of targets on
    show there.

    We need to get rid of all three Middle Eastern Religions!
    Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

    Though to be fair the worst of the three by a LONG way is Christianity.

    I disagree... People need to believe in "something" If there is no
    religion they invent one. (Lord of the Flies) These days it is pop
    stars, Footballers, "Celebrities" Though with the exception of Fooball
    teams people tend not to go to war over them :)

    On the other hand many of the Old Religions did little or no harm.

    The states that have implemented "No Religion" states have not tended to
    be the nicest places to live. I can understand the logic of the
    intelligent few who decided it but it does not work for the masses.
    Most were a reaction to the excesses of the various Religions they
    through out.

    On the other hand Islam has really only sunk to the depths of
    Christianity recently. Most "Islamic" countries over the centuries were
    more tolerant of other religions than the Christian were.

    Besides you only have to look at Israel to see what happens if you
    surpress a religion. They are one of the most inhuman and murderous
    regimes about and it is all in the cause of religion.

    So Lets kick out the unholy trinity of Judaism, Christianity and Islam
    and have a Traditional winder festival with all the Traditional things
    from the Old Religions.... Holly, Ivy, Mistletoe, Decorated Trees,
    decorated houses, Plum pudding & feasting, St. Nick. And the giving of
    presents (moved back to the original date of the 6th December) etc

    Actually there is virtually nothing in Christmas that is Christian.

    BTW most of the "traditional" Christmas Carols are only 1-200 years
    old... the ones that predated them were not AFAIK exactly "carols" as we
    know them.

  18. As a Christian (and I'm not sure what this discussion is doing on
    photographic ngs) I think the only retort can be from Lincoln
    cathedral...

    T'was ever thus.
    Nice photo, but I'm afraid my position is summed up by this quote;

    entrails of the last priest." - Denis Diderot
