Northwest Florida wary of risks
Law enforcement officials acknowledge that Northwest Florida probably is not high on any terrorist's hit list. .."It looks like it's pretty much tapped out in that area," said Senior Airman Stephen Hudson, a public affairs specialist in the National Guard's St. Augustine office. "We grabbed just about everything (National Guard Units)in the Panhandle."

I live in northwest Florida  The above article Northwest Florida wary of risks scares me. It scares me that local law enforcement officials think this area is not at high risk for terrorism.

These military bases are all within 30 miles of where I live.

  1. Naval Air Station  (Cradle of Naval Aviation)

  2. Hurlburt Field - Air Force Special Operations

  3. Eglin Air Force Base - one of the world's largest Air Force Bases where the MOAB was detonated

And the law enforcement here don't think we are at risk?

My military neighbors were told this is a high risk area. 

I believe my neighbors. I wish the local cops did.

I feel better when I hear our military jets overhead.

VIEWER EMAIL from a Navy Veteran:

Subject: Pretext

As the idiot American rallies around the George W. Hitler aka President of the U.S., I hope they keep in mind that as we bomb the crap out of Iraq..... where's the Iraq weapons of mass destruction?

Yeah -- and why hasn't Saddam used them.  Maybe he is saving them for future use?
As we thrust our troops through the many kilometers of Iraq, are we confiscating and destroying these weapons of mass destruction?

Fox News will provide us with exclusive video at 5 narrated by Rita Cosby.
Keep in mind, the pretext to this war was to rid Iraq of these alleged weapons. Ousting a President of a foreign country was based on the alleged knowledge this man was manufacturing these weapons.
If no weapons are found after our invasion, do we apologize, resurrect the civilians from their graves and reinstate the President of Iraq?
If the USA were to be invaded, do you think we would use weapons of mass destruction to destroy our enemy as we did in the past with Japan?
When is Iraq going to bring out the alleged big guns the U.S. and Britain say they have? Will it be 2 days into this illegal war; or, perhaps a month into it?
I hope when this is all over, and if our government cannot prove evidence that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, that the American people will gladly hand over their President, George W. Hitler to the United Nations for war crimes. These crimes to include our military men and women who blindly go into battle because our government deprives them of access to the media.

The United Nations would have to be the ones to charge Bush with war crimes -- Ashcroft sure won't.
