We know that they’re busy skiing Down Under in Australia, but early Tuesday morning, authorities in Melbourne arrested four suspects accused of planning to carry out a terrorist attack on a military base.  Authorities said the men that formed the group, which may have ties to Al-Shabaab, a Somali insurgent group with ties to al Qaeda.  The suspects planned to storm the Australian military base with automatic weapons and attack the military personnel at the base until they were killed.  Kudos to our friends in Australia for stopping this plot before anyone was hurt.
