A statement in this thread actually got me thinking:
I’d like to extract what I think is an interesting discussion from this:
Obviously, many of our most important cities are coastal, where it IS possible, and some say easy, to import the kind of terrorism the quote talks about. So what I’d like to ask, especially of those who actually LIVE in those cities, is how do you feel about the possibilities mentioned in the quote? Is it as inevitable as the poster seems to think? Are YOU ready to die? Should we, as a nation, slowly start to move more of our financial infrastructure and such inland to guard against such things (to diversify, as it were)? And considering the massive volume of stuff that comes into ports in California and New York every day, is just making contingency plans towards this ‘inevitable’ occurrance the best we can do?
