Just Not Afraid

Today being the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, one should expect to hear a lot of fearmongering from the lower circles of our media hell. Getting the jump on the idiocy was perennial pants-pooper Ted Nugent, who excreted a particularly odious rant about a conflagration- the death toll will be more brutal and widespread than all the peace & love dreamers could ever imagine. Ted's answer to everything (except the threat of communism in Indochina) is Guns! Guns! Guns!

Those who carry guns had better gun & ammo up no matter where you go, carrying at least 10 spare mags or 10 spare speedloaders because the allahpukes are confident they will once again methodically slaughter walking cowering whining cryin helpless sitting ducks capable of zero resistance. To gullible naive embarrassing ill prepared targets, there is still time to firepower up ASAP. Head for cover but retain an attentiveness in order to identify the evildoers and dbl tap center mass, then two to the head.

Ted will no doubt be in his bunker, armed to the eyeballs and waiting for the hordes to come over the nearest grassy Texas knoll. Why? Because he's afraid, just like he was when he went through extraordinary (and extraordinarily disgusting) lengths to avoid being shipped to Vietnam.

Me? I'm not afraid. I'll be getting on the subway in the Bronx and going on a three-borough train ride- no guns needed. I'm a New Yorker, like most New Yorkers, I'm just not afraid. Like most New Yorkers, I lost friends to the terrorist attacks thirteen years ago. This anniversary will be marked by melancholy, as it is every year, but I sure as hell won't let it be marked by fear.

Without all our regime change nonsense, would there even be an ISIS to threaten anybody?

All that acid in the 60s and 70s fried his brains into a quivering mass of paranoid bravura. As for mine, wait...what was I saying?

Yes! Dammit! If everybody in the World Trade Center had just been carrying automatic weapons and at least 10 spare mags everything would be so much better now. I get it now, I'm heading over to Wal-Mart to buy all the guns and ammo I can afford. On second thought I'll just stay here and nice movie about foreign invaders.

The argument is simple. In 13 years since that bright summer morning in New York, there have been zero terror attacks in the US (excepting the weird and almost certainly domestic anthrax deal immediately following) producing zero casualties.

Now, frankly, this surprises me. If a Jihadi organization wanted to make America even more dysfunctional, all it would take is a few random truck bombs and a couple of suicide mall attacks. You'd see institutional panic on an unprecedented scale, economic and political and diplomatic and military and law enforcement and every other kind of panic you can imagine. The fact that they didn't follow up their attacks is surprising - either they couldn't or they chose not to, but either way, the outcome is the same.

And while it is true that 9/11 was large for an act of murder, in terms of scale, loss of life and property damage, it is really only unusual for Americans. The rest of the world suffers attacks on that scale and larger quite often, so America's blubbering fear and murderous overreaction is pretty embarrassing...

I can't even make myself play the 9-11 game this year. More than a dozen years of that being used to sell anything and everything to the American public. More than twice as many American troops dead then the toll on 9-11, in wars that could have been avoided if Bush had COVERTLY searched for bin Laden instead of going Madcow-boy.

You should get a spittoon in here, the nice carpeting!

Don't worry Mr. Wanko Ze Dranko, in the so unlikely no one with a brain cell takes it seriously event of an invasion by ISIL, members of the U.S. armed forces will take care of things while you sit at home.

It'll be just like the old days!
