obviously ISIS are a danger, but us homegrown terrorists are a bigger threat to us americans right now. Geographially speaking.

 

Did you read about China's plan for a high speed train from Berlin to Beijing? Slight caveat: routing right through Afghanistan. Green laugh

All things considered, China's plan has merit.  If ISIS, al Queda, or the Taliban mess with the U.S.A., we'd form Congressional committees to discuss options.  But if they messed with China?  Somehow, I don't think of China as a country that would adhere to the Marquess of Queensberry rules (grin).  And if China decided to take direct action against terrorists, who would stop them (or want to stop them)?

    Hehehe.  Assuming I could get over my ISIS paranoia, this would be my "dream trip" on the Orient Express.

    That would be quite the excursion but going into Turkey........I have my druthers.

    Isis paranoia, exactly what THEY want for Americans if they can't kill us.

      Yup.  If I really had a death wish, I'd fly to Israel and wear a trenchcoat into the Palestinian territory.  Once beyond the border gate, I'd remove the trenchcoat to reveal a tee-shirt with a big blue Star of David on one side and the words "ZIONISM FOREVER" on the other side ... walking down the main street singing "Hava Nagila" (grin).  Any bets on how long I'd last, hehehe (he asked, setting his pocket egg-timer)?

        Israel is another place I would have loved to visit.  No, no bets, I think we both know the ending on that one.

          Oh, well, the dream is over (for now) unless you happen to be one of the three lucky winners.  Three people split the Powerball jackpot - one in California, one in Tennessee, and one in Florida.
