    c. Billy Graham
    d. Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of

    Nope, ..I really don't see a pattern here to justify
    profiling, do you? So, to ensure we Americans never
    offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing
    us, airport security screeners will no longer be
    allowed to profile certain people. They must conduct
    random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids,
    airline pilots with proper identification, secret
    agents who are members of the President's security
    detail, 85-year old Congressmen with metal hips, and
    Medal of Honor winning and former Governor Joe Foss,
    but leave Muslim Males between the ages 17 and 40
    alone lest they be guilty of profiling.

    Maybe Gloria Aldreds and other dunder-headed attorneys
    along with Federal Justices that want to thwart common
    sense, feel doubly ashamed of themselves -- if they
    have any such sense. As the writer of the award
    winning story "Forrest Gump" so aptly put it, "Stupid
    is as
    "Watch what people are cynical about, and one can often discover what they lack. -- Gen. George S. Patton

    I wish some of these do-gooders "feel good" people would get over getting their feelings hurt and realize that there aren't too many african americans or over-weight white guys out trying to blow up people and sometimes profiling just means your doing your job right instead of wasting time.

    What I wish is that some people such as yourself would pay more attention to the world around you. Want a good example? Look back a few years in the forums. Seenbad and I had this out. While we were doing that, a group of African Americans in Portland happened to be connected with terrorists, and were tracked down with good, solid police work. Had the authorities focused their work on Arabs, they'd have never caught this group. But hey, that's just one instance, right? How about the black man that tossed a grenade into an officer's tent just prior to the ground war in 2003? Yup, there's a pattern forming here... One of the guys in Portland happened to have been a former Guard member. And that DC sniper...

    Hey, maybe we should be looking at blacks, eh?

    That's all simplistic bullshit, and thinking in stupidly simplistic ways only makes us more vulnerable. But hey, as long as we feel good and safe, who cares, right?

    Not exactly sure what the point was to all that, but what I was trying to get across was that a very large percentage of terrorists are not african american or white. Please don't try and tell me otherwise. As far as targeting people going on to busses, plains, and subways, mathmatically they would be better off searching people that fit the profile of the terrorists and people shouldn't get mad about getting searched.

    And that you're perfectly happy to not pay any attention to white and black and Asian terrorists. Gotcha.

    Please don't try and tell me otherwise.
    Why don't you tell me about the religious wars in the Balkans, and we'll see if we can't figure out of all radical Muslims are Arab. Show me the abortion clinic bomber that's an Arab. Tell me about Oklahoma City.

    As far as targeting people going on to busses, plains, and subways, mathmatically they would be better off searching people that fit the profile of the terrorists and people shouldn't get mad about getting searched.
    Mathematically, eh? I'm glad the people that protect us are concerned about all terrorists, not just certain kinds. I know you don't understand this, and that baffles me. It seems so basic, so elementary to me. It's such a fundamentally simple part of strategy that I don't get how a thinking, educated adult can miss it.

    When your enemy focuses on one thing and therefore leaves themselves vulnerable to others, what do you do? You take advantage of their stupidity.

    Think of it this way. Suppose a study shows that 85% of all home burglaries begin with the intruder entering through the front door. Do you therefore conclude that if you lock the front door, you will be safe? Do you decide to leave the back door unlocked? After all, the vast majority of burglars come through the front door, right?

    Now let's assume that you tell all of your neighbors about this (much like how government policy is communicated). Are you more or less vulnerable? You may make your front door quite secure, but when a burglar notices that you leave your back door unlocked, what is likely to happen?

    Who's talking about lineups and grandmothers? We're talking about police work. Should the police focus on Arabs at the expense of doing real work, and focusing their limited resources on real leads? There's only one reasonable answer to that question, and it has nothing to do with the emotions that people are displaying in this thread.

    My appologies. I thought we were talking about terrorist acts not every bomb that has ever gone off. I obviously don't know anything and you do. Sorry I have an opinion and didn't direct my observations at you. I just don't make it my priority to screen everyone's posts to find something to nit pick about. I'll leave this thread to the experts since I am obviously not one of them.

    It's not a nitpick. If the people protecting us thought as you do, we'd be much more vulnerable than we are. Don't you agree? If you don't, tell me why. Convince me. Game it out, and show me how I'm mistaken. I've given you examples, I've tried to give you a simple analogy, and I've tried to reason it out. You don't need to sulk.

    I was not sulking. I wasn't talking about ALL police work. I was only referring to work that has to do with protecting us from terrorism. Just like I think policeman have more important things to do than to look for people not wearing a seatbelt. If someone is dumb enough not to wear one that is their problem IMO. There are obviously other people out there including blacks and whites that are scum that need to be gone after. The original post was pointing out acts of terror I thought (?), not your everyday serial killer or child molester (two kinds of people looking for the HELL express). If you ask me, cops are underpaid and have too much to do. Hope this clarifies what I was trying to talk about.
