    I don't think what is going on in Syria is necessarily connected, as he is implying... other than if we DO bomb Syria someone might try to retaliate, and the Iranians probably have or will have nukes soon.


    Personally I think we have a better chance of being left alone if we leave this Syrian civil war alone.


    Yes, if AQ coulda done it to this point, they would have. However, that doesn't mean they will never be able to, necessarily. Just sayin'.
    We had a chance of being left alone, before Obama promised to light up Syria and failed to carry it out. At this point, he's sending an engraved invitation to the bad guys.

    In point of fact, an appearance of weakness draws terrorists like flies to ****. Bin Laden was inspired by our failure in Mogadishu...

    Charleston would be a strategic target, because of the ballistic missile nuke sub base there. However, there are likely many other targets of greater value.

    However, sneaking one in on a cargo ship would be one of the easiest ways.
    Behind Savannah and possibly New York, we also probably have the busiest commercial port on the Eastern Seaboard. Needless to say, there are a lot of reasons why Charleston would make for an inviting strategic target.

    I doubt that such a thing will ever happen (or, at the very least, I sincerely hope that it doesn't), but to deny that it is a possibility would be foolish.

    Between earthquakes and hurricanes, it's not like we don't already have more than our fair share of things to worry about down here anyway.

    Yes, these guys hate us for "looking weak." Rather than the ****ing around we've been doing in their various countries for the last 50 years.
