    This is extremely dangerous....
    Not the threats themselves, but the way they keep issuing the warnings and fearful statements to the public. When an actual, real event occurs the pPeople will not be able to tell whether it's just another blow-hard neocon jackazz or an actual nuclear bomb about to go off in Manhattan or LA. Geologists in a hazard zone know about this "Chicken Little" principle, and use great caution before sending out the evacuation orders. It's called risk assessment and management.

    If there was a time that they didn't raise the threat level etc, and something did happen, we'd be treated to an endless (at least it would feel as though t'were endless) uproar. We'd have congressional hearings, "what did they know and when did they know it" and "how could they have been so sloppy", we'd have 24/7 press coverage of how the "Bush administration failed in it's duty to keep America safe".

    I don't disagree with your points about people becoming inured and immune but really...what else can they do?

    After The Attack And Thousands Die The Slobbering Bush Hating Liberals Will Go Down To Their Knees And Whail.

    "Why Didn't They Warn Us, They Knew, Why Didn't They Prevent It, They Knew"

    BUSH HAD 8 MONTHS CLINTON HAD 8 YEARS.

    As opposed to Obama, who says "vote for me or you're a racist" or Hillary who says "vote for me or you're a sexist?

    LOL.

    The Attorney General is doing just what the Bush Haters say Bush should have done, now if there is an attack he can say "see I told you"--:rocker:
