Optional Security Checks

What are Americans thinking when they say that airport security checks should be optional? If they were, what self-respecting terrorist would submit to one? What are they thinking when they insist children and grandmothers should be exempt from security checks? Terrorists would just use children and grandmothers as their explosive mules, perhaps unawares. A terrorist could quite easily sacrifice his own child or grandmother. Americans have killed millions of Muslims. They are hoping to stop the slaughter or seek revenge. What are a few more deaths? Further, terrorists could set off explosions in checked baggage, either with a timer or an electronic signal, bypassing the body scans and pat-downs. They need not even board, just place the bombs in cargo.
