U know who writes :

" Yeah, If you catch them. There would be so much chaos and confusion." in reference to my point that if Iran was bombed and Islamic sleeper cells in the US were activated - they would be caught.

Are you implying that US security agencies are incompetent and they would not be caught - despite being helped along by tens of millions of Americans on the look out for the slightest hint of saboteurs?

"....Since you are from Australia, I really wouldn't expect to you what going on in the United States.......That's like me telling you what would happen in your country and all I know is from t.v., radio, and newspapers. what you read, watch and hear isn't always reality. "

Well, media is pretty pervasive and the source of information about the world outside of our own suburbs and streets isn't it? If you live in say LA - how do you know what's going on in say, Boston - if it's not via the media ? And how would you know any more than I do - given that I have as much access through cable and satellite TV to US news sources - and the BBC, Novosti, Deutsche Velle etc etc ? Of course being outside of the USA gives me a different perspective - and there is nothing like local knowledge. But that's just the point - that millions of average Americans and their local knowledge would expose the interlopers bent on the destruction of your country.
