A Platoon Of Six???... Even David Koresh Did Better Than That!

Topping the national headlines today, six individuals were arrested for plotting an alleged attack on Fort Dix, New Jersey. Although these people had stockpiled heavy armament and had also done an extensive amount of reconnaissance (according to media sources), I really think that the American public is so caught up in the post 9/11 media hype, their losing basic common sense and obvious rationality. Fort Dix ... full of soldiers ... soldiers trained to use weapons efficiently and effectively ... the same soldiers that are currently occupying Iraq and Afghanistan ... right, like these guys even stood a chance. "Please keep in mind, terror attacks are about terror. These attacks on military bases would have created terror nationwide," said U.S. Attorney Christopher Christie. Terror nationwide??? Come on, seriously ... maybe a slight overstatement? I have yet to see the bug beat the windshield.

At the risk of sounding insensitive, I've got to say that it's interesting to know that even the terrorists have incompetent hangers-on. Groupies? Wannabes?

Because, really, I think that's the case here. A couple of losers who wanted to be considered {threatening voice}the next wave of terrorism {/tv}.

Because we all know that Al Qaida's greatest are busy whacking their own rented home with paintballs and taking out the solar sidewalk lights with BB guns. Fearsome, huh?!

I'm sure Fort Dix is awash in fear.
