I don't know what is going on, but it seems like "successful" terrorist attacks are starting to become the norm here in America over the last few years.

It's always been the norm. We just didn't always label it as terrorism.

I'm sure al Qaeda is studying this event closely to see how these two guys managed to do as much as they did.

both of these quoted for the truth. look back in our history and you will find many acts of terror through the years. this is nothing new in this country. and as i have always said, if someone wants to kill a bunch of people, they are going to be hard to stop especially if they are willing to die to attain their goals.

To me it seems the frequency and effectiveness of them are increasing.

Yea, right.

These clowns were amateurs. Al Qaida has nothing to learn from these guys. They can pull off a large scale terror attack anytime they want to.

And again, terrorism isn't new to this country. Tossing a bomb in a church is the same thing.

Hardly a "norm." Such a description is more than an exaggeration.
