Danes arrest bomb suspects

Good news from Denmark, a quietly efficient but often overlooked ally in the War on Terror.

I have a constant fear of Western security services being overwhelmed by the sheer scale of Islamist threat, but it's amazing how often the terrorists are caught in the nick of time, both in the US and Europe. That said, the very fact that they usually don't succeed actually creates something of a problem, because if bombs aren't going off the general public tends to stop taking the threat seriously, and becomes more receptive to the left's arguments that absent the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan the Muslim world doesn't have a problem with us, and if we just leave them alone we'll have peace in our time.
