It can happen to us

On 15 Feb1942, in one of the greatest defeats in British military history, Britain’s supposedly impregnable Singapore fortress fell to the Japanese after a week-long siege. More than 60,000 British, Australian, and Indian troops became POW, joining 70,000 other allied soldiers who had been captured during Britain’s disastrous defense of the Malay peninsula. We Americans seem to think that Radical-Islamic terrorism simply can’t come here. America, like Singapore, is safe. No, the bad guy terrorists hate us, our borders are totally insecure, and we’ll be hit when they’re ready. Why would they not come here?
