BTW, we are not hiding under our beds - we are meeting the challenge. What do you think Afghanistan and Iraq were all about? America clearly told our politicians "tell us all you can, give us warnings", so when our politicians issue warnings, folks complain that they are scaremongering. I personally think they don't tell us even 25% of what they know precisely because they don't want to create a panic.
If I knew more of what they knew, I might be upset with how little or how much they are saying but since I don't I can only conclude they are warning us on a need-to-know basis.
I'm still trying to figure what Iraq was all about. I guess it's just nation building - for their own good. Hell, I don't mind if my grandchildren have to pay for it. They need a new infrastructure and new schools more than we do.
