No associated poll - moved to US politics forum


Just one simple question.
When has the last terrorist activity (killing, bombing, airplanes, or even trains) occured here in the US since 9/11?

Insignificant I guess.

How so? It was a serious question.

How in the world are we less safe without nothing happening since?

In the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings (August 7, 1998), hundreds of people were killed in simultaneous car bomb explosions at the United States embassies in the East African capital cities of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and Nairobi, Kenya. The attacks, linked to local members of the al Qaeda terrorist network headed by Osama bin Laden, brought bin Laden and al Qaeda to international attention for the first time, and resulted in the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation placing bin Laden on its Ten Most Wanted list.

Along with the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, the 1996 Khobar Towers attacks in Saudi Arabia, and the 2000 attack on the USS Cole in Yemen, the Embassy Bombing is one of the major anti-American terrorist attacks that preceded the attacks of September 11th.

The last attacks happened a while back. So just because nothing has happened three years after 9/11 doesn't mean something won't happen in 10 years. And I was thinking, wouldn't stuff like this always happen? Wouldn't there be some group pissed enough to wanna go out and bomb something or someone?

Well, if we're talking about terrorist attacks outside the US, we have lost a couple thousand of our soldiers through terrorist attacks after 9/11

U?

Absolutely. So truely, we cannot say that we are less safe than we were. In order for us to be worse off, something had to have happened here. Right?

Whoa, calm down there. I didn't say anything about the Iraqi civilians. We were just talking about whether Americans are safer or not. If we bring other people into the equation, it gets a lot more complicated.
