    There is only one answer and in America it could only be implemented state by state in a fell swoop...disarm the people and instate martial law...if America doesn't go that way it must INEVITABLY disintergrate back to the lawless west, it is pretty darn close to that in some places. There are no go areas.

    You have to take it to the logical conclusion and consider what the scenario will be if the dollar collapses and money becomes worthless....it is what is going to happen. Man...I do tremble because America is our big brother.

          From what I gather the Saudis and the Russians warned us about those guys.
          So maybe the intelligence agencies should start reading their e-mail.
          That would be a good start.

              The problem with this sort of thing is the intensely political nature of it. The Boston bombing cost two victims their lives and closed a city, while the war on terror is costing the US $100 billion per year. Why spend so much? Is it a cost effective way to make the population safer?

              To put it into context, the UK spends about the equivalent of $2.5 million per life lost due to accidents on prevention strategies, and a little less on road deaths (I expect the US does roughly the same). $100B per year for two mainland deaths in a decade works out at half a trillion dollars per death. Even including 9/11 in the figures the cost only comes down to about a billion per death.

              It seems like the terrorists have won to some extent when two small devices can close a city. When the IRA were running around England planting their nail bombs, at most a street was closed. The police did their job, quietly, detecting the criminals where possible and hindering their activities otherwise.

              Terrorism can only cause terror if the population is complicit in allowing terror to dominate their lives. The chance of being killed in an act of terror is so low that you can't pick out 9/11 even as a blip in the death rates from other causes in the US (New York's violent death rate was about the same in 2001 as 2000).

              There is always the risk of death from violent acts on any day for any of us. If we live in terror and give up freedoms as a result, then we have already lost. What is it we are fighting for if it not to preserve our way of life?
              Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. -- Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759

                  No, thats not what is needed, the real problem is there is to much big brother dictating as it is, and the other fact that most of the populace is dependent on big brother to just exist, so they grumble and complaine but they still can't shake that need for a parent be it goverment or religions, so few stand up and demand their independence back and when they do they are attacked by other slaves and cheer on the police state you stupidly wish for us..

                  The other factor is the brainwashing from cradle to grave which you seem to be one of the poster nations for such elitist mentality through history.

                  Anderson Cooper, Bill big mouth will tell you who did it, and the indoctrinated will go into their hate mongering possible reasons and remedies that never expose the real enemy hidden in plain sight.

                  Banks steal you saps blind, and the military kills your sons and daughters for corperate greed and other BS! and you still can't grasp who the real enemy is, so the american populace is the problem not some CIA taught terrorist, or FBI stooge.

                    Deal extremely harshly with those who perpetrate these acts.

                    Deal even more harshly with those who try to excuse their behavior.

                      1. Arm every adult citizen. Give them safety courses and courses on how to maintain and use small arms.

                      2. Tighten the boarders. Maintain the fence around the boarder and deport every illegal immigrant from our country. Deport immigrants with known terrorist connections.

                      3. Swiftly try and execute those that perpetrate terrorist acts.

                        So the answer to terrorism causing two deaths in the last decade is to put another 100 million guns into civilian hands and lock down the country?

                          How would this have prevented the Boston bombing?

                          2. Tighten the boarders. Maintain the fence around the boarder and deport every illegal immigrant from all countries. Deport immigrants with known terrorist connections.
                          The bombers got here legally. And they didn't exactly need to cross a fence to immigrate.

                          3. Swiftly try and execute those that perpetrate terrorist acts.
                          Swiftly, sure. Because we don't want to take our time finding out why they did it, or if they have associates out there. Yeah, let's just do this all real chop-chop.

                            What a despicable thing to say. You are basically fine with generalizing a whole group based on the actions of a few, but you are not stopping there, you actually want to punish the entire group based on the actions a few. And when you are done with that, you want to blow up their sacred site for good measure.

                            That you use the word Angel in your name and call yourself a Christian is ridiculous in light of such statements. You are calling out for a grave injustice and a terrorist act against people who have nothing to do with any terrorist act.
                            "By the tender mercy of our God, the dawn from on high will break upon us to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace." (Luke 1:78-79)

                            The Light Eternal, breaking through,
                            the world to gleam anew;
                            His beams have pierced the core of night,
                            He makes us children of the light.

                            -Martin Luther

                              It was a running gunfight.
                              They lost a cop in the middle of it.
                              What were they suposed to do?
