I just dont think it would be THAT hard, if they really were out there and plotting....especially if the terrorists didnt give a hoot about personal survival.
There's no war here dude, but be careful getting a cab out of any city on any weekend....aussies will swing a punch at anything, for a taxi home.
I am more scared of bogans than terrorists.....

I was on a peak hour train home 2 months ago in brissy, and this Islamic dude was frantically writing the same sentence *over and over again in a note pad....pages and pages of the same sentence.
Lots of people were clearly scoping it out...it was unusual behaviour I guess. I was sitting right beside him, and asked if his work was a religious thing.
He said yes, smiled winningly, and carried on. Explained that it was part of the discipline of his religion.....
Truth to tell, a large part of me wanted to get OFF the train at the very next stop. I didnt, but it was palpable that people were frightened...sux huh?

I take on board what you have said but I can not help but believe that our
Australian government keeps 'terrorism' in our faces. I quite frankly, am sick of the hype, overkill and scare mongering.
Johnny gets on TV and it's "...we must not let the terrorists win' or "... terrorists this and terrorists that"
I strongly resist the paranoia of 'terrorism' as I am more afraid of what our government hasbeen cooking up with GWB and the NWO.
