Kind of like pulling a gun on someone.......If you pull it you had better be willing to use it.

If they send a fighter up after an airliner and there truly is a terrorist on board do you think this administration would give orders to shoot it down?

I agree 100%. Anytime you have any type of scare when a jet full of fuel and passangers could possibly kill more people on the ground, its a big deal. Its all about damage control. I just wish our Harriers were called to take care of the problem.

I come from a base where this has happened.......OFTEN, and it is no small deal. I think it's one of the greatest things to be able to work with them especially when they go up within a moments notice. we went up 3 times? during the presidential innauguration(sp?)

Ok....
To me ,it seems like "closing the barn door after the horse has gotten out"

To me, this does not give me a warm fuzzy feeling that the TSA has done everything needed to keep the jihad folks out of the sky or for that
matter OUT of the airport,let alone out of the country.

I have flown internationally a few times,most recently to an allied country, that is also fighting a war on terror.
At Philippine Airports, the guards(both military and civilian) openly carry rifles and shotguns, they screen you (check your papers,frisk,and xray baggage ) upon entry into the airport AND again before you enter the terminal. They openly patrol throughout the airport and they are permitted to profile to their hearts content . Also, you cannot remove or access baggage without PROVING that its YOURS. There are also NO stations with a single guard.

Personally, I believe that, at a minimum ,all domestic international airports in this country should have national guard troops patrolling within the international terminals. Notice how I stress INTERNATIONAL terminals???

If I was sitting in a plane and looked out the window and saw that it was being escorted by fighter jets...I would be saying to myself:
"SOMEBODY SCREWED UP AGAIN, back at the AIRPORT"

I disagree. It is not our Military's job to be a police force. We are not trained that way. We are trained to solve the problem. If you want to do that you do it with some sort of Federal Police force (Marshall's) that are trained in a law enforcement role. Leave us in the Military to solve the worlds problems not the nations. Just my
