The year of 2007
With 2006 now over and 2007 well on its way do you think something big is going to happen this year. When I say big I mean another attack on the USA. There hasn't been any talk about it lately and it seems to me that the USA is back at white. Do you guys think anything is going to happen in 2007?

I think it is a real possibility but no more so than it was for 2006 or 2005.
My real concern is that the terrorists will eventually start setting off homicide bombs here in the states.
I have a friend who lived down the road from me in Alabama who is an FBI agent. He told me a couple of years ago that the FBI felt it was likely that the terrorists would sooner or later set off suicide bombs at crowned shopping centers during the Christmas shopping season. Places like Wal-Marts and Targets, Malls and other high traffic areas were mentioned in the report he told me about.
That is what I worry about. It is far easier to mix up a batch of explosives from fertilizer and other common chemicals to use in bomb vests here in the states than it is to highjack a plane or set off a big bomb next to a building now.

Pat Robertson thinks it's gonna happen, but then again he predicted a tsunami in the US last year.
When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.

After 9/11 I looked at the tactics those monsters use, I don't think anything is off the table with them. I have no reason to believe anything specific will happen, but I have no reason not think something will. Shoot, even after that terrorist in North Carolina ran down those college kids the sheep still refuse to see cars as dangerous weapons (sorry about the tangent).
Our enemy is inventive and very adaptive I can't put anything past them

Lets just say I'm glad I live in Idaho, not enough people to make it worth an attack, or so I can hope anyway.
