    "smart terrorist" is an oxymoron.

    A day where only 3 ringleaders are id'd but not apprehended, and only 3 trucks missing sounds like a slow day

    It does seem like a stupid thing to do to attack on the 10th anniversary of such a large attack, but if they were to succeed in an attack, they would probably consider it a huge victory. It would be like giving us a big middle finger and it would definitely hurt us.

    The problem is actually pulling it off with the level of security about this weekend due to the anniversary and the amount of people who are going to be nervous and paying particular attention on Sunday for suspicious behavior. It certainly would not be easy to pull off a successful attack this Sunday.

    You know what I'll be doing on Sept 11, 2011?

    About the same thing I did on Sept 10, 2001. Because **** Al-Qaeda, that's why. I'm going to be teaching a total stranger how to fly an airplane. And I'm going to do it again on Sept 12. As a nation, fear drove us insane. I'm putting my ****ing foot down. Al-Qaeda is the rookie quarterback who managed to throw one perfect touchdown pass late in the 4th quarter, and now everyone thinks he's some ****ing superman. **** Al-Qaeda, Al-Qaeda is a fourth-round pickup to be a third string QB not even worth the league minimum salary. I'm not afraid of these idiots, people try to kill me damn near on a daily basis.

    **** Al-Qaeda, they were never worth one invasion, let alone two. Our response to Sept 11 should have been:
    1) Reenforce cockpit doors
    2) Hire more psychological profiling guys at the airport like Israel does
    3) Put a CIA black squad together and say "Find these guys"
    4) When found, send predator drones, because Al-Qaeda isn't worthy of the attention of the baddest military force this planet has ever seen. Send a machine to do it, because it's the sort of mundane task you use a machine for, because our real pilots can't be bothered to go hunt down what amounts to a middle-eastern version of gangbangers.

    I'm done with it. Cowboy up, America.

    Statistically speaking, several hundred people will die on 9/11 from unnatural causes. 40 people will be murdered. 90 people will die in a car crash. 13 will have fatal accidents at work. 54 people will fall to their death. 6 people will drown. 80 will commit suicide.

    Terrorism is a nonexistent risk compared the ones you face everyday without worry. Its only real power to harm is when it frightens you into doing something stupid.

    Security state mobilizes the state press to evoke fear and caution into the populace around a non-existent threat in order to perpetuate doctrine of endless war through nationalism and fear. More at 10.

    I hoe they aren't legitimate.

    having a legitimate threat means that it's more likely something tragic could happen.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    So you're saying my post is like the Soviet Union.
