terrorist targets

Something just occurred to me on the drive into work this morning: the terrorists must be watching the New Orleans debacle with some interest. I wonder if they are even now doing research on other damns and levees that could be destroyed to wipe out entire cities. In bang-for-the-buck terrorist dollars, damns and levees have to be pretty attractive. I wonder if anyone in the Federal government is taking counter-measures.

It also occurs to me that an attack on the Netherlands might start to seem attractive at this point. The Dutch have to be extremely vulnerable to this kind of terrorism. The purpose of the terrorists, after all, is not to attack their actual enemies, but to create terror. Killing a few thousand Dutch would do that just fine.
