Al Qaeda 2.0.1. . . Full Strength and Threatening US

Here they come. Fully armed and ready for global jihad. Al Qaeda 2.0.1, armed to the teeth, Iraq insurgent tactic educated, and inspired to "provoke and bait" the United States and other western powers into "bleeding wars" throughout the Islamic world and at home. Wait. Wait. Back up. Haven't we been fighting Al Qaeda in Iraq so we don't have to fight them at home, on our own soil? I remember our King, George W. Bush, specifically detailing this circumstance only one month ago. Stating, "terrorists will follow us home...we must defeat them there so they don't come here" when describing a proposed U.S. troop withdrawal from Iraq.

But I thought we were winning. Killing Al Qaeda and insurgent leaders, cutting supply routes, bombing safe houses, the 'surge', list goes on. Sometimes we have even killed the same people twice. All this bloodshed done on Iraqi and Afghanistani soil so we don't have to worry about them following US home. That was what the deal was, right? We can't leave because they will follow as here is what we've been told.

Well, it seems staying in Iraq will not keep US anymore protected then if we weren't. Homeland security chief Chertoff has a 'gut feeling'. I have a gut feeling too. That the Bush Administration is playing it both ways. We are making progress, yet losing the bigger war. Are we safer fighting terrorists abroad? or Is it leading to more terrorists and more casualties?Are we breeding more HATE?

"By rushing into Iraq instead of finishing off the hunt for Osama bin Laden, Washington has unwittingly helped its enemies: Al Qaeda has more bases, more partners, and more followers today than it did on the eve of 9/11. Now the group is working to set up networks in the Middle East and Africa -- and may even try to lure the United States into a war with Iran."
Foreign Affairs, May/June 2007.

So watch out America. Here comes Al Qaeda 2.0.1. Revitalized by the Bush Administration and our media and classified under one terrorist umbrella. Al Qaeda 2.0.1 includes all enemies of the West. Al Qaeda 2.0.1 our new "one common enemy", seeks to regain support for the "war of terrorism". Coming to a town near you. Blow back at its finest. Rummey, Cheney, Wolfowitz, GHWBush, you guys put US in this position. Your policy plans, backroom deals, lust for oil, and lack of compassion for the American public has catapulted the U.S. into a period of fear, disloyalty, and endless bloodshed.

In the words of Barbara Bush to Diane Sawyer in 2003, "Why should we hear about body bags and death? It's not relevant. So why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that?".Barbara and her sons, and their Machiavellian colleagues won't use their minds we, the American public, MUST.
