Stop terrorism at the source

How can anyone believe that a country readying for war with germ-warfare is not going to use it on someone's country - maybe our own country?

This is a different world we live in today. The enemy is not going to come in ships and planes to attack us. It's going to be a different kind of war.

We have already had one example of one kind of war with 9/11 and the Twin Towers.

The other possibility is germ warfare. If the enemy had not gotten anxious to make a showing with the Twin Towers, it could have been much more severe.

If the United States cannot stop drugs from coming into the country, how can we stop biological warfare?

It could be brought in a little at a time to all major cities in the U.S. and stored until the time was at the enemy's choosing to set it off simultaneously across the United States.

If it can happen it will happen.

Problems don't just go away. There has to be some effort to correct problems or they just get more severe until something more serious happens.

We cannot stop terrorists from coming into the United States. We can only try. We have to stop the source.
