The problem is that the reality is much more nuanced and boring than "The terrorists want to git us here, that's why we're there."I've never really understood that logic anyway, assuming it was based in reality. Couldn't terrorists just as easily log onto Travelocity and get a reasonably priced flight to the US regardless of what's going on in Iraq? Maybe they'd prefer Expedia or Cheaptickets. I don't pretend to understand the mind of a terrorist. But if our resources are tied up in a civil war in Iraq and the attack occurs here, how are we supposed to deal with it? He can't even come up with a decent lie. What a boob.
