I’ve been holding this back since Christmas but…
HE BLEW UP HIS CROTCH!
The best Al Queda has to offer screwed up and blew up his crotch! And people are afraid of this? How can we be truly afraid of an enemy that simply mutilates itself? I am reminded of “The Life of Brian” from the great Python’s, and their Crack Suicide Squad.
Seriously….the Republicans are afraid of a crotch bomber? They were okay with the shoe bomber, Richard Reid – that was simply footwear. It was okay for Bush to wait six days to address the nation about the shoe bomber – shoes are fine, family friendly perhaps, but oh no crotches on the other hand – those are dangerous and we should torture the kid to find out what else he knows! Of course a rational person would think that blowing up your own crotch might be torture enough – even if self-inflicted.
All I can say is if I am forced to take my underwear off at the airport I might never fly commercial again. It’s bad enough I have to take off my shoes. Seriously – people have been hijacking planes since planes started carrying passengers but a few folks try to blow them up while hijacking and now we have to strip to fly.
Imagine flying the friendly drafty skies in your birthday suit, sitting next to strangers. Body odor will be the least of your troubles.
One solution that’s been presented are these “Total Recall” like scanning devices that take some sort of x-ray of you. I hate that idea. It’s a complete violation of privacy not to mention I am concerned about any health side effects that it might present – and I do so want children someday soon.
It is reassuring though to hear a U.S. President hold himself accountable for the mistakes of those subordinate to him. For far too many years we have heard Politicians blaming everyone but themselves – it was a common theme in the Bush administration – as an example not once did they apologize for getting the intel on Iraq wrong- poor Intel that led to the deaths of 4,000 U.S. soldiers. Those times have changed, we have a leader in the White House for once.
I wonder what body part Al Queda will try to blow up next?
By the way – if you’re enemy’s form of combat is to kill himself – just wait – sooner or later you won’t have an enemy.
