The War on Terror ... Almost as effective as the War on Drugs!

April 6, 2004 11:09 PM

The Congressional Research Service tallied up the damage caused by al-Qaeda in the 30 months prior to 9/11, and the 30 months following. They left out Iraq since there have been so many attacks, it's hard to know which are attributable to al-Qaeda.

The results... drumroll...

Before 9/11: 1 attack, 17 deaths.
After 9/11: 10 attacks, 510 deaths.

I wonder if people will ever realize that Bush exceeded bin Laden's wildest dreams by invading Iraq. Osama wanted a war -- jihad -- and not only did Bush oblige, he made it damn convenient too ... just down the street from bin Laden's cave. 9/11 was the greatest PR stunt since the crucifixion.

The only way to win is simply not to play. Terrorism doesn't work if you're not afraid.
