Earth Liberation Front's Violent Acts?

Great, so the ELFs are apparently burning down environmentally friendly homes. The only thing that might satisfy them is if no homes were built. Fox News has the story here:

WOODINVILLE, Wash. — Explosive devices were found inside luxury houses set ablaze Monday morning outside of Seattle, and police suspected that a well-known eco-terrorism group ignited the fires.

The multi-million-dollar development known as "Street of Dreams" in Woodinville, Wash., burst into flames in the early morning hours, and Snohomish County crews fought to contain the blaze.

The Earth Liberation Front, known for violent acts in the name of environmentalism, left a sign at the scene and was suspected to have set fire to the swanky, newly built neighborhood. . . .

The sign found at the scene bore the initials "ELF" — those of the radical environmental group — and mocked claims that the luxury homes were environmentally friendly, according to video images of the sign aired by KING-TV.

"Built Green? Nope black!" the sign said. . . . .

John,

One needs to be very careful here. Just because an arsonist claims that they are from the ELF, it doesn't mean actually they are.

Law enforcement investigators need to do the work here first.

Here's another reason that arson will unfortunately become more common:

Broke U.S. homeowners linked to arsons

Authorities in economically stressed U.S. cities see an increase in torched houses. Is the mortgage mess transforming more Americans into criminals?

I would not be surprised if this was in some way tied to Tre Arrow, the eco-nut tied to ELF that was just extradited from Canada to Portland on Friday to face charges of torching several semi's back in 2001. His first court appearance to plead was today also.

This is sad news related to Luxury Homesthat many explosive devices were found inside luxury homes set ablaze outside of Seattle and police suspected that well-known eco-terrorism group ignited the fires. So, I better suggest that the government must propose plans that should not happened in the future.

In my opinion it is miniature provocation orchestrated by Bush’s henchmen (same one who orchestrated 9/11) that will escalate gradually to burning expensive houses with people.
It will maximally outrage ordinary citizens and “give moral OK” for hunting down all radical (against any government policies) organizations members with declaration of The Martial Law in some States.
