    So the true reason you started this thread wasn't really about terrorism or potential terrorist attacks.
    You just wanted to start yet another "Obama Suckz" thread.

    Terrorism did not start with Obama.
    Terrorism will not end with Obama.
    Terrorism will not be defeated with the next president regardless of who it is.
    Terrorism, like the "war on drugs" is not something any one POTUS can do much about one way or the other.

    You post ridiculous nonsense like this as if stopping terrorism is a simple and easy task.
    That shows a level of ignorance that's difficult to reason with.

    Obama is NOT the cause.
    A republican certainly isn't the "cure".

    Under the leadership of the current President, America will not be able to face a threat from any source, unless that force attacks a golf coarse.

    History has recorded a different result.

    On Jan. 20, 1981, Iran released 52 Americans who had been held hostage for 444 days, minutes after the presidency had passed from Jimmy Carter to Ronald Reagan. The hostages were placed on a plane in Tehran as Reagan delivered his inaugural address.

    Their stated goal is to attack the US, and are now similarly equipped and better financed than was Al-Qaeda when the September 11 attacks were carried out. Recognizing the possibility of an attack, or at least an attempted attack on our own soil is hardly far-fetched.

    Political cartoons are for humor, not analysis.

    I call it reality. As both 'sides' have spent decade upon decade electing idiots that do not care for the constitution, but merely care for their own wealth and power. And even when we see people start to voice their displeasure, it most often is in a partisan manner… their 'guy' is ok, it is the 'other guy' that has brought forth all the problems and doesn't care.

    Most of the citizens are too lazy to pay attention, too busy with self important nonsense, and thus easily lead by a few sound bites.

    The reality is that if it happens, it will be a 'big city', and when it happens everyone will 'come together' like they did after 9/11. The question is will they allow their government to usurp more freedoms in the name of security or will they stand up to governmental abuses of power? And will it just last until the next season of housewives, which is when the citizens lose interest and get back to their self important nonsense.

    Well stated points, my good sir. I think that it is important for all of us to remember that, though the realities and dangers of horrible groups like ISIS are real, pressing issues for the innocents in the Middle East and our citizens abroad, the threat of terrorism here, in the United States, has been bloated in order to increase the willingness of our citizens to give up their liberties in the name of fear. Certainly anything can happen, but it seems you're more likely to get struck by lightening or killed by a cop than die by a terrorist attack here in the U.S., in my personal opinion.

    I doubt it but even if it was, there are now reports of planned attacks on Vegas, coming through Canada, etc. The point is its bad in any case.

    A few points-first off you are demonstrating the last line in my sig. This is the news, and I started a poll to see how forumites feel, so no need to cry about what you think is going on inside my head. Maybe participate or dont?
    Now, when it comes to Americas defense, and antiterrorism in general, Americans and the world tend to favor republicans. So on that front, this is likely to not help things with the mid terms only a few months off.
