  •  London bombings (none)
    I would love to see an analysis of the "war decreased the threat of terrorism" from before and after the London bombings. I wouldn't be surprised if it was a major tipping point.

    •  Because it hasn't happened here yet (none)
      ...that's the only reason that 20% who thinks we're "safer" exists.  

      They can still point to the fact that there hasn't been another 911.

      IMHO, that's the only reason we're not bombing Iran right now - the Bushco cabal can't reasonably "allow" even a "little" terrorist attack here to create a rally 'round your President fervor as after 911 - because it will very clearly come back at him, that HE hasn't kept America safe.  

      His loss in credibility with the American people is a very very good thing - it's keeping the neocons in some modicum of check.

      •  this also speaks to the lack (none)
        of any sense of "altruism" in the Hideous Americans crowd -- geez, as long as the terror attacks don't occur on US soil, as long as they're in Spain, London, Sharm el Shiek....stay the's not our skin.
