Try Your Hand At Terrorism

Got a wonderful terrorist plot seething in the back of your evil mind? Let Bruce Schneier know!

“It is in this spirit I announce the (possibly First) Movie-Plot Threat Contest. Entrants are invited to submit the most unlikely, yet still plausible, terrorist attack scenarios they can come up with.

Your goal: cause terror. Make the American people notice. Inflict lasting damage on the U.S. economy. Change the political landscape, or the culture. The more grandiose the goal, the better.

Assume an attacker profile on the order of 9/11: 20 to 30 unskilled people, and about $500,000 with which to buy skills, equipment, etc.”

Note: no plots from Robert Ludlum books. šŸ™‚

  1. donated small payload nuclear device. small ship off either coast. scud launch toward kansas. EMP- no functional electronics – USA under marshall law, down 6mo to 6yrs.

    With small enough ships, yeah 20 to 30 unskilled people might be doable. But a SCUD launch + nuclear device for under $500,000? You gotta buy the ships, too. Not sure (then again, I don’t know the market value for all of the equipment) you’ll be able to fit that in the budget…
