    Links at site. First the story of gas plans in NYC, now this. Are we complacent? Realistic? In denial?

    Interesting article. I think the thing is that a single act of violence which can be for motives having nothing to do with terror and committed by a single person acting alone, just don't set off the bells and whistles for the rest of us.

    I think a far greater danger is in the fact that the recently disclosed gas attacks were aborted, not because our FBI was on to the plot, but because the intended attackers didn't think it was spectacular enough.

    The best weapon in the WOT is intel...and we're sadly lacking in an efficient system for its delivery.

    Ok, a random person that just happened to be Muslim, attacks unprovoked another person, who just happens to be Jewish. Right.

    Well, the area was largely jewish, chances were that the victim of any shooting in that theatre had a greater chance of being jewish than not.

    There isn't enough information about the attacker or his motives for me to make a judgment as to whether he was a jihadi or just a lone psycho.

    I'd say it's a warning of such, yes. A communion if you will, with others that would carry out jihad.

    Can you explain something to me?

    Why is it that people like you have no problem holding judgment, or seeing the other side of a situation when it comes to things like this, but you are so judgmental when it comes to things that do not fit your politics?

    On another thread just a few days ago you had no problem calling the Swift Boat Vets liars. But now here you are, saying that this crime committed against a Jew needs more information.

    I only ask you because it is my observation that many liberals are anti-Jewish. By that, I do not mean that they are anti-semetic. I don't think they think about it that much to be anti-semetic. It's all related to Bush hatred.

    There is an entire faction of the liberal block who believe that Bush is using Israel as a way to make the End Of Days come about. A lot of them believe that Bush's devotion to his Christian faith, and his inner circle of advisors, many of whom are Jews, are trying to orchestrate the end of the world. This is not the fringe who believe this. Go to any board that has a liberal membership, and you'll see it for yourself. There are many people out there who think that the United States support for Israel is a Christian plot. They really do.

    So how come you are so quick to call the Swiftees liars, but you need to read more about a Muslim killing a Jew in a movie theater?
