    Of course not. We pay hundreds of billions of dollars to the Military, CIA and FBI to protect us. What are you going to do that they can't?

    All I can do is be vigilant on the homefront, national security should be every citizen's business......

    This question always reminds me of the movie The Fugitive. How long would it have taken to find his wife's killer if Dr. Richard Kimble didn't look first for "one armed" "men"?
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    First off, probably not ****ing with their **** and pissing entire groups of people off for decades on end may be a good spot.

    Occupational, aggressive, offensive war would have to go out the window too. Once pretty much everyone has had a friend or family member killed by the United States military, you're going to find yourself in a bad situation.

    The major recruitment tool is propaganda based on the overall anti-American/anti-West sentiment in the ME brought on by decades of intervention by the West. These attitudes must be addressed and changed, and can primarily be done so through humanitarian outreach.

    Trade, diplomacy, joint military/police actions, humanitarian outreach; these things would go well further in combating terrorism than our current method which is to piss more people off even more and pretend that doesn't exacerbate the problem.

    Most people are vigilant. One does not have to increase government interference in our lives and give up our rights to do it.

    I have guns. In fact, I have CCWs (which I think are unconstitutional, but that's another thread...but not because you can carry concealed but because you need the permit to carry concealed). I'm fine. Terrorism is the least of my worries. I'm more worried about the dumbass chick driving her SUV on her cell phone, doing her makeup, making a turn through the cross walk I currently am in.

    Perhaps OJ should employ profiling to find his wife's killer.

    Forget profiling, use some damned common sense, people!
    They did nothing wrong. The guy was in possession of a valid US visa which gives him the right to purchase a one way ticket. I work in the business, plenty of people pay cash for their tickets, even first class passengers. It's not unheard of and it's not something that would raise any eyebrows in my business.

    Exactly what rights are you giving up while being searched/questioned while trying to board a plane?.....
