destruction as the hurricane. But where is our Country, did the rest of Country die along with New Orleans... NO. So then what could the terrorists
really do that could compare in magnitude, blow up A building, shoot a few hundred people....
I think this event should show a lot of people exactly how much FEAR promoted by the government is responsable for the threat of terrorism.
When you look at what nature can do and compare it with Terrorism, really apart from the 'fear' of an attack, Terrorism is not much of a blow.
The government will use this as Martial Law 101, it's already started to show it's colours by the fact that they are focusing on 'crime' rather
than aid. Let the people die because we gotta save the playstations!!
If this government is smart, they'll 'allow' another attack in another state, or smaller multiple attacks across states which forces Martial Law
across the board under the basis of an economical crisis, stretched FEMA resources and a code red threat.
The coup is completed, you now have Martial Law and an excuse. Bush can deliver a big speach in which it's obvious he's practised all the big words
before hand and emotional chords can be played. Martial Law will be justified because of what nature did, revenging war will be justified because of
what the 'terrorists' did when America was 'on it's knees'.
The speach will go something along the lines of 'we will stand tall', 'we won't give in', 'we won't be intimidated', 'insert 911 reference
here' etc. etc.
