The big discussion today is this report of a frightening airline flight. I'm sure the Dems will try to spin this as another failure of the administration, but that would make the PC party look like hypo. . . er, well, more like they've been looking.
On the other hand, this may have been a dry run for a suicide bombing, and one must wonder what would have happened had this been for real. Perhaps it was just misperception, but the fact that these Syrians checked out as members of a musical group doesn't rule them out as suicide bombers as well. If this was practice or a test, those fourteen could go on to bring down 6 or 7 airplanes between now and November 2.
Then there's more on an Enron type scandal in big media, falsely hyping their circulatons to either keep ad rates high or inflate them; either way to cheat their advertisers. It's not bad enough to be editorially dishonest, they're crossing into to fiscal fraud as well. There's a lot of dry rot in the fourth estate, yet they seem to still think they're entitled to tell us all what to think. This may be an important warning for us complacent Americans. Are we paying attention?
Los Alamos has been shut down by its director for safety and security violations. Maybe this is why Americans can't have nuclear power generation: We don't take necessary precautions and rules seriously. We also seem to suffer from attention deficit when we're at war, allowing politics to distract us from the urgent needs of defending the nation. I'm sure that there were people in 1942 who wondered why we were fighting Germany, since it had never attacked us. Yet the very people today who admonished us that we needed to understand and address the roots of terrorism are the ones urging us now to drop a strategy designed to do that. Of course, they are so blinded by hate after their loss of control, that they would throw away the sacrifices we've made and break faith with the Iraqis and the 20 or 30 odd allies who fought with us, in order to
appease the Russians, Germans, French and Belgians. We've done it before, so why not again? Why not take a break from this war on terror and use the money to pay for meds for AARPA members? That sounds like the argument of people who don't have children.
