But I think it's worth discussing. The news keeps telling us the Alert Level has been elevated and that an attack is highly probable. That being said, what method of attack on the United States do you think the terrorists will use this time? And what part of the country?

I'm guessing the eastern part of the country again and once again with planes of some sort.

I would like to see some result from all this chicken little danger alerts. Indictments, apprehension, and criminal convictions based on physical evidence.

Does the .gov or Joe or Suzie Sixpack take specific precautions against an Orange or Red Alert? What the hell good is a non specific threat warning? I am no DU'er, but I've had it with this BS.

It will be a Sunday morning, and it will be nationwide. I have particular insight to the level of cruelty that they will unleash on our nation. They will, through stealth, deception and skullduggery, remove all sugar from every Krispy Kreme bakery in the US. Simultaneously, all coffee will be switched to decaf, and all maple syrup in every diner will be switched to that awful sugar-free crap.

The horror ...



the horror.

They will pass a new "assualt weapons bill".

Oh you meant the Al Quida terrorists. They will probably car bomb Egypt or Jordan this time. Losers.

I fear attacks on small town america. Car bombs in farmers markets or suicide bomber in a mall in the burbs etc. I think that several small attacks on a sunday morning in small town america would be extremely hard to deal with. People would not feel safe anywhere. Right now there is a feeling that it will only be big targets such as buildings, monuments or power plants. But imagine what would happen if one of these suicide bombers walked into a mall the day after Thanksgiving. Anyway I fear that most as I am not sure people are ready to see that shit up close.

Only one problem...

Mass suicide bombings, ala Israel, require a nearby population of cannon fodder...

Besides, AQ does not, in general, do suicide bombings in that manner... That 'feeling' is based on their past MO, which they have been VERY consistant with.... The 'method' of attack gets creative, the attack itself does not.

They go for BIG high-profile targets (embassies, national symbols, warships) with BIG bombs, and leave the chickenshit to Hamas, IJ, and such...

What I wonder is what's keeping the chickenshit variety out? It certainly isn't our illegal immigration policy.

They're going to strike at the heart of America by replacing our prime time lineup with gay porn and hosted by Michael Jackson.

- The new Survivor will feature 16 well-oiled men in a beach romp testing each other to determine who has the most durable anus.

- The History Channel will become an X-rated "His Story Channel."

- Alias will be replaced by "Gaylius."

- The Friends crowd will no longer meet in the "Central Perk" coffee shop but will instead meet at the "Central Jerk" bathhouse.

- Star Trek will go where no other man has gone before...a lot...and very graphically.

- Will and Grace will pretty much be the same.



It's going to be awful....

for 90% of the population, that is.

I have a story to tell .... my girl friend has a friend who was dating this guy for like 8 years or something. he was a total bum who sat around smoking pot all day. I saw him only once, he looked like a cracker to me?! but shes a not too bright stripper and as it turns out he's from Lebanon, a muslim, and here illegally!! Suffice to say he went to england came back then dissappeared when lo and behold the FBI shows up at her house wanting to question him about something!! YIKES! Whats my point? the fact is yeah yeah this is not a "crusade" or what ever but it is a matter of racial profiling! Kick out and root out all illegal ragheads! Keep an eye on those are Muslims and here legally. Question anyone who goes to a mosque and has a bad word to say about anything america does! Plant informers inside Mosques to gather info on various people! Yeah yeah i know im on a rant! but those damn ragheads really piss me off!

Give out ideas? To terrorists that might be trolling ARFCOM? I hightly doubt there's anything that will be mentioned here that these bastards haven't thought of yet. Well, maybe the Krispy Kreme one, but that's it.

Given the pattern of the terrorists bombing their allies in the Middle East, the terrorists here will probably target the headquarters of the ACLU, since they've been doing everything possible to make the terrorists' lives easier.
Link Posted: 11/23/2003 2:20:47 AM EDT
I really believe the backlash against any muslims in this country is going to be severe when they attack again, and the government will not be the ones hunting them down.

What exactly have they been doing?
Link Posted: 11/23/2003 2:46:20 AM EDT


They are going to crash Oscar Mayer Wienermobiles into donut shops.
Link Posted: 11/23/2003 2:50:18 AM EDT
There probably was going to be a few car bombings in the U.S. but they were either caught in a traffic jam or got carjacked.
My thoughts are we will always be way too vulnerable and all the guns and ammo we have are rendered ineffective.
There are way too many anti-american types here for nothing to happen.
Target? Anytown U.S.A.
If 2 unorganized "snipers" can create an east coast panic...

BigJ,
you are 100% correct on this score, those terrorists have more nasty tricks in their turbans than they can glean from this site, bombing malls is high on their list of soft targets.., i also agree that hits in the "Heartland" will cause more disruption than a hit in a big city.....!! although big city targets are not off the list by any means......

Problem. All of the ideas I've seen mentioned...somebody else beat you to it. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to recognize that recent events have exposed big holes in Palace security, the strength of several nation's electrical grids, highlighted a computer glitch in the radar over the capital, etc.
Not talk about it? The only thing you hurt is your own level of knowledge of the level of destruction that is possible, and your own ability to prepare. You SURE aren't keeping anything from any terrorists.

This is the one to watch. Think about the impact of a bombing or or NBC attack at a major mall around Christmas. If you really want to shake-up the United States, damage us financialy. Shut down the banking system for a week, no credit cards, no ATM's. Hell, most people don't keep enough cash on hand to sustain them for a day, let alone a week.

Bingo! Talk about chaos. It might not be as catostraphic like a plane smashing into a building, but it sure could cause a lot of deaths and major mechanical destruction. i.e. pipes bursting, food spoilage, etc.
