All it takes is to send some people over who can leggaly enter the US and tell them to get the equipment to pull off some attack. The future attacks will IMO be smaller attacks, but will occur more frequently. If people can get around Israel with bombs attached to them, dont think it cant happen in the US. There security at the borders and outlying Settlements is far superior to what we have.


I didn't mean to say they couldn't happen. But, as AMM said, we're looking for them. That, and you've got wonder, why are they waiting? It's been 2 and a half years sicne 9/11, you'd think that if they were setting up cells, they'd have done SOMETHING by now. Which means they either aren't here in appreciable numbers, or our boys are doing their job.

I'm sure that eventually there will be more attacks on the US, but the reason they haven't occured yet isn't because they're orchestrated by the US.

Its a good question as to why they are waiting and I simply cant answer that. Im sure our government is doing its best and have stopped many attacks that will never make the mainstream. I cant imagine what they are watiing for, maybe a target large enough to hit?? Maybe to get everyone in position for future attacks....I dont have a clue.
The closest thing that has crossed my mind over the last year on why they are waiting is because they are trying to find out a way to target the 2005 inaguaration of the next president when most of our government will be present. But thats simply a wild guess.

just an opinion.9/11 was a large scale attack on some heavy duty american institutions by someone with the resources ie:money,motivation(religious,idealogical)and access to information.as far as the cia goes,they could not fund it,they could give strategic info(remember oppenhimer and his little toy)and just let it happen.after9/11 do they really have to do any more for now.how would you follow up an attack like that.you can't get much bigger than 9/11.maybe mad cow disease,sars,chicken flu,anthrax????(remember terrorism is meant to instill fear about every step you take,every door you open,every lettter you get,every bite or drink you take.)

1, security is better than expected.

2. most of them have gone to iraq and afganistan.

3. fate of osama is unknown.

4. they are still there maybe but planning a really big one.

5. they started to think what they do is the best way and keep wondering now they see what they could have as they life in USA.

6. terrorist shifted there new attacks to partners of the usa. like UK. NL. ect.

7. because of thighter dutch policies on imigrants its harder for them to travel through Netherlands were they planned and worked some of it out. Before they headed to usa.

8. They are still waiting on info from mayor cell leaders. currently being held in guantanomo bay.

The "shadow" Government doesn't rig elections, it creates elections. If you had the amount of money that the world's elite do, you could play games that deal with people's livelihood too. Just look at Oracle's hostile takeover bid of PeopleSoft. This has nothing to do with Oracle and PeopleSoft's marketshare. Sure, just like any company, Oracle want's to monopolize the market. But the real reason Oracle wants PeopleSoft is because of a bitter rivalry between Oracle's CEO, Larry Ellison, and his one time protege, Craig Conway, CEO of PeopleSoft. All it is is a Larry Ellison with an over-inflated ego and a pissed off attitude that the person he once worked with would tread on his domain.
What gentler way to show your old friend that you are "better" than to try and buy him out and "delete" his company from the market place (as well as get rid of all the employees of PeopleSoft, if you have heard what Larry Ellison has been saying as of late)?
See what types of things you can try (and sometimes accomplish) and do when you have billions of dollars? The Earth is just like the strategy game "Risk" for the world's elite. Just like the famous line in the novel Dune "Whoever controls the Spice, controls the Universe!" The same goes for our world, "whoever controls the economy, controls the Universe!" The economy being the fiction that is "money."
Anyways, just look at the progression of presidents. Its kind of like odds and evens. We get a "good" one, we get a "bad" one. And vice versa. It is done to play with the human consciousness. One president will make most of society feel up, the next will make it feel down. It is probably to bolster expectations. So you get a "crappy" president, the next one has got to be better then the one you have, right? When you get that next president, everything seems better, and thats when you start to get blindsided by their actions. You see, its the actions of the "good" president you should be worried about - because those are the actions you don't notice.

You see before we were not kicking al quada's ass, now we are, it's simple really. Also, comparing us to Israel were the bombers can simply walk or drive over is not comparing apples to apples.

ok, let me step out on a limb..albeit it is a very thick limb...the reason that there have been no other 'terrorist' attacks is that....are you sitting down??
..the 'terrorists' were not foreign...there has not been a sucsessful foreign attack on u.s. soil for decades.

how easy would it be to do a true terrorist act in america?? if you live here you know....that is part of why i know that a 'forgein terrorist cell' is not established in america. once they found out how easy it would be..the u.s. would be like a big isreal..attacks everyday...........

will the 'terrorist' wait untill just before or after the 'elections'??? or will they be given the opportunity then?????


The terrorists were not foreign? How little you really know. I hope you stop claiming your oppinions as facts because most were and are foreign. I have first hand experience with the subject and you really should stop your lies and making claims which are completely false.

Al-Queda is not hamas.. Al-Queda has a large ocean which makes supplying their operatives more difficult. It is this reason they only go for major attacks here every 3 - 4 years. We were attacked in 1993 - 1994, 1998, 2001, and again we will be attacked in 2004. Every attack has gotten progressively more lethal. I would expect the use of WMD in some form on the next attack. Al-Queda does not have the same amount of people in the organization to allow daily suicide attacks. Within 2 months they would probably have nobody left inside the USA to do bombings. They have to rely on large scale attacks every few years.

this is "controlled terrorism", well thats what i like to call it...see America needed this attack 2 go to "war" on "terror" so that why it was ALLOWED to happin...why haven't any more "terrorist attacks" occured yet???

AMERICA DOES NOT NEED THEM YETT!!! come on people think...if "terrorists"

REALLY hated America they would implement "attacks" almost daily (like Palestine and Israel)... it's NOT that difficult to build/buy a bomb and blow up a bus...America does not even have armed guards on buses, but Israel DOES and we dont get ANY "attacks"!!! it does not take a genius to build a bomb...you can buy BOOKS on building bombs!!!

NOTE: THIS IS ONLY A THEORY OF MINE SO WHEN POTING COMMENTS PLEASE DONT DISRESPECT ME...

Your answer lies in my post just above this one to why we don't see suicide bombings like Israel/Palestinians conflict. Palestinians have thousands of potential suicide bombers living miles away from Israel. Al-Queda has maybe 20 - 50 operatives inside the USA. How long do you think suicide bombing could last? Instead they plan and conduct large scale attacks every few years because it is all they can do yet it is effective.

You say terrorist attacks haven't happened since 9/11 but your wrong. The anthrax was terrorism, the bombing of the Yale university mailroom shortly after 9/11 was terrorism, and the plane crash in NY shortly after take off was terrorism. Al-Queda realized it is too difficult to make small attacks on a regular basis with its limited amount of people. An attack will happen of the 9/11 caliber every 3 - 4 years and we are due for another this year.

America didnt wish 9/11 upon themselves...And another reason why there hasnt been an attacks, the terrorists' are scared. Well, countries are anyway. Iraq for example, they didnt want anything to do with the Americans, but because they had oil, bush had to go stick his nose in someone else's business, and whats worse is that he dragged us Aussies into it aswell! Not that it's all Bush's fault, Howard is a pussy. It's as plain as that. he can't do anything by himself, he is the worst prime-minister ever. He follows Bush like a lost puppy! And then it's not all America's fault, they went there, got rid of Saddam, and what thanks do they get? They get an American citizens car lit up, the bodies pulled out and mutilated. From my point of view, Iraq are just digging themselves a deeper grave with the whole decapitation thing...

Even for terrorists it's hard to get someone to sacrifice their life for there cause,but I do think there is some terrorists in the U.S and they have to be planning big because if they just wanted to kill people and make a scene they would get a couple of machine guns and go to the nearest mall or wallmart and open fire, And we all know how easy it is to get a gun in the U.S.

The reason we went into Iraq was for multiple reasons. Bring the war on terror to the region rather then the region coming onto US soil. Our allies in Israel have escalating violence in the region. Missile defense technology is needed in the region. If we went to war with North Korea without Iraq our supply lines are too long and Iraq is a great strategic location for supplies. Iran may fall which could result in civil unrest. Iran may already have or be close to nuclear missile technology. Syria continues to fund hamas and islamic jihad and expresses teaching to hate the west.

You see Bush didnt just sit around and one day say "I'm gonna go finish what we started." We have a multi billion dollar super computer that calculates present and future models of where the world is going. It creates a possibilty of millions of scenarios and then returns t he best possible action for our government to take. The best options was to get into the region ASAP and what better country to get us in there then to go into Iraq.. We didnt want to attack anyone but the Saudi's wanted us out so we needed a new "home base" in the region especially with the way the world looks in 10 years from now. We are expecting a major war to break out and aside from wars the possibility of cataclysm or asteroid impacts changing the earth within the next 20 - 30 years. Many countries don't have the ability to help their own people so we need to be there in case the sh*t hits the fan. Our only option was to remove saddam and use Iraq for many many reasons including terrorism, Iran, North Korea, defending Israel, economic, and world defense from ICBM's. Our computer models said this was the best option.

It is all very basic psychology by a power hungry US government.

Take any group of people, say a bus load of people that do not know each other, all individuals. Then suddenly the driver says HEY they are trying to wreck our bus and kill us all. Pretty quickly everyone bonds together into a group. WE the passengers must fight this menace TOGETHER.

So the US government says Communism is the great evil, the cold war is a just cause and WE Americans will all fight this great threat together. Wave the flag, be patriotic, and all that stuff...........

No cold war these days, so another enemy must be found. Ah yes the terrorists are out to get us, we need harsher laws and give up some freedoms. Don't want to volunteer ? We will conscript you !

It is all a great con. The last thing the bastards want is Americans beginning to wake up and realise they are being shafted by the government. It will happen soon enough, but by then there will be martial law and the President will use his emergency powers to set up a dictatorship in Washington.

Anyone that objects will be arrested and shot as a terrorist and enemy of the American people. Heil Hitler ! Ooops, I mean Heil Bush/Kerry !

You though everything was going to change after Clinton, Ha ha ha, the joke is on you.

Hitler knew a thing or two, it was the Jews and the Gypsies that were the terrorists in Germany at the time. It created massive national pride, these non Germans would be rounded up and exterminated for the good of the Fatherland.

Germans would free the world and build their Third Reich. Just as America will build a new world democracy, and kill and torture to do it.

Too far fetched ?............. just wait and see.
