Hmmm, wouldn't that be IRONY if the city that produced the Manhattan Project were to get a taste of its own medicine?
Why bother calling it anything else?
If you live in New York, move. Its not justifiable to live there any more, its just a big target on a map.

TextDC is most likely the next target seeing as the DC operation was only half completed. Al Qaeda is notorious for finishing what they start. I hate to say this but it will most likely be with more hijacked planes full of passengers and loaded with fuel. Dulles is the most likely boarding spot for the hijackers instead of Reagan National since Reagan National doesnt handle the bigger planes cause its runway is way to short. They will want as big of a plane with as much fuel as possible and that says Dulles. Dulles was one of the only airports in the world large enough to handle the Concordes.
TextHijacking a plane out of Reagan National is made even more unlikely since its easily the most monitored airport in the world since its right in the city. Any plane that deviates from allowed flight paths will most certanly be shot down be it directly over the city or not. This time it may be 4 planes or more that are hijacked to ensure at least one makes it to Capitol Hill. I live less than 15 min south of the city and recall very vividly the thick black smoke spiraling skyward from the burning Pentagon that morning while I was driving to work. Sadly I think Im still going to see more soon.

there will never be a nuclear bomb attack on the US:
1. Al-queda or other group will never be sophisticated enough to construct or get an A-bomb, even a big country like Iran with an extensive industrial infrustructure had to struggle to develop it, but countries like that will never give a bomb to al-queda or similar group.
