From the Wall Street Journal:
LONDON—Britain's defense ministry said it is considering putting surface-to-air missiles on the rooftops of apartment buildings and at other locations in East London during this summer's Olympics, a stark reminder of the scale and intensity of the security operation surrounding the Games.
The Ministry of Defence said it is considering deploying missile systems with a range of up to five miles, and an altitude of up to 10,000 feet, at six locations across London during the Olympics.
2012, F**K YEAH!
As the Journal adds, no decision's been made just yet. But still, wouldn't missiles on apartment buildings add the perfect wrinkle of insanity-meets-daily-life? Just to make things feel extra apocalyptic. Who's excited for the London Olympics to turn into a Michael Bay movie?
