I dont think we have too much to worry about with these guys.

When you consider they havent got enough intelegence to blow a car up in London or simply drive a Jeep into an airport terminal in Glasgow without setting themselves on fire I think the US will survive.

God knows how they managed 9/11

That one is false, also. Here is the Snopes report.

You really should stop believing all the email junk that gets circulated. Life is hard enough without worrying about things that aren't true.
Good info !

Oppressive regimes have always generated extremists....especially within the Islamic regions.
It's my opinion that Islam doesn't require oppressive regimes to generate extremists. In fact, I've yet to hear the voice of "moderate" Islam.

you haven't heard it because it doesn't exist, it is a creation of some spin doctor.
if you are reverent you are an extremist, their religion has no tolerance for anything less than total commitment

Let's not forget that Iraq never gets a day off from American terrorism. Unlike the Islamic variety the American brand DOES have WMDs including nuclear (DU) and uses them daily with a horrific tole on civilians.

I am not going to say they are nothing to worry about but why didn't the bombs work? That is hard to believe. Anybody can build a bomb triggered by a cell phone, they do it everyday with the roadside bombs. These guys must have been real idiots. The only thing I can think of is, someone on the inside is a spy who doesn't want to expose themselves and made sure the bombs didn't work in case the plot got that far. For both bombs to not work, it makes no sense.
