How does this make the U.S. a laughingstock? The purpose of the ban was to prevent terrorists from bringing rigged electronics on board not to inconvenience passengers. I think it’s a smart idea and applaud it. The U.S. still gets the enhanced security and passengers are not inconvenienced.

I think the Yemen raid discovered plans to replace the batteries in rechargeable battery packs with smaller, lower capacity batteries so the device will still turn on for inspection and use the extra room for explosives.

“targeting Muslim-majority countries”

Someone is going to have to help me here. Doesn’t it seem logical that if Muslims have targeted all westerners that will not join there “religion/sect” and face death or dis-membership by doing so, and the countries that have the most muslims in them have the most people to carry out that threat, and it is their threat not ours, then why not place sanctions on those countries efforts to carry out those threats?

But, in the “he who laughs last category,” if Qatar Airlines wants to present themselves as a courier for possibly threat of US citizens, then two things can happen:

1. Every passenger and crew member will be deplaned individually on the tarmac and searched to include body cavity,

or 2., Qatar will be denied landing privileges on American or territory soil and we’ll see just how much money they can lose and stay in the air?

No problem. They have to realize that making a threat like this has reaction to action. And they need to be prepared to suffer the consequences for their actions. Simple. They may play the game, but they don’t make the rules on our soil, we do.

Batteries are now so powerful they themselves are a very potent incendiary device,people are building powerwall home battery packs out of 18650 batteries.

Remove the safety devices on any portable device and wire in a few strips of magnesium and there is your bomb. And a timer to create a dead short. Its easy to do for anyone with electronic experience.
