Given that he's offering a truce from a position of weakness?
Yes. I feel safe.
If he could attack us, he would do so, w/o warning.

As safe as ever.

While the country is undoubtedly vulnerable to some sort of attack, (IIRC) the odds of being a part of that attack are much smaller than being involved in a fatal car crash. The probability of a fatal car crash is not enough to keep me off the road. So, meh

So there is another new tape of OSB warning of attacks in the US. Do you feel secure here? Why or why not?
Yes I feel secure because Dick Cheney said there was no credible intelligence supporting another planned terrorist attack in the U.S.

And I'm a Liberal... I'm sure there are some Conservatives here who have less faith in Mr. Cheney and the Administration regarding Homeland Security and are currently trying to get people worked up into a frenzy of fear. Weird.

Good point and my thoughts exactly when I heard. Though he has been somewhere for a year. Perhaps in Saudi Arabia saving up for new biological weapon?

He must have sold us a lot of oil at rediculouse prices per barrel to have gotten that much money in 1 year.:2razz:
