When Al Quaeda took out the World Trade Centre.... It wasn't a plan to Kill thousands of Infidels....that was a bonus.
What it was was a statement of their ultimate goal, which was to destroy the fundamental that the western world is built upon. The economy.
George Bush went in hook line and sinker, creating the $4 trillion war on terror... The focus on terror....lost focus on domestic issues and economy....and now we are all screwed.
Thanks George....so much that our forefathers worked for, you have allowed to be taken away.
