My question is, if this is such a big issue and concern, then why do people keep flying knowing that there is a possibility that something like this might happen?
IMO, if people quit flying, the airliners and their lobbyist would fight to change how TSA treats its customers.

I know damn near 70-90 of the military personal I have been under or had under me would never rise up against the populace and are more then willing to take the country back by force.

I am tired of hearing about people complaining about the TSA!!!!
If people honestly have no clue what they're getting into and agreeing to when they buy an airline ticket then they need to pull their heads out of their asses.
This is thepost 911 world we live in now.
If you don't like it.....DON'T FLY!!!!!!
If enough people DON'T FLY then the problem WILL go away!!!!
If you DO FLY, then STFU about how badly you were treated when you go thru the TSA's molestation

Well, I hope your right, and if they take action I will jump up right behind them and have their back.
But a lone individual, I don't care if you are a Navy seal. They will more than likely fail. Eve sky marshals are not likely to succeed against multiple targets. It has to be a team effort or no one will go home.edit on 26-6-2011 by snowen20 because: (no reason given)

I'm sorry but what makes you think that the TSA's groping of the elderly, children, teenagers, mentally challenged, cancer survivors, etc, ad frickin' nauseum is in any way exclusive to their efficacy? Were there any reported cases which resulted in the finding of explosives, knives or weapons of any kind on these individuals? Were any of those people indicted in known terrorist activities? Was Susie Castillo, former Miss USA, hiding a suspicious package in her vagina? Was Wil Wheaton hiding a box cutter under his junk?
I'll ignore the rest of your straw man argument. It doesn't warrant a reply.

I'm glad to op is so concerned about a minor delay for an old woman and has 0 concern for the family's and individuals aboard the aircraft.

This thread is getting ridiculous it’s like everybody is some CIA counterterrorism expert with 20 years experience.
These days’ violent Islamic terrorists want to blow up a plane rather than hijack a plane
the only way to detect the bomb and prevent the attack is to find it before it gets on the plane. If a terrorist is hijacking the plane, odds are they are planning on holding it ransom, not flying it into buildings. If you look at a history of terrorism and planes, most of the time the either try to blow the thing up or they take it for ransom. Turning into Rambo in either of these situations will get people killed. Flight 93 was a unique case, in most hostage hijackings that would have got people unnecessarily killed.
You all need to stop thinking passenger 57 is a accurate depiction of how to take down a plane full of hijackers.
