" Too Big To Fail
Too Small To Bail"





12/06/08

Incompetence Kept Us "Safe"

That's the hook for his legacy, he kept us "safe". (after one colossal failure)
But it is all BS!
Look at Mumbai. Ten guys, automatic weapons, grenades, ammo. Do you think that couldn't have been done at any time, any place in the U.S.?
What was to stop them?
Homeland Security?
Our strongly defended borders?
Our crack Intelligence apparatus?
No, what stopped them was that there was no need. They scored a great success on September 11. They have driven this country into panic, caused 2 wars, economic meltdown, suspension of much of our Constitution, ruined our reputation around the world, and shown us to be so reliant on massive force retaliation, that we are like a helpless infant.
Unfortunately, with the country seemingly coming to it's senses, and changing it's regime, there will probably be another attack in the next decade perhaps another "Mumbai". Nothing as spectacular as 9/11, that is no longer necessary in their eyes. Just a little reminder to kick the panic up a notch.

And sad to say, that act will pretty much cement Bush's legacy.

He kept us "safe".
