You know when I was growin’ up, or other baby boomers here were growin’ up, we felt safe. Because we had these vast oceans that could protect us from harm’s way. September the 11th changed all of that.You gotta be shittin’ me. I was a kid in the 1960s and I literally had nightmares about a hard rain of nuclear missiles coming down on this country. I figured it was pretty much inevitable, that it was only a matter of time before everything I knew was incinerated in the ultimate act of human madness. It had me very scared and I wasn’t alone by any means. So don’t give me this “we felt safe” bullshit.
Sorry, George, you’ve WAY overplayed your terrorism hand. Nothing a terrorist could do, even IF (a big if) one terrorist nuke somehow went off in the US, it would be nothing – nothing - like what was at stake during the Cold War.
