Well I've been doing some thinking... With all this talk of high probability of another terrorist attack happening this summer, and talk about how
many men al Qaeda has, etc, I've been thinking about the repercussions if such an attack was to happen. I've already asked questions on another
thread such as "how are these terrorists here?" etc. If we know about them, I hope to God we're doing everything we can to stop them.
But here is where my wondering comes more into play. Say a huge terrorist attack does happen, or even a small one. It happened, we didn't stop it,
and people died. What does that say about Homeland Security? What does it say about the Patriot Act?
I would say that if such an attack happened the Patriot Act should be deemed useless. It's supposed to protect us from terrorists, correct? So if
it doesn't do its job, why should we keep it around? Oh sure, it's there in place to protect us from future attacks... But if we're attacked
again, it will have failed. If we're attacked after that, it will have failed again. I hope we don't have another attack, but I also hope that if
we are attacked again that people start to realize that the Patriot Act is a joke. It was put there to protect us, but what happens when it fails and
Any thoughts? Criticisms? Agreements?
