Not That It Might Matter

Next Thursday is 9-11-2014.

Normally, it might not matter much.

But I sat and pondered through an article or two today.  The big airport area of Tripoli was taken over by Muslim extremists in the past week or two.....and around eleven aircraft....passenger planes....were part of the acquired assets taken.

You take those eleven, plus the still missing Malaysian jumbo jet lost out in the Pacific, and you can write a fairly dramatic and chaotic mess.....if suddenly twelve aircraft are noted on the Thursday morning of next week in the air and going somewhere with the intent of massive destruction on someone.

The Malaysian jet?  It has the legs to reach from the South Pacific to the coast of the US.  The Libyan eleven?  All had the range to reach into the heart of Europe or into Saudi Arabia, or into regions of Africa.

It shouldn't matter, and 9-11-2014 ought to pass on with no real issues.  But ISIS has come out this year, and for some reason.....there's this random thought that they might want to make a name for themselves.  So, one has to wonder about the capability of us hitting and taking down twelve passenger jets if required to.

Yeah, it shouldn't matter....but it does.
