Canadian security forces thwarted a plot to blow up a rail line between Canada and the United States announced two arrests on Monday afternoon.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers said the suspects, who are alleged to have al-Qaeda connections, had sought to attack the railroad between Toronto and New York City.

Canadian officials worked closely with the FBI throughout the investigation, which began last year.


FBI is busy these days.

I wonder what the answer to this terrorism issue really is, or if there is one.

Is it more war, more money, get out of the middle east completely....I really don't know what they want other than pain and suffering to all.

I remember my buddy over from the UK after 9-11 was like "get used to it dude." Fortunately we have been very lucky compared to what the UK went through in the 70's 80's and 90's with the IRA.

The IRA seems to have fizzled somewhat. I guess you get tired of bombing sometimes.

There is no answer that will stop all terrorist attacks. There is always going to be a few people who see there is some injustice in the world, either real or perceived, and is foolish enough to think that more violence will stop it. Or someone who thinks if they kill enough people, they can accomplish some ludicrous goal. And enough of them are going to get lucky (or unlucky as the case may be) to accomplish just enough to make the next guy think he has some chance at success.

I like Canada's proactive approach versus our reactive one.

The US approach has always been and still is proactive.
