Just the fact that OBL has surfaced to tell us to convert... is ominous enough.

If this is true, then why doesn’t the government start a new civil defense program to prepare people for an immediate collapse of the economy, and a sudden drying up of many goods and the means to buy them, not to mention personal finances until things recover.

9/11 only brought a couple of buildings down and it was a body blow, wiping out a major part of Los Angeles or New York city will send the world economy into a tailspin and in the US create a Katrina on a much larger scale.

I’m not sure that losing even a major city would send the entire economy “into a tail spin” -- at least not in the long term.

The lesson of Katrina is that following the destruction of even a moderate sized city, it might not be economically possible or even desirable to rebuild immediately.

Islamic radicalization

No, no, you can't say that. Remember, radical Christianity is just as dangerous as radical Islam in America, all religions have extremists, so you are an "islamophobe" when you say Islam is more violent than other religions. Pretty much copied and pasted from DKos

“What do you mean by “new civil defense program?” Just curious.”

One similar to the aggressive one from the fifties and 60s where we actually participated in it and were often made aware of it,

I have sometimes thought that the slight increase in earthquake and hurricane and terrorism preparedness preaching indicated that the govt was going to gradually push an increasingly more forceful program, but that doesn’t seem to be happening.

“I’m not sure that losing even a major city would send the entire economy “into a tail spin” — at least not in the long term.”

I was under the impression that 9/11 took a heck of a lot of spending and creativity to keep the economy from floundering and businesses from collapsing.

A deeper more focused, yet wider ranging body blow could slam our economy to a point where there wasn’t enough bench depth to stop the tailspin down.

A deep powerful ripple coupled with massive evacuation from damaged and contaminated areas with long term infrastructure damage and more contaminated communities downwind could create a refugee problem much worse than New Orleans.

I agree that it seems odd that we are not “mobilizing” our citizens, other than telling them to “be prepared.” In fact, this reminds me that I need to set something up within our Condo community - 73 homes.....but, I’m not sure I’ll get much reaction.....people are sooooo docile....we’re probably the MOST prepared here. (And our garage shows it....too many people here are soooo proud of their nearly empty garages.) My husband just says....”we’ve got food, water.....AND GUNS! So, we’ll always have food and water!” LOL.

And does the preparation include the stated position that the source of any nuclear material used against the US will be annihilated?

Any attack will be aimed at getting us out of the middle east. A big attack will only strengthen our will to fight. If something goes down, it will be many small but effective hits designed too put political pressure on Washington.

“”In fact, this reminds me that I need to set something up within our Condo community - 73 homes.....but, I’m not sure I’ll get much reaction.....people are sooooo docile....”’

People have improved in the last few years, a lot of people keep a little extra food and water, in California now it seems like everyone at least has a token bag of earthquake stuff.

I’m a little annoyed that I forgot my 9/11 habit of topping
off the gas tanks just before special occasions.

I also like to keep my bills paid up and credit cards clean in case of a big enough attack that could hurt my income.

Interesting, your comment...

There was a very obviously pro=islamic freeper here many years ago who was banned eventually. He had successfully predicted a few things, which made a bunch of us suspicious.

He posted here once that the islamic radicals liked the idea of a tet offensive very much. I have never forgotten that he said that.

HOW’S THE FENCE COMING ALONG?

Did you see the couple arrested Saturday for bringing Iraqis and Jordanians through South America into the U.S.? How many did we miss for the few we have caught?

Did you see how we have opened American up to Mexican truckers?

It doesn't take much to imagine how the combination of unregulated people and shipments will result in terror attacks of the future.
