any organized jihadist group that is intent on causing death and destruction in our country is not going to be floating across the strait of juan de fuca waiting for a very expensive boat to come along and pick them up. nopers, they will be flying first class on saudi air. all the 'stuff' they need to create havoc is located right here in easy grasp. all of this hoopla regading 'deterents' is just total bunk. our boarders are so broad and porous, anyone coming from any location, can easily cross over undetected, thats life.
the one and only deterent that will work is peace in this world, understanding other cultures and religions, and displaying tolerance for differing points of view. of course none of that is going ot happen so we continue to spend trillions of dollars on 'show'.
