Can We Stop Being Afraid Now?

The details of the NYC Wannabomber reads like a Pink Panther script.  He created a Rube Goldberg bomb that had no chance of working, then cleverly left the keys to his getaway vehicle in the bomb car.

Anyone reading this blog could have searched Google and in fifteen minutes collected dozens of different designs for bombs that would, you know, explode.  This clown spent five months training in a Pakistani terrorist camp. The US military needs to find the exact location of that camp and be very, very careful we never damage it.

The Underwear bomber was another Muslim who went to a terrorist training camp and then crafted a comically inept attack.  His sole accomplishment was giving himself second degree penis burns.

He tried to bring the plane down over Detroit, of all places.  In most places a plane crash would result in substantial loss of life on the ground.  If he had Googled Detroit Photos, which would have taken all of six seconds, he’d have known a plane could crash in the city without hitting a single person on the ground.

We have had a couple of successful terrorist attacks on US soil.  The Fort Hood Massacre, where, as usual, the Muslim aspect of the attack was played down, resulted in 13 deaths.  There have been a couple of instances of Muslims driving SUVs into crowds, resulting in a few deaths and lots of injuries.  But the most successful attack, measured by how well it terrorized people, was carried out by John Allen Muhammad, the DC sniper.

With nothing more than a rifle, a used car, and an accomplice, Muhammad was able to terrorize tens of millions of people who were afraid to go about their daily routines.  It was a simple, inexpensive operation, one that should be easy to replicate.  Imagine the effect of a half dozen such teams spread out across the US.  It would be devastating.  It wouldn’t take many resources, but it hasn’t happened.  That alone tells us that Al Qaeda doesn’t have the money or brains to do it.

You are literally more likely to be hit by lightening than to be killed by a terrorist in the US, and given their track record, that’s not going to change, ever.  If you still have any fear of these bumblers, it’s time to give it up.

  1. Yes, we can stop being afraid. The level of stupidity of these “terrorists” is unbelievable. In the UK, some doctors made three car bombs as well. One was towed for a parking violation. Another just smoked. A third one was driven through the glass doors of Glasgow airport, inside the terminal. The ass clowns inside the car had soaked themselves in gas to get proper ingnition of the “explosives”. They were saved by police and bystanders. One of them died à month later, the sole victim of the attack, the other is serving 32 years.

    These guys were doctors! Unbelievable.

  2. Even though all of these “people” are bumbling fools, the nanny state is going to put new regulations in effect to protect us. How sad is that?

  3. Well said.

    John Kerry, when campaigning for President, suggested that we should not be unduly distracted by such attacks. But the American people love a distraction.
