Next time they may not just talk

From ABCNews:

A group of unarmed Iranians staged a protest aboard a Lufthansa jet at the Brussels airport Thursday, refusing to leave the plane and calling for the return of the monarchy in Iran, officials said.

The plane landed at Brussels International airport at 3 p.m. (9 a.m. EST) on a flight from Frankfurt, and the protesters stayed behind after most of the 59 passengers got off.

What's alarming about this story is that the “protesters” weren't instantly killed by the passengers. That means that people are beginning to forget how vulnerable they are in an airplane, when some whacko wants to make a point. The next time they may not be unarmed.

James Joyner points out how “affective” this kind of protest certainly is (not).
