Remember this... - Israeli Police Warned of Possible Terror Attacks Israeli intelligence officials have alerted police about possible multiple terrorist attacks... descriptions of the threat have been deliberately vague to avoid leaks... it could come by air, sea or land... targets could include holy sites, schools or hospitals... the attacks would not necessarily either target or be limited to Israel. What was one of the complaints you heard on the evening news after the terror threat level was raised to Orange?... "it's not specific enough." This, I think, reflects an American expectation to have the details laid out, plain and clear. Reality strikes as it will though and things are rarely to cut and dried. Since 9/11 we have been expecting other large scale attempts to attack the United States. So far we have been lucky enough to avoid, thwart, or escape them. If the trend continues, will we see efforts by terrorists to downscale their attacks? Will we see the advent of suicide bombers, car bombs, and the like, here in the U.S.?
