A Question for All of Us to Consider...

If the United States suffers another major terrorist attack, say a suitcase nuke, where likely will the blame be placed, and by whom?

well, that's quite easy. From what I have seen already, I can say that Bush haters will still hate Bush and still blame Bush for everything- and I mean everything- that happens. There would be such comments as, "I thought republicans were supposed to be tough on security." The ironic thing is, that the people who would be griping about Bush's failure in that situation are most likely also the same people that gripe about hightened security measures that might just happen to be a little inconvenient to them.

The blame should rightly go towards the terrorists themselves. No brainer, in my opinion. However, rarely in the MSM have I seen them get truely blamed. It's almost as if they are considered to "not know any better" like some 2 year old.

But oh, I forgot that since Bush is basically the devil incarnate, it's always the administration's fault. I mean, how can it not be? He's the cause of every tornado, hurricane, NASCAR crash, violent video game, failed connection to the internet (that Algore created), and every time a child skins his knee. ugh He should be impeached.

Sarcasm is a wonderful thing.

Arbas/Muslims.

Although the 2 things are not the same.

If that did happen we would probably have enough fear and hate in the U.S. to invade another country that had nothing to do with it.

Would another attack against the U.S. not prove that the way we are fighting this war is not working?

Why did it take less that 3 years to capture and prosecute all the 1993 WTC attackers?

I wish we were really at war with Islamic Extremists that wanted to harm us. We are not. We say we are, but we are sadly not.

If we were we would have 100,000 troops on the ground in Afghanistan and Pakistan and would be actively pursuing those who attacked us. We would truly be dismantling the network of support for this type of terroism. We are not. And finally we would be trying to understand how our actions past and present appear to the masses that so readily support the hate targetted against the west.

None of this is going to happen until politicians, actually the people that elect them, realize that using fear to maintain their grip on power is very bad for society as a whole.
