Karlin, the threat is very real, it could happen at any time, whenever they decide, because 911 was an inside job. Our borders are wide open, anybody can just walk in. 911 was just an excuse to go to war in Iraq.
Your post is very true, but the cold harsh reality is that they only care about themselves, no one else. They have taken money from our seniors on medicare to fight this war, leaving them unable to live or even pay for their medicine.
They trick our young people into going to war with promises of money and education. They are now going into prisons and even juvenile hall to recruit young people, actually the hopeless that have no place to turn. They prey on our misguided patriotic youngsters, only to abandon them on their return home.
