Al-Qaida Last Warning
In a sense, though, it's irrelevant. Because Al-Qaida isn't giving us a choice between safety and risk. Suppose they really could do what so many people fear? Suppose they could set off a large nuke and destroy a city? Would we be incapacitated by our grief?
What do you think?
Bin Laden made a mistake. His mistake brought down two entire countries.
If Al-Qaida's threat has substance it only proves that they haven't learned a single thing from Bin Laden's mistake.
And in the end it won't matter if America is noble and just or if America is a blundering baby. The end result will be the same, and it will be a result that no-one in the middle east wants.
