    So if they don't tell you then they should have done more, but if they do tell you then they're crying wolf? Sounds fair. :roll2:

    Have to wonder how credible the threat warning is if they aren't going to change the cryptic color coded threat index. I love how the color index was supposed to give some sort of simple representation of the threat level, yet every time they make a change, they have to explain what the hell that color means.

    Yeah, this is obvious bullshit. I mean, really, what the government should do is just open the borders and encourage back-pack wearing foreigners to visit our national landmarks.

    This might be a joke to some of you, but personally I would rather hear someone yelling "FOUR" throughout my whole round than get bonked on the head once.

    Tibs.... Way to be a dick.

    1. Low Condition (Green). This condition is declared when there is a low risk of terrorist attacks. Federal departments and agencies should consider the following general measures in addition to the agency-specific Protective Measures they develop and implement:


    Refining and exercising as appropriate preplanned Protective Measures;
    Ensuring personnel receive proper training on the Homeland Security Advisory System and specific preplanned department or agency Protective Measures; and
    Institutionalizing a process to assure that all facilities and regulated sectors are regularly assessed for vulnerabilities to terrorist attacks, and all reasonable measures are taken to mitigate these vulnerabilities.



    2. Guarded Condition (Blue). This condition is declared when there is a general risk of terrorist attacks. In addition to the Protective Measures taken in the previous Threat Condition, Federal departments and agencies should consider the following general measures in addition to the agency-specific Protective Measures that they will develop and implement:


    Checking communications with designated emergency response or command locations;
    Reviewing and updating emergency response procedures; and
    Providing the public with any information that would strengthen its ability to act appropriately.



    3. Elevated Condition (Yellow). An Elevated Condition is declared when there is a significant risk of terrorist attacks. In addition to the Protective Measures taken in the previous Threat Conditions, Federal departments and agencies should consider the following general measures in addition to the Protective Measures that they will develop and implement:


    Increasing surveillance of critical locations;
    Coordinating emergency plans as appropriate with nearby jurisdictions;
    Assessing whether the precise characteristics of the threat require the further refinement of preplanned Protective Measures; and
    Implementing, as appropriate, contingency and emergency response plans.



    4. High Condition (Orange). A High Condition is declared when there is a high risk of terrorist attacks. In addition to the Protective Measures taken in the previous Threat Conditions, Federal departments and agencies should consider the following general measures in addition to the agency-specific Protective Measures that they will develop and implement:


    Coordinating necessary security efforts with Federal, State, and local law enforcement agencies or any National Guard or other appropriate armed forces organizations;
    Taking additional precautions at public events and possibly considering alternative venues or even cancellation;
    Preparing to execute contingency procedures, such as moving to an alternate site or dispersing their workforce; and
    Restricting threatened facility access to essential personnel only.



    5. Severe Condition (Red). A Severe Condition reflects a severe risk of terrorist attacks. Under most circumstances, the Protective Measures for a Severe Condition are not intended to be sustained for substantial periods of time. In addition to the Protective Measures in the previous Threat Conditions, Federal departments and agencies also should consider the following general measures in addition to the agency-specific Protective Measures that they will develop and implement:


    Increasing or redirecting personnel to address critical emergency needs;
    Assigning emergency response personnel and pre-positioning and mobilizing specially trained teams or resources;
    Monitoring, redirecting, or constraining transportation systems; and
    Closing public and government facilities.

    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    I agree that I'd rather hear about it than not. But I'll tell you what- if they know this much, they had damn-well better find these bastards and prevent something. We should be raiding, searching, arresting and deporting.

    The terror alert system doesn't mean anything. Nice idea, but I don't think it really makes us any more alert.

    Ordinarily I wouldn't think much of this for me personally as "the 'boro" is pretty far down prospective terrorists lists I'm sure, but it so happens I'll be flying across the country on July 4th with my entire family. I must admit... I'll be a bit nervous.

    Deportation is for Mexicans picking cabbage, if they catch these guys, there should be a trial, a conviction, and an execution. Period.

    Personally, I thnik this is nothing more than "cya" for the government so that if something does happen, they can say they said so beforehand. I mean, we get a "something could be happening at a significant event in a populated area" every year at this time, with no further information ever divulged, and no way to prepare or protect ourselves.

    Funny sheot. I agree 100%!

    My wife however has freaked out from the alert and a comment that the terrorists are living quietly amongst us as families waiting to attack. Now she has gone to the extreme and told my 7 year old daughter that she could not have a summer sleepover with her friends which was to be at the home of her Islamic friend from school. Its not that I think it extreme and that I wouldn't do the same, but the only thing that bothers me is the whinning and crying of my daughter about the edict that I now have to endure.
