The people of America are losing their rights and what their Country is. Who will stand to gain after these terror attacks? Bush Co. and his
What rights have we lost yet? ....Just curious. And for some reason, I don't consider "having the government know what books I take out from the
library" exactly counts as a blatant disarmation of our constitution.
It seems to me that it wouldn't be "convenient", as one prior poster said, for Dubya if there were an attack.
For instance, look at Spain. The current government at the time of the Madrid bombings was leading with appx. 9% margin in the polls. This was the
same government which sanctioned the troops in Iraq.
However,a fter 200 deaths and a few explosions, it flopped the polls: The new government there, which quite resembles a socialist party, was elected.
Despite the fact that it had almost a doubledigit lagbehind in the polls some one week earlier.
And what did the elected party say, prior to the bombings?
That they would remove all their troops from Spain.
Case in point, the people will vote on impulse and short-term effectiveness, rather than focusing upon the whole picture: That is, the elimination of
troops in Iraq for the long term, and the election of someone who is not going to effectively wage the "war on terrorism" will open the country up
to more, and severe attacks.
And yes, to avoid the bumper sticker sentiments, the terrorists would have "won".
I think pre-election is a prime time for them to strike, and it frankly wouldn't surprise me in the least.
It'll have a reverberating effect on the elections, as well.
