Remember 9/11 Prayfully, But America Cannot Be Complacent

While it is very important to remember the 5 year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks prayerfully, it is also more important for Americans not to become too complacent. It is hoped that the disrupted London plot to destroy up to 10 aircraft was the big Al Qaeda plot that was planned for this date. But with a recent flurry of new Al Qaeda videos, it is clear that this organization puts as much if not more interest on this date as well. Just this morning yet another video by the #2 in Al Qaeda, the radical Egyptian-born, Dr. Ayman al-Zawahri, offered up yet another threatening video.

Even if Al Qaeda cannot manage another major attack in the U.S. very soon, that does not mean that they are not planning new attacks. Terrorism is more active and increasing worldwide, as things are becoming more unsafe. And free-lance acts of terror such as the summer attack at Seattle Jewish Center or the San Francisco car attack on innocent citizens cannot be merely explained away as mere acts of mentally ill persons, but acts of radical Islamic rage. Such acts of lone persons are impossible for law enforcement to prevent in most cases and always remain as threats.

Al Qaeda now feels that their credibility is at stake among the Islamic radicals of the world, and this puts them in a dangerous position of attempting to launch something very soon to prove their relevance. This makes them very dangerous. And any American complacency could only help this dangerous organization to prove their deadly point sometime again in the future. Don't forget 9/11. But also look over your shoulder and be aware always.
