I haven't flown for nearly two years. Just got back from a business trip. Here is my advice to you. Lot has changed since 9/11. I didn't see national guards with M16 walking around. But security is still tight. 1) Carry your driver's license or passport with you. You probably have to show your ID at least 3 times before getting on the plane. 2) Wear clean pair of socks. Some people at the airport were ordered to remove their shoes for closer inspection. 3) Don't carry any metallic objects while you walk through the metal detector. If you set that thing off, you'll be hassled for like 5 minutes. 4) Arrive 2 hours before the flight if flying domestic. I don't know about the international flights. 5) If someone is picking you up at the airport, have that person park it in the parking area. Cops were really strict about people parking vehicles in front of the building.

I want one! @#%& it, one of the most heart-rending images to come out of Afghanistan was of a NA gunman sitting on a T-55 with an RPG-7 and a backpack full of rockets. I want a backpack full of rockets! But I can't, because I live in the freest nation on earth.

Nah, I took a second look at it and am contemplating a bumper-sticker run.

Interesting how few people in the media are willing to tell the truth, that these missiles are neither American made Stingers or Russian SA-7's, but in reality ChiCom HN-5's MANPADS. The HN-5 being the ChiCom copy of the Russian SA-7 Strella AAM. Of course we can't call a ChiCom Missle a Chicom missle, THAT MIGHT UPSET CHINA!!! The burning Question is...Are the missiles, we think, are being smuggled into the U.S. by these terrorists, The same missiles China shipped over to the Taliban AFTER 9-11?

Maybe they're just staunch RKBA supporters, you know - shoulder-fired missles should be protected by the 2nd Amendment right? What's y'alls problem?

. "We don't have information that al Qaeda is planning to use these against commercial aircraft in the United States," an FBI official said. "However, we are passing the information along for people to remain alert to the potential use."

Bwah, ha. Remain calm. Nothing to see here. Move along sheeple. They woudn't use them on commercial aircraft. They're going to shoot them up in the air at geese on the 4th of July, like fireworks.

A U.S. official also said the portable missiles, which can be carried in small crates, "are fairly light and not difficult to obtain on the gray market."

What is the "gray" market?

F & L, FOX News did mention there was a Chinese copy of the SA-7 on Friday - about 2 seconds worth but they did mention this missile.

Very interesting indeed when you look back at flight 800.

Kind of interesting that after so many months of silence FOX also briefly discussed the possibility of a missile attack on Flight 800 during the broadcast mentioned above. I thought the NTSB had ruled out a missile attack ?? (The Gov wouldn't lie to us would they ?? Naw, of course not.)

Okay fellas. Time to take the Washington Post off of the circulation list for classified intelligence reports. Either that or just give up and print all of the classified reports in the Washington Post and make it required reading for the staff. This warning was the most useless yet. Next warning: Someone, somewhere has some sort of weapon that we have no evidence will be used against us domestic or abroad on high, medium, or low profile targets. Keep an eye out for them though.

I'm worried about the space shuttle being a target. Losing another crew would be devastating (personally and nationally). Losing a shuttle would end the program. Losing my job (directly crew and shuttle related) would end my families ability to consume food and live in a house. Terrorism and terrorists suck.
