    Seriously how long do you think a terrorist could stay alive these days if he busted out with a box cutter or a plane and tried anything?

    That's a good point. Now that we know what their plans are, they would get a harsh beat down...and everyone on the plane would enjoy it...

    frankly, I don't know how they succeeded in the first place. I know not everyone has martial training and don't necessarily know how to disarm someone with a small sharp weapon, but, well, I don't.

    But yeah, no way will sharp objects be an issue again for a hijacking.

    The thing is that no one would have realised that the intention was to crash the plane. Previously all hijackings had let to a ground standoff. Therefore you'd wait until you landed before tackling them, or until it was truly necessary, trying something in mid-air would have seemed risky.

    I suck as a martial artist and I could've done it. There has to be at least a million* americans that can kick my ass. You'd think that some of them would've been on the planes.

    * none of them study TKD ;)

    Here in NZ we relaxed our rules back to pre 9/11 levels some time ago. I can happily file my nails on the plane.
