We have yet to be hit again

Since 2001, the U.S. has yet to be hit again by Islamic terrorists. This is a period of 7 years. During the 8 previous years, we had been hit:

1) 1993 First World Trade Center attack
2) 1995 Riyadh barracks
3) 1998 Twin embassy attacks
4) 2000 U.S.S. Cole
5) 2001 9/11

Please note #2 and #4 took place outside of the U.S. They were hitting our military at places of their choosing.

During President Bush’s administration, we HAVE seen change. It appears to me that our enemy was engaged directly in battle with our military in Iraq. The desert is ideal for mechanized units, which is what our military is primarily. They have cut back the attacks in Iraq because the attrition is so poor for them.

And we want to CHANGE all of this?


  1. I am sure the next attack is yet to come. Maybe it has been quite at the home front but do not be mistaken...

  2. I agree. It is only a matter of time. What I was attempting to point out is that our 'occupation' of Iraq forced the enemy into a stragetic defensive posture. They reacted to our move, and are being beaten. Please note how I stress that we have yet to win.

    This war is far from over.
