Let's say you are a terrorist organization. What do you stand to gain from killing a bunch of kids? It's not exactly like people are going to flock to your side after you do that. Furthermore, the reprisals will be very brutal. You will just have re-energized your opposition.

I know. I ask that question alot. The reality is there are so many unguarded targets in the U.S that carrying out an attack on our infrastructure would be relatively easy. Resevoirs, electrical substation and generation plants, Bridges, ect..... I live on the Mississippi river right by a loch and dam. No security there. In reality all it would take is for a boat filled to the brim with explosives to drive right up to the dam and blow it all to hell. Probably killing thousands along the way as a 10-15 foot wall of water rushes down river flooding and consuming everything in it's path until it got down to the next loch and dam . Which because of all the stress and excess water, it would severly weaken the structure, forcing the dam operator to open the flood gates. So theoretically this would start a chain reaction that could wind up travelling the entire distance to the gulf. Further more crippling the trade routes for the heavy barge traffic that uses the Mississippi river.
