Fighting them there so we don't have to fight them here

On this horrific day of London terrorism, I would like to hear one Bush voter step forward with a defense of the "we're fighting them there so we don't have to fight them here" theory of global anti-terror.

Doesn't seem to have worked for the British. And a majority of their public has always been against the Iraq war.

How many improvements to homeland security could we have made with the $200 BILLION spent SO FAR in Iraq? How many cops and firemen could we have hired? How many improvements could we have made to first responder infrastructure? How many more containers could we have searched? How many more Arabic speakers could the FBI have hired? How many computer improvements could we have made so law enforcement agencies could better share information on terrorists?

And they have the balls to call me a traitor. They have the balls to say I'm unpatriotic. Patriotism is a lot more than tattered flags on your SUV, a yellow troops ribbon next to your gas cap, or a bunch of fireworks.
