Well, it looks like Bin Laden IS still alive. I was really begining to wonder if the US got him in the mountains without knowing it. With all the money and all the man powere going into tracking this guy he remains a ghost. It's not really funny I guess, but it is pretty amazing.



Also there seems to be another "credible" threat, looming. How much stock can we really put into the government's warnings if they can't even track down a couple of men? I really don't know. But times surely have changed.



I just kinda want to throw this out there... If the government is claiming that there is a credible threat, what really is the point if we as a country don't know what to look for. Also would the government throw out a "credible" threat warning without one existing. Kind of a way to save face during a time when they are being questioned about their knowledge or lack there of, of 9/11.

EDIT: Adding on to this, I do think it's good that the government is sending out warnings. It's just that do people know what they are looking for? Hopefully they do. I remember 9/11 clearly and I walked through a total daze all day long. I visited the World Trade Center site a month after and it was the scariest scene I had ever seen. Total destruction. I still go through my normal routine like I did before 9/11, but I do wake up and check the news to make sure the world is intact. If the warnings can prevent another 9/11 I'm all for them.

There's ALWAYS another credible threat. Also, it's a lot harder to find one man than it is to find an army. Bin Laden can go somewhere and blend in. He's a little too small to be clearly seen from space.

Blah, see the thing of it is, Bin Laden will never fly a plane into a building, or blow himself up or anything. He's just a figurehead, and I'm not even sure if he's a very good one. Anyway, there's always a credible threat because your nextdoor neighbor might be planning a terrorit action RIGHT NOW~! FEEEL the PARANOIA! Anyway, let me be the first to say it here: Terrorist/Terrorism is just a buzzword. Eventually we'll get tired of looking everywhere for terrorists, just like we got tired of looking for... damn, what were they called? The Ruby Ridge/Oklahoma City/blahblahblah/White Americans killing other americans?? Cause that was the buzz of the 90's. And now for the 00's we've got terrorists again. Whatever. I lost my point. Maybe I'll try and find it later.

Oh right. What's the difference between murder/terrorism/war/hate crimes/whathaveyou?
