So I feel like we are still losing the war on terror!
The point of the war was supposed to be stopping the offenders from doing their thing in Afghanistan and destroying their organization. Well it appears that they are still an issue for many people.
Here is an article where this is proven. We have gotten to the point where excessive bathroom use is enough to scramble F-16 fighter planes in a response to paranoia. Seems like another score for the other team… and we are falling behind.
With the economy in shambles, and thousands of soldiers dying in the war [I think the number is about two times larger than the people who died on 9/11... currently], you would think that something should change. Is that not what people voted for anyway, change?
We need a different approach, and I am not sure what that is. What I do know is that doing the same thing and expecting different results is somewhat related to insanity.
…and Obama announced the killing of Osama as if it were some kind of victory!?!
The real victory would be not having to worry about terrorism at all [i.e. not having to worry that you gave someone on a plane the wrong look], or even better, not doing whatever it is that we truly did to create the terrorists in the first place. I would bet that the USA has to have done something to someone [probably many people] to cause such a retaliation.
It IS possible that others just hate us… after all we never seem to mind our own business; but I feel like the response would be a little extreme.
By no means am I saying that we deserved what we got, because that is just silly. 9/11 was a tragedy and I think we better wise up and learn something from that day. SERIOUSLY!!! I don’t want to have myself or my loved ones being hurt by people, so if I can do something to stop that, I don’t think going about it in a roundabout kind of way is how I will expect results.
I hope everyone is still healing, and I hope the children of 9/11 will make wiser choices about our country than their predecessors.
Hope all is well…
