RE: What do you think about the attacks of 9/11?

I guess the POINT is what is blowing right by you.
Abu Graib was a tangent. A red herring. Get it?
The POINT was that Iraq wan't the defenseless nonhostile entity that someone brilliantly compared to Greenland.
You're right -- Greenland poses more of a threat by virtue of proximity. Were you actually living in daily fear of an attack upon your person by Iraq? Most of us weren't. Perhaps it was just foolish bravado on our part. Perhaps that fleet of nukular Iraqi subs is still buried in the desert somewhere...
