If I were a terrorist

If I were a terrorist, I wouldn't strike when everyone was expecting it.

I would wait until everyone thought that the threat was over & the danger had passed. I would wait until everyone had let their guard down. I would wait until people were celebrating how smoothly everything had gone.

That's what I would do. What would you do?

Terrorists want publicity, more than anything else. Midnight 2000 I think would be the ideal time, when everyone is watching.

Every terrorist is different. Some want publicity and some don't. If they had the capability of really doing some serious damage with a small nuclear weapon, etc., thy would not want publicity. They would not want to identify themselves for fear of retaliation.
