The price of freedom

4 May

We don’t mean to get your day started on a bad note, but –

Terrorism experts say a retaliation attack for Osama bin Laden’s death is inevitable.

We’ve touched on this before – terrorists are expected to aim for the most vulnerable soft targets like shopping malls or places where people gather.

They are places jam-packed with people — pedestrian malls, shopping centers and stadiums.

It takes less planning on their part.
A single suicide bomber can do tremendous damage.

One friend of ours – a counter terrorism expert – says terrorists seeking revenge for Osama bin Laden’s death will turn to attacks less dramatic than the destruction on September 11th.

He expects their focus to soft targets like hotels, places of worship and mass transit hubs.

“It’s easier and less complicated to carry out. What they’re going to achieve if they’re successful is to kill as many people as possible.”

More importantly, if they target places like shopping malls, people would be afraid to go.
America’s economy takes a nose dive.
That’s what they want.

Our future could look like parts of Europe with security check points at entrances to places we visit.

Can you imagine trying to provide security at Ala Moana Center?
You can’t.
It’s simply not designed for that.

The reason they’re called ‘soft targets’ is because they are easily accessible to anyone.

It’s freedom, coming with an increasingly heavy price.
