Don't you all remember when the New York Times said "God is Dead"??? Hell, they even posted that as their headline.|
Guess what? They were wrong. But none of the politicians have realized that even to this day. They beleive it explicitly, and its proven by their actions.
Gen, you wrote;
"The truth is this: While there are plenty of terrorists nearly all of them are cowards. Oh sure, they'll try to send a bomb in a toner cartridge from Yemen (exactly how many toner cartridges are manufactured in Yemen, may I ask?) while they sit on the ground chortling at their grand attempt to blow a plane up. There are terrorists who will pack a van full of what they think are explosives and park it near a Christmas Tree lighting ceremony, intending to kill dozens if not hundreds of people, including children, by remote control using a cell phone while safely beyond the expected blast radius."
"There are damn few terrorists, and most of them seem to have an IQ well below room-temperature, who are willing to die in the commission of their intended act. This appears to be a matter of innate wiring of the human brain, and is a good thing."
That all made me think what a great description of those who sit in the halls of power. You described them to a f-in 'T'. Only they didn't kill a few, they get into the millions. I can't think of any other terrorists anywhere who do more to make my life miserable, than those in the same halls of power as the non-beleivera.
Anyway, Happy Holidays Gen and all. I sincerely hope you don't really need such a huge pile of sticks in 2011....
