    Well, invading Iraq made have made those more likely, not less.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    If the Taliban or Al Qaeda thought it was smart or easy, they'd have already attacked us again. I'm not as worried about that because the global economy is actually very unstable since the 2008 crisis. I don't think it would take a lot of extra pressure to cause the markets to come unglued again. And we might not be able to stabilize them so easy with massive loans next time.

    The economy is still screwed, but ISIS to Al Qaeda would be like the Jeffersons moving into a deluxe apartment in the sky-moving on up.

    It would be like disneyland for terrorists.

    No, they know that attacks on our soil would make us come after them with a vengeance. They're aware that they can't fight us ALL OUT. They want to kill us with a thousand cuts and make this a war of attrition that costs more than we want to pay.

    Osama never thought that 9/11 would be that successful or that we'd come directly after them so hard. Most of our ME enemies won't directly confront us.

    Because those pieces of **** keep trying to push us into war.One only has to listen to fox to see that this is true.Their mantra seems to be Obama just got punked, he is a bitch, if Reagan was president he would do something.

    If the neocons have their way we will.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    If the neocons have their way we will.

    I think the last 3 Wars were unnecessary, though I would've tapped down the AQ in Afghanistan after 9/11. But unfortunately, we a choice to either drill, frack and stay with coal, or get over there and stabilize the ME, till we become energy independent. It's not a real choice.



    AP reported this month that sixty-nine coal-fired power plants across twenty states are expected to shut down between 2014 and 2017 due to current EPA standards...

    Tens of thousands of Americans will lose jobs due to plant closures. As electricity prices rise, it will be more difficult for energy-intensive industries, like manufacturing, to add jobs. And most of the country will see serious negative impacts on their cost of living from rising electricity prices. Electricity is an input cost in virtually every consumer product we buy—these policies will literally affect the price we pay for everything.

    That's nice .

    For what it is worth, I sincerely hope that you catch them all, and that that guy in Belgium is the last of his kind.

    Some have already returnd, those that **** their pants after arriving in Syria and fled back, those are now facing trial for supporting terror organisations.
    It's not those who crapped their pants who are worrisome, but those who did not.
