    No, I feel safe within the US borders.

    I'm more afraid of dying in a car accident from someone texting & driving.

    the goal is to kill them before they can arm it

    or better yet-exterminate them before they even get hold of a bomb

    Assuming you know what their intentions are in advance which is unlikely.

    Again, hindsight is a wonderful thing. Suicide bombers don't make a habit of giving advanced notice of their intentions.

    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    A much more realistic death prospect for me would involve a bad snow storm and being hopelessly caught in it while driving on a country road.

    Um, actually the CH staffers knew they were under threat because of what they were doing. Thats why one of them had a police escort...

    Have you ever known a suicide bomber to advertise the date, time and location of their proposed targets in advance? Suicide bombers do not advertise in advance their intentions. They pinpoint their targets, choose the time of detonation to inflict the greatest damage and they can make last minute adjustments. They have all the power and every ball is in their court.

    Re: Are you afraid of dying by the hands of terrorists?

    I don't think I would ever be in a position to die by terrorists. Namely I am not a pro western journalist or Christian missionary or member of western armed forces.

    I am however not bothered by attacks on my land. If terrorists attack my government, military, or western missionaries, I consider it their natural right to defend themselves, to arm themselves, and fight off western instigation.

    I don't have that sort of information any more since I am now merely a private citizen. and you are right-few suicide bombers or other terrorists tell authorities when where and at what time they will strike. but terrorists often advertise they are terrorists and often give clues that can lead to their interdiction before they try to engage in a specific act

    and sometimes alert people can stop terrorism by quick reactions

    a few years ago a Jihadist tried to blow up a market in Israeli and as he tried to detonate his suicide vest, an Israeli housewife shopping in that market pulled out her browning pistol and shot the scumbag twice before he could detonate his vest

    so you are essentially a terrorist apologist?
