The identification of ROTC offices, recruiting offices and police officers as major military targets is a bit laughable.
Laughable? NOT! My son is an JROTC cadet and has been told on several occasions to NOT wear his uniform to school because of threats. Other students have made threats and bully cadets on a regular basis because they are against the war in Iraq. The Muslims are serious about hating us AND crazy, which isn't a good combination.

I agree that any threat against US interests is to be taken seriously.
IMHO, the threats made by others against ROTC offices would not alter the strategic center of gravity within the free world. Mounting a massive millenial jihad against all things associated with ROTC isn't going to be comparable to the fall of the Roman empire per the original intentions of Muslim fanatics seeking to overwhelm what they perceive as Satan America.
IMHO, proposing such targets as the strategic lynchpin of American society is a bit naive. This is not to lessen concern regarding our defense, merely recognition that those who would even propose such targets are a bit incompetent.
