Hunting the Muse
brings us a precious little commercial positing the RNC was just invoking 9/11 to keep us scared. Normally, I just make comments to blogs and go on my way, but this is different! You can put your head in the sand if you want, but things changed on 9/11. Ever since the Nixon Administration and through the terms of the succeeding presidents, the US has not stood up to the evils in the world. We tried containment, appeasement, and running when we were hit. No more! The world will know, if we stay the course, that there paradigm. We will not run, and we will not hide. We will make sure that evil has consequences.
Murder Death Kill!
Don't forget, this country lost more people on 9/11 than were killed in Pearl Harbor, which plunged us into war then and in 2004. This kind of commercial would not have been treated kindly in the US then and it certainly belittles the memories of those who died on 9/11 and makes light of the sea-change from 9/10.
Of course, we invoke 9/11. Never forget what we are fighting and never go back to the way we acted before The Bush Doctrine.
