    Add a measure of luck to the skill and you have a recipe for another disaster.
    That's very true - but thieves and cowards, and these people are both, look for two things: opportunity and easiness of their actions.

    Anything that can get in their way stalls off their actions.

    Not that I am for their actions but is it any different to planting a bomb or flying one over people and dropping one on them? As Bill Maher once said and paid the price for, kind of hard to be considered a coward if you are walking into your certain death.

    And yes we need to do what we can to limit how much damage they can do.

    And I would agree with that except they are blanket statements that are not conditional and the why of the actions taken.

    If in defense of themselves and their country, then it can be deemed justifiable for a good cause. And yes, that comes from a point of view but there are certain absolute truths in this world that make actions justifiable or not justifiable.

    People who walk into crowds with explosive devices for the sake of blowing up people are cowards and fools. They are afraid to live their own lives to the fullest possible and in their own fear they take others with them.

    The question is, why do we let people in to this country with such intentions.

    We didnt have a problem interning Japanese after Pearl Harbour.

    What has changed ??

    That thing looks like grandstanding police presents. Its not to catch bad guys but to send them elsewhere. The guy up there would be a fish in a barrel if any real bad asses show up. I wonder how uptight he would get when that generator takes a dump.
