  • Hopefully our "intell" is accurate & allows us to be prepared to prevent it.

  • My thoughts are I cannot live in constant fear and panic about what MAY happen. I can only put my trust in the men and women who do their job everyday to try and protect us...and be vigiliant. Enjoy each day, tomorrow is never promised.

    I hate using the term, then the terrorists win.....but a terror network WANTS to kill you , but they also want to disrupt their targets daily lives, make them live in fear....terrorize them....I won't let that happen.

  • This is the point where we hope the government is actually doing their job. I can't do anything about an attack on US soil. I have six months worth of flour, basics, and my neighbor has a huge generator that we can use if everything comes crashing down. Next year, we should have our own generator. Not much else you can do but hope.

  • I hope all those people who get paid to make sure we know what the terrorist don't want us to know are doing their jobs well.

  • We shall see what we shall see. This threat exists every year.

  • I hope not. I plan to keep my eyes open and take reasonable precautions, but I refuse to cancel my plans and hole up like a hermit in my house!

  • Wouldn't be surprised. Preparations for a standstill in your environment of up to one month is always a good idea. Water, food, medicines and paper supplies. Warm clothing, candles, batteries, radio and it wouldn't hurt to own a bike...good exercise. It just makes good sense to be prepared in case of an emergency. Other than that, as sweetakins said, be aware but go about your routine.

  • I think most have realized that this may or may not happen at any time. No longer do we have the comfort level we had for years after 9/11. I really don't see America as being frozen with rear over the prospect.
