I don't worry about 'terrorist' attacks
I grew up with the white-american terrorist attacks on Blacks in the fifties and sixties.
I was on the island of Manhattan for the first attack on the World Trade Center. I rode a bicycle right down the the site within an hour of the attack.
I was in the USA for the Oklahoma City bombing
I watched the second plane hit the World Trade Center live not on television.
The nerve gas attack on the Tokyo subway. The death squads trained by the USA at the Colleg of the Americas. The Beider-Manhof Group. The Red Brigades. The Symbianese Liberation Army. Pinochet's Chile. Israel's latest operation in Lebanon. Hezbollah's latest missile attacks on Israel.
I could go on, but if you don't get the point by now, you just don't want to.
I've grown up through terrorist attacks.
So why don't I worry?
1) See above. I've grown up with it. It's the norm for me. Like is short. Deal with it.
2) I live in the USA, and the current government hasn't done a blessed thing about terrorism besides closing the bin Sultan air base. (In case you don't know, it was the existrence of the bin Sultan air base that prompted Osama bin Laden to use airliners to attack the USA.) Unless I'm going to hide in my basement, I can't afford to be afraid of terrorism.
NOTE: I still live 30 minutes from the island of Manhattan.
3) Think about it. The USA has suffered hundreds of terrorists attacks, and all but a handful of them were domestic. People may not like the USA, but they know this is where you come to make M. O. N. E. Y.
People don't want to kill the goose that lays the golden eggs.
4) Who can take a Bush administration warning about terrorism seriously?
Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
