Osama Is Alive and Well

From what I have read about Osama Ben Laden, he knew that he could not win militarily against the United States. However, his plan was to attack the U.S. on September 11, 2001, scare us into spending a fortune on anti-terrorist measures and starting a war in Afghanistan that would cost billions. Instead of telling the nation to tighten our belts in order to pay for this War Against Terror, we were told by the then President to “go out and shop.” When that same President took us into another war, this one in Iraq, Ben Laden was given a gift, one that he hadn’t even anticipated — another expensive war. Now we are living ten years after that brutal attack, have lost thousands of our service men and women, and have spent our way into deep debt. It is even uncertain as to whether or not we have the know-how to bring ourselves back to the ultimate democracy that has been the envy of the world. The American Dream is indeed tarnished, but surely we will not let Ben Laden’s dream come true. We must get people back to work producing products that once were the envy of the world and put this economy back on solid footing. God bless America!
