Here is one for people to think about.Submitted by erkyng2003 on Sat, 01/26/2008 - 23:51
According to our government. Before and after 9/11, al qaeda told us that they could not defeat us head to head in a fight. But what they also said is that they would hit us where it hurt most, the economy. So back to 9/11. Al qaeda attacked the world trade center( at the time the center of the world economy) and the pentagon( symbol of our military industrial complex). Clearly more symbolic than to try and kill a lot of people. After 9/11 al qaeda talked about dragging America into a war( well they got two so far.) So fast forward to today, our economy is in the tank, we are stuck in two wars that are bankrupting this country and al qaedas numbers are growing around the world EVERYDAY. So tell me who is truly winning this war? This thought seems to me to be the missing link in Ron Paul's presentation on the war and the effect it has on the economy. If people were given this thought to ponder maybe they would more easily see the truth. Let me know what you think and add any references that you may find to support this.
