Are We Really Secure Now?

Thursday, November 6, 2003

Not sure how secure we are but . . . .

we're certainly running scared, and that is the worst of it. We appear to be like rabbits, allowing each worning, each story of terror or mayhem to affect our lives at a deep level, eve if the tragedy is far removed from us. The media coverage of every death will be the death of us all. Sign in to see full entry.

Contradictions . . . .

We are told how important security is, especially at the airposts. we went in with enthusiastic foolhardiness and overdid it. Now, for one reason or another, we are cutting back on the people who carry out security duties. Do we need it or don't we? It's easy to say one thing, but often difficult to...

What a joke

The government imposed security is really a joke. Even college kids, journalists and anyone else who cares to try can get anything aboard a plane. Imagin how successful someone would be who really wanted, dearly wanted, to do damage and kill lots of people. Homeland Security is a sham, a way to... Sign in to see full entry.

Personalities of Security

It would seem to me that the money would be better spent on assassinating those leaders of nations supporting terrorist activities, rather than beefing up defenses. Additionally, we should take all the money in US accounts in any way related to such people or nations, giving them 90 days to come... Sign in to see full entry.

Cost of Security

What costs, real and perceived, are related to increased security? We have, of course, the cost of more TSAs, more police, more firefighters, barricades for key buildings, sophisticated electronic detectors, and such. Those all cost us lots of money. Do they really help enough to justify the cost.... Sign in to see full entry.

Terrorists in the military . . .

Recent news makes me wonder how many terrorists are in the military. Not only do we have the recent airman and chaplain from GITMO, but there was also the sergeant in Iraq who threw the grenade into a tent of his fellow soldiers. Were there any more such incidents that were not reported? If the... Sign in to see full entry.

When Rather Than If . . .

Who is more terrible?

We have a terrorist scheduled to come into town this afternoon. Her name is Isabel. Are we ready? Is there anything we humans can do to thwart Mother Nature, she who is more terrible than any human terrorist when she wants to be? I fear we are looking at death and destruction that is inevitable.

Security at a local level . . .

Just how secure are we when judges reduce the charges and/or release people who have had multiple instances of DUI? We lose more people to drunk driving than we do to terrorism, yet look at the vast disparity in how we approach each. Sign in to see full entry.

Are we secure in our neighborhoods?

In the most recent Virginian-Pilot there is a story about someone's house being set afire by a neighbor with whom the homeowner had been haveing a dispute. Seems to me that most of our real threats are internal. Sign in to see full entry.
