Don't Say I Didn't Warn You


The Anchoress is reporting that Al Qaeda communications traffic is at it’s highest level since before 9/11. Her commentary indicates that an attack may be quickly forthcoming.

This may be a good time to revisit a previous post about the next terrorist attack and resulting political opportunism.

Allow me to summarize/speculate to the current situation:

The attack will be Bush’s fault, plain and simple. The Bush-bashing meme will be that Iraq was a useless distraction that made even more of "them" mad, and that the huge holes in our security infrastructure (which Bush wasn't smart enough to plug) allowed these bumbling-yet-misguided Pakleds to wreak such horrible destruction. Look for impeachment ferver to reach a fevered pitch. Then brace yourself for the next attack while we're licking our wounds and pointing fingers in the wrong direction.

It is useful to note that Al Qaeda planned a brilliant operation in the 1990’s, executed it nearly flawlessly on 9/11/01. Only a few courageous airline passengers prevented an even worse catastrophe to the nation’s leadership infrastructure.

Al Qaeda and their Islamicist brothers-in-arms are creative, motivated, and very dangerous. Islamic militants are the most dangerous enemy we have ever faced. The President is NOT the enemy. I can't be any clearer than that.

The strategy of Liberty as Alternative to Despot-Induced Militancy is long-term, while terrorist strikes are short term tactics meant to derail that strategy and force an alternate long-term strategy of War With Islam.

So when the going gets tough, please don’t forget that the only cure for Militancy is Liberty.
