America Will Always Get Its Man
-- Whatever The Cost

by Sharon Owens - May 5th, 2011 - Belfast Telegraph

It's useful to remember this if you have a grudge against the US, for this nation may be based on personal freedom, but it comes down hard on offenders, both native and foreign.

This is the country that dropped two atomic bombs on Japan in 1945 and which, alone of all the Western democracies, still employs the death penalty in some states for capital crimes.

So who in their right mind, knowing all this, would mount a terrorist attack on some of America's most cherished national symbols?

Someone who made a mistake. Someone who mistook our indifference to early small attacks as indicative of a lack of courage. Someone who did not understand America at all -- if you keep kicking us, at some time we will wake up. Most assuredly, that is not a good thing for those we decide will not leave us alone.  Usama Bin Laden just found that out.
