The terror bombing threats over the weekend in London and Glasgow remind us how tenuous our lives are in the new mixed world of internationalism and religious fanaticism.
Are we, as some news media sites claim, in for a Summer of Terror?
Wasn’t the war in Iraq supposed to protect the world from terrorism?
Has the war on terrorism been lost — or was it never really waged in
the first place? What could have been done better? What should never
Do we fight worldwide terrorism by continuing to referee sectarian violence in Iraq? Or is there a better way?
Is the USA in for another big bang like 9/11?
If the United States is struck in any way by any sort of “foreign”
terrorism will the war in Iraq be even more of stone in Bush’s shoe?
Isn’t that why the world went to war in Iraq — so we fight the
terrorists there so we “don’t have to fight them here?”
And I’m going to keep talking about it. That’s my job
as the president, is to tell people the threats we face and what we’re
doing about it. They’re dangerous, and I can’t put it any more plainly
to the American people, and to them, we will stay on the offense. It’s
better to fight them there than here.
What is your take on this? What is your gut telling you? What are you sensing?
Are we in for a Summer of Terror or not?
Or are we now living in a permanent world State of Terror?
