    Rushmore
    The nation’s shrine of democracy is preparing for the worst. Tuesday, emergency management officials announced plans for a massive terrorist attack exercise at Mt. Rushmore this Saturday. Organizers say the event will span many agencies, and leave little to chance. Pennington County Emergency Management Official Park Owen says, "This is a big deal. This is a major, annual, full-scale response exercise where we actually move apparatus and people. The helicopters will be flying." Area hospitals will also take part, by treating people with simulated injuries, and police will look for suspects in the fake attack. The simulation will include more than 100 victims and 200 responders from federal and state agencies.

    [/ QUOTE ] I really don't think Mt. Rushmore would be high on Osama's list. What do you think ??? I was half tempted to go up there with a plastic block with the word "explosive" writen on it with majic marker to see if they could find my plastic explosive. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Y'all actually think if a bunch of gun-toting cops see some long hair weirdo holding a gray block of "something" screaming "Allah Akbar" that the yahoo in question would actually see jail bars? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I believe they would take that QUITE seriously and Paul would be locked up... I agree with Paul that this would not be high up on Osama's list as there would be few human casualties. He's into blood, not rocks...

    [/ QUOTE ] Was nothing more than me making a joke. I do think a terrorist drill at Mt. Rushmore is a waste of tax payers money. Terrorist would go after big citys like NYC, Chicago, LA, ... ect. I doubt very much that they'd attack Mt. Rushmore out in the hills. It's amazing how meny people around here think they will though. Shall we say that they're not the brightest crayons in the box. Anyways, the drill has been canceled till sept. becouse of the Keystone fire.

    well, there is a certain logic in attacking small towns as well.... people in boonies-ville america think they are safe because the terrorists will only attack "big citys like NYC, Chicago, LA, ... ect"... if they carried out a strike against a small town they could spread fear across the entire country as opposed to just the top 5 largest population centers.

    You don't know how terrorists think. Their main objective is to strike terror, hence the name...........

    What do you think would happen to tourism if a group decided to hit Mt. Rushmore?

    Y'all heard the reports of these clowns running around places like Florida and Minnesota looking to take flight lessons. You didn't hear about the incidents where they were out in BF Oklahoma trying to get Mr. Small Town spray pilot to give them flight lessons or trying to take a tour of a feedlot. This all happened before 9-11.
