if you weren't already having them:
The general consensus of police, military, and national intelligence is that it’s only a matter of time before this nation experiences an incident reminiscent of Beslan or Mumbai: armed, trained, committed terrorists massacring the innocent with automatic weapons and explosives.
I know a lot of you reading this have been worrying about exactly this for years; how many people do you know who either dismiss it or- even worse- flatly refuse to think about it?
If you're not really familiar with Beslan, or have forgotten the numbers, Lawdog has some info for you, including
In all, 344 civilians died at the Beslan school two years ago. 186 of them were children.
They'd really, really like to do this to us, too; only a question of when.
And to every muslim out there who refuses to call down the terrorists and sympathizers, every muslim and liberal who whines about 'RACISM!' and such when anyone dares to mention this: just what do you think the reaction will be when this happens? You'd be a hell of a lot better off actually doing something- which includes denouncing the terrorists and sympathizers- now and maybe helping prevent this happening, than you will be whining about being 'lumped in with the extremists' later.
Update: German police apprehended three armed al-Qaida suspects on Friday in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia. The detentions were because of “a concrete and imminent” threat and have fulfilled expectations of a “Mumbai-style” attack planned in Western Europe.
