I actually made it today. Believe it or not. I had a dentist appointment and I’m notoriously chicken where those are concerned.
I’m also exhausted. What do they do at doctors and dentists offices that make you feel like you’d just ran a 20 mile marathon?
There isn’t much happening. I see Spain is pulling out of Iraq. It’s horrible that they were bombed in the way they were. But, you know, that’s why our government didn’t want to bring in other countries. Precisely why. After 9-1-1, it was easy for the world to feel sorry for our country, but when it comes to literally being physically involved and targeted, things change.
What I don’t understand is this: if they’ve done it once they’ll do it again. Terrorists will band together to achieve a common goal, the same with world political groups. Regardless of differences, if the results look like something they want, they’ll attempt it. There are already terrorist groups in Spain, who’s to say that they didn’t help Al Queda? Who’s to say that anytime that indigineous group wants a hand in something, they won’t ask a favor? After all, they’re all for one common goal: terrorism.
The entire world can turn their backs on them, but it doesn’t exactly send them out of existance. If anything, it will fuel them more. No country will be safe. I don’t understand how a few terrorist groups can make an entire world tremble and tuck its tail between its legs.
Could you imagine what it would be like if all countries actually did set aside unrelated differences and set solid goals on apprehending terrorists? But, no country will really know what its like, until they are forced to endure the same thing. Then, most likely, the US will receive the short end of it just for defending itself. There’s more animosity towards America than there seems to be for the terrorists. There will never be another “World War.” Countries would be conquored one by one.
That’s my two cents.
Okay, I’ll step down from the political soapbox.
I’m beat. Night all. Over and out.
