    You know, lately I don't feel like flying anywhere ever again. What's the point, so we can sit next to creeps who have fun terrorizing innocent people trying to have fun by traveling to see their families, or have our privacy completely invaded before we even get on the plane, so the people at airport security can get "full-body" (ewwww!) x-rays of EVERYONE, even the ones like me who are just innocent teachers trying to live an honest and decent life?????? I mean, come on!! I think I would like to try to cash in my airline ticket, and use the money to just drive to see my sister. What does Delta think of THAT? xoxo

    The red areas of this map have long held a threat to US interest, from hijackers with demands, to those who flew planes into buildings. We have been held hostage, burned and dragged through the streets after a brutal death, we all know what "shock and awe" really is.

    Who wants to be the next victim of terrorist attack, terrorist who have not and will never go away, and who firmly believe that every person on the earth who does not convert to their radical Islamic faith should be put to death.

    Never again should be the program plan, the motto. Taking into account that threat levels change and evolve and eventually find a way in after prolonged planning that goes right into the core of national security. Not all bullets were dodged.
