Risk Analysis

Blaster noticed the significance of the story of the kid who survived driving a truck bomb in Baghdad. "[T]he terrorists can't even scare up enough suicide bombers. They have to resort to lies and trickery." It would seem that U.S. policies are not in fact creating terrorists faster than our soldiers can kill them off. I will take it one step further. If this is what they have to work with there cannot be a large enough supply that they can skim off the cream and then send them to carry out autonymous operations in the Unites States. I guess that when I assert that I am safer now than I was before it is not only because when I go walking north of Vliet after dark I am accompanied by an intimidating canine who loves me.

Interesting. The story I have been waiting for and spotted a coupe of weeks ago had to do with Iraqi civilians taking a chance and phoning in message texts regarding a car bomb facotry or some such in the neighborhood. Means they have enough confidence in their nascent government to step up and take a risk. Long way to go.
