Invading the Islamic country du jour
From the Independent Institute:
If President Bush and his security apparatus really want to make us safer, they should use the alert system differently. Every time the U.S. government meddles overseasâ€”for example, needlessly invading the Islamic country du jourâ€”and enlarges the bullâ€™s eye already painted on us here at home, the alert level should be raised a notch. Thus, in this election year, voters would have a better idea of exactly how safe government actions overseas were making all of us here at home. Gauging from the sheepishly revised State Department report showing that terrorism has recently been on the rise, the threat to America posed by the Bush administrationâ€™s foreign policy is clearly in the red zone.
