Many people here have felt this was a long time coming. And when I say that, not that we here deserved it, but only because it hadn't happened here, yet. Only americans in general felt that they weren't a part of the rest of the world.
That gave them a false sense of security when it came to terrorism.
it's not that we've ever felt INVULNERABLE to terrorism. if a major devastation doesn't happen first-hand then it's only natural that you're not going to put it on the top of your priority list of **** to worry about.
it's like a drive-by shooting in suburbia. simply not expected. but my point is that there SHOULD be a lesson learned, just like with this economic mess. and, just like with the economic mess, the lesson to NOT learn is "let's blame and go on a witch hunt!!!"

don't get me wrong. i've known the rest of the world doesn't care for us for quite some time. but i've also known that most of the reasons they don't like us are dip**** reasons by people that can barely write out a sentence. i'm not saying i'm starting to side with these mouth breathers. i'm just sayin that, the more i look around my community, the more disgusted i am with the people that reside in it.
