I just saw a story on the news about someone using a 6-month old baby as a decoy... for a bomb they had strapped to it. I didn't fully catch the story; I was at a relative's house and they were watching the news in Greek, so.

But I caught the baby bomb part. And that's just incredibly fucked up.

The above poses some interesting questions:  Was the plot plausible (assuming the media have captured the details at least semi-accurately)?  And how much difference do these security measures really make?

Some measures are better than no measures. Like I said, I have to be on planes on a fairly regular basis, and I'd rather they take steps to me not dying than to the contrary.

That's just me though.

I think if this bomb concoction actually wouldn't have worked, then the measures are pointless - it'd be like hunting down butterflies because they might eat people. But if it's true... Well, everything I said before still stands. :P
