I've read in some threads where many think it is because of President Bush and the implementation of "Homeland Security" that we have not had
another major terrorist attack. This is totally ludicrous.
I work in the wholesale building material business. IN our business we have a product called lauan plywood. This plywood is loaded onto vessels out
of Indonesia and Malaysia. These are two prime hotspots for terrorist activity and groups.
How does this plywood get here? It is loaded on a large freighter. In each of these freighters are enough crates of this plywood to fill over 2,000
TRUCKS!!! That is over 36,000 crates of plywood per vessel.
The truckers tell me they watch these crates being unloaded, and loaded right onto waiting trucks. 18 crates per truck. There is no inspection of
these crates by anyone.
Now, imagine 1 device planted into, say, every 500 crates. They arrive into businesses such as myself. We sell the crate to someone. A lumber
dealer opens said crate and BOOM!!!! That's 72 BOOMS!!! per ship.
Do you feel secure now?
It is just plain luck and lack of planning on the terrorists part that we have had no more major incidents. Plus all the terrorists are heading to
Iraz. A much shorter journey for them, and we are in their backyard.
Someone who says we are more secure today because of the actions of this administration please tell me how all these ships with containers are being
unloaded and inspected. They are NOT!!
