    Really not surprising, people nowadays can tell you all of the names of past winners of American Idol but have no concept of current events, if anything they just parrot the bias of the so-called “news media” if they even bother to watch.

    How many people gave the correct answer? Editing can turn any question into a conundrum. It's easy to make people look uninformed when that is your intention.

    It reminds me of something about the American populace and terrorism that I was reading yesterday.
    Aviv says terrorists won’t need to use suicide bombers in many of the larger cities, because at places like the MGM Grand in Las Vegas — they can Simply valet park a car loaded with explosives and walk away.

    Aviv says all of the above is well known in intelligence circles, but that our U. S. Government does not want to ‘alarm American citizens’ with the facts.

    On an encouraging note, he says that Americans don’t have to be concerned about being nuked.

    Aviv says the “terrorists who want to destroy America will not use sophisticated weapons. They like to use suicide as a front-line approach. It’s cheap, it’s easy, it’s effective; and they have an infinite abundance of young militants more than willing to ‘meet their destiny’.”

    Aviv says that, as a people, Americans are unaware and uneducated about the terrorist threats they will, inevitably, face.

    If we don't do something about the ideology that spawns the terrorism that we face it will get worse, much worse. Unfortunately we won't until it's too late because it's a "Religion" and we have to respect everyone's rights to believe whatever lunacy they want to.

    +1 If, as they stated, they were there asking the question for an hour we did not see most of the responses. Granted, I am shocked that anyone could forget that 9-11-1943 was the begining of the German occupation of Italy prolonging the terror and destruction of that nation.

    Well that is typical of the American people. Unless the media is blurting something out daily it is sadly forgotten by far too many.

    Everyone knows the "9/11" catch phrase given to it, because that is what is always blurted out by the brainless bobble heads on the news. Now if they had called it "9/11/01" The whole time, there would still be morons who didn't remember, probably fewer, but still enough to make any 30-second internet video to push an agenda whatever it may be.

    It was a Tuesday. I was a freshman in high school and it happened during my first block JROTC class.

    But I'm not your typical Amurican.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    I was locked in a Nuclear Plant wondering if I would ever get out.

    I was installing an access control system in a Chicken plant in Pikeville, TN.

    But I can also remember where I was when Challanger exploded, I was unemployed, standing a an auto dealership trying to get a job as anything, saleman, mechanic, car washer.

    The general American public has no idea what happens in the world day to day, and the sad part is they don't want to know.

    I was walking past the dumpster where I park for work in the morning and a bum who was dumpster diving for bottles popped up his head and said "someone flew a plane into the world trade center". At first I thought someone in a Cessna bounced off a tower but when I walked into work they had it on the TV and the rest is sad tragic history...

    I was in the prosecutor's office in a federal court house....

    We were in lockdown for a while, and then we were ordered to evacuate.

    I was framing a condo in Prescott, AZ. At morning break, we all gathered around the radio to listen.
