This has already been done, more than once. We didn't call it terrorism, then. On at least two occasions that I can think of, the incidents involved passenger trains - one in Florida, and one in the desert southwest - deliberately derailed. In other cases, the problem has been detected before a wreck could happen, as on the CSX lines where the automated block detection and switch controls were cut.

And don't forget the way they used OKC to demonize "Evil Right Wing Talk Radio", as well.

I am thinking that the terrorists will wait out Bush...hoping for a new POTUS with less steadfast conviction than G.W.B.
Maybe sometime after the next Presidential we will get hit.
They sure have not given up on wanting Americans dead.
I'm not sure though...I have a hard time getting into the mindset of a terrorist. They have done totally irrational & stupid things many times before that have only hurt their cause.

True that the BG's want to inflict the greatedt harm for the least cost on the US. I tend to think that it will come after Bush is gone to test the next POTUS. I hope that we can stand firm and retialiate in kind.
