    get some kind of foldable mini gas mask that you can slip out of your wallet
    take martial arts
    keep pepper spray
    get your vaccinations
    keep some anti-radiation tablets

    The majority of terrorist attacks occur against concentrations of people. Like malls, shopping centers, sporting events - the twin towers. I'd simply avoid concentrations of people. NCB threats are pretty easy to thwart, remembering that masks are only good for a finite amount of time - again, getting away from where the threat lies is key. Remember that there is a VERY high probability of a multi-prong attack, like with bombings - the initial blast often has a backup device awaiting the arrival of emergency personnel, who are then attacked in turn. So, again, RUN AWAY!!! It doesn't take much distance.

    I don't think thwarting terrorists will be sufficient, I think we need to figure out how to put the hurt on them

    well.....unlike the end-of-times apocalyptic zombie infestation it is much....much more difficult to spot a terrorist...let alone get in the way of their nefarious plans.....

    as others have mentioned - the best way is to avoid being attacked....low population areas/shelters/etc.....

    and therein lies the rub......how on earth can one avoid something they don't see coming?

    we need someone to develop a special type of sunglasses that will allow us to view the inner workings of terrorists....kinda like on the flick *They Live*......although that is silly.....

    or, we work on educating and building the economies of the countries whose populations tend to hate americans.....political, socio and charitable.....that is not *surviving* an attack...that is preventing an attack....or we might find ourselves huddled underground rationing tic-tacs and relying on the early warning perimeter defenses of Guinea Pigs.....just my .02 :D

    If they start blowing up school buses and malls in the U.S., the passive civilians won't remain passive....

    davidbyrne, i'm not sure for sure depends on what they already have that we don't know about. something more powerful then we've seen probably.

    Untie our troops' hands and let them handle business!!!

    We need to quit trying to fight a conventional war against an unconventional enemy.

    Threaten us? OK, you die. Threaten our allies or even society? OK, you die.

    End it BEFORE it starts! We need to quit sitting back and react to incidents, rather be proactive and address threats before anyone is hurt.

    Also... with the thoughts of the Global Markets' roller coaster of last week, just remember what Osama Bin Laden said not too long ago about if they really want to bring us down, do it with our economy.
