Just think how many disaffected reside in France. Yeah, the European nations not only have an external threat to worry about, seems they have a legitimate concern about Arab Springs within their own borders from their own enclaves, which are fed population by their own lax immigration laws. A glimpse of the US open borders future?
    The opinions expressed by some on here seem to blame business for the problem of illegals - cheap labor. Well, with 30,000 to 40,000 illegals already here, how much more cheap labor could they possibly use? Besides, the numbers don't tally up, since we are providing food stamps and other assistance to those illegals! The real problem, IMO, is the lack of enforcement of our immigration laws by our government for political reasons, not business hiring! We could very well be facing problems - I think we already are, and it's going to get worse, if reports of the illnesses and diseases they are bringing with them are true! TB, Dengue fever, scabbies, malnutrition, and diabetes to name a few...give me a break!

    Happy July 4th, Eric!

    Happy July 4th to you as well!

    Yeah, disease spread is a real problem. Last I read there were reports of TB and N1H1 being brought in by the child invasion. More unwanted fall out from the open border nonsense.

    Chaps my ass that the administration was planning this all along, as the January RFQ for adult escorts of the children across the entire nation demonstrates.

    Seems like something always happening whenever I'm flying. Coming to Europe it was the Malaysian flight, coming back its terrorists.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

My concern isn't so much plane travel but for the past 2 months our southern border has been wide open. Who's coming through? We don't know - and we're voluntarily shipping these people all over the US from the border.

    Does no one see a problem there? How hard would it be to distribute 10, 20, 50 terrorists into South America - moles, low level, and have them work their way up through into the US? The unintended consequences of allowing such a huge hole in our borders makes taking over a plane, hijacking, underwear bombing... all that seem much too risky and difficult. Send them to South America and simply give them a plan to hit us from the inside after they're routed through - it's not like we're fingerprinting and using facial recognition software on these people and if they're new recruits willing to die for whatever cause affiliated with whatever terrorist group, it's would be rather easy.

    Yep.....I would rather see them being proactive and showing they are on the job. Although I didn't see if we were put on any higher alert status.

    I read this morning BHO is going to be in Dallas and Austin in the near future for fundraising, but he doesn't see the need to visit the border, where all the problems he caused are occurring! Nice, huh?

    Has there been any other word about this threat to Europe and the US?

    Not to my knowledge, but granted, I've been doing family 4th things (and other things), and haven't been looking for it.

    Hmm. Interesting.

    Non-metallic undetectable bombs, so like the one that the terrorists were going to ship in a printer awhile back?

    Now given the resources made available with the large land mass and population under terrorist control provide, wouldn't it be reasonable to assume that their plans and attacks would get just that much more sophisticated and just that much more challenging to thwart.

    Seems pretty much a Sunni Shiite secular conflict. If they kept this conflict to themselves, I believe the rest of the world would sit b and watch them slaughter each other. But seems they both want to drag the rest of the world into their conflict. I don't understand what's either side's advantage to gain the ire of the rest of the world and drag the rest of the world into this conflict? Surely they have seen how doing so the rest of the world sends their military forces. All I see from this is greater human toll from the Sunni's and the Shiites.
    No one in Europe is against basic intelligence sharing as this is a courtesy we also extend to the Americans. I think what people are more worried about is secret phone tapping of European leaders and civilians.
