Of course he would but if the barriers had been there they wouldn't have killed these 8 people. Not sure what your deal is with the rolling eyes.

Doesn't work for me. Not at all.

Take a moment and recollect all of the different manners these assholes have carried out attacks and killed people.

After doing that, you still think they won't simply do something else? Really?

No, he would have used something else, or done something else. Is that so difficult to comprehend? No wonder folks are rolling their eyes!

Let's see, there's been box cutters, knives, hatchets, swords, bombs, trucks, guns.........

But, barriers would have stopped this guy, huh?

Are you serious, or just yanking people's chains? No one can be that naive.

You are missing my point entirely, which doesn't surprise me. I am not saying that cement barriers would prevent all terror attacks. That is stupid. I am saying that the cement barriers, which NYC had the money to implement but for some odd reason felt that protecting a walking and bike path in the shadow of Freedom Tower was not necessary, would have prevented these 8 people from dying. Period.

Speaking of naive, you advocate the "complete extermination of the terrorists". That is your solution? How do we do that? Right after we solve racism and poverty? Come on, we need some immediate solutions to help stop more of these incidents.

Okay, so maybe not these particular 8 people....but others world have died. If the terrorist was hell bent on killing people he would have found another way/method.

What Sogno said.
Again, missing my point of this particular attack, which could have been prevented if NYC had implemented these barriers a long time ago. They had the money and knew that vehicles going into pedestrian only areas was a huge security issue (as evidenced by their use in Times Square and other high profile areas of Manhattan) and had implemented them throughout parts of the city. For some reason they didn't think that a pedestrian area in the shadow of Freedom Tower was a potential security risk. Would that have prevented a terrorist from finding another way to kill and hurt people? No. I never even argued that. It would have prevented this tragedy. Period.

No, you are missing the point. Completely. Your Monday Morning Quarterbacking doesn't solve a damned thing. It's obvious there's nothing anyone can say to help you. And, unfortunately, you're not alone. Sad.

I am the one that needs the help? You can't even understand the point of my argument. Listen, enjoy your weekend and good luck with that exterminating the terrorists idea of yours. I am all for it.

What preventative measures should be put in place NOW to prevent the next terror attack that will kill a group of people?

You tell us how we prevent another New York, Las Vegas or Walmart mass killing.

I didn’t ask you Bruce, I’m asking the person that doesn’t understand what terrorism is. If you’d like to include yourself in that group, then answer my question.

Sogno is wrong on almost every thread he posts on. I would not give him the courtesy of a reply.

I don’t claim to have the answers, but it seems like you think you do.

I think BC in quite an intelligent and reasonable thinker.
