london 2012 paralympics / olympics countdown clock

The Associated Press is reporting that there have been talks, and steps taken to possibly have surface-to-air missiles on top of residential buildings to provide security during the 2012 London Olympics.

Could you imagine if you saw the military posted on top of YOUR roof with guided missiles? Crazy stuff huh?

I understand heightened security precautions and the need to be vigilant and aware of any possible threat, but heavy artillery like this on apartment buildings is a bit much?

Below is the flyer that has been sent to the residents living around the Lexington Building Water Tower
