Lillis place for rants and musing about life, universe and the whole rest. Mostly left, mostly sarcastic, sometimes in german, sometimes in Lilli-english.

As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

How long can a nation remain alarmed?
Today, Tom Ridge called the alert level orange at the Homeland Securiyt Alert System.
I have no idea, how long a nation like the United Stated could be hold on this alarmed level? And why do they do that? I mean, what would be won if the whole nation is in panic state? Why don't they just handle it and shut up instead of making such a fuss about it?
I don't think the chances for terrorist attacs are much higher now than they were the months before. They are high. Especially in the US and Great Britain, they are pretty high, but I don't feel so safe here in Germany, too because it has IMO nothing to do with what happens in Iraq, but more what's happening in Afghanistan and the rest of the world.
I'd bet the alert level will be highest when it comes to presidential elections.
