I'm just ruminating over why they're setting up surface-to-air missles around D.C. during this alert. Don't get me wrong...we're always asking for better measures when it comes to security against terrorists 'n' all. But hasn't their M.O. always been low-tech attacks? Their horrific deed over two years ago was carried out with box cutters, and our mindset back then was that a hijacking meant the flight was not going used as a missle. Now passengers will kick the snot out of anyone who tries to do that again, for certain.
I'm wondering what they're aiming for here. And if they're really looking out for the comparatively small stuff which is making a mess in Iraq and Saudi Arabia.
