    Duh??? Hell, we lost over 600,000 Americans fighting amongst ourselves back in the 1860's. Not to mention that in 2009, WE murdered 16,204 of ourselves WITHOUT any outside terrorist activity.

    Yeah. People have compared Detroit to Baghdad as far as danger goes.

    We can absorb another terrorist attack.

    Do you think that America is so weak that another attack would destroy us?

    No, silly goose, quite the opposite.

    If two nukes on an island that size didn't put them down for good, why all the kvetching about a giant well-armed country like ours?

    Not only could we survive, but I agree with Obama. What is the upside of fighting a War in Afghanistan for twenty years? I can't even see how, if we did, our odds of being attacked would somehow go down.
