    Is he/she black/white/middle eastern/asian/romulan/american?

    Is a terrorist educated or stupid?

    Is a terrorist short or tall?

    Is a terrorist?

    Where do they live?  Asia?  Somalia? Yemen? Afghanistan? Pakistan?

    And why are they so unhappy with the United States?

    The point being... The World is a dangerous place and identifying a "Terrorist" based on location, race, or other easily identifiable marker is an impossible task.

    Time to bring America back in focus, protect American Borders and let those who do not live within our Borders Govern their own lives as they see fit.

      good take I agree, and leave all the rest of the world alone, concentrate here first and unless the world will all act upon terrorism, it can never be solved, (this is almost impossible task), UN is not as legit anymore

    Well spoken and honestly I have to say I somewhat agree but  many terrorists already live in the U.S. they could be your neighbor, co-worker, or the person standing next to you in a grocery store. So how would closing the borders keep them out? smile

    A borderline does not stop a terrorist...

    Now, one has to look at the motives for terrorism and go from there...

    Motive...purpose...intention....what is to be gained...

    Next to question Mr. Dick Cheney....  (no border fence or patrol will keep him or his out)

    Well it seems to me that education alone does not stop people from being gullible certainly Mr. Bomb in underpants had a good education. I think educating and feeding the poor, providing jobs where there are non will make it much harder for terrorists to find support anywhere. America does much in this way and has the worlds admiration for the way the American people get behind rebuilding the world.
    Now if they will just stop blowing it up that may help too! smile

    I don't know...

    KBR cannot even build adequate accommodations for Americans overseas....how many Americans have died because of faulty electrical work in Iraq and Afghanistan?

    Several reports were published about the shoddy craftsmanship, the untreated water, and all kinds of other garbage that our government has financed...through non-competitive bidding to companies that the V.P. and others have large amounts of shares in.....

    conflict of interest...

    or shall I say.....

      I followed much of that. It is so sad that all those crooks made and are making personal fortunes out of shoddy work. Heartbreaking for those putting in a sincere effort.

    I think we should all refer to him as the "pantie bomber."  That will probably piss them off more than anything else.

      good point! and make them think twice too. their buddies would go "dude, do you really want to be remembered as that dude whose panties were full of dynamite?"

      they'll just have to be more creative about where they hide this stuff.

      as for homeland security, they totally screwed the pooch on this one. i applaud the President for giving them a good tounge lashing. they deserved it.

    a terrorist can fit all your description.

    but talking about border,America should also leave other countries borders,let those countries handle there affairs.

    A terrorist is today's random bomber and just like the British and German bomber crews in WW2 (and the US B52 bombers of 'Nam)they use bombs indiscriminately.

    People die in wars.

    The USA has never seen air bombing on it's soil and over it's cities, Europe is more familiar, with both air and car and targeted terrorist bombing, I don't think OZ got too much from the Japanese, but I'm not sure, maybe Earnest can tell us?

    During the IRA bombing in London you knew you could just die, and indeed a friend of mine was killed in the Harrods bombing, alongside a police officer.

    Why worry.... a bomb kills you in about 10,000ths of one second!

    The key is to build your defences against the bombers, in WW2 that was searchlights and fighter command on instant alert, today it is more difficult as, like the poster says, they look just like us, and the Muslim fanatics are now able to use home grown bombers.

    But THE common denominator is MUSLIM.

    So there is one profile that will work, and maybe it's time to ask Muslims to travel on Muslim flights (open to non Muslims by choice or invitation) or allow non Muslims to travel on their own flights.... to segregate those who hate our society from those who wish to protect our way of life?

    I realise that MOST Muslims are non violent and not interested in forcing western society to accept Islamic rule.

    Just the ones with the bombs. sad

    Maybe we could build bomb chambers, at airports where each passenger had to walk alone through a bomb proof room which was designed to sniff out or explode (by radio waves) any explosive device?
