(Heads up...We're coming and we've got tongue blades!!)
But the real fear comes from the undisputed fact that no defense and no preventive measures can succeed against a determined suicide murderer. This has not yet penetrated the thinking of the Western World. The U.S. and Europe are constantly improving their defense against the last murder, not the next one. We may arrange for the best airport security in the world. But if you want to murder by suicide, you do not have to board a plane in order to explode yourself and kill many people. Who could stop a suicide murder in the midst of the crowded line waiting to be checked by the airport metal detector? How about the lines to the check-in counters in a busy travel period? Put a metal detector in front of every train station in Spain and the terrorists will get the buses. Protect the buses and they will explode in movie theaters, concert halls, supermarkets, shopping malls, schools and hospitals. Put guards in front of every concert hall and there will always be a line of people to be checked by the guards and this line will be the target, not to speak of killing the guards themselves. You can somewhat reduce your vulnerability by preventive and defensive measures and by strict border controls but not eliminate it and definitely not win the war in a defensive way. And it is a war.
This is the best part I found in the article. All this Homeland Security crappola of "Terror Alert Level ORANGE" and airport screening. etc. is a joke. The terrorists say "BOO!" and we jump. Bet they get a big kick out of watching us flinch on CNN.
"They" are going to try and kill us no matter what precautions we take. We should do as Israel does. They kill 1 Israeli, then Israel flattens a terrorist's neighborhood. Eventually attrition of the islamobombers will take it's toll.
bump for future reference
