Sharpening our wits on the grindstone of Life

I don't know about you, but I don't feel safer...

Although these bombings are happening half a world away, they're really aimed at us. They're designed to send a message.

You're not safe, no matter where you are.

After 9/11, we knew who our enemy was. It was Osama bin Laden, and he was hiding in the hills of Afghanistan. And so we went after him, bombing that which has already been bombed numerous times since the 70s when the Taliban was our friend.

Although we failed to eradicate our enemy (bin Laden has still not been caught), Bush chose to extend our War on Terror to Iraq, fabricating evidence to make it sound like they deserved it,
in order to justify invading and occupying that country.

All to make ourselves safer. Did it work?

Security systems are in place all over our country and all over the world. Yet still, suicide bombers are able to wreak their havoc on the public.

Most of these guys would have been productive members of society had the U.S. not just put paid to Al Qaida and moved on to the economic conquest of the rest of the world.

But no, we had to declare war on all of Islam, thus enabling the self-fulfilling prophesy of Islamic Jihad and the recriutment of myriad jihadists, with no futures beyond death and paradise among virgins (which, based on mathematical probabilies could never happen,
but that's beside the point.)

So do you feel more secure since we declared war on Iraq?

I don't.
Because now instead of just the Republican Guard we're dealing with radical suicidal idealists.
I don't feel safer. Do you?
