rincewind Posted June 23, 2006 Share Posted June 23, 2006 Interesting observation (the two Trade Center and the Oklahoma attacks notwithstanding). They could do a lot less and have the same sort of impact. Admittedly, a smaller attack (blowing up a Starbucks) is going to have a much lower impact in the immediate area, but across the country it's going to create ample amounts of disruptive fear. There was a story about a year or two ago that terrorists were targeting a small town in Virginia. The point of the attack would have been to show that they can struck anytime, anywhere - and that they are not necessarily interested in 'big' strikes. They want us to be afraid and just such an attack would surely do that. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
