Nine Eleven

Ever wonder how would the world be different if 50,000 people had been killed on 9/11 instead of 3,000? The death toll was initially thought to be around 30,000 then gradually declined week by week.

Would fewer people have marched against the war? Would some of our "allies" even supported our efforts? If the world would be different one has to ask why? Those who planned the attacks and those who flew the planes had intended to kill as many as possible. 50,000 potential casualties certainly would not have dissuaded them from their mission.

Apparently, because we were lucky this time, lots of people were not persuaded in the necessity of removing a terrorist supporting, sadistic tyrant from power.

Remember that whenever you hear a reference to "the 3,000 who perished on September 11th". It was intended to have been worse. Much worse.

I also wonder how the anniversary of 9/11 looms in the minds of Democrat presidential candidates. John Edwards doesn't even mention terrorism in his "Two Americas" stump speech. Dean promises to pull us out of Iraq immediately. Kerry thinks it should be a law enforcement issue.

My guess is they are just thankful that 9/11/04 isn't closer to Tuesday, 11/2/04.
