A new category where new concepts for attacks can be
developed. When you or the federal agencies read this
category you are better prepared for todays world. Attacks
have to be relatively inexpensive, low-tech, high impact and
could be suicidal. Hijacking a plane and flying it into a high
building would qualify although it requires flying lessons
and training. If it's already done, the idea is baked. High
impact means panic more than casualties. If it profoundly
shakes our confidence in things we trust in it fits this
category. Dedication, planning and time are the most
important resources and the world is the arena. For maximum
impact situate the attack in the USA with live media-coverage
rather than in any other country. It should scare the whole
Western world, a massacre in some African country doesn't
qualify, regardless of the number of casualties.

||[2002-01-28] m-f-d removed. Not a troll - just a bad idea.
Working out the way in which terrorists might strike so that we can provent them: good.
Discussing the above in a public forum so that they can get inspiration from out ideas: bad.
||Pfft. You could have at least implanted that outburst inside a more convincing idea. There is a 'product: weapon', you know.
||It is not meant as a troll. I wanted to post the idea of
putting Anthrax in newspapers by letting an employee
next to the printing press leak it from an automated box
scotched to the production line. But in which category
should I post this then? To have such a category would be
good to use the collective imagination of everyone
@halfbakery to come up with scenarios to take into
account. Just yesterday I read in the newspaper that
feds are brainstorming together with Hollywood
scriptwriters to improve their worst case scenarios. The
WTC attack shows that the imagination of the intelligence
service was not sufficient to think of something like this.
And no I haven't been away the last 6 weeks. I just can't
find a good place to post ideas for new attacks. You
might not need such a place and that's why you find the
proposal not convincing. That has nothing to do with
originality of the idea.
