THE BIGGER PICTURE
In times of crisis here at home, there are no political parties, only Americans. For anyone with the ability to have our attention, i.e., political leaders, celebrities, and the MSM, to be playing the "blame game" at this juncture not only shows that they're part of the problem, it clearly shows they are unamerican. 'Nuff said.
For a better perspective, read this and this.
Looking forward, I don't see good news. Al-Qaida is watching our current crisis unfold with much glee. They're taking notes. It's no secret their strategy is to hit us economically. At this time, with everything we have on our plate, aside from Katrina, we're stretched. With Katrina, we're being tested like never before. It's worse than you think.
I won't be surprised if we get hit again soon by AQ. It's the perfect time. What you're seeing unfold in the Gulf Coast area, specifically New Orleans, is a preview of what will happen if AQ unleashes a nuclear or bio attack, or both, inside one of our cities. However, to have an idea of how bad that would be, you'd need to take the current situation and multiply it many times. In comparison, New Orleans would seem like a Sunday picnic. Unthinkable as this is, I believe it's in the works.
Kitty Meyers at Kitty Litter posted a chilling exchange from the movie "Three Days of The Condor" (1975):
Higgins: It's simple economics. Today it's oil, right? In ten or fifteen years, food. Plutonium. Maybe even sooner. Now, what do you think the people are gonna want us to do then?
Joe Turner: Ask them?
Higgins: Not now - then! Ask 'em when they're running out. Ask 'em when there's no heat in their homes and they're cold. Ask 'em when their engines stop. Ask 'em when people who have never known hunger start going hungry. You wanna know something? They won't want us to ask 'em. They'll just want us to get it for 'em!
We're seeing the answers to these questions play-out on our tvs at this very moment, and it could get even worse. Pray it doesn't.
