that this is only the beginning. I entirely suspected, after the attack, for cases of Anthrax to start breaking out a few days later. I see no way out of this situation. As technology increases, all it takes is one fanatic with enough intelligence, and thousands of civilians lie dead.

What frightens me most about these people isn't the hiding out, or the sneak attacks, or even the religious fanatacism, so much as it is their deliberate singling-out of civilians. For example, if the terrorists had piloted empty planes into ONLY the Pentagon, or other military locations, I would have the prescence of mind to say, "Okay. They at least have the honor to go after our military and intelligence forces, and seeing as they have no military or economic might behind them, they're doing the best with what they've got." But to single out innocents, not even as collateral damage, deeply frightens me in the way no foreign aggressor ever could.
