Monday, May 24. Our president gave a speech at the US Army War College. As you may expect terrorist threats were much on his mind and tongue. According to one of the fellas in the above article he mentioned terrorism in the context of Iraq, which is questionable at best, 18 times alone. Ok, there's nothing new there...
Tuesday, May 25. Warning! Warning! The terrorists have a "specific intention to hit the United States hard" in the next few months...
*heightened alertness and shaking*
"What can I do?" "Just be aware." "So you're raising the terror alert?" "No." "Alright... ... I must admit, I'm a little confused. No large cities have been briefed and you have no new information for us?" "No." "Nothin' uh?" "No. We're just saying, it's a big country, you know. We have reason to believe that something big is in the works, and we thought the people should know. In the post-911 world anything could be a target, and the enemies of freedom have shown that they will not rest until we are destroyed. So we must rise up as a country to meet this vigilance with a vigilance the likes of which history has never seen." "Ah, I see. So you ARE raising the terror alert." "No."
Ok, I'm back. Much like the poor sap in the preceding 'dialogue' I am confused. I'm really not sure if we're supposed to think everything is fine or if we're supposed to be frightened witless. I suppose it depends on what you're talking about.
