    It devalues the horror of terrorist attacks and their destructive nature.
    I think there's huge potential to come up with several, "what ifs", that the counter terrorists folks could really benefit from. There was many a time when I was in the service that we were assigned the task to figure out how to counter American battlefield doctrine. It was a, "let's see what the troops can come up with", sorta thing.

    Now, having said that if this is some sorta, "let's try and be politically correct and relate to the Islamofacists", kinda thing, then it's bull****.

    We teach people in the military, law enforcement, intelligence, and emergency services about possible targets for terrorist attacks. I honestly don't see the harm of teaching this to the primary targets of terrorism, civilians. I attended a similar class on terrorism when I was 16, and I didn't put anthrax in my town's drinking supply.

    Wow

    The teacher chose a wrong topic but at least he encourages creativity!
    eah Well. Western Australians - what can you say??

    Mind you we don't need no stinkin' terrorists - remember a disaster exercise I did for a subject I was studying - they put forth a scenario based on a real possiblity - Gold mining area so Sodium Cyanide regularly carried on trucks through town - mix that with rain = cyanide gas

    The internet is like a herd of performing elephants with diarrhoea -- massive, difficult to redirect, awe-inspiring, entertaining, and a source of mind- boggling amounts of excrement when you least expect it.

    I personally see nothing wrong with this. It's just getting kids to be creative. Albeit in a slightly strange manner. But I mean it's no worse then asking them to write a story or read a book. I mean do you know how many stories out there have some kind of death or violence? Can't let teenagers who are on the verge of being adults be exposed to anything that might be slightly violent
