The bomb discovered in Times Square yesterday is most certainly startling but I’m afraid that we’re probably not looking at something that was attempted and failed but rather a very successful test run of bigger things yet to come.
Hypothesis: Is it possible to plant a car bomb in the very heart of Times Square successfully?
Answer: Yes. It is.
This just goes to show how vulnerable we still really are. At the very least, the folks who wish us harm now know that they can get a car full of explosives into New York City without much trouble.
I have no doubt that the United States will be hit again by terrorists. It would be unrealistic to assume otherwise. Muslims see the US as the biggest obstacle to their master plan so of course, we are a target. The evil west and all of that.
I would hope that when they hit us again we have a strong leader sitting in the White House. Someone that we could all rally behind in a time of great need.
The day is coming. We cannot afford to meet the day with someone in charge who has really never been in charge of anything. His professional credentials made up by a pool of Democrats who just didn’t have anyone else who could win on their own merits. Obama is our first “manufactured” president.
He was manufactured to do many things. Leading the nation, unfortunately, is not one of them.
When the next BIG DAY comes, I hope we have someone in charge who won’t simply pee his pants and ask for a PB and J when the going gets tough.
