Here an up-to-date description of raised security levels in Europe
which shows you that we have everything under control over here:
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 may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even
"A Little Bit Cross." Londoners have not been "A Little Bit Cross"
since the Blitz in 1940, when tea supplies all but ran out. Terrorists 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.") This rise was
precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France's white flag
factory, effectively paralysing the country's military capability.
It's not only the English and French that are on a heightened level of
Italy has increased its alert level from "Shout Loudly and
Excitedly" to "Elaborate Military Posturing." Two more levels remain:
"Ineffective Combat Operations" and "Change Sides."
The Germans also increased their alert state from "Disdainful Arrogance"
to "Dress in Uniform and Sing Marching Songs." They also have two higher
levels: "Invade Poland" 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.
