Does anyone take the terrorists seriously anymore?

I was just reading about the latest terrorist threat against the United States, delivered by non-other than Al Qa'eda's #2 man himself, Al Zawahiri.

As I was reading about it, I realized something that's different now: I'm not concerned. Not at all. Not in the least.

A message at the end of September of 2001 would've had me very concerned.

But now? Nope.

And, yet, we're told that the terrorist threat is now larger than ever, due to the war on terror in general, and especially due to the Iraq war, with far more terrorists after the United States than there ever has been. That's probably true.

And yet, no concern.

So why no concern?

Answer: I feel protected. I know they're out there, but...I'm not scared. I feel perfectly secure.

Someone in our government must be doing something right.

It sure isn't any Democrat, though. The Democrats have tried with rigor to stop one measure of protection right after another. It seems to be their game plan.

I wonder why?

They seem to have gotten a bit of a boost, haven't they(?), from that report about recent U.S. foreign policy creating more terrorists than are being eliminated. Gee, that makes me wonder: what kind of boost would they get if we had another attack within the borders of the United States? That'd be a big failure for the Bush administration. Wouldn't it?

Wouldn't it?

Nah, Democrats wouldn't root for bad things (terrorism, poor economic indicators, high gas prices, public victimization due to moral corruption within the Republican party, etc.) to appear in the public eye just before an election. That's just silly.

Ha. look outside of the box buddy. That's all I'm going to say. That's all. You are SO blind its not even funny. You may have all the intellect in the world but if you fail to see reality then you're nothing but the next animal I see everyday.

Now that's just dumb. You might not be scared, but who says that's the governments fault?
I agree with #1 completely :/
