    So. Let's say you and your idiot pals want to pull off a terror incident like the Bombay deal. You're all going to die. So what are you going to do? Take out 20 or so lunchtime office workers in the Charlotte, NC banking district? You'll die and have zero effect on the US economy. That's the problem for terrorists; we're just too big.

    On the other hand, Terry Nichols and Tim McVeigh - two homegrown neo-Nazi types - caused massive carnage and incredible destruction.

    Do not promote fear, do not play into false hysteria and please don't add fuel to our nascent police state. Our goal should at all times be to restore this country to the pre-9/11 position of strength through self-confidence, and we absolutely must put a stop to the current tendency to run around like headless chickens every time some disaffected scruffy-bearded Islamic dingbat whispers "boo."

    Hit a BIG city like DC, LA or NYC and the rest of the country will just shrug. You want to drive a stake through the heart of this country and instill REAL fear? Go to middle America, the heartland and pull another Beslan style attack. Wipe out a couple of elementary schools. I have always said this and it's no secret either. Or hit a crowded shopping mall with ANTHRAX in the AC system. Do that across the country and you won't need to nuke Wall Street, it'll just shut down on it's own. There are a hundred ways to severely damage this country, especially economically, when we're already on the ropes. Denial of that fact is foolish.
