The scanners have already been implemented in Holland and are coming to the U.K. That is why I care.citygirl said:Orwellian - why do you care? You've admitted you have never stepped foot in the US so if there are body scanners - what does it matter to you?
And again, whose civil liberties are you talking about when you say "our civil liberties are being taken away.." You're not a US citizen nor do you enter the US so what does it have to do with you? Just not sure why you're so up in arms about something that has zero impact on you.
That is true. But remember the new liquid rule? That was only for the U.S at first, now it's everywhere. Body scanners are probably going to be implemented for all flights to and from the EU as well. That's why I care.citygirl said:Full body scanners for flights heading to the US - which would have zero impact on you since you have never been there. So again - why do you care? And if the scanners are being used for flights within Europe and you object, I suggest you take that up with your own government. Doesn't have anything to do with the US.
Yes but the justification for taking away my civil liberties was 9/11. Just as the Underwear-bomber is the justification to implement body scanners.citygirl said:Ditto on the civil liberty issue - AFAIK, if your country (and I don't know where you are from) has made laws that impact your civil liberties, wouldn't you be best served to address it with them?
