The only way we'll ever have any real airline security...

"If someone tries to hijack the plane, he has to know that within a minute... a second... he'll be dead".

THAT is security. Everything else is theater. I've been saying it for 15 years. I'll probably be saying it 15 years from now after another half dozen bombings and hijackings on U.S. flag flights.

Security is a man with a gun asking you questions, checking your answers and your records, and deciding whether you get on the plane; followed by a man with a gun on the plane waiting to kill you if you try and hurt someone. That's it. Everything else is theater.
