Terrorism, terrorism, terrorism..... so much BS. This administration relies on fear, fear and more fear to keep them going. This is all they have left going for them, and this tiny sliver of credibility is being shredded each time they put out yet another phoney terror warning. With each incident of crying wolf, the people will eventually ignore them.
Al Qaeda, al qaeda, al qaeda. Al f*cking qaeda. Goddamit, that is all we ever hear of from the administration and the media. Does Al f$cking Qaeda even exist?
One of these days people are going to realize that there is far, far more danger in being struck by lightning, being run over by a bus, seeing a flying saucer or catching tuberculosis than being involved in an "al qaeda" related terror attack, real or otherwise. Terrorism in the United States has always been an extremely rare event. What attacks there have been, most are domestic terrorism (abortion clinic bombers, the Unabomber, anthrax distribution, the Olympics bomber, the Maryland sniper, inner city gang driveby shootings etc,).
International terrorism meanwhile is one of the rarest forms of violent incident on the US homeland, and the Administration has milked the 9-11 attacks (for which we still have NO conclusive proof as to the identity of the perps), as if there is nothing else in life besides "look out everybody, there's a muslim with a bomb about to kill you". The Bush Administration needed their Reichstag (in the form of 9-11) in the same single-minded way a heroin junkie needs a fix to function; without the universally broadcast horror-flick of 9-11, none of their policies would have ever got by the US people. Now they can do what they like, by instill as much fear as they can with the media dutifully in tow, with zero rationality or reason. Terrorists have any number of ways of attacking us...air cargo is not screened, neither is train travel (more passengers go through Penn Station in one day than via all the New York are airports combined, and none are screened, and there have been NO attacks). Similarly, anybody could smuggle a huge bomb into a megahotel in Las Vegas and kill thousands, such is the lack of security there. And if I, who visits Las vegas on occasions have thought about this while visiting the Luxor or MGM, then a terrorist group who wants to hit America has also. Not just Las Vegas, but any our the thousands of cities and towns throughout America. Essential infrastucture which would be a prime target for real terrorists remain largely unguarded, and have they been attacked? Oh look, under NAFTA, thousands of trucks can now stream across the US border without inspection...all approved by the "security obsessed" Bush Administration. What may these trucks be carrying? Al Qaeda agents? Dirty Nukes? 40 tons of military grade explosives to be parked outside a mall?
If the election is actually postponed...this will look more a case of these mythical "terrorists" (whoever they happen to be).... winning. They, not us, will be dictating the course of democracy in America. Who are these terrorists one might ask? Who is to gain by a postponement of the US electoral process? Bin Laden, the man who financed the Embassy and USS Cole bombings? Is he so bothered with who becomes president or which party has a majority in each house? Answer: probably not. And if the election is "postponed", what is to keep it from being perpetually postponed? We will be constantly "informed" that here is a perpetual "danger of an attack" by "al qaeda", whatever that may be, and life will never be the same again.
The people doing the most terrorizing are officials within the Administration...by keeping the American people in a constant state of irrational terror. When the IRA campaign was in its full swing in the UK in the 1970s and 1980s with almost daily bombings with deaths and destruction, the UK goverment didnt appease these real, flesh-and-blood terrorists, as opposed to the hot air variety by elevating their status to rock-stardom. They were treated like the lowlife they were, and now their organization has (currently) disbanded. BushCorp needs the specter of bin Laden and al qaeda, either real, or more likely manufactured...it is their lifeblood.
The likelihood of terror attacks has been inflated outside of all rational proportion, to control the mood of the people by fear of the unknown, the images of 9-11 still fresh in our national psyche. The real reason behind the the possibility of an election postponement, and why we are now being informed beforehand is most likely to keep the issue in the front of our individual and collective consciousness, and justify the phoney, unwinnable war on terror.
This administration relies on fiction, lies, conjuring tricks and false flag operations to "justify" their existence. Combine this with public ignorance and a complicit media, a lack of questioning by the public, and the unholy BushCorp-Al Qaeda perceptual alliance will continue to enjoy their mutual parasitism.
