Typical out of date, useless, regurgitated crap even for '74.

Today I'm more worried about some rag-head blowing my ass up while I'm waiting in like to get through the TSA checkpoint chokepoint. Can you spell S.O.F.T. T.A.R.G.E.T?

Pshaw, not me.
I'm much more worried about an underpaid, over stressed, under trained, overworked TSA agent going postal on the job.

Odds are, Your more likely to be hit by lighting, and almost dead certain more likely to be hit by a car than attacked (let alone killed) by a terrorist.

However, you are about three times more likely to be killed by a terrorist than shot and killed by a dog swimming with a gun in its mouth, so fell free to panic if you absolutely must.

But you're 100% sure of getting the privilege of paying about $10 per flight in support of the TSA.

This will be good to know when we vacation in Syria later this summer. Thanks for the PSA.
Next year we're going to North Korea.
Our travel agent has really been able to find us some great vacations lately. Dirt cheap.

Expat, it's from MCMLIV, not MCMLXXIV.

Where'd they get those helmets for the prison guards?

Anyway, unless you were on the Bataan death march or otherwise taken by the Japanese Imperial Army, you were probably better off not trying to escape. Take the case of the Great Escape: 76 airmen escaped and 73 were recaptured, of whom 50 were executed. Not very good odds.

ISIS on the other hand...

@GES: Well, at the 3sec mark it shows the year as MCMLXXIII so what's the MCMLIV doing hanging all the way on the credits? Was this some kind of gubment subterfuge to send false info to the enemy in hopes of catching the spy in our midst? I wonder.
