When, not If

It will happen here. This was effective. Too effective. The next one will be here, and it will be even more effective. The people who plan this sort of thing will use better explosives with a better system to detonate it when the assault begins.

Do you know why they picked a school? Body mass. They knew that any amount of gas like the Russians used in the Moscow Theater episode that would put down the terrorists would be a deadly dose for the children.

I don’t know what the lessons are here. I know a couple of specific things, like opening up the design of the schools so there is no where for terrorists to hide on the inside where snipers cannot get to them, but other than that, we have no defense. Hit them as soon as they do it. Don’t wait 54 hours — don’t wait 54 minutes. Have the local SWAT hit them within 20 minutes. You cannot give them time to set up the next time, or they will kill every. Single. Hostage.

It isn’t a matter of “what if they do this to us?” It is a matter of “when are they going to do this to us?” Hit them now, before they have a chance. And for those of you who think that “Osama == War on Terror”, I’m sure Osama had absolutely nothing to do with this, and Al Queda has a lot to do with this.

    On Russia

    My thoughts and prayers to the Russians who have endured a terrifying few weeks including plane crashes, bombings, and the recent school massacre. 200 dead and many were children. It truly shows how sickening these terrorists are.

    Remember that …

    No mercy

    People who murder 155 children deserve none.

    I don’t want to hear any crap about these people being oppressed.

    No Hollywood bullshit comparing them to the Founding Fathers.

    No “It is horrible, but…”s.

    They. Kill. Children.

    On pu…

    I’m glad you are only partly right. And, I can’t help but point out that saying Osama had nothing to do with it but Al Qaeda did is much like saying that Rumsfeld, Powell, or Bush had nothing to do with Abu Graihb, but the U.S. did.

    Al Qaeda does have leadership, and through negligence or intention, Al Qaeda’s leadership is responsible for the attack against the Russian school.
