    by reminding everyone that the world isn't that dangerous

    3,000 people died that day, and we've lost even more than that in the wars, all these people deserve all the honor and respect in the world

    but since 9/11, 250,000 Americans have died in traffic accidents, about 40x the number of American military and civilian casualties in the war on terror, and nearly 200,000 have been murder victims, and the biggest tragedy DHS has had to deal with in W's 2nd term wasn't a crazy terrorist, but a hurricane

    point is we're overdoing it with all the talk of global fear and danger, we need to still go after the Taliban aggressively, but the media panicking about Iran, Russia, and every other country with an aggressive leader has gone over the top

    Got any idea why the world isn't that dangerous and why the biggest thing we have had to deal with is a hurricane?

    your choice of words indicate pretend patriotism.... I'm not sure why some on the right love these jingoistic displays while supporting the destruction of the things that actually DO make this country great.

    Truth hurt's sweety and it's my war too, just as it is yours. It sucks, trust me when I tell you it sucks, but it is ours.

    except I don't buy it for a second. The whole we're fighting them over there... thing.. ptooye...

    while at the same time firing the farsi interpreters who reaqlly CAN prevent terrorism because a bunch of them are gay.

    Great anti-terrorism measures.

    And thing is, there were 7 years between the two world trade center bombings... they are patient and they'll wait.

    And instead of greater security at ports; railways; nuclear facilities; food and water sources, they're nation building in Iraq.

    And that's the truth... not my war... not my president... except nominally given I never supported the first and the second has never stood for a single pov that represents me.
