RE: 9/11 in the Headlines yet again
What else are they going to do? Katrina showed us they are the last people in the world we should trust in a national emergency, so the "we protect you from terrorists" issue went down the drain for them. Their insane tax cuts during wartime have caused them to have to raise the debt ceiling FOUR TIMES to 9 TRILLION DOLLARS, so the "fiscally responsible" thing is down the drain, and attacking Iraq has totally shot the wad for them on the "competency" issue, and the Plamegate thing has shown them to be a bunch of backstabbers who would sell out national security to score political points, hence the "trust" issue is gone, aqnd the Shiavo case showed how these guys suck religious nutcase dick - you name it, it's gone down the drain for these guys - the only thing left is to try to get us to relive 9-11.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
