The Christmas Day Bombing Attempt

By no means do I profess to be anywhere near a security expert, but I do rely heavily on my common sense.

When Richard Reid (shoe bomber) attempted to destroy a Boeing 767 on a flight from Paris to Miami by igniting explosives hidden in his shoes, I don’t recall anyone blaming the Bush administration for allowing Richard Reid to board a flight in Paris.

The failed attempt by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab (Christmas Day Bomber) to bring down Northwest Flight 253 from Amsterdam to Detroit is blamed on the Obama administration from everybody, from Rush Limbaugh to Congressman Peter King for allowing Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab to board a flight in Amsterdam.

The Christmas Day bombing failed attempt proves, according to the chatter from the far right wing nuts and most Republicans, these people are actually disappointed that the terror attempt failed. It should be obvious to any clear thinking person, that people like Congressman Peter King, Dick Cheney, and Rush Limbaugh are interested in one thing and one thing only; A Black man failing as President of the United States of America. Now we have complete idiots like Senator Joe Lieberman advocating for the invasion of Yemen and Iran.

For some reason it’s always the cowards who have never been in the military, or anyone in their family in the military campaigning for war. We have troops who have been on three and four tours to combat zones, when will the cowards campaigning for war join the military and help the troops they claim to support? The terrorists are not willing to kill themselves to kill us because they hate our freedom; they’re willing to kill themselves to kill us because we give countries like Israel billions of dollars and weapons to kill them and their children. Until our foreign policies change, we will definitely see more incidents like the Christmas Day attempted bombing.
