another war apologist myth bites the dust

"the world is safer because the terrorists are congregated and isoloted in Iraq now"

or so we're continually told.

Don't try to tell that to the people of London...

in Milwaukee. Well, we're not really fighting them in London per se--but they are apparently blowing themselves up there, so there's that many fewer of them. Woo hoo! Victory!

7. But what if they attack us here?
Will we end up fighting them in Detroit so we don't have to fight them in St. Louis?

9. I'd prefer to fight them in Texas.
It only seems right. The Christian fundies are spoiling for a fight. Let them and al Queda have at it and leave the rest of us out.

12. Wow, imagine if Saddam was still on the loose...
I mean, I'm glad the Real Threat (tm), Saddam, is safely in captivity, because god knows London was getting bombed daily while he was still in power.
