Oh, It's Fine, Except For The Regularly Scheduled Terrorism!

So, Laura Bush says that everything's going just fine in Iraq. The problem, of course, is that "what we see on television is the one bombing a day that discourages everyone."

Now, I understand this isn't a fitting comparison, as we have not been invaded by an outside force and had our infrastructure knocked for a loop. But if there were one bombing a day in America-- one bombing a day that guaranteed that five people at the very least would be killed-- we would, as a collective nation, lose our shit. Hell, the last great act of terrorism against America took place a little over five years ago, and we are still losing our shit over it. Were there at least one bombing a day somewhere in America by terrorist forces, with losses roughly comparable to the attacks in Iraq, the American people would probably storm Washington and lynch everyone who had done nothing to keep us safe.

But they're not Americans, so they'll get their minimum of protection from terrorism and they'll like it.
