[ RadSafe ] Concerns Could Reduce Radiation Sensor Deployment

No, that's not a good analogy, because there is a history of terrorist attacks culminating in the 
911 attack, but tigers have never attacked you or your neighbours, and you did not plant the 
palm trees in an effort to protect yourself from tigers.

It might be better to say that at one time there were widespread tiger attacks, and then after 
some counter action, the vast majority of tiger attacks are concentrated in one place where 
tiger killers lay in wait.  That's more in line with the actual situation.

Oh, that's quite funny, and absolutely true.

Also, in response to Howard, I have to say that the fact that there
have  not been other attacks in the U.S. is no proof that anything
we've done has  been effective.  I could as easily say that the palm
trees in my back yard  are effective tiger repellents, because I
haven't ever had a tiger in my back  yard.

SDI is  actually a pretty good analogy.  It works, but only if there
is  only one missile at a time and we know its coming and what its
trajectory  will be. Detecting nukes at the border would be effective
under  similar circumstances: If we know the terrorist is coming, when
he's coming  and where, it will be no problem to identify the nuke
he's  carrying.
