Terrorist Threat


But while I have your attention, something else happened Saturday night which proves the Iraq War to be a colossal and bloody (19,000 American casualties!) failure.

The Bush administration has used the terrorist threat not only as an excuse to continue the war but also as a means to keep easily spooked Americans in a state of perpetual incontinence.
And while I'm on the cowardly ooga-booga thread, Bush cult members have been crowing about how it's no coincidence that there hasn't been an Islamic terror attack on American soil since 9/11.

Question: how, then, did we manage almost 230 years without an Islamic terror attack on our soil BEFORE September the 11th? But we're supposed to believe that even though the 9/11 Commission gave the Bush's government an 'F' for prevention, Bush is still the man to keep us safe. And in unison, the Bush apologists reading this post rush to the comments section below -- ears emitting bursts of steam, and drool short-circuiting their keyboards -- to post, "Yeah, well, you're a moonbat lib bat moon!"

If he's the great protector everyone claims he is, why then has he invaded Iraq thus creating a chain reaction leading to the rule of an insurgent puppetmaster with ties to the Iranian government?
CORRECTION: I neglected to note the first attack on the World Trade Center in 1993. However, we weren't attacked for a span of eight years -- the entire Clinton administration. We went without an attack for eight years under a democratic president. Shock horror! Bottom line, Bush resisted the creation of Homeland Security (a Clinton administration idea) and he stonewalled the 9/11 Commission and continues to ignore its recommendations. And you feel safer under this guy?

Besides, according to Foreign Policy magazine, your odds of dying in a terrorist attack on American soil are 1 in 88,000. According to the same study, you're more likely to die from a fall off a ladder than you are from a terrorist attack.

A Live Science study concluded you're more likely to be struck by lightning (1 in 83,930) or legally executed (1 in 58,618). Your odds of committing suicide are 1 in 121. You're more likely to kill yourself than to be killed by a terrorist! Cancer is the second deadliest threat to you, yet Bush/Cheney has relaxed rules against spewing cancer-causing chemicals into your air and water.

So based on the odds, where the shit is the Global War on Ladders and Lightning?

But okay -- if you want to be so easily and hysterically frightened just because Bush and Cheney say so... enjoy! Just keep your fear to yourself and leave everyone else's civil liberties alone.


RIGHT ON! I AGREE! Oooga booga! ;)

thats nice and all, but when

thats nice and all, but when will the "liberal" media like Huff Post start to be honest about 9/11? until then i cant take them seriously.

granted, the liberal media

granted, the liberal media is obviously better than conservative/mainstream media, but they need to stop with the gatekeeping already.

Mike Malloy on nights on Air

Mike Malloy on nights on Air America Radio was a skeptic about the government's involvment in 911, but after looking at all the evidence he is a staunch believer and says so almost nightly on his program.

yes,ive read great things

yes,ive read great things about Malloy recently. i give him major props.but for the most part,the liberal media ignores 9/11 just like the righties do.i cant think of another "mainstream" liberal that questions 9/11 like Malloy does.

Repeat after me: Al-ki-da.

Repeat after me: Al-ki-da. Al-ki-da gonna git ya.

"Liberal" media,

"Liberal" media, "mainstream" media... back before almost all our media got super-concentrated down into only 5 or so companies, we used to have DIVERSE media. HMmm...
