IEDs in the United States

I was visiting one of my favorite fellow bloggers, Texas Fred, this evening and came across an interesting post.

He writes about the Bush administration's concern for IEDs (improvised explosive devices) being used in the United States against American citizens. Click
here to read his post on the subject. He makes some very interesting points and raises some important questions.

His writing and the accompanying comments did make me think. I cannot count the number of times since 9-11 I have pulled into the parking lot of my school and wondered how vulnerable it was to terrorism or a hostile action such as occurred at Columbine High School in 1999.

I am always watching whenever I am out and around, looking for anything out of the ordinary. It is not that I am paranoid but I have always been aware of my surroundings. IEDs are impossible to detect in America and it is only a matter of time until a terrorist detonated one domestically. Many more will follow the initial occurrence. That is a fact.

If Bush and his staff have a plan to deal with them, the troops in in Iraq would currently be using it. The only way I see to deal with domestic IEDs is to watch your surroundings, your back and to do the same for your loved ones.

We could round up and deport anyone whom we consider a threat. It is unfortunate that the liberal Democrats would not stand for that. They would have the ACLU all over everyone.

Texas Fred: Thanks for the comment. Keep up the good work. There are many more of us out there than them. Together, we WILL make a difference.
