Terrorist attack or Nebraska…Terrorist attack or Nebraska…Terrorist attack or Nebraska…Well, how bad of a terrorist attack?
Bush has his Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska to run to. Cheney has his “undisclosed location” which happens to be a Hooters out on Lee Highway in Fairfax. But what about the rest of us? Where is a safe place for common Americans just like you and me, with the threat of additional terrorism hanging over our heads?
The U>S> State Department has some advice:
This Worldwide Caution supersedes the Worldwide Caution dated November 6. It is being issued to alert U.S. citizens to the need to remain vigilant and to remind them of the continuing threat of terrorist actions that may target civilians. This Worldwide Caution expires on May 20, 2003
Feeling better? How about this?:
On November 14, 2002, the State of Virginia executed Mir Ahmad Kasi, a Pakistani national, who was convicted in 1997 of the 1993 murders of two CIA employees. The potential exists for retaliatory acts against U.S. or other foreign interests in response to the execution.
Attacks on places of worship and schools, and the murders of private American citizens and other westerners, demonstrate that as security is increased at official U.S. facilities, terrorists and their sympathizers will seek softer targets. These may include facilities where Americans or possibly other foreigners are generally known to congregate or visit, such as residential areas, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, schools, hotels, outdoor recreation events or resorts and beaches. Americans should increase their security awareness when they are at such locations, avoid them, or switch to other locations where Americans in large numbers generally do not congregate. There is a possibility that American citizens may be targeted for kidnapping or assassination.
So. Since security is being beefed up at government offices and military bases, the terrorists will now be coming after…us. Nice to know that my ass can get blown up while President Gameboy is sitting in a bunker in Nebraska playing Quake Arena.
Remember when Bill Clinton was President and all we had to worry about were sloppy blow jobs?
