I think it is time to crush these people, "Lawless Area," sounds like the perfect area to Carpet Bomb.

Once again I pray I am wrong but with the halfwits and dummies apointed by the head loser I think they can pull it off!!!


 


As far as a bounty on the head of the taliban group leader it is a badge of honor and insures him and his ilk that he will get to their version of heaven!

It will be interesting to see what intelligence comes out of this, whether or not the tribes of Waziristan can muster the plans, finances, armament, and trained personenl to carry out terror missions on U.S. soil.


If it does happen, the war in Afghanistan and rural Pakistan would need serious attention.

It'll be interesting to see if Pakistan is really interested in taking an active part in helping themselves. The Taliban is no friend of theirs so fighting these fecaliths would require some risk on their part.

The thing about Pakistan is that they have a new civilian government, have political turmoil in urban pakistan, and dont have the loyalty of the ISI.


Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Somalia are now the biggest threats to the USA in terms of Islamic terrorism.

What scares me as much as foriegn countries is that we really don't know how many sleepers we have in this country. I don't lnow if our security can stand up to a suicide raid by many.


Wether B.O. wants to use  the word or not we are at war.


PSD a question since your closer than I what about Bangledesh that was west Pahistan yet I hear nothing from them?

There are only a few people inside this country who recognize the damage that another 9/11 will do to it and others who would welcome it as a method of cultural change.


Having been through two terrorist incidents I recommend that we all take these threats seriously. It has been almost 9 years since 9/11 and we are due. Where is the question and how prepared are we for what is to come? In the end it will not be the federal resources that get there first ,it will be LE and Emergency Services that have to handle it for at least the first two days.


Be prepared and be observant and report what you see and maybe we can stop it before it happens. Thank god for our military taking the fight to them in Afghanistan and the rest of the troubled places in the world.

there is one. It would seem Obama has changed his attitude since the election.

It's always easy to say what you're going to do in a given situation, what is true, what is false, etc. But when a person is able to find what is actually true or false it finally leads them to the path of reality. This is what happens during political campaigns when candidates make "pie-in-the-sky" prognostications and promises with all good intention of fulfilling same.


The key to understanding I think is to recognize that until a person has all or at least more information they can only be considered to have a good or bad IDEA or BELIEF that they WANT to fulfill. It's when the sad truth of disclosure enters the picture the person has to change their position or strategy in order to assure success or the path will inevitably lead to failure.


The reality is that as the administration learns the truth which offsets the pap of political rhetoric they appear to be relying more on the path recommended by experts. I hope that method is continued and not thrown on the dung heap of arrogance and hypocrisy.

If your sayimg B.O. has changed for the better I would agree to a point BUT all the change I can see is he is following more and more of the previous admins program just changing the names so he does appear as dumb as he is!

I dont know if he is following previous policies or should. But I think the view might change when you actually get a real intelligence briefing every morning as the presidnet rather than the santized version a candidate might get.

While I can agree with what you say I must remind you these are the same "advisors" so again I say no matter the reason the new admin is doing about like the previous!

Well said....one hopes that the patrol officer on the street and officers and deputies from other divisions have learned that their jobs are much bigger in the post 9/11 era

No, that's not quite what I meant and I’m sorry for not being clearer and I'm glad you can see a change, albeit small, for the better. What I meant was that when politicos are on the campaign trail they make promises and criticisms that on the face of it seem valid at the time. After achieving the office the grim reality of the situation is made clear to them and this huge gob of OH KRAP hits them full in the face accompanied with the realization that they simply didn't know what they didn't know.


There was an early instance very shortly (within just a couple days I believe) after Obama became President Elect and he had visited President Bush at the White House. I recall how stricken he looked and my wife and I both commented about it. He appeared very tight lipped and seemed to glower at the contingent of press that was present and wasn't very talkative or responsive. Our discussion took us many places but eventually settled on the idea that as he had just received his first "official" briefing maybe the news was much worse than he had known or predicted.


So when judging him, or any politico at least at first, and wondering or complaining why he does this or doesn't do that sometimes in contradiction of his campaign promises it might be well to consider the changing circumstances. This is, I think, a good idea especially given the complaints about GITMO, Iraq, Afghanistan and a multitude of other things.

We are and I assume always have been on the same page when it comes to campaign B.S. because that is all it is.


Now being said I am ,I think anyway, a fair man I must give credit where credit is do and yes I have seen a few positive changes in B.O. but the changes go right back to the Bush admin. which you keep bashing. mow I cannot give Bush the credit because he like B.O. has experts they rely upon and for the most part they remain the same.


One big difference I see is the media plays it like these are "new" tactics by B.O. and they are not.


What I am trying to get you to see is B.O. is just another pol only real difference is media coverage.


If you can look, honestly look, at his past life and tell me that the boneheaded appointments he has made are good for this country then anything you have learned was not processed amd I am not talking about what I write it is clear that I don't like him but look at the facts!

Look, I'm not so naive as you would like to believe nor do I believe you’re as fair as you’d like to believe. Of course he’s "just another pol" as are they all. BUT in this case I believe he wants to do what's best for the country and you believe the opposite. You constantly go on about the appointments and how he's ruining the country and yet profess to be a "fair man." If you were fair as you claim then why don't you give the guy a chance. You've been at his throat since before he was elected.


I understand where you're coming from but for the life of me I cannot understand why you actually believe you'll change my mind. If you are sincere, which I don't think you are, you'd be trying to convince me with facts instead of the usual hypocritical rhetoric. Just as I will never change your mind you will never change mine. There may be some rare occasions where we may agree on some things but there won't be many, of that you can make book.

There is a specific reason  why I stopped posting terrorism updates in the 'End of the GWOT' thread.....its shame a post about the Taliban making threats to attack U.S. soil turned into an "attack and defend" regarding the political nature of the current President, and not how this effects law enforcement officers in the USA.....

Now where do we take it ftom here. create another thread How about bookemp & WC I'LL create it now see ya there!


PSD please go back to posting those articles I really did find them inlightening!

          This is just my opinion, I think that well trained civilians with a CPL would make the mentally ill (terrorists, school shooters, hotel shooters) think twice about making moves on our people. I believe it was only a poorly trained 10 man team that attacked the hotel in mumbai india and killed over a hundred civilians. I put school shooters in the same category and it just seems that there are deterrents available to us. Just to be clear when I say well trained I am not referring to the class given for citizens to obtain a CPL since it only teaches people enough to get in trouble with a handgun IMO.
