Q&A Friday #56: Will There Be A Large Terrorist Attack In The US This Year?
Question: “How much stock do you put in the predictions that there will be a successfull and perhaps large terrorist attack within the United States later this year?” — ohioan
Answer: I don’t put any stock in predictions made by Pat Robertson, if that’s what you’re driving at =D.
But, the reality is that we are wide open for a terrorist attack in this country and have been for a long time.
First off, chances are that terrorists would have no problem getting into this country. A lot of terrorists could probably fly in with no problems. Any that couldn’t fly in, could get in a ship coming into our ports. If there are any terrorists left that couldn’t make it in either of those ways, well, there are 12-20 million illegal immigrants who managed to just waltz right over the border. Next once the terrorists get here, there is practically an unlimited number of targets that feature hundreds of people gathered together with little or no security protecting them. Put it together and the potential for a large terrorist attack is going to be there for the foreseeable future, including of course, this year.
That’s why it’s a loser’s game to try to play defense. You have to go “over there” and kill the terrorists because if they have the opportunity to gather “here” and strike, we’re going to have a lot of trouble stopping them.
