I've heard people on a number of occasions saying that it's "liberals" who hope for bad news in the War on Terror. I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like this, though.

Because we have mislaid 9/11, we have endless sideshow squabbles about whether the surge is working, if we are "safer" now, whether the FBI should listen in on foreign phone calls, whether cops should detain odd-acting "flying imams," whether those plotting alleged attacks on Fort Dix or Kennedy airport are serious threats or amateur bumblers. We bicker over the trees while the forest is ablaze.

America's fabric is pulling apart like a cheap sweater.

What would sew us back together?

Another 9/11 attack.

The Golden Gate Bridge. Mount Rushmore. Chicago's Wrigley Field. The Philadelphia subway system. The U.S. is a target-rich environment for al Qaeda.

Is there any doubt they are planning to hit us again?

If it is to be, then let it be. It will take another attack on the homeland to quell the chattering of chipmunks and to restore America's righteous rage and singular purpose to prevail.

Actually, another 9/11 would be absolute proof that the War On Terrorism is a fraud.

But, in the authoritarian mind, the murder of civilians is acceptable. Even desirable. Even funny. Terrorism is pornography to these people.

This Republican writer actually wants to see another 3,000+ people murdered (supposedly in the name of American unity) and suggests a number of places to hit - and this is considered "journalism" on the pages of the Philadelphia Daily News, too.

It is not the fault of the war's opponents that the war is going so badly. Dolschtosslegende is a myth, despite its many fervent proponents.

It was irrational thinking

It was irrational thinking such as this that put us in Iraq to begin with! ...and has kept us there!

I heard this peculiar rant...

This is the kind of thinking that spurred all the conspiracy theories..it is literally beyond my imagination for anyone to think another attack would be worth the kind of unity the Republicans enjoyed after 9-11. This guy ought to have his mouth washed out with soap.
