The US will "leave" Iraq. In reality, we'll keep our 14 Fort Apaches there and call it a victory. The US populace will be fooled into thinking we've left; the Arabs not.

As a result, there WILL be some successful strikes on US soil. My guess: subways, trains, shopping centers. Only a matter of time.

BushCo will then be vindicated and usher in Patriot Act III, IV and V.

Either that or the country collapses.

We are all turkeys today; welcome to the feast.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    (Same here in Europe - we're also being scared into tough law'n'order no accountability "anti-terrorist" laws.)

  •  This changes what? (none)
    It was always just a matter of time before another attack. The Iraq war may have hastened that reality, but from the day the towers fell it became logical to recognize that terrorist attacks would be part of our lives in the future.

    Even if you believed that we were struck by, or with the complicity of, internal forces - and I'm not taking a stand on that one way or the other -you had to know that once this "worked so well" in terms of amping support for an administration otherwise evil power-grab it would become a future possibility.

    Conversely, if it was totally external, what did going to Iraq - or not going to Iraq - do to alter the fact of terrorism in America besides increase the rationale for why we "deserve" punishment, in the eyes of those who hate us.

    But I don't think a pullout from Iraq, partial or full, should be viewed at all as a catalyst for more attacks. They were coming, regardless. Bush's policies just made it 100 times easier to understand why other countries and peoples would want to attack us.

    What's the clangor and the clamor? Throw BushCo in the slammer.
