The fools in media and our own state department are waning travelers of non-specific threats, but their hysteria defies logic.
Yes airports have been attacked before but today they are now somewhat protected at least in Europe by cops with automatic weapons. Airports are no longer the soft attractive targets they once were.
If there are going to be Mumbai, India style attack in Europe or for that matter in the United States, they will happen in places traditionally unprotected or covered by unarmed and therefore worthless security. I’m talking about rock concerts, schools, shopping malls and churches that are filled with people. What better place for terrorism than a Gun Free Zone?
It makes more sense to threaten the hard targets and attack the soft ones. One thing for sure governments despite their claims can’t protect their citizens from terror attacks. Governments are expert in insulting and aggravating their own citizens through random searches of innocent and law-abiding people. Government loves to trade pretend security for liberty.
I will take my chances with the American second Amendment and terrorists any day over Nazi style random searches.
