"What happened, did they just get religion and now they're actually doing their job?"

I guess you could say that they now worship at the altar of the Patriot Act. <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

The next attack is not a question of "if" but "when". It will happen and quite honestly if it will be aimed at the flying industry and our airports we will see a lot of places go bankrupt. Also certain religious groups and ethnicities will find themselves to be in the spotlight that would single them out and bring many unpleasenteries. It's very easy to hate and stereotype in lack of concrete evidence, knowledge and arrested suspects. Govít agencies can track groups but they canít track individuals. Single person is far more dangerous than an organized group.

I've dealt with 911 and it is an experience I don't want to go thru again. It bonded me with some people more and set me distant from others. Now 5 years later I still deal with the fallout and leftovers from that day. During next attack I will have to deal with it on professional and personal level.

It will happen again since you canít stop a religious fanatic unless you execute each and single one of them which in this case is not even remotely possible. You can't make peace because than you show that terror is the way to go in order to obtain your goals. There are no right answers and this will go on and lengthiness of inactivity will be dictated by how successful the intelligence was and how proactive did we get. We will bomb them today with planes and conventional warfare killing 10-20 terrorist. They will come back tomorrow and blow up a train station killing 1000 of civilians. Rules of proper engagement do not apply in this war.

Darned Right there will be another one, -someday, someway. Getting variously Soft and Lax on our parts, (and Forgetting),-only considerably encourages this. [color:"black"] [/color] [email]Polak187[/email]

Ironraven, Susan, and Ki4buc,-

Seriously speaking, -Just stick with Skymarshalls. Such a person or persons should remain anonymous, -*not* be readily known. And sure, -we need substantially more than we've got.

If you're seriously not kidding, -weapons under some or all seats are a complete Non Starter. Terrorists or other skyjackers could just as easily get at them.

(no matter that they already could just as easily have weapons etc of their own too. And paraphrasing the famous NRA slogan, -if you eliminate defensive weaponry from a plane, -only a skyjacker etc will have a weapon, -this is true. But also just having weapons aboard ready for their taking, -is folly too.)

Again, -just stick with the anonymous Skymarshall. [color:"black"] [/color] [email]ki4buc[/email]
