    I don't see you cowering in fear over this. These offenders have been walking amongst us long before everyone started fearing jihadists.

    Look at Brett Peter Cowan who had a long criminal history....

    Jill Meagher killer Adrian Bayley had a shocking criminal history.

    I know there are several others, here is a link to an article I found

    http://mobile.news.com.au/national/p...-1226928205136


    "Terrorists" only have power if you let them incite fear. I'm no more afraid that on the small chance I'm walking down the street I may become a jihadist victim than I am about becoming a sickened criminals victim ( which is almost at 0%).
    Thank you, this is what I'm trying to get at!

    It is about becoming aware of your surroundings at all times. Some random who pulls out machete will display strange behaviour beforehand

Because of 9/11 world governments are more vigilant than ever.

    I just think some perspective needs to be kept. The fact that that article can even be written shows that the government is well aware of what is happening.

    There was actually a horrible attack on a women in the Canary Islands a couple years ago, she was killed in the same type of attack that is being implied. Broad daylight, in a shop. The attacker wasn't a terrorist but a very mentally ill man.

    Exactly.

    And the USS Cole. And the Twin Tower bombings in the early 90's. A bomb in one of the garages.

    Gosh is having a bit of empathy for someone who is anxious about this really such a bad thing?

    If she posted about being anxious on planes would you all be jumping on her about it being implausible and irrational? All im saying is i understand.

    I'm just pointing out that if you are anxious and fearful then you need to be for many reasons

    1. No ones saying that you dont.

    2. Probably not the kindest thing to 'point out' to someone who worrys or may have anxiety.

    It's not about not having empathy, sorry if I'm coming off harsh.

    But perspective can go a long way in helping with anxiety. If somebody was posting about being scared of flying because of all these tragedies I think there would be heaps of responses about how accidents are rare, etc.

    DH flies over to OZ on Wednesday and I feel sick to my stomach about it and have to keep telling myself things to force me to keep it in perspective, that air tragedies are rare.
