Tomorrow is the 5th anniversary of the terror attacks of 2001. Are the Islamo-Fascists going for another hit to celebrate?
We are fortunate to have an improved military and intelligence capability. How many times have the I-Fs been thwarted by these fine people? At least one coordinated attempt that we know of, the plot to bomb U.S. airliner flights originating from the U.K. We are overdue for another successful large scale attack.
Most likely, it will be a WMD type attack. Nuclear, biological, or chemical. This stuff freaks people out because a painful, grisly death awaits its victims. The most frightening of the three is a biological attack, possibly with some kind of hemorrhagic fever virus like ebola (please look at all the info you can stomach at this link). Two different scenarios of an attack using this method are presented in the books Executive Orders and Rainbow Six, both by Tom Clancy (and a nuclear attack in The Sum of All Fears). Worth reading.
Usama Bin Laden has recently stated that death would be preferable to life on earth among the Infidel. We'll be happy to oblige. I will personally be willing to do the job and wrap his ass in a hog hide before I bury him in a well-marked grave.
