The next attack:
Reinforced cargo containers or large heavy duty construction dumpsters modified to act as "War wagons". Gun ports,reinforced sides and all the ammo you want, rockets grenades use your imagination
Car bombs on the freeway to shut it down both ways. Empty lane in one direction and massive traffic jam in the other. Pull the war wagon down the empty side and open fire on the jammed side. Do this in both directions after the traffic has backed up and you could kill thousands. Have motorcycles to give yourself a chance of escape. Do this in 15 or 20 major cities at the same time. Who is getting on the freeway to go to work tomorrow?? Not me. Massive financial impact.
I thought of this as soon as I had to give up the old "Blow the levies in New Orleans during a hurricane" plan. Mother nature took care of that one.
How about use your suitcase nuke to blow apart the Hawaiian Island that is ready to slide half of it into the ocean. Create a sunami that hits the west coast. Happened before. A bit of a stretch I'll admit. but it would have a huge payoff.
Overpressure your hose outlet in your backyard and pump poison into the water supply. Gets rid of that old dilution problem. Make you doubt something as basic as tap water.
Hey maybe you could mess with the spinach supply.
We are so wide open it is beyond belief and it is impossible
to protect us. We cannot fix this on our side.

(Sometimes your worst nightmare is just a start.)
"We are so wide open it is beyond belief and it is impossible to protect us. We cannot fix this on our side."
I agree. It is only a matter of time before they will succeed in an attack (biological, chemical, or nuclear in nature). So I think it's wise for us to prepare mentally for that time. I'm not saying let's all go hide in our basements, but simply live our lives recognizing that it could all change drastically any day. I think such preparation will help us to think rationally when the day comes.
As for your scenarios...I am most concerned with large sporting events, especially when they are happening simultaneously. Take the NFL games this Sunday, just before the end of Ramadan. At 1pm there will be games at the Meadowlands, Cincinnati, Buffalo, Miami, Tampa, Atlanta, and Kansas City. A coordinated attack at a few of these venues could start a panic and stampede at all of them. I don't think we can really say how people would react.
