I heard news this week that I have waited almost 10 years to hear. Another tyrant bit the dust. If that don’t shine your shoes, nothing will.
I think one of the main reasons the mission was a success is due to the fact that the media didn’t get wind of it. As we all know, there are people out there who want to make a name for themselves and will go to great lengths to accomplish their goal, no matter who gets hurt in the process.
I sure did get my calculations all wrong. I figured his own people would get him because they were afraid of him. One sure way to get hurt is to make someone scared of you.
I knew a deputy in Knott County in the early ‘70s who made that mistake. He was a good man, but he made a drunk afraid of him and that drunk killed him. I remember his name because I knew him quite well, but I won’t mention it. I had talked to him the day before he was killed.
Hussein’s two sons were located and killed for the same reason. The people were afraid of them, and that reward kept looking better and better. I know you have all heard the saying, “Money talks,” and it sure did on that occasion.
Now we need a new deck of cards for Al Qaeda. I saw the news clip for the second tower being hit, and they said it was going so fast it’s a wonder it didn’t break apart in flight because it wasn’t built to fly so fast.
My theory is that they figured if they could knock them over they would increase the casualty toll, and when the second pilot saw the first tower on fire and still standing, he really poured the coal on.
Even though the Twin Towers did come down, I don’t think that was the way the culprits intended for them to come down.
The truth of the matter is we got caught sleeping, just like Pearl Harbor. Four planes are hijacked and nobody did anything to prevent them from reaching their target except the heroes on the fourth plane, which was probably headed for the White House.
And that’s all from the funny farm until next time.
