The sarcasm here is intended but mild. The element of truth is much bigger. We are forced to fly next month, that is, if we would like to visit with our family during the holidays. There isn’t a realistic choice, given that we are more than 5,000 miles and a continent away. Having no choice is the only way we go anywhere near airports these days; being forced to travel by air is a miserable experience in the best of conditions, but now, it has gone from miserable to horrible.
The couple of hundred wacky religious terrorists the world is “at war” with don’t have to do anything else, just make a threat from time to time, or perform some trivial and easy to accomplish “test run” to make sure infidels cower in fear and toss their previously precious freedoms into the junk bin with their water bottles. What could be easier and more productive for them? Not to mention how much fun they’re having.
It wouldn’t surprise me if the most popular videos played in terrorists haunts come from TSA. Maybe we could find our little Islam zealots by listening for the roar of their laughter coming from their safe houses.
Can’t you imagine their conversation?
“Hey, look at the little pecker on that fat infidel?”
“Whoa baby, that honey’s got some righteous titties.”
“Hey, O-baby, did you see that TSA warrior stroking that dude’s tally-wacker?”
“Check it out, they made that chick take out her implants … whoa.”
“My fav is the guy who pissed himself then had to get on the plane smelling like Osama’s toilet.”
If you think Osama and his merry men aren’t laughing at us, then you don’t have enough imagination. Who knows how long it’s going to take for a half billion or so people to get those couple of hundred Osamaites and”win the war on terrorism,” but the terrorists have definitely won this battle.
At least a never-ending “war” is good for the political right wing, and anything that works … yes?
