Look, I’m usually pretty content to let terrorists do what they want. That is not to say that I approve of what terrorists do or appreciate it or have any positive thoughts about their killing of innocent civilians.
What I’m saying is that I’m not really doing anything to prevent it, either. I’m not gonna join the army to try and fight actual terrorists. I’m not about to run for office to begin to alter the way America interacts with the Middle East in a slow but steady fashion that may eventually eradicate the behavior at its source.
No, I’m just gonna keep living my life. Admit it. You are probably doing the same. None of us are Team America.
But if anything could stir me to action, it’s this news out of Ireland that dissidents tried to attack the set of ‘Game of Thrones. ‘
Police have foiled a dissident plot to target ex-security force members working on the Game of Thrones TV set in Belfast.
Republican terrorists planned to leave a bomb next to a catering unit at the Paint Hall Titanic Studios where former cops, who were working on the set of the hit HBO show, were gathering for meals.
Sunday Life has seen security documents that reveal the conspiracy was foiled after a tip-off from an informant.
It sounds like the plot was in serious planning stages before being foiled by an informant.
A police source, with knowledge of the Game of Thrones bomb bid, told Sunday Life: “The dissidents initially got word that a number of ex-RUC and army personnel worked at the studios.
“They were even told the exact job in which most of them were employed and the catering unit where they took their lunch and tea at the same time every day.”
The insider claimed the dissidents planned to place a bomb made up of fertiliser with a Semtex booster inside a wheeled bin which would be left next to the catering unit.
But a long-standing agent within the republican gang tipped-off his old RUC handler leading to a massive police counter-operation.
Ahh, fuck no. Fuck no, fuck no fuck no. I want my ‘Game of Thrones’ to return on April 12th and I don’t want to have to feel bad watching it knowing that my enjoyment of it may have tangentially caused the death of civilians who’ve done nothing wrong but try and make a living helping produce an amazing show.
If this happens again, I’m gonna join the SAS.
