    they might just shoot you and dispose of your body and the bomb together.

    got lor. got time. if my memory dun fail me, the madrid bombs occured more than 2mths ago? to think of it now, if u wanna tok abt the 'fast and the furious', we shud have the storm troopers like more than a mth ago le.

    at the end of the day, its a matter of whether they wanna ask us or not. in this case, i think they can't be bothered to lar. its always the case lar, in singapore, the government's the boss lar. they say wat means must do wat lar. at the end of the day, do we really have a VOICE?

    yes, to kill as many as possible.

    Now, if you do, your mind is already been brainwashed and if you see an approaching guard, what with you do next? You will detonate whatever explosive you have on you... you don't think an expert to tell you this.
    unfortunately, true. until such time that the guards get better at identifying terrorists.

    you know, Tim made a good point...

    counter-terrorism will teach that terrorist will not put themselves at such big risk (travelling by MRT) to achieve so small of a success (bombing the train). but then again, they may just want to make a statement.

    Gentle reminder, this is a discussion about the security measues that have been put in place. This is NOT for anyone to start a politically slanted discussion.

    Consider this the last reminder.

    Thank you.

    in matters of defence or national security, i don't think there is going to be much (if any) public consultation, due to operational security.

    actually again this brought a point in mind:

    wby the stereotype that explosives are found/ hidden only in big bags? Liken to Mindef's checking of the car when entering camps, they check only certain areas like the boot and glove compartments...

    in the mind of the suicide bomber, killing more than one of the enemy is considered a success. that's why, e.g., palestinian suicide bombers keep on targeting israeli buses, even with increased counter-measures enforced by the israelis. they have even used young women bombers to try to slip through the security cordons.

    precisely my point I guess this counter-measure acts more as a confidence booster and psychological deterence rather than a strongarm prevention system

    If I'm the terrorist, all i have to do is blow myself up at 1 of the platforms at Cityhall or raffles place MRT station. Mass casualty, also disruption to train service. How long it takes? less than 30 secs if start at the ground level, & walk quickly during rush hour.

    let's hope the guards can spot that kind of behaviour...
