    Local news just ran a story regarding sending a group of people "in the quiet of the night" to Israel to train in handling terrorism attacks. The article showed footage of EMS, fire department etc. Out of curiosity, I googled the company (Stratfor) and they are based in Austin. They specialize in security and intelligence???? http://stratfor.ecnext.com/stratfor/corp/CorporateKit.html

    gonna have to look in to this one !! :scratch:

    Considering their history, the Israelis are probably the best people for dealing with terrorism, no?

    Hey, they get to deal with that stuff for real about once a week or so.....

    Which reminds me, I'm thinking of building a fence around my back yard....I wonder if I should ask some Israelis for advice? ;-)

    I think Putin may be asking that question about Chechnya, for good cause. Think we should be doing same regarding Mexico.

    Agreed....

    I just finished a book on the ancient Roman Empire....to make a long story short....the Roman Empire ended because they stopped guarding their borders and were over run by the Goths, Vandals, Huns, Francs, etc etc. etc

    Agreed! On the ignoring and the Barbarians. The Roman Empire found it too costly to defend their empire/homeland, thus lost it. Seems to be what many are arguing for.

    I can't remember where I saw it, but some web site claimed their is a secret plan for the US to annex Canada and South America in order to exploit it's natural resources, people, etc. It also used the combining of the US & Mexico SSI system as proof of this.......... :rolleyes:
