Happy New Year, although in China it is not until Feb the 3rd!!
It is so sad to hear all this paranoia about flying in the States, you guys need to just lay off, a bit otherwise somebody will be shot who is innocent!!
I’ve been in many countries and security doesn’t carry on this way, now you have passengers becoming vigilantes. Humpty Dumpty sat on the Wall…well maybe it is too late for you to do anything, but you can be assured it is just going to damage your International reputation even more. You have this idiot Goldberg attacking GA now, trouble is the TSA will take over.
Sorry to say this
Alex from Freezing Cold China!
Nice to hear from you again, Alex!
Some people say if we live in fear then they have won. We should keep that in mind.
A while ago I visited aviation companies around Beijing. Wonderful people, beautiful things to see, cold drafty office buildings. Closing the outside door didn’t seem to be a priority at times. Hope you’re staying warm!
I just can’t believe the crazy way that your Government is going about it. As for doing a body search it is getting way beyond the boundaries of a Democracy. I just can’t take the arguements put forward, especially “If We Live In Fear, They Have Won”!! What have they won, nothing, it goes to show that the Governments are incompetent and unable to do anything without undermining peoples civil liberties!
They should just have a cup of tea and back off a couple of miles!
If they attack GA, you Guys will suffer…like us in Australia!!
Just some steam!!
