New Terror Alerts
The British are feeling the pinch in relation to recent bombings and have raised their security level from "miffed" to " peeved". Soon though, security levels might be raised yet again to "irritated" or even "A Bit Cross". Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross' since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies all but ran out. Terrorist have been re-categorized from "Tiresome" to a "Bloody Nuisance". The last time the British issued a "Bloody Nuisance" warning level was during the great fire of 1666. Also, the French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from "Run " to "Hide". The only two higher levels in France are "Surrender" and "Collaborate". The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France's white flag factory effectively paralyzing the country's military capability. It is not only the English and the French that are on a heightened level of alert. Italy has increased the alert level from "Shout loudly and Excidetly" to "Elaborate Military Posturing". Two more levels remains "Ineffective Combat Operations' and "Change Sides". The Germans also increasd their alert from "Disdainful Arrogance" to "Dress in Uniform and Sing Marching Songs". They also have two higher levels "Invade a neighbor" and "Lose". Belgians, on the other hand, are all on holiday as usual and the only threat they are worried about is NATO pulling out of Brussels.
