Well, wouldn't vote for someone who has no ability to convincingly hold a senatorial position and would promptly pee their pants in these upcoming years, much less run the country. Then again, it's just a ' bumpersticker ', right? Anyhoo, this isn't a political question. This has more to do with this thread, certainly, than whether hotel rooms in Puerto Rico have kitchenettes! This face is for the moderators

In NYC, random bag checks are supposed to foil a terrorist plot.

I am confident NYC is one of the most vulnerable cities to terrorism, especially due to it's status.

When it comes, it will come. There is no stopping it.

I think if you rank cities by highest population or high population concentrated in downtowns, you would get the "right list."

SF, Seattle, LA, SD, NY, Chicago, Denver, Detroit, Huston/Dallas/Austin, Boston, Etc., etc., etc.

If someone took out the Lake Travis dam all of Austin would be underwater.

Actually one would assume that our largest military base (Fort Hood) is pretty vulnerable. You should have seen what it was like there on "that day". The entire area got a complete makeover due to security reasons. Not to mention a turning point in the way of life.

Cleveland? Detroit?

Sorry kids, NYC's on the top of this list! Have a good time!
... Chicago isn't far behind.

New York without a doubt. In addition to being America's most famous, iconic and representative city abroad (automatic target), you have a city of 8 million people (many more during the workdays) on an island (bridges and tunnels), who use public transit like no other (little if any security in the nation's train/subway stations). I don't think there's any other city in America where there is as great of an opportunity to cause chaos and destruction for as many people as possible with one fell swoop (the objective of terrorists). The city is incredibly vulnerable, as is every city in the U.S.

I wouldn't say it's as vulnerable per se, but Las Vegas is a huge target for terrorists that rarely gets mentioned.
