The Scenarios are planning tools and are representative of the range of potential terrorist attacks and natural disasters and the related impacts that face our nation.

    An exercise was already performed in Boston days ago for the subway system. It's also my understanding that National Guard troops are receiving focused training on civil unrest, as told to me by a relative. I think D.C. is well aware of the potential for violence by American citizens. I think they fully expect it.

    Bane, so do I, but I think it's basis will be the economy. It does not look good and as long as the government keeps artificially propping it up, this just delays the inevitable.
