Could it happen again?
While getting ready for work I was watching Fox News. They had a story about the distinct possibility of the U.S. facing a major attack within 5 years. Your thoughts on the matter would be welcome. Is Fox news just trying to get viewers with a hook or is it a real possibility?

I amazed we haven't had an attack since 9/11. Imagine the impact of flying even small planes loaded with fuel/explosives into college football stadiums one Saturday early in the season. That could be devastating to the billion dollar football season.

This nation is constantly under attack......planes, bombs, tangible things that make the news for all to see are just the tip of the iceberg. Behind the scenes, foreigners and infiltrators attack us many times daily via the internet.

Fear mongering is good for news business, you may have noticed that. Back in my school days a major attack would have been ICBM's raining down from across the North pole. Now it's whatever people can think up. A distinct possibility? Yes. Will the enemies of the US try to test our new President of Hope & Change? Most likely. If there is any America left after the weasels in Washington get done with us.

With yesterday being the 67th anniversary of Pearl Harbor. I feel with all the groups that hate the American way of life. It's just a matter of time.

It seems to be it would be pretty trivial to hit us. I'm surprised it hasn't happened.

The only questions are when and where.

Sporting Events, Malls, Concerts. Subway, Trains, Airport. Anywhere there is a large number of people at one time. They don't have to kill a large group in one shot just the fear of attending another event will be enough. It will happen, I just hope the President will have the nerve to stomp on whomever tries it and not play nicey nice.

Of course it could happen again. Not enough has been done since the last major attack to prevent another, and our standing in the world has diminished enough that we have more enemies than we previously did.

Even targeting one of those places like a football stadium might wake up the since they're the ones being targeted willy nilly, and not targeted based on "wall street" or military reasons.

It's not an IF...but a WHEN!
I'm certain that Israel will hit Irans nuke sites within 6 weeks...just my gut feeling. After that...all hell could break loose.

Look at how many have been stopped, and you have your answer.

We have been hit before, and radical Islamists say they will hit us again. Seems pretty straightforward to me.

"Could it happen again?"
Yes, and despite our best efforts, it likely will.
