Whenever a discussion about National Security happens between a right-winger and a left-winger, the right-winger always says something like this: Bush is doing an excellent job. We haven’t had a terrorist attack since 9/11.
Really? And, that’s because of Bush?
I don’t think so.
On 2/26/1993, the World Trade Center was “bombed” by men who were backed by al-Qaeda. The bombing killed 6 people and injured over a thousand more. Our government “protected” us for another 8 years from al-Qaeda, until the planes flew into the towers and the Pentagon.
Did the Clinton administration do enough? Looking back, no it didn’t. But, did we as Americans care? No, we were too worried about where Clinton was sticking his penis than about some guy name Bin Laden.
Should we feel safe as a nation because the Bush administration is protecting us?
No, we shouldn’t. There are those people out there who hate our guts. It doesn’t matter what we do, what we say, they will always want to destroy us. Will they succeed?
No way. Bomb a few buildings, kill some of our citizens, but America will never die — NEVER. We’re more than just steel. We’re the ideal country. Do we have flaws? Yeah, we sure do, but if I was given a million dollars tomorrow and told I could live anywhere in the world, I’d just buy a bigger house here in my adopted home state of Wisconsin.
