I for one am not going to allow a band of ridiculous religious zealots to set influence or dictate any of my standards.

Since a major element of terrorist acts is to influence a political change, discounting an increase in terror threats and possible attacks during such period would be an oversight.

Off of the top of my head, Jakarta was a month before the Australian elections, Russia is rife with these acts during and after election periods, Hamas has used these tactics and so has the IRA, Putin urged support for Bush recognizing the terror attacks during the first Iraqi election were aimed at influencing the US election and acts of terror have definitely influence the elections in Spain.

I guess you don't live in the US where the zealots have control of the white house.

Typical politician's response to this news, "Oh goody, more money to be spent."
