I don't think it should be scary. It's predictable.
For some strange reason, a lot of people go about in blissful ignorance of 'criminal' thought processes. Just as you will use facebook, twitter,
text messaging, calls, walkie-talkies, etc to communicate with people to get a dinner group together... so will anyone else to accomplish whatever
goals they want to.
I guess many people don't like to think about it or acknowledge the existence of such destructive thought processes, and that is why it is scary for
them to think about it.... but it's just a fact of life. You use your knowledge, experience, and resources to accomplish your goals. Why should
'bad people' be any different?
Scary is the fact that a bunch of people can be incited to violence as a means of protest against the death of a young man (because if I die, I want
people to remember me by killing hundreds of others and placing bounties on the heads of individuals).
Scary is the fact that our nation is in serious economic trouble due to the failings of centralized government banking... and all the people seem to
care about is which "Dancing With the Stars" team a candidate favors (or something equally relevant).
That's scary.... the idea that I may leave on this deployment and not have a country to come back to.
'The Enemy' being smart and resourceful is to be expected. It's a damned miracle they haven't hit a major water reservoir or blasted a major
airport hub with small pox. It's not really a matter of if - but when. When they have their planning and coordination down pat and it combines with
a lapse in our security measures (that, while we try to reduce those - do happen) - they'll score another big hit.
